Skincare saviours for time poor women
Whether you’re busy with work, family, kids, appointments, or all of the above (because #lockdownlife right?), taking time morning and night for your skincare routine can feel like an arduous task but without proper skin care treatments, you can’t expect the glowing skin you’re dreaming of.
Achieving great skin comes with two massive misconceptions. The first is that you need to spend hours applying products each day and the second is that you need dozens of aesthetic skin care products to begin with. We’re here to prove that by forming a simple routine, with exceptional skincare, you can take care of your complexion and still manage your overflowing diary each day!
Let’s jump right into it and uncover three total time savers that keep your skin glowing.
Never forget the essentials
Every effective skincare routine should be built on the foundations of total skin essentials: cleansing, renewing, and protecting. With an abundance of ‘latest and greatest’ aesthetic skin care brands on the market, it’s important to have your essentials covered to allow these more potent products to work to the best of their ability.
Every time poor woman should dedicate a few minutes of their day to cleansing – especially if they’re wearing sunscreen and makeup during their day. A thorough daily cleanse will not only remove these products from your skin after a long day but also take dirt, grime, bacteria, and pollution with it. Whilst it can feel tempting to grab a makeup wipe instead of a cleanser, we implore you to stick to a proper cleansing routine to truly get the job done.
One of our favourite ways to renew the skin but save time whilst you’re at it is to switch your exfoliant over to a peel pad. Peel pads offer a sophisticated exfoliation without the hassle that comes with other exfoliation methods. This is because many peel pad products do not require a wash off and therefore, can be done in conjunction with your evening skincare routine. We turn to the AlphaRet® Exfoliating Peel Pads by SkinBetter Science as they don’t require any product removal and feature a triple-action formulation that will deliver the exfoliation you need, plus added skin clearing and rejuvenating benefits.
Then of course, the protection stage of every good skincare routine. This is a non-negotiable part of your daily routine, regardless of how time poor you are! We all have time to apply our sunscreen. Damage caused by UV exposure is the leading contributor of ageing in Australia and one that can be easily prevented through proper sunscreen use.
Our skincare partners have made it incredibly easy to get your daily protection, whilst ticking another job off your beauty to-do list thanks to dual-benefit SPF products.
The first is the Aspect Envirostat SPF 50+ which delivers your essential moisturiser and sun protection in one with the added skin soothing and protective benefits of Vitamin E and antioxidants.
The second is the SkinBetter Science Sun Better Tone Smart SPF 50+ Compact. With tone-adapting properties, this compact is not only your daily sun protection but primer or light colour corrector step in your makeup routine.
Maximise multitasking products
There is nothing a busy woman loves more than a good multitasking moment, especially when it’s saving her time. Fortunately, your skincare routine is one of the leading places you can save time by seriously multitasking, thanks to serums.
When you choose a professional-grade serum, you’re choosing the highest quality ingredients, formulations, and science on the market. One of the benefits of professional products is that they regularly deliver results for more than one skin concern through a single application. This is fantastic for time poor women as you can tackle multiple skin concerns at once!
Your key skincare ingredients, Vitamin A, B and C all deliver multiple benefits through single applications – especially in the anti-ageing, skin clearing and skin brightening departments. These are the ingredients to be getting your hands on when you’re wanting to maximise every second of your skincare routine.
Book a skin consultation
Let’s face it. When it comes to spending enormous amounts of time on your skincare routine, half of that time is spent trying to decipher what products are right for your skin, what order to apply them and whether they’re even working. This uncertainty can really eat up your time and the money in your wallet. To start gaining back precious time each day, a skin consultation is your answer.
By booking in a professional skin consultation, you’re committing to understanding your skin properly. Now you might be wondering, “but wouldn’t booking an appointment be even more time consuming?” but hear us out. Imagine if you could have a skincare routine crafted for you, by professionals, that take your time, budget, and skin health into consideration. In the long run, that time spent in the clinic is going to pay off tenfold!
Farewell the time spent wandering the skincare aisles for the right products (and never finding them) and say hello to a simple, curated and incredibly effective routine that sets you up for success. Plus, you’ll enjoy a take-home peptide mask so you can discover the difference from the get-go.
