Black Friday, which comes after Thanksgiving Day, officially kicks off the holiday shopping season. Many retailers offer unprecedented discounts which lure shoppers out of their homes and into stores in droves. People line up in front of their favorite stores, sometimes as early as the previous night, to be the first to snag big-ticket items at ridiculous prices.


Black Friday can be tantalizing to people who want to land amazing deals and knock out their holiday shopping in a mere day. If the snarled traffic and crush of shoppers aren’t for you, though, there is an alternative. Cyber Monday enables people to get the same kind of discounts online, without the inconvenience of the crowd. Online shopping deals start on Black Friday and last through the weekend. They often peak on Cyber Monday. You can find exciting, once-a-year deals without ever having to leave your house.

Huge Discounts

Many items sold on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, both in brick-and-mortar and online stores, are heavily discounted, allowing retailers to clear out old inventories and make way for incoming holiday and next-year products. Deals span a wide range of products, from children’s toys to electronics, kitchen utensils to household appliances, and more.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the perfect times to buy skin care products needed to keep your skin glowing and healthy. Some of the skin care products that will be heavily discounted on these two shopping days are the following:

  • Facial cleanser – Most experts recommend washing your face twice a day. Choose a mild soap, not a harsh one. Harsh cleaners may leave your skin feeling squeaky clean, but it will also be dry and stripped of natural oils. Use a cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide for oily skin and a creamy cleanser for dry skin.
  • Moisturizer – The skin on the exposed parts of the body are prone to dryness. Apply moisturizer with broad-spectrum protection and an SPF 30, with zinc oxide or titanium oxide. Keeping the skin moisturized will maintain its youthful look and help seal out damaging agents. Watch for discounts on moisturizers during the big shopping weekend.
  • Exfoliator – Removing your dead skin cells periodically is a great way to maintain youthful skin. You can use a chemical exfoliator. You can also buy skin products that have physical exfoliating agents such as lotions with small particles that slough off dead skin.

Watch for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Seize the weekend to stock up on personal products or to purchase well-priced facial care gifts for friends and family.
