On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, Dr. Fayne Frey, author of The Skincare Hoax: How You’re Being Tricked into Buying Lotions, Potions & Wrinkle Cream, shares the five products you really need.
The Skincare Hoax
In The Skincare Hoax: How You’re Being Tricked into Buying Lotions, Potions & Wrinkle Cream by Dr. Fayne Frey, she lists five skincare products that, according to her, are all that a person needs.
A Groupon-commissioned survey found that women spend an average of $3,756 annually on beauty products. Dr. Frey asserts that rather than superior ingredients, the excessive packaging and clever marketing of boutique products are to blame for the high prices.
The dermatologist, who is board-certified and a consumer advocate (think “Ralph Nader for beauty”), wants people to focus on the facts and not the hype. Because of this, her brand, FryFace.com, is dedicated to providing consumer reviews on skincare products without being compensated by the industry.
Dr. Frey says that you can buy the list she recommends at the supermarket or drugstore to save money and still be your best self, even though she does not endorse any particular brand.
Dr. Frey's Top Five Affordable Beauty Products For 2023:
100% Pure Petroleum Jelly
It's safe to use, affordable, and easy to find, according to Dr. Frey, making it the most versatile skincare product available.
Effective moisturizers are what Dr. Frey recommends; ones that have been objectively shown to increase the skins water content. Additionally, they are readily available in jars, tubes, or pumps on the shelves of your neighborhood pharmacy and can be used on the body or face!
Because sunscreen should be applied every day; there's no need to buy expensive boutique brands. Sprays, tubes, and sticks of sunscreen are available. It's your choice!
Soaps with harsh detergents can dry out the skin, irritate the skin, and cause inflammation. If you want to keep the make up on, milder soap-free cleansers can be used on the face and body to remove it.
SPF Lip Balm
Lips require sun protection and moisture. Daily application of a SPF lip balm is recommended.
