Some of us have a busy lifestyle juggling work, personal life and family life. We often put others’ needs before us and neglect even the very basic such as taking care of our skin. What is a good cleanser I should use? What is the best serum? Do I put moisturizer first or sunscreen? Which one is a good brand?  

You won’t have time to think about what products to use or what skincare process to follow when you have a busy life.  A simple skincare routine that can help to take care of your skin when you are in a hurry is what you need. Let’s check out what are the important steps for a busy woman

1. Cleansing 

Face cleansing is first basic step that you shouldn’t skip. This process can be effective when you know what skin type you belong to. Do you have oily skin? Combination skin? Finding out if you have dry or oily skin will help you to do what your skin needs and the best way to take care of it. A non-forming moisturizing cleanser is good for dry skin. Cleansing oil is ideal for sensitive skin. Women who have oily skin can benefit from using a foaming cleanser. Oil-based cleansers are suitable for acne-prone skin. Pat your face gently with a towel after you have washed and rinsed it.

2. Toning

The next important step is using toner and it is a not-to-be-missed step for those with oily skin. Dab the face with a toner-filled cotton pad. This will help to shrink the pores. When you do this process, it will prevent pimples and acne on the face because open pores can cause breakouts. Remember to choose alcohol-free toner when you are shopping for one.

3. Applying Moisturizer

Putting moisturizer on your face when it is still damp is a must. Moisturizers can keep your face hydrated and fresh. Some women prefer to skip this part because have oily skin because the moisturizer will make their skin more oily. This is incorrect and may backfire.  The skin will produce more oil when it does not have the oil it needs.  This will cause breakouts. So the main intention for moisturizing the skin daily is to maintain the skin’s barrier and keep it balanced.

4. Put On Sunscreen

Applying sunscreen is also an important skincare process that helps to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Put the sunscreen again after a few hours especially when you are spending a lot of time outdoors throughout the day. Want to know a good trick that can save you time? Find a moisturizer that comes with built-in sunscreen like BB cream to shorten your skincare process.

Don’t forget to get enough sleep because sleeping too little can cause puffy eyes. Drinking lots of water and also eating a balance diet will give you glowy skin.
