Since my last post was about a skincare splurge, I thought I'd share some much more reasonably priced skincare ideas this week.
1. Use baking soda to exfoliate. This tip couldn't be simpler or cheaper. Pour a little baking soda in your palm and mix with water for form a paste. Use it to gently exfoliate your skin. We've actually mentioned this tip before, but I think it's a good one.
2. Try buying a glycolic acid peel online. Glycolic acid is supposed to brighten skin, treat sun damage and smooth fine lines and scars. This glycolic acid peel is similar to the one I've used before, but it looks like the brand I bought is no longer available. This one is currently $10.99, which is 86% off the $79.99 list price.
3.Try Bio-Oil ($10.00 for 4.2oz. on Amazon) for stretch marks or dry, flaky skin. This oil is very hydrating. I have not personally used it for stretch marks, but I have used it overnight on dry patches and my skin seems much more moisturized and softer in the morning.
What are your bargain skincare tips?
