4 skin care cheats for lazy girls
Strapped for time or just CANNOT muster the energy for an entire seven-step skin care routine? We’ve all been there. Yep, even beauty editors forgo toner and serum for extra couch time watching The Bachelor or falling into bed after a long day.
To take care of your skin with very little effort, follow these sneaky tips…
#1. CLEANSE, TONE AND REMOVE MAKE-UP AT ONCE
Save time and your hard-earned cash by stocking up on a cleanser, toner and make-up remover in one. It’ll give you squeaky-clean skin in seconds flat without the hassle of switching from one product to the next.
#2. MOISTURISE, FIGHT AGEING AND PREVENT SUN DAMAGE IN ONE
Ditch the anti-ageing serum, moisturiser and sunscreen and kill three birds with one stone with a moisturiser that ups your hydration levels, targets pesky lines and wrinkles and protects your complexion from the sun’s harmful rays.
#3. THE ‘DOES-IT-ALL’ NIGHT CREAM
No matter how old you are, a night cream is essential for those who like to wake up with dewy, healthy-looking skin (so, everyone). For the best results, choose one that’ll deliver a whole bunch of benefits to your skin, including anti-ageing, deep hydration, antioxidants and nutrients. That way, you can skip the serum and facial oil.
#4. ALL HAIL THE MAKE-UP WIPE
If there’s one thing you MUST do to take care of your skin, it’s to remove your make-up every single night. Firstly, even if you moisturised your skin before applying make-up, all that foundation/powder/bronzer as well as air conditioning, dry air and wind will have sucked a fair bit of moisture out of your skin.. Secondly, leaving your make-up on when you sleep deprives your skin of breathing, so it’s more likely to look tired and dull when you wake up. And finally, make-up has a bad habit of clogging your pores with grime and oil, which can lead to – you guessed it – breakouts.
So, if you want pimple-free, brighter skin in the morning, embrace the product sent from the beauty gods: make-up wipes. The best part is, you can even lie in bed while using them. Major win. Bonus points for slapping on a moisturiser afterwards!
