5 ways to speed up your beauty and skincare routine

Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day... The good news? There are plenty of ways we can speed up our skincare routine and save ourselves some precious time. Here are 5 great tips!


Organise your bathroom

It can take ages to root things out when our bathroom's in a shambles. Start by sorting out your products: check their use by date and bin them if necessary. Put treatments that are part of your daily beauty routine to one side and the rest in a box or drawer: make-up you rarely use, weekly face mask, sunscreens, spare make-up brushes...  

Make the most of your shower time

Combine a relaxing shower with a fine grain body scrub, to rid the skin of dead cells that can suffocate the epidermis.
Finish off with a blast of cold water to your thighs, buttocks, abdomen and chest. This will firm up your skin and boost your circulation. Go on, be brave!  


Kill two (or more) birds with one stone

Speed up your beauty and skincare routine by applying multi-purpose treatments. We don't need to cram our bathrooms with dozens of products: a tinted BB cream will moisturise your skin and give you a glowing complexion, a dry oil will nourish dry skin and the tips of your hair, whilst a creamy lipstick can always double up as a blusher.  

Diarise your beauty and skincare routine

Apply a face mask one day, do your nails the next, scrub another day, wax later on in the week... Try to adapt your beauty routine. Make Sunday evenings pampering time: a couple of hours of sheer pleasure when you're not rushed off your feet.  

Nocturnal magic

During the night, we sleep...
But there are things we can do before hitting the sack. Leave a face mask on overnight and wake up to a peachy complexion, apply an oil to your hair for shiny locks the following day, rub cream into your feet and pop on a pair socks - baby soft tootsies guaranteed!
