Keep your skin looking radiant on a tight budget

With the economy looking the way it does right now, we’re finding that we aren’t able to splurge on the ‘nice to haves’ as much as we’d like to.

“Luckily, there is light at the end of the tunnel,” said Su-Marie Annandale, from Clere skincare.

“Keeping your skin healthy and beautiful does not always mean having to spend large sums of money on the latest skincare products.”

She adds that there are many simple, affordable, and easy elements that you can incorporate into your health and skincare routines that will work towards a beautiful looking skin.

Annandale shared the following tips:

• Taking care of your skin from the inside out is very important and the first step is to ensure that you are well hydrated. Be mindful that you are drinking enough water throughout the day.

• Exfoliate regularly, ideally twice a week, to remove dead skin cells from your body and leave your skin prepped and ready to absorb moisturiser. Creating your own body scrub is cost effective and you can make it to suit your skin concerns by adding either of the following to your body lotion or crème. Salt will help relax your muscles, sugar is gentler on the skin, ground coffee has the benefit of caffeine to constrict blood vessels and oatmeal is the gentlest exfoliant to soften and hydrate the skin. Add your favourite essential oils to help relax, soothe, or energise. Once finished applying, rinse off in the shower.

• Avoid baths that are too hot as this can dry out your skin.

• Lastly, sleep is vital. It is called ‘beauty sleep’ for a reason. When you sleep your body has time to repair and recover. Not only will you wake up with a glowing complexion, but you will also encourage your body to generate collagen, which helps fight wrinkles.
While the fountain of youth may never be found, by implementing these tips into your routine, you will help your skin look youthful and feel beautiful.
