The Lazy Girl's Guide to Taking Care of Your Skin The Lazy Girl's Guide to Taking Care of Your Skin The Lazy Girl's Guide to Taking Care of Your Skin

When your alarm starts ringing in the morning, it’s probably a race against time to get ready. From choosing your outfit (because you never end up wearing the one you chose the night before) to washing your hair, it just doesn’t seem like there’s enough time in the day to worry about your skin, does it? But even if you’re feeling tired and lazy, it’s still important to take care of your complexion. That doesn’t mean you have to spend tons of timing going through a 10-step routine. Keep things simple with these basic tips and tricks—listen up, lazy girls!

1. Keep Your Routine Nice and Simple

You don’t need a zillion products and hours to get flawless-looking skin. Just keep things simple and to stick to the essentials. For example, if you’re in a time crunch in the morning, follow this easy three-step process that covers the basics: cleanse with a face wash, moisturize, and apply broad-spectrum SPF. SPF is a skin care must-have because exposing your skin to the sun sans protection can lead to damage. Yikes. If you want to cut your morning skin care process down to just two steps, reach for a moisturizer with SPF, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30.

2. Stock Up on Multitasking Products

Save time and free up a ton of space in your medicine cabinet by using multitasking beauty products. These products can help you pare down two steps in your skin care routine into one, making them a great option for the girl on the go—or one who’s too tired after a long day to spend much time on her skin. One multitasking product worth trying? Micellar water! This French-favorite cleanser can stand in for your cleanser and makeup remover. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, while the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes. Saturate a cotton pad with micellar water, then wipe it across your face. Yep—it’s as easy as that!

3. Stay Organized

Growing up, chances are your parents told you time and time again to keep your room in order—and the same idea holds true for your beauty product stash. Speed up your daily skin care routine by staying organized and making sure your most frequently used products are in an easy-to-reach spot. Do you keep your skin care products in the medicine cabinet? Move the ones you use regularly to the front where they’re easier to grab if you’re in a rush, and move ones you use less often to the back. It’s worth taking a few minutes to go through all of your products so that you can organize them according to what your skin care essentials are. That way, you won't have to spend 20 minutes rifling through your cabinet trying to find certain products the next time you need to get ready.

4. Stash Towelettes or Micellar Water Near Your Bed

Ahhh…you change into your jammies, hop under the covers, and turn on the TV to catch up on your favorite show. The only thing is, you haven’t taken your makeup off yet. Too comfortable to drag yourself out of bed? No problem! Keep a no-rinse product, such makeup removing towelettes or micellar water, on your nightstand so that you can easily take off your makeup before you fall asleep. Try the L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ Makeup Removing Towelettes, which gently cleanse and remove all traces of makeup—even waterproof mascara. It’s super-important to remove your makeup before bed, since it can mix with the dirt and oil on your face while you sleep, which can lead to clogged pores (and clogged pores can lead to breakouts). The fact that you can take off your makeup from the comfort of your own bed? We have a feeling you’ll never skip out on this crucial skin care step again.
