Compared to just 10 years ago, today we live busier lives than ever before, and if you look back 50 years ago, our lifestyles today are incomparable. Because of this, we are forced to prioritize aspects of our lives, from work, cooking and childcare, to exercise, socializing and skincare. The areas that often fall by the wayside are those we have more choice about, such as exercise and skincare. When you have little spare time, if any at all, it can make life feel more manageable to let a few things slide.
Skincare is essential to skin health, and without making a little effort to take care of your skin, you could experience premature aging, as well as blemishes, dry patches and oily skin too. It is possible to fit skincare into a busy routine, you just have to be smart about the time you do have to take care of your skin…
When you’re rushing around all day, it can be difficult to imagine how you will fit in daily tasks when it comes to your skin, but it’s all about the products you use and how much of an impact they have. In choosing to use products that deliver fantastic results, you only need to find a few minutes each day to care for your skin well.
If you’re only going to find the time to carry out a few steps each day on your skin, make it these:
- Double cleanse Use a water based cleanser day and night to remove dirt and bacteria from the skin. Use a cotton pad and sweep across the skin, do this twice to make sure everything is removed
- Super Serum A serum works wonders for the skin, and is a must-use product for those who have little time. Choose a vitamin rich serum and apply after cleansing, morning and night if you can, or just at night if you’re tight on time
- Rich moisturizer Finally, apply a rich moisturizer that again is rich in vitamins to brighten and smooth the skin. Apply this morning and night if you can.
Spending an extra ten minutes once or twice each week really makes a difference, so grab some pamper time where you can. Twice weekly apply a collagen cream to help keep skin looking young and fresh. Creams rich in collagen plump up the skin, helping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. If you have a little extra time, try using a deep cleansing face mask prior to applying your collagen cream.
