Got 1 minute? Skincare doesn’t have to be a time-consuming process, but for great results, it has to be consistent. Some skincare routines can be completed in less than a minute, so here’s what you can do to pamper your skin without taking too much time off your other daily activities:
Tone and moisturize
To save some seconds, use a spray toner! Spritz some all over your face and then apply a bit of moisturizer on the damp skin. Massage until absorbed and you’re ready to go!
Grab an exfoliating cleanser of your choice and gently massage all over your face for 1 minute. Voilà, your skin is smooth and baby soft.
Got a minute on a late afternoon? Quickly wipe your face with a cleansing cloth to remove impurities or remove excess oil with some blotting papers if you have makeup on.
Apply a mask
You’d think this needs more time, but a cleansing or hydrating mask can be used for 1 minute only. If you’d prefer to create your own mask (and spare a couple extra minutes preparing it), mix 1 part olive oil with 1 part honey for a quick hydrating mask, or equal parts honey and fresh lemon juice for normal and oily skin. Otherwise use a store-bought 1 minute mask and leave on while you count to 60!
Treat your imperfections
Got an unsightly pimple, dark circles or a deep wrinkle? 1 minute is all you need to apply targeted treatments on these problem areas. Finish with a light touch of powder or tinted moisturizer and you’re good to go.
Take your make up off
Yes, this is one of the most amazing things you can do for your skin and 1 minute is all it takes. Use disposable pre-moistened wipes for a quick makeup removal before bed and you don’t even need to cleanse with water anymore.
