Many of us lead a highly fast-paced life so it’s not always that we can spare the time necessary to perform all the procedures of a thorough beauty routine. Mornings are the most difficult in this regard and sometimes we have no choice but to sacrifice some of the skincare “must do’s” in order to get to work in time.

However, there is a way to make sure your skin doesn’t suffer because of this. Today we will offer some of our favorite tips that will allow you to speed up your beauty routine.

  1. Arrange your skincare products efficiently.
    GO over every step of your beauty routine in your mind in the evening and place every product you will need so it would be within easy reach come morning. Note that you will need to include makeup in this arrangement as well as supplementary tools, such as cotton pads, brushes, combs, etc.
  2. Stock up on multitasking products.
    Perfection Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 30 from PureLx can replace three products in one go, a moisturizer, foundation, and sunscreen. This is only one example of a skincare product that can cut down several steps from your beauty routine in a single application. If you are pressed for time in the mornings, be sure to have these products on hand. You can carry out a multi-step skincare on weekends and do the “speed up” version of it during workdays.

  3. Simplify the makeup removal procedure.
    It’s not only in the mornings that we might be short on time. If you are running late and need to remove and reapply your makeup fast, you can easily cleanse your face with a water-soluble cleanser and a soft washcloth. Any traces of makeup that remain can be cleaned off with a bit of some specialized remover. Using a washcloth will replicate the effect of a gentle scrub making your skin soft and glowing with beauty.
  4. Skip all the steps but the essentials.
    If the time is really short, you can skip a few of your daily beauty routine steps. However, don’t allow this to turn into a habit as consistency is imperative for skincare. Not taking good care of your skin may result in premature aging, acne, and a variety of other problems that are much more difficult to treat than to prevent. Beauty routine steps that must not be skipped are:
    - Cleansing
    - Toning
    - Moisturizing
    - Sunscreen
  5. Learn some makeup tricks.
    Applying perfect makeup at home can be tricky, and this task will only get harder if you don’t have enough time to do it properly. Look up specialized video tutorials where professionals advise the most time-efficient makeup routines. Remember that having beautiful healthy skin will allow you to minimize the use of makeup products as covering blemishes and sculpting your face are the most time-consuming steps of the process. Therefore, it pays to invest in high-quality skincare products and use them regularly as this way, you will get rid of all imperfections naturally. With your skin healthy, you will only need a light foundation, a bit of blush, some eyeliner with mascara, and a touch of lipstick to look stunning. Practice for a bit and you will learn to apply all these products perfectly in under five minutes.
