How to get good skin without draining bank your bank balance. Because there are plenty of budget-friendly products out there that do just the trick.
THE BEST BUDGET-FRIENDLY RETINOL (THAT ACTUALLY WORKS)
Like vitamin C products, retinol products often come with a hefty price tag, so when a good one comes along with an afforable price tag, it’s a winner. The key is to look out for products that products which list pure retinol as the key ingredient – and pay attention to the percentage of retinol. The Ordinary is known for their budget-friendly skinare, and I’m going to call it and say the The Ordinary Retinol Serum 0.5% may just be the best product in their line (and I use a lot of it).
THE BEST CLAY MASK
To be fair one of the few products that have l0ts of afforable options out there is clay masks – you don’t need to spend a lot. But Dr. Jart’s Dermaclear Trans Foam Clay is defintely my favourite – mainly because it draws out inpurities without stripping hydration. I have dry/combination skin and it’s gentle whilst still cleansing the skin thoroughly.
