4 Tips on Adopting Skincare on a Budget
Please note that a skincare routine does not need to be expensive before it is effective.
Adopting a minimalistic or simple approach to cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting is usually recommended by most dermatologists. Furthermore, you don't have to purchase the most expensive skin care product before your skin can heal from its problem. Sometimes, it might be that you are using the wrong product or maybe, you are misusing the right one.
On the other hand, using too many products in your routine can trigger issues, such as irritations and rashes, especially if the products are formulated with harsh ingredients.
Thus, this is why we always recommend consulting with a professional before changing your routine.
In this article, we'd love to consider a few tips to help you build an effective skincare routine without spending so much or raising your savings.
1. Cleanse, Moisturize and Protect
Although it looks simple, these are one of the basics to maintaining radiant skin. Aside from being effective, it also saves time and cost. We call them a "3-step minimalistic approach".
Here's how you can adopt it. Before applying skincare products and bedtime, use a gentle cleanser like Blanco Facial Cleanser to remove dirt or impurities to prevent breakouts from clogged pores. Then, dampen the skin with a softening formula like Azulene Moisturizer.
Although, the last step depends on whether it's during the day. Apply sunscreen before leaving the house to protect the skin from wrinkles, age spots or even skin cancer. For this process, we recommend our ultimate Sunblock SPF 50.
2. Go For Multi-Purpose Products
To save cost, you can always source skincare products with multi-purpose functions. Hence, with one product, you can get multiple benefits.
For instance, you can use our moisturizer Vitamin C Cream + SPF 15, which contains antioxidants for preventing fine lines and SPF for sun protection.
We also have our Blanco Cream, which produces 3-in-1 effects – whitening, smoothening, and lifting. With these multi-purpose products, you save more because you may not need individual products for the specific effects.
3. Invest In Quality Skincare Tools
For your daily skincare routine, purchase quality and long-lasting skincare tools, such as face brushes, jade rollers, etc.
Remember, buying low-quality items can make you spend more on repair or replacement costs. Hence, we highly recommend checking the quality of any tool or device you purchase.
Meanwhile, if you need help, you can always message us.
4. Focus On FDA approved Products
We know you must have heard of FDA approval. Do you know what it means or how it works? Well, here's what you should know.
FDA means Food and Drug Administration. They are part of the authorities in charge of regulating ingredients used in a product, including the manufacturing process.
However, they are not concerned with skincare product approval. They only deal with the ingredients. So when a skincare product is labeled FDA approved, it means that the product contains ingredients there that were approved by the FDA. Also, the manufacturing process complies with all strict public health, safety and quality standards.
Hence, we recommend choosing FDA-approved products for your skin to avoid incurring unnecessary skin problems, which will lead to more spending.
