Who would go into a store to get an expensive moisturizer that is so-so? 


Imagine you wake up, and your skin feels like sandpaper...and wait...are those pimples?

Perhaps it's time for you to explore a new skincare routine! 



So, you go into a makeup store to get some skincare products...but the moment you're in, you realize nothing is in your budget. What will you do? 


If you're not in a place where you can afford $60 moisturizer, listen up! 


What if you could get brands like CeraVe, Aveeno, and more for under $20? Your road to high quality, affordable skincare starts here with these brands. Let's go shopping!



1. Cerave for Glowing Skin


CeraVe is the #1 dermatologist-recommended brand. These products help keep your skin healthy by protecting your skin barrier. I got this brand recommended by my dermatologist, and after just a few days, my skin was glowing from the moisturizing lotion


CeraVe makes your skin:


  • Lush: this cream will leave your skin feeling hydrated and loved.
  • Glow: something about this cream leaves your skin glowing and dewy. If you're looking for that healthy and happy skincare look, this is the cream for you!
  • Smooth: CeraVe's already smooth texture coats your pores in light cream and adds to your skin's texture. 


Price:  In your local drugstore, you would find these products at around $7-$20!


 2. Cetaphil Non-Abrasive Skin Cleansers


I use the Cetaphil foaming facial cleanser (let me say it is the best facial cleanser I have ever used). This brand is also recommended by dermatologists, like CeraVe.


Cetaphil is known to be:


  • Gentle: not abrasive to the skin
  • Soap-free: which irritates your skin less
  • Moisturizing
  • Clears up acne

Price: These products are about $7-$15. 


3. Eucerin for Dry and Cracked Skin


We have been using a lot of hand sanitizer during this global pandemic, making our hands very dry. I have used Eucerin on dry skin for the last decade, and it has been nothing but beneficial.


Eucerin products are perfect for this new issue because it treats:


  • Acne
  • Chapped lips
  • Cracked skin
  • Cold sores 


Price: Depending on the item and size, Eucerin can range from $7-$25.


4. Aveeno for Youthful Skin


Aveeno also uses SPF (specifically in their Positively radiant daily moisturizer), meaning built-in sunscreen. 


These products are perfect for:


  •  Dry skin
  • Wanting to create youthful and soft skin
  •  Smoothing and moisturizing your skin

 

Price: Aveeno can range as well, from $8-25.


5. Simple No Fragrance for Sensitive Skin


The brand Simple provides hydrational progress for your skin. 

Simple has no fragrance or smells.


Here are some other benefits:


  • Good for your skin 
  • It doesn't leave a burning feeling when you use products such as Simple makeup wipes.


Price: The average cost for a Simple product ranges from $5-$20.


6. Neosporin a Simpler Way to Heal Skin Irritation


It is helpful now that we are entering these winter months where dry hands will be unavoidable. 


Neosporin helps:


  • Calm irritation on your face 
  • Heal dry & cracked skin 


Price: Depending on the size, Neosporin sells on average for $7.


So Many Skincare Products Are Available for Affordable Prices 


All of these products are also the same (if not better) quality than more expensive products. 


If you want to buy something right now, you can find everything at/on Target and Amazon, or at your local drugstore. All of these products work for anyone at any stage of their life, providing a lifetime of nourished skin.


Are you ready to go on the road to affordable skincare? Nothing is stopping you-definitely, not the prices!
