How To Save Money on Your Skincare

Have you tried and tested endless skincare products and still feel you’re yet to find products that really work? All those pounds later, this can feel really frustrating, and begs the question ‘how do I save money on my skincare’? especially with the cost of living crisis still looming.


Enough with the doom and gloom though. We have answers for you if you’re looking to save money on your skincare. Let’s cut to the chase and look at how personalised skincare will save you from inadvertently throwing money down the drain.


#1 Find out what skin type you have

You wouldn’t buy a pair of shoes without knowing what shoe size you were, and this should apply to your skincare. Without knowing your skin type, how can you know which formulations will and won’t work? Avoid wasting money on products that are incompatible for your skin type, and potential breakouts and irritation as a result of using the wrong formulations.


#2 Personalised skincare

A fully personalised skincare routine doesn’t just save you money, but hassle and time too.


Over-the-counter products simply aren’t geared up for dealing with specific skin concerns, nor are they competent for everyday skin maintenance as collagen supplies start to drop. For one thing, they don’t contain high enough percentages of active ingredients to make any real difference. Secondly, they can often contain ingredients that can give your skin a rough ride.


Here at Skinora, our doctors can identify products with the right ingredient ratios and find complementary ingredients across the different products (moisturiser, serum, toner etc), in your routine.


#3 Order! Remember to sequence your products correctly

Have you been thinking ‘I’m doing my skincare morning and night, and yet it’s still doing nothing for my skin’? This may have led you to the conclusion that it’s your products that are the issue. Here comes the ‘but’. It could be the order you’re using them in.


Make sure you’re using your products in the following order to maximise the power and penetration of each product:



  • Cleanser
  • Eye cream
  • Toner/Essence
  • Serum
  • Moisturiser
  • Spot treatment
  • Face Oil
  • Sunscreen



  • Makeup remover
  • Cleanser
  • Eye cream
  • Toner
  • Serum
  • Retinol
  • Moisturise
  • Spot treatment
  • Face oil.
