Calm down, we’re not calling you lazy – promise! What we mean is that you’re a busy girl and all week you’re out there doing an amazing job with little time for yourself. Between your demanding work schedule, gym routine and of course your calendar full of social commitments (oooh you social butterfly you!), how do you have time for skincare? Well roll up, roll up – we might just have the solution with this blog dedicated to skin care tips for lazy girls!
Several studies show that your overall performance is affected by what you wear each day. So while it’s quite normal to want to go home after a long day and be a lazy girl kicking back on the couch, it’s not in your best interest. You wear your face every day so make sure you take care of it even when all you want to do is curl up on the couch with a glass of wine and a season of whatever you favourite box set is currently!
These three simple but effective skin care tips will take you from couch potato status to goddess in no time at all and will ensure your skin won’t suffer the consequences of your hectic lifestyle.
1. Make the most of your nightstand
We’ve all been there – oh yes, crawling into bed without washing our face, tut tut! So let’s make the best out of this situation so it doesn’t happen again. Instead, just stash a supply of your favourite face wipes and moisturiser nearby. Believe us, your skin will thank you for it!
2. Swap hot for warm water in the shower.
While we all love a hot shower, hot water can play havoc with your skin care regime later on and end up taking more time! Try taking a warm shower instead of a hot one and it will prevent you from having to apply copious amounts of moisturuser throughout the day to hydrate your skin. You should still apply a little bit of moisturiser as you normally would, but it will mean you won’t have to do multiple applications all day long.
Are you suffering from dry skin but not sure why? Our previous blog will help you get to the bottom of it once and for all!
3. Take two.
Wouldn’t life be easier if you always had your favourite skin care products with you? Whatever your busy life may look like, chances are there are plenty of times your skin care routine has taken a backseat simply because you didn’t have your products with you. At the gym but forgot to throw a moisturiser in your sport’s bag? Last minute decision to stay at your friend or boyfriend’s house? It happens to us all, which is why you should always buy two of each of your favourite products. Keep one in your bag, car or purse, and keep the other in your bathroom. Bonus: You’ll always have a backup should your first run out.
If you find that you do have a bit more time to indulge, why not try an at home facial?
