The ideal skincare regimen "the right way to wash your face" is way more than just using a facial wash. The skin is threatened every day by pollution, UV rays, and other environmental factors, so it needs to be nourished with skincare products to be resilient against these elements. Oh, we also want to emphasize that an extravagant skincare product lineup is not synonymous to a better regimen. In fact, a low-maintenance routine that focuses on what your skin really needs is key.

So, if you're taking a huge step from your usual bar of soap and makeup remover, we're teaching you how you can slowly take extra care of your skin:

Use multi-tasking skincare products

The most obvious way is to use skincare products that are double-duty. By doing so, it won't be overwhelming for you and your schedule to fuse in this *extra prettifying* habit.

For example, cleansing waters (or micellar water, as French girls call it) act as a facial cleanser, toner, and light moisturizer in one. BB creams offer anti-aging ingredients, sun protection, and coverage; eye creams serve as high-performing lip balms; and face oils are good even for oily skin!


Put skincare products by your bedside

The usual "I'm so tired" excuse will be invalid if you strategically place your skincare arsenal near your bed. In cases when you can't lift a finger anymore, wipe off dirt and makeup with cleansing wipes and slap on a sleeping pack for express glow.

Incorporate it to your makeup routine

Since most of us are pressed for time, using makeup that also act as skincare is the best option. If you're using foundation, try one loaded with good-for-the-skin ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, SPF, and other plant extracts.

Monitor the results

You'll be more motivated to be more devoted to your newly-minted skincare regimen when you see changes in your skin. Do you notice that your face looks more plump and lifted? How about blemishes? Are they already non-existent? Also, put in mind that having a good skincare routine isnât just about vanity; it's about being responsible for your natural beauty and investing in yourself, too.
