Ways to Fit Regular Facials into Your Budget
Look good – that’s what we all strive for, and taking care of our skin is essential as well, but our self-care and treatments can sometimes get put on the back burner when we have other priorities. Don’t worry, though. We’ve put together some sneaky ways that you can keep the cost of your beauty treatments down and give yourself a bit of me-time for less. So, here are ten ways to fit regular facials into your budget. You’ll love this!
Shop Around for Deals!
There may be a new clinic or spa set up in your area – watch for openings and see if there are special deals when they startup. Certain times of year are quiet for beauty treatments, too, so look for traditionally slow times and see if there are any offers on facials and skincare designed to tempt people in to fill the spa!
Another is to look for city and town spas and beauty clinics as they may have to compete for business, which means they are more likely to have lower prices than a clinic in a small town where there’s no competition.
Ask About Membership! A Package for Your Budget
Businesses want to keep you loyal to them, and skincare clinics and spas are no exception. Many are cottoning on to the idea of loyalty cards – memberships where you can get discounts on treatments and the type of card where you notch up five facials and get another one free. Always worth investigating. Check out our membership package!
Try Targeted Services
Most places will offer shorter taster sessions and quick lunchtime treatments; you don’t always have to opt for the hour-log full facial. If money is tight, look for a faster, straightforward remedy to tide you over until you book the luxury facial.
Check Out Online Apps
Groupon and other online deal apps are fantastic – sign up for accounts, and you’ll find that beauty therapists like to offer significant discounts to fill their appointment books, especially when it’s a bit quiet. Get daily deals at massive discounts.
Do Some Bartering
Do you know anyone who works in a clinic or a spa? Perhaps you can barter with them so that they give you your facial treatments if you cut their hair or sew some curtains? If you don’t have any marketable skills, offer to do some gardening or babysit their kids! You have your facial without cutting off on your household budget.
Contact the Local Beauty School
A beauty student needs practice and is constantly seeking out people to evaluate their skills. You might have to be supervised by a lecturer, and it might not be as seamless or professional as a spa massage, but the difference in cost will make that more than worthwhile.
Get Gift Certificates. It Will Surely Fit Your Budget
If your friends never know what to get you for birthday presents and you end up with things you never use and end up donating, ask for what you want – online gift cards for the spa. It helps them understand what they should buy for you, and it helps you get your facials. Easy win.
Suggest an Office Taster Session
Do you know a mobile aesthetician who would love to expand their clientele? One easy suggestion is to get them into workplaces to offer taster treatments – perhaps as part of a fundraiser? They can offer discounted facials and treatments and potentially walk away with a few more clients.
Renegotiate Your Household Bills
We all have things we pay out for but could get a better deal on. Credit cards, cable, cell phones, check how much you pay, and negotiate a deal. Use whatever you save to get that facial!
Nix the Morning Coffee
This one crops up in so many ‘how to save money articles because it works. A coffee every day for a month (especially a fancy one at Starbucks!) will cost you more than that facial, and too much caffeine wrecks your skin anyway. You save your skin, and you keep an excellent budget for your facial session. Isn’t that great!
