Every woman wants flawless skin. However, some believe they don’t have the time to dedicate to a proper skincare routine. Instead, they may rely on using an abundance of makeup to cover up problem areas. Of course, this is just a “band aid” that doesn’t address underlying skin concerns.
The good news is that achieving beautiful skin doesn’t have to take forever. As a matter of fact, it can take only minutes—ten to be exact. Five minutes at night and five minutes in the morning is all the time you need. So get your stopwatch ready and be prepared to marvel at your skin, because we’re about to tell you how you can have the perfect skincare routine in just 10 minutes a day.
Ready, set, go!
Cleanse and Exfoliate: 1 Minute
Start your routine off by cleansing and exfoliating your skin. Luckily, most cleansers will both clean and exfoliate, thus eliminating an entire step. For acne prone skin, use the Clear Cell salicylic gel cleanser to eliminate excess oil and gently exfoliate dead skin cells. For dull and aging skin, you’ll want to use the Ageless total facial cleanser that uses glycolic acid to exfoliate, along with pH balancing elements to tone. Whichever cleanser you decide to use, just be sure to choose one that is specific to your skin type and gently massage it in for a full minute.
Treat: 3 minutes
Next, you will apply a treatment(s) specific to your skin concern and allow time for the product to penetrate the skin before proceeding. For acne prone skin, you can use the Clear Cell salicylic clarifying tonic, a skin clarifier designed to remove excess oil and bacteria, while using natural elements to reduce inflammation. For aging or sun-damaged skin, apply the Ageless total anti-aging serum with vectorize-technology to smooth out fine lines while illuminating the skin. There is also the Ageless total pure hyaluronic filler, which will plump and fill those fine lines and wrinkles. Just remember, IMAGE products are designed to work together, so don’t be afraid to use more than one treatment.
Moisturize and Protect: 1 minutes
Whether you are off to work, or getting ready to hit the sheets, you’ll want to make sure your face is moisturized. In the morning, use the Prevention + daily matte moisturizer SPF 32 as a means to not only moisturize and protect your skin, but also as an excellent primer before makeup application. At night, use the Ageless total repair crème, which exfoliates and repairs while you sleep. Be sure to fully rub in the moisturizer, and if you’re fast, then you may just have a few seconds to spare.
Get into the habit of following the above steps each day — both once in the morning and once in the evening (10 minutes total) — for a solid and effective skincare routine.
