1. Know Your Skin Type

First thing is to do is know your skin type. Because when you have proper knowledge of your skin, you’ll be able to select the right products.

There are 4 different skin types- oily, dry, combination, normal, and sensitive. And if you use the wrong one, it can cause side effects and may affect your budget, so choose the right product according to your skin type.

2. Eliminate Products You Don’t Need

Using a lot of unwanted things is what increases your budget. So add only those products in your skincare routine that you need the most.

Don’t end up picking up new products just because a blogger or celebrity recommends it. For eg. If you are under the age of 25, you don’t really need to use a chemical exfoliator or AHA peel. So try to avoid buying unnecessary things.
