NewBeauty Brain Trust member Troy, MI plastic surgeon Anthony Youn, MD has a very active Instagram account filled with myth-busting content, aesthetic surgery Reels, beauty hacks and a whole lot of humor.
And, as he just shared with his 1 million followers, he’s also has some solid advice to offer when it comes to being frugal—and smart—with skin care.
In “Skin Care Hacks That Can Save Your Life…or at Least Your Wallet,” Dr. Youn says he recommends using a “spatty” (tiny spatula) to make your products last longer.
The hack is pretty simple: You can find the Shark Tank-featured Spatty Daddy Makeup Spatula Set on Amazon in packs of two for $10 (the brand even advertises the silicone gadget as “fitting into virtually every beauty product on the market” and “getting out every last drop.”) Plus, as the company notes, the reusable product doesn’t just work on skin care, as it can get into shampoo, lotions, makeup and even nail polishes.
