A thorough and considered skincare regime is vital, but can be hard to squeeze into busy schedules. Achieve a glowing complexion in minutes with these simple changes.
Self-care – carving out time to treat yourself, in order to maintain and improve your mental health – is big news this year. At The White Company, we are huge advocates of indulging in simple pleasures, making the most of life’s little moments, and enjoying the very best products you can afford, every day – not just on special occasions.
One of our favourite ways to treat ourselves, the benefits of establishing a solid skincare routine are twofold: not only will you start to see a visible improvement in your skin, but it ensures you dedicate time that’s purely your own, to enjoy every single day.
Here are our top tips to make your routine effortless to stick to – courtesy of our new six-piece collaboration with DECIEM – The Abnormal Beauty Company.
Organise your products (and keep them close by)
The simplest way to speed up your skincare routine is to keep your products beautifully organised, in your bathroom or on your bedside table. Arrange everything you use on a daily basis in the order you apply them, and consider separating products into morning and evening routines. Our White Lacquer Dressing Table Trays will minimise clutter and add a stylish touch to your bedroom, too.
Make a time (and stick to it)
We recommend doing your skincare routine at the same time, every single day – late nights and parties permitting, of course. On weeknights, try cleansing as soon as you get home –before dinner and chores take over; you’re far less likely to do it properly once evening fatigue sets in.
Consider a ‘shower cleanse’
Maximise the productivity of your morning shower by using the time to do the first (and most important) part of your skincare routine – cleansing. Our Super Balm emulsifies upon massage for a thorough, yet gentle, cleanse; just ensure that your shower temperature is lukewarm for this step, as very hot water can strip skin of its natural oils.
“The Super Balm does a good job for me in removing my durable eye make-up very gently – something that some brands don’t manage.”
Choose products that multitask
A carefully edited skincare collection is key, to avoid overloading skin with unnecessary (and potentially irritating) ingredients. Instead of looking to quick-fix, ‘Jack-of-all-trades’ products, try formulations that serve a dual purpose, like our Advanced Hydration moisturiser, which perfectly primes skin for makeup as well as adding an indulgent moisture boost.
