It’s fair to say that beauty regimes are a spectrum, with some people spending hours and hours on their routines while others prefer to get up and go with minimal effort. We’ve written many times about the optimal skin routines and all the things that you should be doing, but this time we thought we’d give a nod to the low-maintenance sisterhood and take a look at the bare minimum that you should be doing to keep your skin ticking over nicely, and the products that can help you do this:
If you’re more of a ‘scrub in the shower’ than a full-on purveyor of the cleanse-tone-moisturise technique, then a facial wash that you can use in the shower is what you need. Elemis Gentle Foaming Facial Wash just needs to be rubbed onto dry skin and then rubbed over with water to create a foam, then can simply be rinsed off with water. No mess, no fuss, no need for special cloths!
If your skin needs a little more than just a cleanse in the morning, but you don’t want to spend ages (or fortunes) on different products, then Decleor Hydra-Radiance Cleansing Mousse would be a good investment for you. It cleanses the skin, as well as plumping and firming, and even contains hyaluronic acid to give your skin a wash of moisture that will last all day.
One Bottle to Rule Them All
One of our very favourite products is Elemis Tea Tree S.O.S. Spray, purely because it has SO many uses, making it the best friend to all you low maintenance gals out there. It has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, so it can be used in lieu of a spot treatment, as a deodorant, a foot spray, to soothe insect bites, after waxing, for cleansing your body brush, and even to clean your trainers if they’re whiffy!
It’s rare to find a product which can be used on your skin, nails and your hair, but Decleor Aroma Nutrition Satin Softening Dry Oil is one such product. It’s a dry oil, which means it nourishes and moisturises without leaving you feeling greasy and leaves your body and face feeling softer and more comfortable, your hair nourished and looking shiny. It’s enriched with frankincense essential oil, camellia, rose and sweet almond oils, giving a wonderfully subtle and feminine fragrance.
