Modern life is hectic; It is not always possible to perfect the wing eyeliner or match lipstick shade with shoes. For some, beauty means applying a little more than a touch of mascara; for others it is the whole face (with outline). But whatever your approach, saving a low-maintenance beauty routine can save your life when you are short on time. Whether you want 15 minutes more in bed or just want a fresh, natural look, these beauty hacks will take you from “I just woke up” to “I just woke up like this” in no time.
Take care of your skin
Whether you adopt a low-maintenance beauty routine or not, it is very important to take care of your skin. Create a skin care routine that suits your skin type and make sure to cleanse and moisturize twice a day. Toner is good for removing residual impurities, so they are especially useful if your skin is oily or prone to acne. Because toners are formulated to remove sebum, oil and dirt from your pores, they are also a great way to fight blackheads and blemishes.
Invest in treatments
Beauty treatments are generally considered unique; We only tend to get them when we feel like being pampered or if we’ve got a beauty voucher (and it’s about to expire!). But facials are becoming an increasingly popular investment for anyone who wants to reduce the time and energy they spend on their daily beauty regimen.
Facial treatment delays signs of aging, removes blackheads and blemishes, increases collagen production and improves skin elasticity. Because they enhance the overall appearance of the skin, they reduce the need for strong makeup. It is recommended that you order a facial every 4-6 weeks (depending on your skin type) as this is the time it takes for your skin to complete a full skin cycle. See our guide to getting facials to get the most out of your treatment.
Invest in multitasking products
It is easy to be worn by skin care, but experts agree that stacking so many lotions and potions is not the best for our skin. Applying different products in layers can clog pores, cause stains and cause irritation. By simplifying your routine, you save time and also improve the condition of the skin.
Scandi skin care, the latest trend to hit the industry, takes a minimalist and beauty-free approach to beauty. With a focus on multitasking products made from high-quality ingredients (often naturally sourced), Scandi skin care takes a “less is more” approach that dermatologists love. Look for products loaded with antioxidants, retinol and SPF protection, and choose a cleanser that contains AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acids). AHAs exfoliate and repair the skin, while BHAs, which are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, remove the pores. Both reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; they also lighten matte skin tones, moisturize and smooth the skin.
Lift your lashes
Whether you use an eyelash curler or book an eyelash lift treatment, your lashes are worth paying attention to. Eyelash curling is one of the most overlooked aspects of any beauty routine, and since most lash curling tools look like small torture devices, it is not hard to see why many skip this step. However, that’s the only thing most makeup artists swear by; It is the perfect way to prepare your lashes for mascara. But even if you choose to go natural, your eyes will look bigger and your lashes appear longer.
Try a tinted moisturizer or BB cream
Tinted moisturizers and BB creams are light pigmented lotions that provide coverage, hydration and (in most cases) SPF protection; some also contain nourishing antioxidants like vitamins A, E and C. Both are lighter than foundation and provide natural coverage without clogging pores or becoming “sticky”. Use one of these instead of the foundation during the week, or when you do not need as much coverage. You can always go back to using a foundation when looking for a more matte finish or if you need a heavier foundation.
Make a new face with a bold lip
If you do not want (or need) coverage, but still want to put on some makeup, apply a touch of mascara and a deep shade of lipstick. With minimal effort (we’re talking about 2-3 minutes) a bold lip, even without other makeup, really packs a punch. It’s a great way to enhance your appearance if you go out after work but don’t have time to put on your full face makeup.
Whatever your beauty routine, the most important thing to remember is that it should work for you. Tailor your daily regimen to your skin type, personality and lifestyle and you will always reap the benefits.
