4 Skincare Mistakes That Are Costing You Money

4 Skincare Mistakes That Are Costing You Money

It’s no secret that it’s annoyingly easy to get sold on new trends and recommendations, especially with social media. But what if we told you enough is, in fact, enough — that the best way to save money this year is to cut back and keep it simple?

When it comes to skincare, doing so doesn’t have to cost you results, either! Saving money is as easy as not making these common mistakes:

1. You’re using too much of each product.

The fact of the matter is, a little goes a long way when it comes to skincare, so being overzealous while squeezing, pumping, or scooping out your product is costing you. Remember: less is more! Start by using a small amount, then apply more if needed. Otherwise, you’re being wasteful.

2. You have too many products in your routine.

Despite how “trendy” complicated skincare regimens with 12+ steps may seem from social media, more products do not equal better results. In fact, you’re just overspending on excess products that aren’t doing much other than cluttering your space and taking up your precious time. Simplify your regimen with multi-tasking products that allow you to do more with less. After all, you only really need four steps: a cleanser, serum, moisturizer, and eye/lip cream.

3. You’re not exfoliating enough.

As backward as it may seem, by exfoliating less, it’s actually costing you more to achieve the results you desire. Why? Because having properly exfoliated skin — AKA clear, unclogged pores — allows for your products to penetrate deeper so you can optimize their efficacy and reap more benefits.

4. You’re inconsistent with your regimen.

We know how hard it is to make time for self-care, but by not doing so daily, you’re missing out on your regimen’s complete transformative potential and, therefore, letting your spendings go to waste. And if there’s one thing our skin loves, it’s consistency — it’s key for consistent results.
