Lastly, find a moisturizer or facial lotion with SPF. The face, in particular, should have SPF every day (especially if you use Vitamin C products or Retinoids).
Write it Down!
Keep track of the products you try and how they make your skin feel. Be sure to give yourself enough time to truly test it out before going to the next product.
Change with the seasons
Be sure to listen to your skin and change your products according to your skin's current needs. For example, in the winter switch to a heavier moisturizer.
Avoid overpaying for your skincare staples simply because of brand. Instead, look for lower cost substitutions or dupes for your favorites too! Once you have your products wait for sales to stock up and save!
Testing out products can cost a lot but once you find effective products for your skin they usually last for a long time. I typically only buy skincare products twice a year, usually during the Sephora sale.
