If you are going to spend huge money on buying cleansers and moisturizers then you probably shouldn’t. Instead, spend a small amount of it on buying the same type of products from your local drugstore. You can get great products there which will function the same way as your expensive skin care products.

You can look out for brands like Olay, Cetaphil, Eucerin, Neutrogena, Aveeno and Purpose. Also, you have to pick a formula that absolutely compliments your skin type. It means that if you have a specific type of skin, then buy a product that actually goes with it. For example, if you have dry skin, go for a creamy cleanser and moisturizer. Or if you have oily skin, go for a cleanser for oily skin.
