LifestyleWhat’s Your 5-Minute Skincare Regime?

Winter’s gone by and as we prepare for sunnier skies, it’s also important to change your skincare routine. While winter meant more dry and flaky skin that called for intense moisturization, you will want to prep your skin for the summer with a less rigid routine.

We’ve got a quick 5-minute skincare routine with all the right products that will definitely help you transition from winter to spring while keeping your skin feeling soft, supple, and glowing fresh!

1. Cleanse adequately

The primary step in almost every skincare routine is the skin cleanser. It goes without saying that it is important to keep the surface level clean from impurities and grime that you may accumulate during your day. Remember to choose a cleanser that is best suitable for your skin type and incorporate this step into your daily skincare regime.

2. Bye-bye pores

Cleansing your skin can sometimes also strip the surface layer of moisture and leave your pores open. That’s where a toner comes in! Choose a toner that will help you keep your skin feeling replenished and ready for your moisturizer. The best toners come with refreshing properties to purify your skin and tighten your pores.

3. Hydrate your skin

Moisturizing your skin is an important part of your routine, irrespective of the climate around you. While the winter season makes your skin more susceptible to chapping, drying, and dullness, the spring-summer season can cause the skin to become sticky. You can choose a lighter moisturizer that offers controlled hydration, and one that contains the power of natural ingredients. 

4. Shoutout for ‘Sunscreen’

No matter what the weather, your skincare routine is never complete without the magical touch of sunscreen. You could opt for a gel-based sunscreen that you can dab on after your moisturizer to protect your skin from any harmful UV rays. Remember to look for a formula that is ideal for your skin type and doesn’t look too greasy. 

5. Some extra skincare

Your skin deserves occasional pampering and that’s where we recommend incorporating a few extra products into your skincare routine. You could try face serums that will help revitalize your skin and restore its natural radiance. Skin serums gently hydrate your skin and go well with your moisturizer to keep your skin feeling smooth and supple. You could also use an effective overnight cream that will do so many wonders for your skin so that you wake up each morning feeling refreshed.

So there you have it! Here are our top picks for a quick 5-minute skincare routine that will leave your skin feeling healthy, clean, and soft. Go ahead and begin incorporating these tips into your regime and you’ll be thanking us later!
