Not everyone has time for a lengthy morning or evening routine when it comes to caring for their complexion, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from having great skin. We have some tips for streamlining how to take care of your skin.
Use multi-tasking products
One of the easiest ways to cut down on the time it takes to care for your skin is to use products that multi-task. Keep a cleanser in your shower that also hydrates and exfoliates so you’re automatically getting three steps rolled into one. Plus, by having everything you need right there in the shower, you save even more time. Tinted moisturizers and BB or CC creams are also good options, since they hydrate while evening out skin tone.
Stock up on wipes
Cleanse your skin without even turning on the tap by having cleansing wipes on hand for the speediest way to wash your face. You can find many brands at various price points, so simply choose the one that fits your skin type and budget. Keeping a box of wipes by your bed makes it easy to keep your skin clean no matter how late you get in.
Avoid product overload
There’s no need for a medicine cabinet full of creams. Streamline what you put on your face by choosing one moisturizer that works for your skin type and avoiding the urge to try too many other products. It can be tempting to overspend on products and end up with a makeup bag full of them, but make things easier (and faster) by sticking with what you know works.
Keep skin naturally healthy looking
The healthier your skin is, the less time you’ll need to spend on your skin care and makeup routine. This means using sunscreen daily (even when it’s cloudy), washing your face at night (or using your cleansing wipes), exfoliating and reducing the appearance of scars — something you can easily do with a product like Mederma Advanced Scar Gel, which helps to reduce the appearance of old and new scars with once-daily application (when used as directed).
Use a weekly targeted mask
You might think that adding a mask to your skin care routine is too much work, but using a mask targeted to your skin care concerns (dryness, breakouts, redness, etc.) once a week can go a long way toward ensuring your skin looks great. And the better your skin looks naturally, the less time you need to spend taking care of it.
