The Best Affordable Skin Care 2021

The Best Affordable Skin Care 2021

This post is brought to you by our Esthetics Experts Panel, composed of skin care professionals, educators + authorities with decades of experience in the industry.

It’s safe to say that 2021 has been anything but predictable. Unfortunately, the only certain part of 2021 has been the constant uncertainty in various aspects of our lives - including how our skin has reacted to stress. Our expert estheticians are sharing their best advice to help with the most popular pandemic skin issues they’ve seen this year and the best affordable skin care products they recommend for solutions - so you can feel comfortable and confident.

The biggest skin care concern of 2021? Maskne - aka breakouts caused by face covering use. Acne can be frustrating enough, but it brings on a handful of other problems: possible scarring, hyperpigmentation, flaking, redness and more.

In order to keep skin with maskne healthy and comfortable, exfoliating is still important - but you may need to switch things up to keep skin from freaking out even more.Our best recommendation for maskne and reactive skin? “Avoid any physical scrubs that would exacerbate already irritated skin,” says Teresa Stenzel, licensed esthetician and member of our Esthetics Experts Panel. Better yet, take a step back from any potential aggravators for a few days to be extra safe.

“Hold off on any intense products and exfoliation altogether until skin shows less signs of stress,” shares Barbara Arnoux, licensed esthetician and member of our Esthetics Experts Panel. “Be patient. Your skin will thank you!”

When you do reincorporate an exfoliator into your routine, our experts emphasize choosing gentle yet high quality formulas - so you don’t have to compromise on seeing results.

There are a lot of best affordable skin care products to help maskne and all the issues it brings.Our top-rated recommendation for maskne is Amino Mask, which is a gentle yet effective lactic acid treatment to target any areas affected by breakouts. Simply apply Amino Mask for 10 minutes over the entire face then rinse. You may also apply a small amount as a spot treatment to blemishes and leave on overnight to help heal skin, as well.

For hyperpigmentation from maskne, Skin Editor is an effective and moisturizing option to chemically exfoliate skin and melt dead skin cells. If your skin is more oily, Quick Refiner is the ideal option for a leave-on chemical exfoliator that features a lightweight gel consistency. If you want even more targeted action against hyperpigmentation, LightPlex GigaWatt Dark Spot Corrector will also help minimize acne scars and signs of discoloration.

Another major topic in the skin care world? Sensitive skin. People of all skin types and ages have struggled with skin suddenly becoming sensitive in some way. Whether it’s irritation, redness, dry patches or other kinds of skin reactivity, you’re not alone. If you’re dealing with sudden sensitivity of any kind, there are some really great and affordable skin care solutions for sensitive skin available that help treat current issues and prevent future sensitivity as well.

dry skin remedies

Many people have cited that in addition to sensitivity from face coverings, dry patches and seasonal dryness have been another big struggle. Incorporating a hydrating serum. Moisture x10 is a simple but powerful serum that works immediately to add extra surge of moisture to parched skin. If you’re trying to find the best product for over-exfoliated, stressed skin, Recovery Serum is You can even layer serums to get an even bigger boost of skin benefits.

One of the best dry skin remedies? If you’re not already using a face oil in your skin care routine, there are some important things to know. The benefits of face oil for dry skin or dryness are countless, but it’s important to know what to look for in a facial oil. Many skin care facial oils out there include mostly filler ingredients, and the biggest complaints users have about oils is that they feel heavy, slick, sticky and - worst of all - sit on top of skin instead of sinking into skin as it should. Thankfully, there is a new facial oil that is far superior to other oils on the market and doesn’t make you compromise on quality or results.

Dewluxe is a high quality, occlusive facial oil that melts right into the skin to lock in moisture, replenish protective barrier lipids and deliver natural dewiness - all while diminishing the appearance of fine lines. This lightweight, perfectly-balanced blend of argan, squalane and sea kale provides natural, dewy hydration to dry, aging skin. The best part about Dewluxe is that it acts as an occlusive for your moisturizer - meaning it locks in moisture so your skin retains the hydration it needs to stay healthy and comfortable. Apply it as the last step in your routine before sunscreen for AM and your final step after moisturizer for PM to maximize results.

the best skin care advice

Remember that with all skin care, simplicity and consistency are key for relief and results - as well as being gentle. "When your skin shows signs of stress, keep your routine simple and make sure you keep your skin protected and healthy," emphasizes Arnoux. Contrary to popular belief, beauty does NOT equal pain!

If you want to see long-lasting results to solve your skin issues, seeing a local esthetician will be critical to achieving your skin goals - whatever they may be. A licensed professional will be able to provide you with a personalized, targeted treatment plan that includes both in-spa facials and a specialized at-home routine of products.
