From different skin types to personal preferences, most beauty products are not one size fits all. However, there are a handful of inexpensive beauty products that every mom should keep on hand.
1. Concealer Or Foundation
Cover up dark circles, pimples, and redness with a concealer or foundation. Concealer is my ultimate must-have beauty product! Even if I go without any other makeup, I at least always have concealer around my eyes.
2. Anti-Wrinkle Cream
There’s no avoiding wrinkles forever, but you can certainly delay them with a good anti-wrinkle cream. Apply the cream over crease lines, under eyes, and in areas that are prone to puffiness. My personal favorite product is Olay’s Age Defying Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream.
3. Beauty Balm
I love this all-in-one product from Dr. Jart+. Beauty Balm is a moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum that helps brighten skin at the same time. My favorite part is how it treats pimples before they become too noticeable.
4. Deep Conditioner
Hair takes a beating! Aside from putting up with all the heat and styling we put it through, it also takes on sun and pollution damage. Revitalize your hair with moisture and volume by using a deep conditioner. Try the Miracle Deep Conditioner with Keratine by It’s A 10. It is my absolute favorite hair care line for ALL their products!
5. Sunscreen Lotion
76,000 Americans will be diagnosed with melanoma this year alone. Not only is protecting your skin from harmful UV rays critical for your good health, but sun-damaged skin causes pre-mature aging as well. Be proactive and invest in a quality sunscreen lotion. Check out these options from Sephora.
6. Hand Cream
Keep your hands looking and feeling smooth by using a top-notch hand cream. Using moisturizer on you hands will help them stay youthful longer and will also keep nails from splitting and ridging. Check out Total Beauty for a list of proven hand creams.
7. Body Moisturizer
I’ve always found it interesting that we’re so keen to spend money on expensive face care products, but that when it comes to the rest of our skin, we often settle for inferior products. But don’t worry! You don’t have to splurge to find quality skin care. Total Beauty shares 13 of the best drugstore lotions available that won’t break the bank!
8. Leave-in Conditioner
Here’s another excellent product to strengthen and enrich your hair. Leave-in conditioners are great because they provide all the benefits of conditioners throughout the entire day and protect against new damage. There are many options to choose from, but again, my favorite line of hair care products are from It’s A 10.
After concealer or foundation, eyeliner is my next must-have beauty care product. It’s the easiest and most effective way to perk up your look and bring life into your eyes.
10. Gentle Facial Cleanser
We wash our faces twice a day! That could lead to a lot of potential dryness, premature aging, and damage if we use the wrong products. YIKES! But on the other side of the coin, gentle, quality facial cleansers can be our best defense against looking dry, red, and blotchy. Here’s a list of 17 superior facial cleansers for 2017.
