You work hard for your money so you want to make sure you’re spending it the right way too – on products that are worth their price, products that make a difference in how you look and feel, and, if you’re feeling altruistic, products that give back to others too.
This weekend, we’ve rounded up five ways to make that dollar go further – from products that do double duty for your skin and body, to products that support a worthy cause this month. Here’s what you need to know.
1. 10 Products That Give Back to Breast Cancer Awareness
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month which is an annual campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer risks, the value of screening and early detection and treatment options available to women and men who are diagnosed with one of the many forms of the disease.
Throughout the month, designers will unveil special-edition products to raise money for foundations by donating a portion of their proceeds to breast cancer charities. We found some great products that were specially made for this cause that will not only make you feel good about your purchase, but help someone in need as well.
2. How To Get a Custom Pair of Ray-Bans Online
The day is finally here – you can now customize Ray-Ban sunglasses online. Framesdirect.com has just launched a new Ray-Ban customization service that lets you input your own prescription, pick the perfect measurements and create any frame/lens color combination.
This amount of customization is fairly new to the sunglass market, and it’s no surprise that Ray-Ban is one of the first to do it. For 80 years they’ve been shaping the sunglass business and leaving a legacy of classic shapes that just get cooler with age. They’ve had starring roles in classic movies like Easy Rider, Top Gun, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and many more. So if you’re going to spend some money on a custom pair of sunglasses, Ray-Ban is a great choice. Here’s how to get a custom pair for yourself.

5. Nighttime vs. Daytime Skin Care: Which Products to Use When and Why
There are thousands of different skin care products on the market today. From snail mucous to cleansers, it can be tough to know exactly what your skin needs and when. Thankfully, science has proven exactly which products should be used during your morning skin care routine and which are better applied at night. In fact, skin cell turnover is greater while you are asleep. During these hours, your skin runs its detox and renewal processes. That makes the PM a better time to use active skin care products, like restorative creams and acids.
On the other hand, your skin is exposed to the elements during the day. This means you should be applying sunscreen-containing products in the morning. In addition, your morning skin care routine shouldn’t include any products that can be weakened due to UV exposure or cause negative reactions to the sun. Read on to learn exactly which skin care products to use during the day and at night.
