Every day is a challenging yet ambiguous day for a working woman. She must wake up early in the morning to make breakfast, cook meals for lunch boxes, run here and there to tick off all the tasks that are pending or need to be done in the morning. In this whole process of rushing, a woman often forgets to take care of her skin or takes out a few minutes for her skincare routine. No matter how hard your job is and how much you are earning, the dull skin will dominate your personality.
So, why not add a few minutes for your precious skin in your daily busy morning routine? In this article, we are going to discuss a few essential points that might help every working woman when it comes to adapting an easy skincare routine.
Cleanse Your Face Twice a Day, but also Twice in the Morning
It is recommended to wash the face every morning with a mild skin cleanser. Always choose a cleaner that suits your skin type. Since every working woman has different skin types, be sure to research which cleanser is best for you. Don’t just go for something cheap.
A cleanser in the morning will remove all sorts of skin impurities and dirt and oils from the skin. If you are overlooking the issue of dry skin, use a cleanser that is non-lathering and doesn’t soap up, such as a cleansing oil.
On the other, if your skin is oily go for a soap foaming cleanser. If you are bothered by acne or pimples, go for a cleanser that has an acne-fighting substance in its ingredients. Moreover, after a party or when you have applied makeup on your face, always thoroughly wash your face with a cleanser and remove the makeup with it; otherwise, your skin will look dull and tired the next day.
Make use of toners
Sometimes a cleanser fails to remove dirt and other impurities from the skin. In such a case an alcohol-free toner does the job. Buy a good quality toner or the one recommended by your beautician. Take a cotton pad, spill a bit of toner on it, and rub the cotton over your face. You will see many dark and dirt-filled areas being removed from your skin once you wash it with warm water. Toner also helps to shrink the extent of pores on the skin, which in return reduces the areas prone to acne. So, if you feel that your cleanser is not doing a good job, start using the right toner and use it at night before you head to bed to see if that helps.
A good moisturizer
A good moisturizer once in the morning and later at night can be your best friend. Intended for busy women, a moisturizer with a an SPF would work well.
Once you wash your face in the morning the next thing before you start doing makeup is you hydrate your skin with a creamy and skin suited moisturizer that may even act as a good primer. For dry or scaly skin, a good moisturizer with cocoa butter is recommended. For oily skin go for something lighter and more breathable like a gel.
In the morning apart from a moisturizer, every busy woman needs an effective sunscreen. The sunscreen protects the skin from harsh, UV sun rays. But a good moisturizer that has the potential of being a great serum, hydrating cream, an SPF and a primer can do wonders and save space in your makeup bag. CC creams are great options.
Exfoliate your skin
A woman who spends the entire morning running outside dealing with challenging situations may very little time to look after her skin. Air pollution is at its peak right now and is destroying our skin every day. Therefore at least once a week at night before bed, women must exfoliate their skin with a good scrub. It will remove the hidden dirt particles from the skin and will save the skin from becoming dull.
Night Cream as a Saver
That’s right! A night cream at night will leave a glowing and perfect canvas for the morning. Consider buying a night cream that has the letters CC or BB on it. Such night creams tend to repair the skin cells. Once the skin cells are fixed overnight, you will notice a significant change in your skin. Your skin will be freckle-free and will not look dull or tired.
There are plenty of economical night creams available that serve the sole purpose of repairing the skin cells. All you need to do is to take care of your skin and apply these tips to your skin to add shine and glow.
Keep Facial Wipes and Facial Sprays Handy
Working all day long, a woman has to deal with sweat and oil no matter what type of skin you have. So,sometimes a cakey skin situation can occur. Keeping facial wipes handy to quickly wipe your face down is always a great idea to help with dirt and oil. If wipes are not available, go for facial sprays that serve the same purpose. You can spray it over your face to keep your skin and makeup intact.
Hydrating Face Mask
While you are busy making breakfast, put a hydrating face mask over your face and then do all the daily chores. A face mask will also act as a natural cleanser and toner. It will give your skin a fresh look early in the morning.
