I always get questions about the best drugstore products so I thought I’d share some of my recommendations! Today I’m sharing my favorite drugstore skincare products under $20! (Stay tuned for more of my favorite drugstore beauty buys!) Even though I love all beauty and makeup products, skincare is hands down the most important. (You can see what products to get based on your skin type here!)
Before I even begin to think about makeup, I make sure that I’m taking care of my skin. You shouldn’t wait until you are older to take care of your skin and you definitely don’t have to break the bank to have a routine!
I start by removing all my makeup—micellar water or makeup-removing wipes work well! This is super important because sleeping in your makeup can clog pores and cause breakouts! Next, I cleanse my skin with a gentle face wash to remove all the dirt that you can’t see. I use a face moisturizer every day. Even if you have oily skin, you should never skip moisturizing! Without it, your skin continues to produce oil to compensate leading to more breakouts and even more oily skin. Just make sure to use oil-free moisturizer (like this one!) For a bit of extra help, I use eye cream for anti-aging and to hydrate the skin around my eyes. Finally, I use body lotion—my elbow, hands, and legs can get so dry! These drugstore skincare products are the perfect place to start your routine!
This skincare routine can be used everyday, but I also make sure to tone, exfoliate, and use a hydrating face mask as well! It’s important to remember that you can use the most expensive skincare products out there, but a healthy diet and drinking lots of water is the best way to take care of your skin! What you put into your body is far more important than what you put on it!
