Quick tips to make your skincare routine multifunctional and affordable


The pandemic has taught us to embrace minimalism like never before. Not just in just the little elements of our day-to-day lifestyle, but also in our beauty routines, which were typically thriving on elaborate steps and multiple products. The bonus? Beauty routines have become more reasonable comprehensively.

Scroll down to see some of TGM’s tips to make your skincare routine multifunctional and cost-effective.

1. Look for hybrid products

Hybrid products refer to double-duty formulations that tackle multiple needs instead of doing just one job. Think moisturising BB creams that offer coverage and contain ingredients like ceramides, peptides and vitamin E, tinted lip hydrators that feature a blend of oils and butters as well as a rich colour pay-off.

TGM Beauty’s Serumizer is one such product that treats like a serum and hydrates like a moisturiser. Formulated with tri-rice actives, licorice & marshmallow root extracts, berry oils, bio fermented Korean red oil and saccharide isomerate this serumizer boosts complexion, treats dark spots, pigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture while providing hydration for upto 72 hours.


2. Adopt a skin-first approach

If you want to make the best out of your beauty routine, thinking skin-first is important; the approach helps you cut down on harsh makeup and skincare products. By doing so, you’ll cut down on the clutter and make space for more mindful products.

3. Ban all things one-dimensional

The moment you pick a product that is single-use—think a sheet mask that's a use and throw product or a Q tip or even mini trial packs that consume up a lot of plastic packaging—you add to the barrage of plastic waste generated by the beauty industry, which is, more often than not, non-recyclable and non-biodegradable. Instead, a homemade mask, reusable makeup removal towels and large refill packs make for more eco- , user- and pocket-friendly solutions.

4. Be mindful

There's no better way to make the best of your beauty routine than downsizing it, consciously. To not reduce consumption but absolutely refuse things that you do not need is just the first step; you need to thoughtfully curate a beauty routine which comprises only those products that you will genuinely use and are meant for your skin type. That way you can be rest assured that each and every product will deliver and provide total value for money.
