3 (expensive!) skincare mistakes you might be making

Save money by avoiding these 3 skincare mistakes


There’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to skincare. Listen to your body, not clever marketing, and you’ll save money in the long run…

  1. Your skin gives you clues. Does everyone need an expensive night cream? Not necessarily. If you wake up in the middle of the night with your face feeling dry, apply an extra layer of moisturiser before you fall asleep, even if you applied cream after cleansing.
  2. Do you need to put moisturiser all over your face? Experts advise the paint-by-numbers approach. You’ll save on product by applying only scant amounts to your oilier T-zone and concentrating on your drier cheeks, for example.
  3. Even the best creams will perform poorly if you’re not hydrated from within. The quickest solution to dry, flaky and wrinkled skin is to drink the recommended two litres of water a day.
