Want great skin? Believe it or not, you don't have to spend hours and money on a long, complicated routine to get it! Read on for tips on making your face glow with next-to-no time or effort:
Speed Clean The most effective cleansing is often the simplest. Choose a foaming cleanser formulated to both remove makeup and clean skin, eliminating the need for a separate makeup remover. Simply dampen skin, lather up once, and rinse. Or stock up on facial cleansing towelettes or pillows, like Oil of Olay Daily Facials ($6.99 for 30), which get the job done even quicker.
Skip Toner Unless your skin is excessively oily or you're treating an acne condition, you can skip a toner, as your cleanser will have already removed all makeup and oil.
Combine Treatments Slathering on an anti-aging product plus a moisturizer plus a sunscreen is too complicated. These days, cosmetics companies such as Olay and Neutrogena make anti-aging retinol products that also condition skin and protect from the sun. Bonus tip: You can use your daytime, SPF anti-aging product at night, too, eliminating the need for a second product.
See a dermatologist. True, this step does take more time and cost more money than simply creating a routine on your own, but seeing a skin doctor can have greater longterm benefits. That's because a dermatologist can prescribe fast-acting, strong products that deliver results more quickly and to a greater degree than over the counter products.
