In this day and age, all of us, regardless of gender, age, or any other characteristic, have an extensive self-care regime.
However, maintaining an expansive self-care routine can be quite difficult because, let’s be honest, products are expensive! Not all of us can afford to dish out tons of money on cosmetic products right? But while there are products you can skimp out on, there are some products that you should always buy only from high-end brands.
Want to know what they are? Keep reading, as we list out 5 products that you should always make sure that you the best quality of, and never cheap out on (if you don’t want to face problems later on, of course)
This goes without saying, but we’re saying it again. Never compromise with skin-care products, and in this case, we mean serums in specific. A serum is an essential part of a regime, and it delivers ingredients directly to the inner layers of the skin.
The skin on our face and neck is highly sensitive, and they only deserve the best products. Applying serum that has even the slightest inkling of a wrong ingredient can lead to acne breakouts, pimples, rashes, flaking, burns, and much more.
This is even important to keep in mind if you suffer from skin issues. Of late, a ton of skincare brands have come into existence to exploit the booming demand for skincare products, but you should only purchase from reputed brands that have an established customer base and trusted ingredients.
Sounds strange right? But, it’s actually not. shaving soap is a widely used hygiene and cosmetic product, as people of all genders use it to ensure a smooth and clean shave every time. However, a poorly made shaving soap that contains irritant ingredients can be extremely problematic.
When you shave, your skin becomes very sensitive and if you use a shaving soap that contains ingredients like strong fragrance, for instance, it can irritate your skin and increase rashes and redness. Furthermore, it can also clog pores and lead to acne and pimples. Always buy branded, high-quality shaving cream that has a smooth feel and calming ingredients like aloe.
A good concealer is an essential part of most people’s regime and rightly so. This miracle product isn’t as heavy as foundation, but still provides great coverage when you want to reduce redness, pimples, or those pesky dark circles. But a concealer will be able to do so, only if it’s high-quality.
Poor quality concealers can get clumsy and start flaking, creating a very unappealing effect. Furthermore, since it will be in direct contact with your skin, if it is made with sub-par ingredients, it will clog your pores and intensify pre-existing derma conditions. On top of that, higher-end brands also tend to have more shade options, allowing you to get a flawless, “no-makeup” effect.
Whether it’s for your face or a lotion for your body, a well-made, top-notch sunscreen is of utmost importance. Regardless of your age, race, or gender, protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is extremely important. UV rays can not only accelerate skin sagging, aging and increase wrinkles, but they can also increase the chances of the development of skin cancer.
As a result, a sunscreen with high protection abilities, that can moisturize and keep your skin hydrated while keeping it safe from UV rays, is a must. Many people have the misconception that if it’s not sunny, or you don’t live in sunny, hot weather, you don’t need sunscreen. But the truth, if the sun is in the sky, then you need sunscreen.
Last but not least, a cosmetic/hygiene product that you should never skimp on or cheap out on is perfume. For ages, people have splurged on high-end perfumes, and all with a good reason! The effect that a good perfume can have on your aura is immense, and it can very well become a part of your identity!
A cheap perfume can have a negative effect and seem more of a nuisance to nostrils than a compliment. Well-made perfumes have carefully curated scents that enhance your natural scent and keep you smelling good all day and night. Though many people may turn their noses at the price, we have to admit that an expensive perfume can have a great impact.
