The summer holidays can be both a blessing and a curse; it’s great to be able to spend more time with your kids but it can also mean that things are busier than ever, between activities and day trips, especially if you also work. Getting the holidays to go without a hitch can often mean making time-compromises, and like most women, time to ourselves is usually the first thing to be sacrificed, meaning that our beauty regime often suffers. We thought we’d take a look at five products which will save you time but still allow you to keep your skin in tip-top shape, to help you survive the six-weeks!
If you don’t have time for a full face of make before you rush to your next holiday club, but are feeling the effects of stress or hormones, then this concealer from Dermalogica is a must-have in your make up bag. As well as giving you a good level of coverage for spots and blemishes, it contains bacteria-fighting ingredients and anti-inflammatories which will kill the root cause of the spot and actively reduce any swelling or redness.
One thing you don’t want to neglect is your moisturiser as it can mean your skin dries out and looks dull, which can be difficult to revive. Opting for this rich cream moisturiser from Decleor will give your skin a much needed layer of moisture but only needs to be applied once a day which could potentially save you a few minutes at the beginning or end of every day (time which can be spent working out how to stop the kids from bickering!)
This cloth from Dermalogica is one of our absolute favourite time saving products as it allows you to exfoliate your skin really effectively whilst washing in the bath or shower, meaning you don’t have to go over your skin twice or more to get rid of dull, dry skin. It also means that any moisturiser you apply will not only soak in more quickly (let’s face it, waiting for moisturiser to soak in is a chore in itself!), it will also allow it to be more effective as it’s not being soaked up by essentially dead skin cells.
Three-in-one is music to our ears when we’re trying to find products which save us time and this mousse from Decleor is the perfect example. Instead of needing a cleanser, exfoliator AND moisturiser, this wonderful product does it all in one. This means that in just a minute or two, you can have a beautiful, glowing complexion and healthy-looking skin without needing a cupboard full of potions!
If you absolutely must use an all over body cream every day then you’ll want one which doesn’t require a whole load of time to soak in before you can get dressed. This body hydrating cream from Dermalogica is a non-greasy formula which means that it’s absorbed into the skin almost immediately and you can get dressed more or less straight away.
