Simplicity is key: the benefits of paring down your beauty routine
-Aug 1, Emma Wilder, Beauty -
Instead of having multiple beauty products that you never quite seem to end up using in your bathroom – why not scale back your skincare regime? Here’s how.
Even with the best will in the world, sometimes the rigmarole of a 10-step beauty routine can all seem a bit much. With a plethora of products to explore and new skincare trends appearing daily, it can be easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of cleansers, toners, masks and moisturisers. We’ve been there, too. Discover all the good you can do for your skin when you take a step back from your intensive routine.
Rest, repair and renew
When it comes to beauty, we all know that sleep is everyone’s best friend. So why deprive yourself of those precious minutes of sleep with a skincare routine that takes half an hour to complete? Cut yourself some slack when it comes to your strict regime and enjoy that extra 30 minutes lie in in the morning. Your skin will thank you for it!
Enjoy the moments that matter
The scary truth is that women, on average, spend a grand total of three years of their lives looking in the mirror, perfecting their look. Of course, we all want to show the world our best selves, but does that really mean applying two rounds of cleanser, a toner, a five-minute mask and a moisturiser before even thinking about applying make-up? We don’t think so. Give yourself time to be with the people who love you for who you are and don’t miss out on the little things in life that really matter.
Keep your skin healthy
It’s a little-known fact that many of the most common skincare ingredients actually do more harm than good when it comes to keeping your skin looking its best. That’s why it’s really important to know exactly what your products contain and how they work together. It goes without saying that this is much easier to achieve with a simplified skincare shelf.
Save your pennies
We’d venture to guess that the amount of money you spend on your beauty and skincare routine is more than you’d like to admit. With a new “miracle” product or routine appearing out of the woodwork every other day, it can be tempting to jump on the bandwagon only to end up with a cabinet full of products you’ve only used once or twice. Instead, invest in a simple yet effective beauty routine that you know you can commit to and prevent spending money that literally goes down the drain.
