Saving Money on Youthful Healthy Skin

At some point, you’ve likely sat across from a skin-care specialist and been delivered the product list required for ageless skin. At the moment, it all sounds so great. But when you get home with hundreds of dollars worth of potions and creams that will take 45-minutes to apply each day, reality hits. You don’t need this stuff.

Skincare is a big business, and yes, there are specialty products that help with specific conditions. There are things that can reduce wrinkles and dark spots and help treat your individual needs. But, to keep healthy young skin, your anti-aging routine only needs about three steps.


The first is making sure you wash your face regularly. Depending on the type of skin you have, the process may differ slightly. Those with dry skin can choose a hydrating cleanser that isn’t foaming. For people with oily skin, choosing a foaming cleanser is the right choice. People with oily skin may have to wash a little more frequently.

Sunscreen is the next step in a useful anti-aging skincare routine. UV rays harm the skin no matter what time of year, so applying a layer of SPF 30 sunscreen to your face each day helps skin stand up to the abuse, If you spend hours and hours out in the sun, or do a lot of sweating, reapply as needed.

Lastly, you’ll want to address any specific issues you have. If skin is dry, you can purchase any moisturizer or serum to add hydration. There are also products that can help reduce lines and wrinkles, dark spots, fight acne, and more. Most of the time, you can get by with one or two creams or serums as needed.

Skincare doesn’t need to be a 10-step, pricey process. In addition to a healthful diet, a simple skincare routine based around washing, UV protection, and moisturizing is likely all you need.
