When it comes to essential skincare, there is the age-old question - should I save or should I splurge? There are so many products on the market, it can be tricky to pick out the products that are worth the hype - and your hard-earned money! Equally, there are plenty of products that you’re simply paying through the nose for. So, which products are the best skincare to invest in?
In a time where it seems, there’s a new product launch every other day it can be overwhelming to find the best skincare to invest in. Which products are truly worth the hype? We have put together some skincare tips and tricks that will help you design your own skincare routine, that you and your bank account will love.
What are the essential skincare products to splurge on?
Everyone’s skin is different and it needs extra love and attention in different ways. For example, do you struggle with under-eye circles or puffiness? If yes, then that’s the area where you need to invest your time and money!
Treatment-based products - the best skincare to invest in?
Treatment-based products are the best skincare to invest in as they’re tailored to your needs. These creams and serums are designed to treat specific concerns like signs of ageing, dehydration, hyperpigmentation, or acne-prone skin. They contain ingredients that are specifically designed to treat the area of concern.
Poko’s Correcting Eye Cream, for example, is beautifully designed with plant oils, CBD, and avocado to treat the sensitive skin around the eyes. Containing hyaluronic acid, this light-weight cream locks moisture into the area around the eyes. As well as deeply hydrating the skin, this cream also helps to fight the signs of ageing.
Similarly, if you suffer from acne-prone or sensitive skin - the best skincare to invest in, for you, might be our Soothing Serum. Carefully formulated to help irritated and stressed skin, this serum helps to heal the skin from painful breakouts. Being a lightweight consistency, this serum is easily absorbed into the skin to help balance oil production and prevent spot-causing bacteria.
There is no need to splurge on your skincare (unless you want to of course). Poko’s treatment-based products are designed to treat your specific skin concerns without breaking the bank. Our plant-based products are extremely affordable because everyone deserves to have beautiful, glowing skin.
Is moisturiser the best skincare to invest in?
One of the best skincare tips is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! This step of your skincare routine is arguably the most important. If anything is worth splurging on, it’s going to be a moisturiser. Dehydrated skin can exaggerate other skin concerns such as acne, signs of ageing, and dullness. A good moisturiser will bring hydration to the deeper layers of your skin, rather than just sitting on top.
We currently have two moisturisers - our Regenerating Collagen Moisturiser and our Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser. Both of which are formulated with botanical oils and CBD to replenish the skin’s natural skin barrier. This means that moisture is locked in and the skin is protected against environmental pollutants.
Essential skincare at a cheaper price point
You don’t need to pay hand-over-fist for products that really work. As we know, Poko’s skincare range is affordable whilst packing a punch. Our cruelty-free and vegan products do exactly what they say.
Are there areas of your skincare routine that you’re potentially overspending in?
One of the best skincare tips is to double cleanse your skin every evening before bed. Cleansing three times a day means that you’re using quite a bit of product - do you really need to be splurging on expensive cleanser to get the job done?
The short answer is no, you do not. A good cleanser is an essential skincare component but it doesn’t need to come with a hefty price tag.
Skincare tips to remember
Everyone has a different budget for their skincare routine. So, it’s absolutely up to you whether you choose to spend or splurge! The main thing to remember, when choosing your skincare arsenal is, that what works for your friend might not work for you. Skincare is not a one-size-fits-all so the best skincare to invest in are products that going to specifically treat your skin concerns.
Of course, if you want to splurge, you do you. Everyone deserves to treat themselves once in a while!
