Be a beauty budget mixologist

Who hasn't been tempted to splurge on expensive beauty products? But do you know there are certain products you can save on, to make it easier to purchase the ones that are really worth spending on?

Says beauty expert Shahnaz Husain, "Investing in expensive beauty products is not the way to get a gorgeous and flawless complexion or hair. Rather, choosing products intelligently will yield better results. Expensive products will not always give you the best results; it's the quality that matters."

Skin serum
: Popularly known as a 'magic potion for the skin', a serum has multiple benefits. "Invest in a good skin serum that will protect your skin from the damage that occurs due to constant exposure to sun and pollution," says Husain. It helps restore moisture and elasticity to your skin, and helps regulate oil production, thus making your skin look healthy and fresh.

Nourishing night cream: A nourishing night cream works wonders for your skin. It revitalises your skin from within, thus making it look radiant and glowing. That is the reason why you should choose a good night cream which contains vitamin E and other hydrating agents that will make your skin look healthy.

Make-up remover: Says cosmetic physician Dr Jamuna Pai, "Make-up residue can clog your skin pores and lead to several skin related problems. Thus removing make-up completely is as important as wearing it correctly. Using a moisturising cream to remove make-up may not clean it off sufficiently, thus it is worth splurging on a make-up remover that sweeps away dirt and oil with minimal strokes, for a clean and fresh skin."

Sunscreen: "Sunscreen is not a cosmetic product, but an essential requirement for healthy skin. Sunburn is caused by UVB rays of the sun. Therefore, it is worth spending more to ensure that your sunscreen not only stays strong against the harmful rays of the sun, but also protects it from it for extended time duration," says consultant dermatologist and cosmetologist Dr Geetanjali Shetty.

Face wash
: A face wash is a product that you need to use on a daily basis, especially during summers. So, it doesn't make sense to splurge on a product that you will require every now and then. Choose a face wash that comprises neem, tulsi and sandalwood that will nourish your skin and also provide hydration.

Toners: Many women often go in for the most expensive toners available in the market. But do you know, you can also make one easily at home with the same ingredients? Says Husain, "A toner with rose petals is great during this season. Place a few rose petals in a small pan. Take two cups of boiling water and pour it over the petals and allow them to cool to about room temperature. Then take a strainer and pour this into a glass bottle. You can also add a few lemon drops. Refrigerate and use it daily after you have taken off your make-up."

Cleansers: You must not invest too much in cleansers, because just like face wash, it's a product for daily use and one wouldn't want to spend too much money on it. However, if you wish to buy a cleanser, get one that is best suited for your skin type.

Double-duty moisturiser: A double-effect moisturiser is the best way to save money. These moisturisers work as a foundation as well as contains SPF. So, you don't have to invest separately on a foundation or a sun-protecting lotion. These tinted moisturisers give a perfect glow while protecting you from the harmful rays of the sun.
