Good skin is one of those things that everybody wants—no matter what a person might say to the contrary. Unfortunately, somehow, we’ve become convinced that proper skin care involves the buying of lots of products, the more expensive the better.
Here’s the truth: you do not have to spend a fortune to have good skin. You also don’t need a plethora of products to make sure that your skin is well taken care of. So how do you take great care of your skin without spending a ton of money?
Coupons exist for a reason! Use them! You can find store coupons all over the place: in the weekly mailer that shows up at your house, in the newspaper, in the magazines you read and even at your local stores. For some reason people think negatively of using coupons but why is saving money a bad thing?
The trick to using coupons effectively. Use them only on products you would normally have bought anyway or on products that you’ve always wanted to try (but haven’t out of fear of spending money on something that might not work as well as what you already use). Don’t buy something simply because you have a coupon for it. That’s counterproductive.
Benefit from Brand Loyalty
If you are loyal to a specific brand, go directly to them if you want to save money on their products. For example, if your favorite brand of skin care is Derm Store, go directly to the company’s website. The website is the best place to find DermStore.com promo codes. It’s also worth using the company’s contact information to call or send an email to let them know how much you love their products. Many companies will send out free samples and promotional products to people they know to be brand enthusiasts. Put yourself on that list.
Hunt for Giveaways
These days there are giveaways all over the Internet. We even do them regularly here (we did one for Carmex a while ago)! Giveaways are great because they cost you next to nothing (typically just a few minutes of your time) and they can get good products into your hands.
Use Google to help you with this. Type in your favorite brand or the product you’re looking for and the word “giveaway” to help you find sites offering these types of promotions.
Make Your Own
Seriously. The best skin care product is the one that you make yourself. Making your own lotions, scrubs and cleansers is easy and super cheap. Typically it involves just mashing up some fruit or oatmeal and then combining it with water, honey or lemon juice to form a paste and applying it to your skin. There are literally hundreds of different recipes out there that you can use. Why not test a few of them out? You might become a convert to the natural and organic way of keeping your skin beautiful.
