Inexpensive Youth Restoring Products for Your Face

Products That Work Without Breaking the Bank

Everyone wants to look great and maintain a youthful appearance but not everyone can budget hundreds of dollars per month to do so.

Fortunately, there are some affordable products out there that do exactly what they claim without making you choose between the mortgage and your wrinkle cream.

By the end of this article, you’re going to have some really good tips on how to stay young looking and beautiful even if your budget doesn’t allow for a $500 beauty serum. We all deserve to look our best, and now we can!

Makeup Remover

The first item that you need to have in your cabinet is a good makeup remover that will take off all traces of your makeup without stripping the natural oils from your face. This is one reason why washing your face in the shower is a bad thing. Using a soap meant for your hair or body is most likely too harsh to use on your face without causing irritation or dryness.

Instead, use a good makeup remover. Botanics by Boots has an excellent one called Boots Botanics Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover. Take off your makeup, then while you’re in the shower the hot water will loosen all of the dirt and grime that’s built up and it’ll be easier to remove when you get out of the shower and wash your face.

This is basically the same concept behind steaming your face because it’s a myth that you can open and close your pores with heat or by any other mechanism. There are no mobility muscles or any other manner by which the holes can get shrink or grow, so you simply can’t open, close, or shrink your pores.

What you CAN do though is take good care of your face by keeping it clean so that dirt doesn’t build up in them and stretch them out. You may be genetically predisposed to developing large pores but you can at least do what’s within your power to avoid getting them in the first place.


Once you get out of the shower, wash your face before the dirt and dead skin cells have a chance to harden and settle back in your pores. You’re going to need a good face scrubber and wash. If you need a scrubber, click here to find some good deals. There’s really no reason to spend a ton of money; after all, as long as it massages the dirt out of your pores, the job’s getting done whether you paid $10 or $100 for your scrubber.

If you’d like to try good facewash, check out these deals on cleansers. Olay’s Pore Minimizing Cleanser is a good choice financially and functionally. Another option, though it’s a bit more expensive, is Giovanni’s Facial Cleanser. It has volcanic ash in it which is an excellent exfoliant. It’s a little pricey comparated to other options but the best investment that you can make is a good cleanser, and a little bit goes a long way.

It doesn’t really matter what brand you use as long as it doesn’t break you out and doesn’t strip all of the natural oils out of your face.

Moisturizer/Wrinkle Cream

There are a couple of good wrinkle creams that don’t cost a fortune, and by only spot treating, you can really stretch your buck. Many of these products, especially the ones with ingredients such as retinol, are drying and you really should only spot treat with them. In other words, use them on your trouble areas.

One of the better ones on the market is Roc’s Deep Wrinkle Night Cream. Surprisingly, after using this product for awhile, it makes a noticeable difference in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines because it smoothes out your face so that your skin looks younger and refreshed. Plus, if you only spot treat with it, it can last you up to 6 months.

The Olay Regenerist products work fairly well, too. The Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream comes in a fragrance-free formula now, so that makes it even better. The less filler, the better. It’s a little pricey at around $20 or so but just like with the Roc, use it sparingly and it’ll last for a while.

If you’re looking for an intensive intervention for your wrinkles and fine lines, try Olay’s Regenerist 14 Day Skin Intervention. It’s a great product that will give you results in as little as the 2 weeks that it claims. It’s relatively inexpensive at around $20 or less and works as well as the high-dollar serums.

The Extras

It’s a good idea to exfoliate your face about once per week. This sloughs off the dead skin cells and deep debris that clogs your pores and makes your skin look dull. A good exfoliator is Giovanni’s Facial Cleansing Towelettes. They have volcanic ash in them, which is an awesome natural exfoliator.

If you like doing masks, Giovanni’s D:tox Purifying Facial Mask is great for soaking out the garbage that dulls your face. It leaves your skin looking bright and clean but doesn’t suck out all of the moisture. It’s the volcanic ash in it that makes all the difference.

Finally, a good microderm abrasion scrub once a week can really put a polish on your skin. I couldn’t find the one that she mentions in the video but Neutrogena has a great, inexpensive system that even comes with a scrubber. Click here if you want to try Neutrogena’s Microderm Abrasion Kit. You’ll notice a much healthier glow as soon as you rinse your face.

Final Word

No matter what your age, you have to take care of your skin if you want it to look its best. If you don’t keep it clean, your pores get clogged and you get pimples and enlarged pores. If you don’t exfoiate, your skin can’t breath through all of the dead skin cells and new cells can’t breath. Your face will be dull and lackluster. This all leads to old, tired looking skin, which is exactly the opposite of what you want.

Now that you have some suggestions for products that work without driving you into the poorhouse, there’s no reason to have bad skin – buy them now and start seeing brighter, younger looking skin as soon as you start using them!

    Great article and video! I really like the giovanni wipes for those nights when you just want to fall into bed, or when you want to wash your face and change makeup between work and play.

    I also like the Olay Total Effects cleansing products. Every one of them that I’ve tried works well and doesn’t break me out.

    I just can’t see spending a million dollars on something that’s only going to be on your face for 30 seconds. I’d rather spend my money on moisturizers and anti-aging products.
