Nowadays our lives are busy! While we’re trying to juggle everything from simply drinking enough water, working hard, chasing dreams and putting the kids to sleep, it’s easy to see how the likes of self-care and skincare routines start to slip. So, if you find yourself stretched and out of hours by the end of the day, but you desperately want to see those glowing skin results, then this one is for you!
Check out our quick and easy tips, and go with what works for you.
Keep your routine simple
Less is more and we know you don’t always have the energy for a 10-step skincare routine, especially while you’re flat out in your daily life. You might like to focus on a super easy, manageable routine to cover the basics – a cleanser, toner and moisturizer.
- Clarity: Nourishing Dual-Phase Cleanser – Start your routine with an oil cleanser to nourish your skin with essential fatty acids, improve the skin barrier’s function and keep skin healthy and hydrated too
- Harmony: Radiance Boosting Toner – Spritz a balancing toner onto your skin to increase its level of hydration, right before applying your moisturizer. This will help the moisturizer at your next step to absorb properly (increasing the moisturizers’ effectiveness) while upping hydration for supple, plump and glowy skin
- Moisturize – Right after spritzing your toner, apply your moisturizer to your dampened skin, to really increase hydration. Choose the right moisturizer for your skin type – whether that’s Sol (best for oily skin types), The Limelight (suitable for all skin types) or Luna Vitality (best for dry or mature skin types)
Embrace multi-use products
Increase the productiveness and effectiveness of your skincare routine by using multi-use products. We love Canvas: Resurfacing AHA & BHA Treatment because, as the name suggests, it includes both AHAs and BHAs to exfoliate not only the surface of your skin, but deeper into your pores too. You can simply pop it on, go about your business for 5-10 minutes, then rinse off while you’re in the shower – it's so good for multi-tasking!
The Foundation: Flawless Retinol & Vitamin C Lotion is formulated with both vitamin A (retinol) and vitamin C – meaning it covers a looong list of benefits. Vitamin A is well known as the holy grail ingredient and skincare for its many benefits such as boosting collagen and elastin production, reducing the appearance of pore size, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and so much more. While vitamin C is known as an effective brightening ingredient that also helps to diminish pigmentation, uneven skin tone and sun spots too. As a duo, they pack some power and you can find out even more about it here.
And when it comes to assisting skin sensitivities (redness, breakouts, etc.), increasing hydration and protecting the delicate skin barrier too, The Limelight: Brightening Probiotic Lotion is one multi-use product that really covers a lot of common skin goals.
Utilise your shower time
Admit it – there's nothing more convenient than masking before you jump into the shower! Not only can it make your routine quick and effortless, but it can also increase the products effectiveness. A steamy shower helps to unclog pores, translating to ingredients soaking right in to work their magic. We love to pop on Refined: Clarifying Red Wine Mask before a shower.
Make the night count
Our skin (as with all of our cells) goes into repair mode at night. If you’re only going to fit your skincare routine in once a day, then make it count at night! Cleanse, tone and moisturize at minimum every evening.
Just like working out, consistency is key, and it’s no different when it comes to your skincare! So, take time each and every day to invest in and care for yourself, and you'll feel so much better. It’s a great way to wind down, and, the results will speak for themselves!
