Speedy Skincare Routine For Flawless Skin

If your life is in work-eat-sleep-repeat mode and your skin is feeling neglected, it is the right time to start an everyday skincare routine. It doesn’t have to be a 10 step elaborate routine, even having a basic morning and night skincare routine can do wonders for your skin. Do not worry, here's a super-quick morning and night skincare routine to help you get back your glow.

The quick morning routine

Mornings eh? Wake the kids, make breakfast, glug a coffee, do the school run and leg it to work, not a minute to spare. The days when you hogged the bathroom are a distant memory. In other words, you are too busy to take care of your skin and so need a quick, easy beauty routine. Start by cleansing with micellar water, like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Purifying Micellar Water, which'll get rid of any toxins that have built up (grime, sweat, excess sebum, oil) and freshen up your face. After this, simply use the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence. It is a lightweight essence that is formulated using salicylic acid for the skin. This salicylic acid product penetrates up to 10 layers deep into the skin* and deeply nourishes it. If you are confused about how to use salicylic acid on your face, with this essence all you have to do is take 3-4 drops on your palm and gently pat it into your skin. The uses of salicylic acid include that it brightens your skin and speeds up the skin regeneration process.

Follow this with a sunscreen that will protect you from UVA and UVB rays with an SPF of 30-50. Your skin will look smooth, naturally radiant and be able to handle the elements - how great is that? Finish off by applying a lip balm to nourish, protect and add a kissable shine. And pour your morning cup.

Taming the evening hassle

The day is about to end but you are off again. Leave work, pick up the kids, deal with the inevitable homework strops, get them into their pj's, eat and collapse. And once again wish you could lock yourself in the bathroom for an hour. But no worries, here are 3 easy-peasy steps to shake off your busy day. Cleanse your face with a face oil, the quickest way to remove the most clingy of makeup. Oil removes oil - this one's a time-saving no brainer. Face oils cleanse and soothe skin. And it doesn't matter if your skin is on the oily side - they work for all skin types. Follow with a purifying toner to get rid of any traces of makeup, grime and dead cells. Bonus point: They hydrate and revitalise our skin. Just make sure you choose one that suits your needs. After a hectic day like this, you can use a L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence Sheet Mask while laying in bed. Just remove the tissue mask soaked with the goodness of essence and place it across your face. Let it sit on your skin for 15 mins and take it off. Pat all the excess serum into your skin. This sheet mask is enriched with an essence that will make your skin super soft and plump.

Finish off by applying a night cream to repair any damage. Night creams nourish our skin and boost cell renewal while we sleep. If you're in your thirties, go for an anti-ageing night cream and invest in an eye contour treatment. If you have dry skin, apply nourishing textures that will pump it full of nutritious goodies without causing irritations. If you have oily or blemished skin, apply fluid textures or gels that will let it breathe.

In a fast-paced life, you should opt for products that are high-quality and low- maintenance. While using products with salicylic acid, you need to know the right method on how to use salicylic acid. It helps you understand the skincare mistakes to avoid while using any skincare products and avoiding any irritation to your skin. While using products with active serum ingredients it is important to choose products that are well formulated like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence and Sheet Mask. Along with a speedy skincare routine, ensure that you consume a healthy diet and intake enough water and sleep to help your skin take care of itself too.
