Skin care is an investment in both time and money. Here’s how to make it worth your while so you can get the most out of your Mario Badescu Skin Care products.
Addicted to our Facial Sprays?
Next time you need to replenish on your favorite face mist, order our larger, 8-oz bottle instead. It’s twice the product—but not the price.
Make your Drying Lotion last a little longer.
If you find that the clear liquid in your Drying Lotion seems “run out” faster than the pink sediment at the bottom, change up your Q-tips. We recommend using the thinner, pointed cotton swabs that allow for even more precise application—and also absorb less liquid.
Mask more effectively.
When masking, apply an opaque but thin layer over your skin. Doing so will not only prevent product waste, but also help the mask dry (and therefore, work) more effectively in the 10-20 minute time slot.
Take a minute to analyze your skin. You’ll notice that different areas of your face have different needs. For example, your forehead might need more moisture, but your T-zone needs some decongesting action. You could slap on one mask and call it a day (and you’d still get an overall boost in complexion), but multi-masking enables targeted solutions for each area.
Do you feel like your skin changes easily from day to day, season to season?
Keep a serum on hand to customize the way you moisturize. (Check out our guide on how to find the perfect serum for your type.) Instead of settling or crowding your medicine cabinet with multiple moisturizers, layer a serum into the mix on days your skin craves extra hydration or needs a boost in glow.
Remove your makeup, cleanse twice daily, and exfoliate regularly.
If you don’t do commit to the above, you’re allowing layers of old makeup, pore-clogging oil, and dulling dead skin cells build up. Which means:
- You may be more prone to blackheads and pesky breakouts
- Your skin appears uneven in tone and texture
- Any product applied afterwards (like your beloved creams and serums) can’t penetrate as well as they would if they were applied on clean skin.
Moral of the story: Start with a clean slate every morning and before bed.
