3 Affordable Skin Care Must Haves

Well hey….it’s been more that a minute since I have posted anything new…what can I say besides…#momlife? In an attempt to get back on board this train I wanted to share 3 AFFORDABLE products that will do great favors for your skin as the summer months approach.

Since becoming a Maskcara Artist last year…I have really been more conscious of how my skin looks. Those close up photos are about as forgiving as a new pair of skinny jeans. It is also no surprise that I am a sucker for Prime Shipping and affordability. Each of these products you can find on Amazon. Each of these are super affordable. And Each will help you out…even on their own. I have been more diligent about using these each day and while I have never tried an expensive skin care regiment, I feel confident in the results I have seen in my own skin.

First product is kinda scary…and it took me forever to get on board with it. I got the idea from Kristin over at http://www.growingupgill.com , she is a super fan of dermaplaning. And while this is pretty much shaving your face, I really think it has been a game changer! My makeup lays better, and I feel like my skin reaps more benefits from my products when I do this regularly. I have not noticed any difference in how the peach fuzz grows back, and I didn’t even have noticeable peach fuzz to begin with. Dermaplaning is a great exfoliator also! Definitely read up on it if you have questions…and if your have a local spa or esthetician that offers the service, hit them up! I unfortunately don’t have access to a pro that offers this…that I know of…

These are the  razors that I use. I toss them after each use. It takes me less than 5 minutes and I follow these steps. (Please note I am NOT an esthetician, so don’t take my advice or tips as such, I’m just a girlfriend passing on what I do.)

  • I wash and dry my face. Then I apply the toner that I will talk about next.
  • I start on one side of my face and lightly pull the skin taught.
  • Holding the razor at a 45 degree angle I lightly run it downward along my face.
  • I  continue to run it downward, with the growth of the peach fuzz, avoiding the eye area. Wiping the razor on a clean towel to remove the hair and skin after each swipe.
  • Be careful not to get your brows, and be super careful around your nose…if you decide to do that area.
  • The last section I do is my forehead.
  • After I am done, I run another pass of toner across my face and then apply my serum and moisturizer.

Second product is a simple face serum. This is currently my fave. It is super affordable at less than $10. And I love the effect that the vitamin C is having on my skin. I have not had nearly the amount of pore clogs or zits since using this nightly. And I want to give this option a try soon!

Last product has been in rotation for a while. You really can’t beat this toner. I have talked about this in earlier posts…and I am still using it. I purchased my current bottle last July and I am still using it. It lasts a while! Besides using it on my face each morning and when I dermaplane, it works great to help control sweat odor if you swipe it on your pits. Witch Hazel has so many amazing uses!
