Keep yourself looking your best without breaking the bank with these money-saving tips — plus find out how to book a bargain £9.50 break with The Sun

SCRUBBING up can get pretty expensive. Dermatologist Dendy Engelman this week revealed her beauty regime costs £12,272 every year. You will not be surprised to hear that spending that much seems a bit ridiculous to me.

So round off your January detox with a bargain pamper session instead . . .

Back to basics: Beauty buzzwords ramp up the price of products and allow brands to charge the earth for tiny pots of cream. Forget it! Hyaluronic acid is what everyone is talking about, as it acts like a moisture magnet, hydrating skin and making it appear more plump. But while the high street Super Facialist hyaluronic serum is £14.99, The Inkey List sells it online for £4.99.

SAVING: £10

Weigh it up: Check the weight of what you buy so you can work out the best deal. An Epsom salt bath is just the thing for aching limbs. Boots’ Westlab Pure Mineral Bathing Epsom Salt seems reasonable at £4.99 for 1kg, but Poundshop.com has a 450g bag for £1. Buy two and get almost the same amount for less than half the price.

SAVING: £3.99

Face off: Are you looking at the ingredients of what you buy? Compare packets and you might be surprised at how similar they are. No pamper is complete without a face mask. I use Aldi’s Lacura Exfoliating Mud Mask for just £5.99, instead of the very similar Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment, £42.

SAVING: £36.01

Lock it down: Ask your hairdresser about the pro products they use, then seek them out online. So many salon treatments can now be done at home, saving you a fortune. Try Knight and Wilson PurePlex, £12.99, at Superdrug, which works in a similar way to celeb and hairdresser favourite Olaplex No3, £24 at Cult Beauty.

SAVING: £11.01
