4 Steps, 5 Minutes

Many people complain that using a skin care regimen just takes too long. Caring for your skin doesn’t have to take up your whole evening. All you need are 4 simple steps to get you on your way to better skin, but first pick the right regimen for your skin type.

Step 1: Cleansing

You should wash your face twice a day but especially at night. Start with a gentle but effective cleansing product. During the cleansing phase you’re washing away makeup, dirt from day and your morning sunscreen all of which can clog your pores. Never use hot water as that can age and damage your skin.

Step 2: Toner

This is one step that isn’t understood and normally skipped. Take the extra 60 seconds to add this step to your routine. Toning removes the makeup, dirt and oil missed by every cleansing product. Toner also prepares your skin to absorb moisturizers.

Step 3: Moisturize

After you’ve washed and toned your face you should always apply moisturizer because the cleansing process strips away your vital oils. Using a moisturizer with SPF is highly recommended for your day time routine. You can use a night renewing cream in the evening to achieve the same effect without the SPF.

Step 4: Exfoliating

This is the easiest step because you only need to do it once a week. Pick a day where you might have an extra minute or so and stick to it. You can refer back to my earlier post that highlights the importance of exfoliating.

All of the steps above don’t need to take more than 5 minutes combined unless, you really want to pamper yourself and have time to enjoy the process.
