Eureka! I feel like I have found the perfect regimen for me that can work day and night…with as minimal products as possible.
Don’t get me wrong, a girl loves her scrubs, masks, and other luxurious feeling skincare products. Unfortunately, said girl doesn’t always have the time to partake in a mini at home spa moment. So, for a while I’ve been trying to come up with a quick and thorough skincare routine that uses as few products as possible, can be completed from beginning to the end within five minutes and can be used morning AND night. I believe that I have finally come up the right products for this feat.
- Cleanse – I apply a large pump of Cetaphil cleanser in my hands and rub on face to loosen makeup. Then I rinse my face and rub in another pump on my makeup less face for one final cleanse. In the morning, one pump does it.
- Tone – I recently used up my Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion and replaced it with Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion, which is formulated for oily, acne prone skin. The weather here in Memphis has been fluctuating and getting warm (Sorry my northeastern readers who are currently snowed in), which as caused my skin to get oilier and breakout. So, I switched to this formula, which has been working amazingly.
- Treat – This InstaNatural Vitamin C serum first entered my life when I was battling the flu a few weeks ago and it was a pretty much a miracle in a bottle for my dry and dull skin due to being sick. I apply this morning and night I’ve noticed that this has helped with clearing my skin discoloration, because it’s chunked full of skin benefiting and an-aging ingredients. I’m hooked on this stuff!
- Moisturize – Speaking of hooked on something; Argan Oil! Once you’ve used argan oil, its almost hard to not find a use in your everyday life. I use this as a face moisturizer, cuticle oil, and I actually using it as a oil treatment for my hair as I type this. So many uses! I use 1-2 pumps in the morning and 2-3 pumps at night, because it instantly absorbs into my skin without an oily residue.
I’ve been using this routine for about 2 weeks now and it has been amazing. I try to use a mask once a week and add sunscreen to my skin in the morning. However, other than that, this has been my go-to routine and I’m loving it. I really suggest everyone to come up with a quick, but efficient daily skincare routine.
