Less Time-Consuming Skin Care Tips

Girls often find themselves in situations with hardly any time at all, so they tend to slack on their skin care routine. A girl shall never let her skin suffer despite the busy work schedule, daily fitness routine, and night-out with friends.

Here are three easy tips that any girl can fit into their hectic schedules:

  1. Warm Showers

Like how hot and steamy showers feel? Most people prefer their showers to be steaming hot, but it often leads to dry skin. To spend little time on moisturizing your skin, warm showers are the way to go!

  1. Your Favorite Moisturizer on your Night Stand

Too tired to go to the bathroom before bed? By keeping your moisturizer or facial wipes right next to you on your nightstand, going to the bathroom is no longer necessary. Make sure to get facial wipes that will remove all that make up after a long day, so you don’t wake up looking like a raccoon!

  1. Always have a Back Up in your Bag

Busy girls often find themselves everywhere and always find themselves not ready for a night somewhere else. What is the solution? Have your favorite products ready in your bag. When buying your necessities for your skin care routine, always buy your favorites in two. One for your house and one for your everyday bag that you bring everywhere with you. If you don’t use the one in your bag, at least you would have back when one runs out!

7 Big N-O’s on Skin Care!

  1. Not enough sunscreen application

Sunscreen is usually applied when people are staying under the sun for a long duration. People don’t realize is that they’re exposed to the sun on a daily basis, which means sunscreen application should be done everyday and not just occasionally.

  1. Pimple picking

It’s one advice that is hard to follow, but a must to do! Picking at your pimples may be tempting, but the after effects are not at all pleasant. It causes hyperpigmentation that is not easy to hide!

  1. Retinoid is absent in your skincare products.

Retinoid is an ingredient that should be on your skincare products because it is proven to reduce the wrinkles found on your face.

  1. You do not exfoliate!

Take time out of your week at least once to exfoliate your face! This helps in removing the dead skin cells in order for the skin to change.

  1. Sleeping with your make up on

Don’t clog your pores and let your skin breath by removing your make up before heading to bed!

No sleep or little sleep doesn’t leave enough time for the skin to renew itself, so make sure to get a goods nights rest ALWAYS!

The Proper Way to Cleanse Your Face

Girls make sure that cleansing their faces at least twice a day is part of their skincare routine, in order to have a clean face after waking up and before going to bed and also, to avoid those irritating pimples. But, what is exactly is the proper way to wash your face? All you need is soap and water, right? Well, it’s actually more than that.

Before putting anything on your face or wetting it, it’s necessary to get the right temperature of the water. Avoid using any extreme temperatures because it’s proven to cause dry skin. Not too hot and not too cold is the right choice, so basically lukewarm water.

Once girls got their routine down with their skincare, they usually get lazy and just rub and scrub away with their facial cleanser. The actual way to do it to get the best benefits is by rubbing the cleanser in circular motions. Do this more importantly around the eyes because it helps in de-puffing them and removing that hard to get eye make-up.

Think it all ends with the face? Well, you’re wrong. Washing the part close to your face, like your neck, is just as important as washing your face. The neck actually shows aging much faster than any part of your body, so make sure to take care of it too! A common place for breakouts is the forehead around the hairline. The cause of this is the cleanser that’s left on the face after not rinsing properly. Avoid this by rinsing your face properly after washing. Try using a wet washcloth to remove all residue left from the cleanser.
