A 4 step skincare routine ,for Busy Women Who Want to Look Amazing without the Hassle.
OMG! I don't know about you, but it gets hard trying to balance life, work, kids, and just adulting. It's surprising that we haven't lost our minds by now. I don't know, is it just me? Please don't tell me I'm speaking about myself, lol.
For many of us we don't have the time to spend an extra 45 minuets doing an 8-12 step skincare routine. I don't know about you, but for me I can spend 45 minuets reading a book and folding laundry. Sure I love my skin and I want to protect it in anyway that I can, but If I have to buy a thousand products and spend hours trying to achieve beautiful skin... It's an automatically NO, for me.
When it comes to skincare, consistency is key. But what about those days when you just can't seem to find the time? Fear not, because a simple 4-step skincare routine can be all you need to keep your skin stay happy and healthy. Here's a lazy girl's guide to skincare:
Step 1: Cleanse
Start your routine by cleansing your face with a gentle non-foaming cleanser. It helps remove dirt, oil, and impurities that have accumulated on your skin throughout the day. Massage the cleanser onto your face for 30 seconds, then rinse with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry with a soft towel. Now if you wear makeup, you may have to repeat this step more than once. I always have to wash my face 3x's on makeup days. Why? I wear a ton of makeup!
Step 2: Tone
Toning helps balance your skin's pH level and prepare it for the next steps of your skincare routine. Use a hydrating toner that contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin to help lock in moisture. Or if you have oily skin use a toner that has charcoal and mint to destroy acne and oil. Apply the toner using a cotton pad and gently swipe it across your face and neck. Let it completely dry before you move on to the next step.
Step 3: Serum
Next, apply a serum to your face. Serums are lightweight, fast-absorbing liquids that contain a high concentration of active ingredients. They can help with a variety of skin concerns, such as dryness, dullness, and fine lines. Choose a serum that works best for your skin type and concerns.
Step 4: Moisturize
Moisturizing is essential to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. Look for a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer that absorbs quickly into your skin. Apply a dime-sized amount onto your face and neck, gently massaging it in using upward strokes. This helps stimulate blood circulation and can give your skin a healthy glow. Moisturizing your skin is best reserved for the night time.
Step 4: Protect
Finish off your routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Look for a formula with at least SPF 30 and apply it generously onto your face and neck. Sun damage can cause premature aging and increase the risk of skin cancer, so it's crucial to include sunscreen in your daily routine. Sunscreen should be used the moment you wake up.
Other Lazy Girl Skincare Tips:
Use a facial mist: Facial mists are a quick and easy way to hydrate your skin and give it a refreshing boost. Keep a bottle on your desk or in your bag for whenever you need a quick pick-me-up.
Use a tinted moisturizer with SPF: A tinted moisturizer with SPF not only provides some coverage, but it also protects your skin from the sun's harmful rays. This is a great lazy option because you don't have to apply multiple products.
Use a multipurpose balm: A multipurpose balm can be used as a lip balm, cuticle cream, and even to tame flyaway hairs. It's a great lazy option because you can use it for multiple purposes and don't have to switch between products.
Remember, even when you're feeling lazy, taking care of your skin is important. Sometimes I miss days on my skincare routine, but what's most important is that you have a skincare routine and you stick to it. Incorporating these lazy skincare tips can help you maintain healthy and happy skin without too much effort.
