Sometimes you just have to get back to the basics when it comes to skincare. And that means streamlining your routine with a highly efficient yet low-maintenance face wash, treatments and mask. I am usually on the go so I love using products that have double use that can allow me to get ready quickly and efficiently. Here is a quick five minute skincare routine that will get you out the door to enjoy that beautiful Spring weather.
1. Gentle Foaming Face Wash
I like to use a gentle foaming face wash daily that can wash away dirt in one quick wash without over-drying or irritating my sensitive skin. I hate when you feel like you have to wash your face a second time just to get it feeling clean only to dry it out. One rinse is all you need with this new gentle foaming face wash.
2. Brightening Serum
Give your skin a quick daily dose of brightening and tightening with a good brightening serum. I loved trying this one by Skin Laundry. Not only does this serum brighten dark spots and even skin tone, but it's ingredients also combine to make it a powerful anti-aging serum. Choosing products that pull double duty will definitely help shorten your daily skincare routine without sacrificing results.
3. Daily Moisturizer with SPF
You cannot skimp on the SPF. No matter what. But your skin also needs that essential hydration. This Daily Moisturizer with SPF 35 provides an ideal balance between the two. Definitely look for a sheer, matte finish when shopping for SPF moisturizers because you don't want it to feel greasy under your makeup.
4. Anti-Aging Eye Cream
When shopping for an eye cream you really want it to do exactly what you need it to: reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. But I hate when the formula leaves your under-eyes greasy under your makeup. So again, look for a lightweight formula, like this one.
5. Hydrating Sheet Mask
As often as you have the time (I like to mask on Sunday's), apply a hydrating sheet mask to replenish and refresh your skin. They are also perfect for using after a long (or even short) flight. You only need to leave this one on for 10-15 minutes, so it won't take up too much of your weekend time.
A quality skincare routine can definitely feel time-consuming but finding products that can pull doubly duty will definitely help to streamline the process. If you're not familiar with Skin Laundry, they're like the drybar for facials: they have advanced non-invasive lasers and light therapies in their store-fronts. Now, they've created a product line of cleansers, treatments and masks to continue the care at home and I just love how each product pulls double duty and thus streamlines your beauty routine.
What Sephora Loves about Skin Laundry
I recently spoke with Sephora and they love the brand too! They have featured Skin Laundry on their "Scouted By Sephora" page and they love that the skincare line is so low maintenance and accessibly priced without compromising the efficiency of the product.
