As the old adage goes: Relationships may come and go, but skincare is forever. At the day's end, the routine of cleansing, applying serums, and moisturizing is, in itself, an act of self-care if you think about it. It's an opportunity to take off the last 24 hours, so to speak, and invest in resetting and prepping to put your best face forward when morning rolls back around.
When you begin to see the simple act of a skincare routine as an extension of giving back to yourself, it only makes sense to indulge in the process a little. And thanks to Amazon, you can do just that for less — and right on time for treating yourself this Valentine's Day.
Since Amazon just marked down best-sellers across categories of skincare products and tools, there's never been a better time to stock up on essentials or even just try something new. From the retailer's most popular facial steamer to a $12 retinol serum with more than 4,000 perfect reviews, the surprise markdowns include a little of everything to take your routine up a notch.
TruSkin's Vitamin C Hyaluronic Acid — Amazon's overall best-selling facial serum — is another shopper-approved standout with a price tag that's currently slashed. "I am a 43 year old wife, mom of teen girls, and middle school math teacher," one reviewer shared. "That equals stress on my skin. I also live in Texas (read: sun damage). I do take care of my skin, but lately it has been less than perfect. Two weeks of using this serum, and my 17-year-old tells me I look like I am in my 20's rather than 30's. Fine lines are going away. Acne scars fading. Pigmentation evening out. Even my neck and jawline are smoother."Whether you're rolling solo this V-Day or not, be your own Valentine and treat yourself to a skincare routine upgrade. Below, check out the best anti-aging creams, serums, and skincare tools currently on sale on Amazon.
