5 Ways to Make Your Skincare Go Further

5 Ways to Make Your Skincare Go Further


In these challenging economic times, taking care of your skin shouldn’t be a luxury—it’s a necessity that can also be budget-friendly!

At Ruby Rose I understand the importance of making every drop count, especially when every penny matters. Here are five savvy tips to help your skincare products last longer and keep you glowing without breaking the bank:

1. Right Amount, Right Place: Using the right amount of product is crucial. A little goes a long way, especially with high-quality skincare. For cleansers, toners, and moisturisers, start with a small amount, about the size of a pea. Apply it in gentle, upward motions. Remember, excess product doesn’t equal better results, so save where you can! 

2. Dampen, Don’t Drench: Before applying serums and moisturisers, lightly dampen your skin. This helps products spread evenly and absorb better, meaning you need less product to cover your face effectively. Try using a facial mist or a damp cotton pad to prep your skin, allowing your skincare to work its magic with less quantity.

3. Clean Tools = Happy Wallet: Regularly clean your skincare tools, such as brushes and applicators. When these tools are clean, they don’t absorb your products, ensuring that the maximum amount goes on your skin where it belongs. Plus, clean tools prevent bacterial growth, keeping your skin healthy and your products in use for longer.

4. Creative Mixing: Get creative by mixing products to create customised solutions. For instance, mix a few drops of your favourite facial oil with your moisturiser to create a nourishing blend. By customizing your skincare routine, you not only address multiple concerns at once but also stretch the lifespan of your products.

5. Reclaim Every Drop: Don’t discard seemingly empty containers (there’s still some in there!) Cut open tubes and bottles to get to the remnants of your favourite products. You'll be surprised at how much is left inside. Store these leftovers in small, airtight containers. Every drop counts, and by reclaiming what’s left, you’ll extend the life of your skincare treasures. 

In these challenging times, taking care of your skin doesn’t have to drain your wallet. By being mindful of your product usage and applying these creative tips, you can make your skincare routine last longer while still achieving that healthy, radiant glow.

Remember, self-care should empower, not impoverish.
Stay glowing, stay savvy!
