How to: do a lazy night skincare routine.
Look, I get it. Some nights you just can’t be bothered to wash your face. I’ve been there. Honestly, it happens to me on the regular. As much as I like using 3 different cleansers, exfoliants, toners, serums, masks, and face creams multiple times a week, sometimes I just wanna say “Forget it!” And go to bed. That pillow’s siren song is just too good to put off sometimes.
So, I’m gonna share my super lazy night ultimate skincare routine with you. Even better, it takes less than 5 minutes to do and can be done, literally, in your bed with just 3 products.
Cleanse. You can’t get away without cleansing your skin every night. It’s the first step to preventing premature aging and acne. So, I use a micellar water cleanser. I like Eminence’s Rice Milk cleanser. Just pour a bit on to a cotton square and wipe the day off your skin. Now, you can totally stop here if you’d like, but you might as well do the next 2 steps that 90% of people put off but where you’ll see the BEST results for your skin.
Exfoliate. Instead of using those inconvenient scrubs that you must wash off, reach for an effective but gentle exfoliating serum. My favorite is Eminence’s Firm Skin Exfoliating Peel. All you do is take the cotton round, pump twice, wipe on, and you’re done with exfoliating! It even comes with cotton rounds so you don’t have to pick some up at the store. Plus, it self neutralizes so no need to wash off! Exfoliation is key to preventing breakouts, blackheads, and lifting dark spots & scars. Super easy and quick!
Masque. That’s right. I said masque. No you don’t have to wait 10 minutes to wash it off either. Eminence masques are safe to sleep in! I LOVE sleeping in their Bamboo Age Corrective masque because it makes such a great luxe overnight anti-aging skin treatment! Even better, you don’t have it getting all over your pillow either because its like a cream and absorbs into your skin.
So there you have it. My lazy night skincare routine. You have NO excuse to never wash your face at night again. Just keep these three product on your nightstand along with a pack of cotton rounds and a trash can.
You get the sleep you need and your skin gets the attention it deserves.
