The Perfect Low-Maintenance Skincare Regimen for The Lazy Gal
At North Texas Plastic Surgery, we believe that good skin comes from having the proper skin care routine. Whether you’re too busy juggling different roles in your life or just too lazy to fuss over skin care, you still need a routine to keep your skin glowing.
The dirt and oil that accumulate on your skin throughout the day can mix with your makeup, thus clogging pores and leading to breakouts. Giving in to laziness can be costly in the long run, as over-the-counter treatments may not be enough to resolve some skin conditions—especially if you have sensitive skin.
Here are some simple, low-maintenance skincare tips to get better skin even if you’re the laziest girl around.
Stay hydrated throughout the day.
Drinking enough water every day is one of the simplest and most effective things you can do to keep your skin hydrated. This results to skin that looks radiant and plump. Hydrated skin lessens the need for various creams, lotions, and treatments. To ensure that you’ll be able to drink sufficient amount of water daily, always carry a big bottle that you can fill with water.
Stick to a three-step skincare method in the morning.
Keep things simple in your morning skincare routine by sticking to the essentials: cleanse, moisturize, and apply sunscreen. Never head out of the house without applying sunscreen of at least SPF 30 on your face to protect your skin from premature aging, wrinkles, and other skin blemishes.
You can even cut down the three-step process to only two steps by opting for multi-functional products such as a cleansing cream or milk product that moisturizes and blocks UV rays or a moisturizer with SPF (with the cleanser being a separate product).
Always take off your makeup before going to bed.
If you’re too lazy to drag yourself out of bed after an exhausting day, no problem. Always keep a pack of makeup-removing facial wipes or no-rinse micellar water within easy reach (like your nightstand!) so you can remove your makeup before falling asleep.
Buy multi-tasking products to save time and space.
Look for double-duty products for your morning and nighttime skin care routine. Micellar water is one product worth trying because it functions as a cleanser and makeup remover and can also purify, hydrate, and soothe skin at the same time.
By stocking up on multitasking products like these, you’ll be able to maintain a skincare routine that will not take much of your time and will not clutter your dresser.
Get sufficient sleep at night.
Late night parties, movie marathons, and any other activities that keep you awake until the wee hours of the morning can damage your skin. Getting a good night sleep is the easiest and healthiest way to fix fine lines and under-eye bags!
While you are sleeping, the skin repairs and renews themselves to some extent without the aid of any beauty products. Sleep for seven to nine hours at the most and don’t oversleep because it is as damaging to the skin as the lack of sleep.
