If you are someone who doesn’t bother to cleanse her face at night and wakes up with new breakouts the next morning then this lazy girl’s guide to beautiful skin is for you.
You want gorgeous, smooth skin that glows from the inside out. But when it comes to skincare, you want the easiest way out.
Either you’re busy or lazy to invest hours on applying a million different creams, lotions and serums.
I’m not lazy, I’m on power saving mode.
Raise your hand if you can relate to the above quote.
I get you. Dealing with so many products every day seems unrealistic and who has time for that?
I’ll be honest when it comes to skin care; I fall in the same lazy girl’s category. Skincare is the most time-consuming, boring thing to me.
In this post, I’m going to share simple steps for skincare that you can easily follow, even if you’re a super lazy person.
I’m not going to recommend any fancy high-end skin-care routines that include 20 steps and 50 products.
Skin-Rule : Less is more
Keep your skincare regime simple and easy to follow. Stick to basics.
Let’s move on to our skincare steps without any further delay:

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Beautiful Skin
If you’re up to know more ways to take care of your skin without spending extra time, effort, or thought, here are the top 10 skincare secrets for lazy or busy girls :
1. Wash your face twice a day
This may seem like absolutely basic advice, but beautiful skin begins with a cleanser.
No matter how lazy or tired you feel, always cleanse your face before having your beauty sleep.
We are all tempted to try the ones when it comes to cleaning products. There are millions of fancy products available out there in the market but resist your temptation and keep it simple.
Choose a budget-friendly gentle cleanser according to your skin type. You can give Cetaphil gentle cleanser a try.

2. Moisturise your skin
Apply an oil-free moisturizer after cleansing your face.
You might think, I don’t have time to cleanse and moisturise the skin after removing makeup.
Tip: If you are looking for a facial moisturiser, you should seek products that contain hyaluronic acid and ceramides.
Here comes your buddy Micellar water to rescue you.
With Micellar water, you can do all three steps at once. Just soak a cotton pad with water and wipe your face clean. No rinsing, no oily makeup removers, no moisturiser. Easy breezy!
3. Always use sunscreen
Even if you’re in hurry, make sure to wear sunscreen before you rush out the door.
There are no excuses for laziness when it comes to protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. UV exposure is the primary cause of premature skin ageing.
And, sunscreen is the most effective way to significantly slow down the ageing process.
If you spend most of the time indoors, apply sunscreen with SPF 25-30 or choose SPF 50+ for outdoors. For skin exposed on arms, legs, and feet, use it on the neck and other vulnerable areas.
4.Keep Makeup Wipes on Your Nightstand
Keep facial Wipes accessible to quickly clean up if you’re ready to sleep with makeup on.
If you have the chance to do so from the comfort of your bed, you’ll be more likely to remove your makeup before you go to sleep.
Try Himalaya Moisturising Aloe Vera Facial Wipes as these are enriched with natural aloe vera and are also cost-effective.
5.Use products that serve more than one purpose
It is important to invest in products that are truly effective and serve multi-purposes.
For example, look for products that wash and exfoliate in one go or moisturise and offer sunscreen protection. This way you can do your skincare faster and better.

6.Must-use skincare product
Serums are an essential part of any skincare routine, but they are costly too. Therefore, if you’re going to spend the money on them, it’s important that you get the most value for your money.
Dermatologists recommend using retinol serum in your skincare routine. It helps prevent fine lines, pimples, wrinkles, discolouration, and improve the texture of your skin.
Apply on damp skin, which allows it to penetrate thoroughly and give you maximum results.
7.Put your toner into a spray bottle
This hack will save you the time and hassle of using cotton pads to apply your toner. Put your toner in a spray bottle. It is easy to apply and uniformly covers your entire face. Smart move!
8.Skip Unnecessary Steps
Toners, masks, serums and separate eye creams? Isn’t it too much?
Don’t worry, you need not follow a 10-step Korean skin-care regimen to wake up beautiful.
Who has time for that? Even the basic skin routines can lead to clear and healthy skin.
You just need to wash your face, remove makeup and moisturise. You can do all of it with micellar water as I mentioned earlier.
It’s okay to exfoliate now and then but you don’t need to do it on regular basis.
Personalize your skincare routine according to your skin type.
What you can skip:
- If you’re 22 years old and don’t feel the need to start wrinkle prevention yet, don’t add a Retinol product into your routine.
- If you do not have acne, an AHA/BHA may not be as beneficial. Choose your treatments based on the actual needs of your skin.
Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Drink plenty of water every day to have glowing skin.
Keep a water bottle nearby to save the hassle of going to the fridge every time.
10.Get enough sleep
Last but not least, aim for at least 7 hours of sleep every day.
Staying up late to finish work is good but your skin needs time to replenish.
Give your skin enough rest to have plumped skin and fewer under-eye bags.
Conclusion – Follow the routine
