The proven 3-minute skin care routine for a mum on the go
A 10-step Korean skin care routine might be trending in the beauty world, but when you’re a mum on the go, it's not realistic. The trick to glowing skin when you have no time is making sure your skin care routine works smart, not hard. So if you are a mum going back to work, all you have to do is make a few easy adjustments to your daily skin care routine for glowing skin.
Here are my top beauty tips for a mum on the go.
1. Switch up your cleanser
Whether you're a mum or not, cleansing is a non-negotiable skin care step. It not only removes makeup but a build-up of daily environmental dirt that can wreak havoc on your skin. But if you’re absolutely skint for time, or too tired to cleanse, just use wipes. But make sure you use ones that are suited for your skin type. Otherwise, use micellar water. It’s another quick and effective way to cleanse your face.
2. Use targeted skin care products
While you normally need to wait between applying skin care products for them to absorb into your skin, using fewer products means less waiting time. So think about replacing some of your daily skin care products with more targeted ones like a chemical exfoliating treatment. The beauty of this product is it takes little effort to use - you only have to apply it two to three times a week to see a complexion transformation.
3. Opt for multi-tasking skin care products
If you’re a mum going back to work, it’s all about using overachieving products that can help to streamline your skin care routine. Look for a moisturiser that contains SPF, a cleanser and toner in one and facial wipes that exfoliate.
