The lazy girl's guide to great skin
Are you a bit of a lazy lass when it comes to your skincare routine? Do you wish you could click your fingers and have a thoroughly cleansed face? Do you sometimes even skip your make-up removal entirely? Eek! You’re about as naughty as they come.
Here’s a newsflash. Sometimes we just can’t be bothered to indulge in a five-step, thorough skin care routine. After a long, hard day at work we’re pretty much pooped – but it doesn’t mean our skin has to suffer. Thanks to an array of skin-loving multi-taskers, you can look gorgeous in a flash. Here, you can discover the tips and tricks to ensure you have great skin without any of the hard graft.
LAZY GIRL’S SKIN TRICK #1: Make your cleanser work harder
If you’re too tired to keep your eyes open at night, let alone stand at your mirror and meticulously remove the day’s make-up with your cotton wool and cream cleanser – just jump in the shower! The steam from the hot water will open your pores and allow your face wash to perform an even deeper cleanse, in a shorter amount of time. We recommend using philosophy purity made simple 3-in-1 cleanser for face and eyes as it effectively removes your eye make-up and tones your skin too.
LAZY GIRL’S SKIN TRICK #2: Perk-up your skin, pronto
If your skin is looking a little dull and dreary, there’s a good chance it’s overdue for a pampering pick-me-up. But who has the time for complicated facemasks and brightening treatments? Not a lot of us, that’s for sure. For this reason, I’m super glad to have Natio Skin Brightening Face Balm around. This silky face balm is effectively a moisturiser that instantly boosts skin radiance while softening your skin, and also acts as pick-me-up moisturising face mask. The best bit? It also helps to even out your skin tone, calm irritated skin (thanks to green tea antioxidants) and adds lustre to your complexion, all in one hit.
LAZY GIRL’S SKIN TRICK #3: Wipe away your skin sins
If you’re lazy when it comes to skincare then you need a quick and easy solution to get the job done (the job being, waking up with fresh, clean skin and without make-up remnants from the day before). For this, you need a hard-working, multi-use product you can keep beside your bed and reach for on nights when you’re feeling far too lazy to tend to your skin. We recommend using NIVEA Visage 3-in-1 Daily Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes, as these double-sided wipes work to eliminate skin impurities, cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin, leaving it feeling clean and looking radiant.
