Speedy beauty routine for perfect skin

If your life is in work-eat-sleep-repeat mode and your skin is feeling neglected. Do not worry, here's super-quick beauty 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 for your skin and so need a quick, easy beauty routine. Start by cleansing with micellar water. It'll get rid of any toxins that have built up overnight (grime, sweat) and freshen up your face. No need to spend time rinsing it off. Follow with a BB cream, an all-in-one wonder that will moisturise, even out your skin tone, camouflage blemishes and protect you from UV rays. Go for a CC cream if you want to mask any red patches. Your skin will look smooth, naturally radiant and be able to handle the elements - how flawless 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 matter, here are 3 easy-peasy steps to shake off your busy day. Cleanse 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. 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 with causing irritations. If you have oily or blemished skin, apply fluid textures or gels that will let it breathe.

In the fast-paced life, you should opt for products that are high-quality and low- maintenance. One that absorbs in your skin quickly and also works on the cells to revive and repair the glow; like the new L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence that is enriched with skin refining droplets to give you a glowing and brightening skin. Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence penetrates up to 10 layers deep into the skin to repair the skin cell and hydrate it. It contains active ingredients like Salicylic Acid, which accelerates skin renewal and mildly exfoliates to refine pores and skin texture.

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.
