Sometimes we have to ball on a budget....
...and that's totally okay! Finding effective skincare products is just like finding a great dress at Goodwill - if you're willing dig, you shall succeed. As long as you check the ingredients, its generally okay to buy moisturizers, lip balms, body washes and cleansers. After doing some research on ingredients that dermatologists would approve, here are the products you can buy at Target (or any drugstore really).
Moisturizer: Neutrogena Hydro Boost ($18)
You don't need to spend $80 on a moisturizer, plus chances are you're in Target anyway. This fabulous moisturizer contains hyaluronic acid which locks in moisture, and it absorbs quickly without leaving skin greasy or oily.
Zap those Zits with: La Roche-Posay Effaclar System ($30)
Dermatologist Joel Schlessinger, MD says "The system includes active ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide to target the major causes of breakouts...improves the appearance of blemishes in as little as three days. Best of all, this system is oil-free, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, paraben-free, dermatologist-tested, and suitable for sensitive skin". We trust him, so should you.
Got 99 problems, but dry skin ain't one.
Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy ($17)
This stuff is life saving! "It's excellent to heal dry cracked skin on the heels and fingertips," says board-certified dermatologist Cynthia Bailey, MD. It also doubles as a chapstick mainly because it is free of any potential irritants like neomycin.
Body Wash: Anything Dove is from the saviors above.
Dove's classic bar soap is widely recommended by dermatologists for the simple formula that gets the job done without anything that is harmful. This product is gentle and super effective and can be used for either the face or body. Plus, it's a dollar. One. Dollar.
