4 Step Skin Care

Perhaps you regularly experience late nights studying or entertaining, or you’re occasionally up with a sick child. Daily shower aside, if you find yourself with limited time to get beautified in the morning the following is a must-do regimen before starting your day. In order to apply the proper product you must know your skin type – oily, normal/combination, dry, sensitive or sun damaged.

The key here is simplicity.  Find a good cleanser that works well with your skin, avoiding bar soaps as they tend to be drying.  Take care not to over-cleanse (nightly should be sufficient). In the morning, a lukewarm water rinse is enough to remove excess oils from last night’s moisturizing.

Use a gentle scrub with tiny grains to remove the top layer of dead skin cells that dull the complexion.  This will keep skin glowing year-round.

Your skin will tell you how much to moisturize; when it’s tight, it needs hydration.  Be careful not to over moisturize or you may clog your pores.

Sunscreen is the most crucial part of every skincare regimen.  And because sun damage is the number one cause of wrinkles, it’s important to apply protection daily.

These tips will keep you on track in the mornings, but if you end up with a moment to spare, brush on bronzer and a quick coat of mascara for a fabulous finishing touch.

When you’re short on time, what’s your must-do beauty routine?
