We understand that in times of uncertainty most people are reluctant to spend what they once did on things like skincare. Typically, this is the time when you’d finish off whatever is left of your once prized skincare collection and head to your local supermarket looking for cheaper alternatives. We are asking you - please DON’T!You may be saving in the short term however those typical cheap products contain very few beneficial ingredients and can undo all that time, money and effort you have already spent on your skin.Are you going to find a $10 moisturiser at The Clinic? No. Our products cost more than they do at the supermarket but the difference is you’re paying for high quality, medical-grade skincare. That little bit extra that you spend pays for advanced delivery systems, scientific formulations and quality ingredients in therapeutic doses that are clinically proven to benefit the skin.This means that our products are actually going to work, and they are going to work well.So, before you ditch your skin care that works and replace it with cheap and nasty products that wreak havoc on your skin, we have come up with our Skincare on a Budget edit - all available online at The Clinic for $90 or less. These products are guaranteed to help maintain that healthy and glowing skin that you have worked so hard to achieve. It’s all about keeping things simple with high quality, multi-tasking products, no nasties included.Step 1 - CleanseWe recommend choosing a multitasking cleanser, one that not only cleanses but also exfoliates, which is really important when you want to get the most out of your skincare. Why? Exfoliation helps stimulate skin turnover and keeps your skin healthy - which your skin is going to need when you can’t make it to those in-clinic treatments. Exfoliation also enhances the absorption of everything else - so your other products will work more effectively.SkinBetter Science Daily Enzyme Cleanser $47Best for: Dry to normal Skin.
