You have heard about how important it is to have a skin care routine that you follow every day. It can mean the difference for being mistaken for being 10 years younger then you are or someone asking if you are feeling well. The problem is that most people will say that they do not have the time to properly to maintain their face. This is a very common fear to have of you have ever gone to a beauty counter in a department store and been told that you need these 12 items to look beautiful.

I have good news for you. Beauty and looking younger does not have to be complicated. You can easily have a 5 minute skin care routine that you will be able to follow in the morning and in the evening. The reason that you need to do it twice a day is to clean off all of the dirt and debris that builds up over time to make you look like you have aged years over the past couple of hours. With that being said, lets get to this easy 5 minute skin care routine.


Step One


Clean your face well with a foaming cleanser. You will want to use a product that is formulated for your skin type. Everything that you do in a skin care routine needs to be tailored to the type of skin you have. If you have dry skin and you use oil control products you will just get drier. This is not the look that we are going for. It is a good idea to invest in 2 bottles of cleanser. You can place one on your bathroom sink and the other in the shower. This will make cleaning a breeze.


Step Two

Completely dry off your face with a gently patting motion. You need to have dry skin to be able to move onto the next step in the skin care routine. If you do not, the next product that you put on your face will get watered down and will not be effective. You spend your hard earned money on your products. The last thing that you want is for them not to work.


Step Three


If you have any anti aging concerns, now is the time to address them. Choose one product that you like and apply it. Usually this is done by placing a small amount in the palm of your hand and spreading it over your face. Read the instructions on the product that you have purchased to make sure that you are following the recommended application procedure.


Step Four


Apply a good moisturizer that has an SPF of 15 in it. A good skin care routine will take into account protecting your skin from the sun. If you are applying in the evening you can choose a moisturizer without an SPF in it. You can also use the same product for both morning and evening with SPF. It is up to you about what is easier for you.


Step Five


Dot an eye cream under the eye area. You will choose one based on the problem areas that you want to cover with your cream. This may include fine lines and wrinkles or you may have worries about dark circles and puffiness. Tap the product into the skin with the ring finger. You want to make sure that you keep the product out of your eyes in this step of your skin care routine.
