Perfect Skin In 5 Minutes

No time to spare for your skincare routine? Here are some tips to show you how to make every second count.

Take two minutes.... to double cleanse

This is essential to remove every trace of dirt from your skin. First, wet skin with warm water, gently massage in your cleanser, then wash off to remove superficial dirt and make up. Next, apply more cleanser, dampen a muslin cloth with warm water, place over your face and take a few deep breaths to relax. Then buff your face in circular motions- this will help decongest your T-zone.

Take 30 seconds...to tone up

a toner or a splash of cold water will constrict capillaries to reduce redness, de-puff and tighten skin.

Take one minute...to moisturise

To get the most out of your moisturiser, take time to really work it into the skin. Massage will help stimulate circulation, drain fluids(so easing puffiness) and deliver the nutrients from the cream deep into the skin. Using a firm motion, start from your nose and push outwards and up towards your hairline, moving gradually down your face.

Take 90 seconds...to even out

It is important to let your moisturiser sink in before applying make up, so you get an even surface. Get into the routine of brushing your teeth or putting your rollers in while  you're waiting.
