Beauty infographic shows you how much product you really need

While we might be skilled at understanding which serum is best for our faces or which shampoo will give us that incredible volume we crave, there aren't always such clear guidelines how much of each product we should be using for every step in our daily beauty regimen. 

Thankfully, the clever people over at Makeup.com have created an incredible infographic that tells you just how much product you should be using each time. Not only will following this revolutionise (yeah, we said it) your skincare regimen but it will also do wonders for your wallet. 

For example, when you use a cleanser you should be using a squirt the size of a hazelnut. As for moisturiser, you only need two raisins' worth and for eye cream you only need one pine nut per eye.

The reasoning behind using such small amounts is that most of the time your product goes much further than you think. So, in the case of cleanser, particularly if it's foaming, you really don't need to use much. 

Similarly, it's recommended that retinol and serums are only pea-sized when you put them on your skin, as they are both high-concentrated products so you can reduce the amount you're using. 

As for haircare, the rule is very much the same. Shampoo shouldn't be used all the way through from root to tip, so if you use just a blackberry size (for short hair) or a strawberry size (for long hair) and work it into the roots and half-way down, that's all you need.

As for conditioner, you don't want masses, and should only use at the tips, so a cherry (for short hair) or two raspberries (for long hair). 

Take a look at more of the invaluable advice in the infographic below.
