Skin Care on a Budget


Keeping your skin healthy and looking its best doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the bank if you follow these practical tips from leading dermatologists:

    • Cleanse, treat and prevent. Don’t let a 12-hour period go by without using some sort of treatment or product on your skin (sunscreen counts).
    • Use sunscreen 365 days a year. This helps prevent sun damage that could lead to wrinkles, age spots, or even skin cancer.
    • Get the most from your body moisturiser. In the winter, apply it to damp skin as soon as you get out of the shower to lock in the moisture.
    • Consider using petroleum jelly. This common, inexpensive product has several uses for skin care including:
        • – moisturising rough, cracked feet, elbows, and hands; dry cuticles and lips; and peeling nails;
        • – preventing chafing when running or biking;
        • – protecting kids’ scrapes and bumps; and
        • – applying as a child’s nappy ointment.


    • Use one or two skin care product lines at a time. Limiting product lines saves money and storage space.
    • Remember, a more expensive skin care product is not necessarily more effective. Some brands contain fragrances that may lead to skin problems.
    • Consider dual-function products. Examples include a moisturiser plus sunscreen and a lip balm with sunscreen.
    • Get the most for your hard-earned money. When choosing anti-aging products, look for ingredients such as vitamin A and alpha hydroxy acid.
    • Any type of imperfections which are not being improved by the above, call the clinic on: 01332 297397 to book your consultation with one of our doctors.
