Summer is winding down and school is just around the corner. School bells are beginning to ring all around the country and moms everywhere are getting everything together to ensure that their families have a smooth transition from summertime into school time.
As this time of year is usually filled with excitement and some anxiety as the new school year begins. You have to say goodbye to summer by starting a new routine and busy schedule. Keep your skin healthy and speed up your skincare routine with these few tips. We promise you won’t be spending more than 10 minutes in front of the mirror each morning.
Whether you’re heading to class or getting your kids ready, the time spent getting ready in the morning is shortened. Here are some of our favorite quick tips to get you ready fast, and still looking good throughout the day.
- Cleanse. Jane Iredale’s Beauty Prep Facial Cleanser will help you get out of the door faster with a lot less work. Optimize the benefits of the makeup you love with this high-performance daily micellar cleansing water, designed to help makeup go on smoother and last longer. When you’re crunched on time in the morning, this “all in one” product is the way to go. This micellar cleansing water uses an antioxidant and vitamin-rich formula to remove dirt, oil and impurities without drying out the skin. And the best part: you don’t have to rinse it off! It’s a makeup remover and moisturizing facial wash all in one.
- Use an ultra-hydrating masque. Gone are the days of spending 30 minutes or more in front of your mirror now that school is back in session. Five minutes is all you need (and all you’ll usually get) when it comes to back to school morning routines. A nice ultra rich hydrating masque will leave you with a glow that will last all day long and have your skin looking ultra-hydrated. One of our top recommendations is Sonage’s Patagonia Berry Stem Cell mask; an antioxidant-rich hydrating face mask that also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This cream-textured stem cell technology will leave skin feeling invigorated, refreshed and full of hydration in just five minutes. With its easy rinse-off treatment, it’s perfect to use while you’re brushing your teeth or fixing your hair.
- Exfoliate your skin. Speed up your skincare routine by tackling exfoliating while you take your morning shower (at least 2-3x a week) if you don’t have the time in the AM. Using a powerful anti-aging, resurfacing and smoothing exfoliant will help to improve the look of aging skin and minimize pore size. We personally love Nelly De Vuyst 3 Minute Gommage. It is an exfoliating cream suitable for all skin types and removes all traces of dead cells and impurities that accumulate on the surface of the skin. While the little microbeads are working their magic on your skin, you can be washing and conditioning your hair. After about 5 minutes of the enzymes penetrating your skin, you just simply rinse off and you are good to go!
- Goodbye dark circles and hello bright eyes. Need a little extra caffeine in the morning to wake you up? Now that school is back in session, you may be waking up much earlier that you are used to and sometimes that means you have some not-so-nice dark under eye circles. Say goodbye to those dark circles by using SENTÉ Illuminé Eye Cream. It helps to improve the appearance of the skin around the eye and is clinically proven to diminish the appearance of dark circles, lines, wrinkles and puffiness around the eye area. Just a few dabs under your eyes is all you need and within minutes, your eyes are looking brighter and more radiant than before.
We know it’s hard to say goodbye to summer but with these 4 tips on how to speed up your skincare routine and keep your skin in the best shape as we enter the fall season, you shouldn’t have to worry. Say hello to beautiful skin and a brand new season, and maybe, if you’re lucky, a little more time on your hands.
