I know the irony here, I’m the co-founder of a skincare company that rarely wants to wash her face, stresses out when having to add in a new product to her routine, and would prefer to do just the bare minimum when it comes to a skincare routine. Being stuck at home, I don’t have the luxury of saying “I don’t have time for a complete skincare routine.” The reality is, I do - I just don’t care about making things more complicated, so I adhere to the whims of how I feel that day.
I will note this - I’ve washed my face and moisturized (almost) every night since I was probably 14. We’ve got more than a decade of squeaky clean, moisturized goodness on this mug, so shout to my mom for reinforcing this. It wasn’t until I started working in the beauty industry that I got passionate about skincare and all the things that it could do for us and affordable prices.
With that being said, how do you cut down your routine, while getting your skin all the things that it needs? Don’t let them guilt you into a ten-step routine unless that’s what you want.
