When to Save and When to Splurge: Skincare

By May 31, 2016

Hi everyone! Today I (yet again) changed the template of the blog, and I must say that I like this one so much more! It has such clean lines and just looks so polished in my opinion :)

I have asked my dermatologist before what the difference was between really expensive skincare items and affordable ones, she said they are the same thing. Is it just me, or are skincare products getting smaller and more expensive? Anyways, I watched a CNN special about it last night and I thought it was really interesting and I wanted to share it with you guys, because the skincare companies have definitely tricked me! They interviewed a few dermatologists and the main thing they said was that a $10 moisturizer and a $200 moisturizer are the same thing... deja vu back to what my dermatologist said months before! I have been using Clinique Moisture Surge Gel thinking I was doing such great things to my skin. Turns out, I was wrong. In the study they did, they compared La Mer face cream (which is a whopping $310!!!!) to drugstore lotion. They did the same thing, temporarily moisturize your face. Another really interesting thing I found was that there is no such thing as a wrinke-rewinder, and there are only two anti-aging product on the market. That is what really got me! They said that when wrinkles are there, they do not magically go away. They can seem like they do, but you cannot reverse the crevices in your skin. Also, the most powerful anti-aging serum you could ever buy is... SUNSCREEN! Sun is one of the leading causes of wrinkles, so wear your sunscreen to prevent wrinkles, sunburns, and skin cancer! You can also use Retinol to help. It basically peels off a thin layer of your skin so wrinkles cannot become very deep, deep skin cancer cannot form, and it also helps with blackheads and whiteheads. I hope this helps you guys, I know it helped me!
