Skincare is necessary if you want your skin to look its best. But at the same time, who can really be bothered to go through the million and one beauty steps that so many women put themselves through? It takes way too much time and money, and frankly, far too much energy.
Women need to save that energy for things they actually like doing, and unfortunately, that leads some people to simply ignore their skin. However, this is not the right solution either. It won’t be long before you start to spot the usual problems that go along with neglect.
In that case, we got to work figuring out the things that make the biggest impact. We decided to create a routine that could work for everyone while saving a significant amount of time. These are some easy skincare tricks we’ve found that will allow you to get the maximum benefit with a minimum amount of time and effort.
An Overnight Mask
An overnight mask is a really satisfying skincare approach because it feels like cheating. All the goodness is happening while you’re fast asleep, so you don’t have to pay attention to it, massage anything in light circles, or spend a long time applying it.
Because an overnight mask is applied for longer, your body can get far more benefit from it than a wax on, wax off situation. But the key is to choose the right kind of overnight mask. You want to pick something anti-aging, especially if you are prone to acne breakouts, and moisturizing masks can actually make this worse.
A multi-action anti-aging mask should help protect, repair, hydrate and firm the skin to increase its radiance. Because these masks do lots of different things at once, you don’t have to. What’s more, because they’re active for a longer period, there’s more benefit to a single application than doing things every morning and evening for just a few minutes at a time.
It might be common sense but the best thing you can do for your skin is to sleep more. Because sleeping is the time when your body re-balances and repairs itself. When you don’t have essential mental and physical processes running, the body can help other, more neglected areas like the skin.
Sleeping also helps to calm immune responses, such as dermatitis and other allergic reactions to the environment that causes the skin to appear blotchy and inflamed. It also helps the body to put water in the right places, reducing swelling, puffiness, and problematic dark patches under the eyes.
Sleep also improves your metabolism, which helps the body absorb the nutrients essential to creating new and healthy cells. By contrast, not enough sleep can leave all these processes out of sync, thus increasing the visible signs of aging.
All-in-one products should give you all the benefits in a single application, which means you don’t have to create an intimidating apothecary cupboard full of different lotions and potions just to get clean skin.
My favorite all-in-one product contain Pitera, it’s a by-product of Japanese Sake that contains amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and organic acids that help the skin to stay youthful far beyond its years.
These so-called ‘miracle waters’ are lightweight cleansers and toners that can nourish the skin while cleaning it. This is a great way for busy individuals to minimize the amount of time spend preparing their skin for the days ahead.
So there you have it, we’ve created a simple skin care routine which can be carried out during your bedtime. Depending on your needs, and if you want to spend more time on more processes, you can combine all these tactics with your usual regime to see a big difference.
