You may not believe it but affordable and effective skincare does exist. When you’re shopping for skincare products look for products that incorporate specific ingredients.
Hyaluronic acid is a regular in most skincare products and glycerin and sorbitol are cheaper ingredients that help to hydrate skin. Vitamins A, B, C and E all have different qualities but ultimately will work to help reduce the signs of ageing and improve the quality of your skin.
Ingredients such as Niacinamide (a form of Vitamin B) work effectively at combating wrinkles and breakouts and are found in affordable skincare brands like Olay and Clinique.
Many women are under the impression that you need to spend a lot of money in order to get a skincare product that actually works. Luckily for all you budget conscious ladies that is simply not the case.
Often the more expensive products are a let down and the cheaper products tend to perform better in blind test trials.
UV rays contribute to 80% of skin ageing yet statistics show that women only spend around 3% of what they spend on skin care on effective SPF products. Skip buying expensive products that contain ingredients such as gold particles and collagen as they’re too large to penetrate your skin and will have little or no effect. Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid (£11.75 at Amazon) has a SPF of 50 and based on its value for money is one beauty buy you won’t regret buying.
