I personally believe moisturizers are a huge must in any skincare routine. Honestly, if you can only afford one thing I’d say the moisturizer. You want your skin to feel good as well as look good and if you don’t properly hydrate it, then your skin won’t look its best. It doesn’t matter what skin type you have, you still have to moisturize, and there are tons of moisturizers out there that target specific skin concerns.
It’s the question everyone has. It passes through our minds when we’re shopping at the beauty stores, looking at all the glossy packaging of these name brand products. Where should I spend my money? To some, it seems like a much better investment to pay $50 for a foundation instead of $48 for a moisturizer. To others, that luxury $80 four-pan eyeshadow palette seems like such a better use of money than that $50 serum. Now, it’s your money, use it as you like; there is no wrong thing to buy. Beauty is about experimenting and reaching the end goal of you feeling like your best self. However, why does your best self have to be covered in a mask of full-coverage foundations, concealers, blushers, bronzers, highlighters and everything in between? Skincare can make you look just as good by treating your problem areas instead of covering them.
