The beauty industry is a multibillion-dollar industry consisting of cosmetics, perfumes, skin & hair care, nail salons, spas just to name a few. We all contribute to this industry on some level. Consumers buy cosmetics, shaving cream or barrettes for your child. The largest percentage of sales are from skin care and or cosmetics.
Skin care products can be expensive and I’m really working at being more fiscally responsible. A lot of my money is spent on fashion/clothing, beauty products and food. I usually buy cosmetics that are on sale and a lot of my products are from retail/chain and drug stores like Target and Walgreens. Department store cosmetics are more expensive and are sometimes overrated, I rock with what I can afford.
Beauty products are not one size fit all you must find products that not only work with your complexion but with your skin type.
Truthfully, most of us can get by with using a tub of Vaseline and drinking PLENTY of (you should drink half of your body weight) water to achieve healthy skin. You can also try using home remedies. I make my own sugar scrub that works as a skin exfoliate and removes chaffing, I combine sugar, honey and lemon. I’m always experimenting with something! I’ve seen people use gelatin and egg whites to make a facial mask to clean their pores. So, before you spend more money check out what’s in your kitchen!
Until next time…
