Best Way to Save Time on Skin and Body Care

To achieve a smooth, silky skin with minimum effort, incorporate exfoliation into your daily ablutions by using a dual-purpose shower gel and exfoliant, such as Revlon’s Dry Skin Relief Intensive Exfoliating Shower Gel; or try a conditioning shower gel, such as Oil of Ulay’s Moisturising Body Wash, Johnson’s PH 5.5 2-in-1 Shower Gel and Body Moisturiser or St Ives’ Formula Cocoa Butter Moisturising Body Wash. While your deodorant is drying, a faster alternative to body cream is a spray-on lotion like Lancome’s Resource Drenching Body Spray or Palmer’s Aloe Vera Formula Body Spray.

Whether you wax or shave, this beauty headache can be cut out completely by having excess hair permanently removed by laser or electrolysis.

If the drying time puts you off fake tan, experiment with one of the fast-drying self-tans in spray form, such as Ecotan’s Self Tan and La Prairie’s Spray Self Tan. To cut corners on your body- and handcare, as well as your skincare, use all-encompassing, multi­purpose creams and lotions that can be used on your face, body, hands, any dry patches, cuticles and feet; some of these include L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Cold Cream and Nivea’s All Soft Intensive Moisturising Cream for both body and face.

Skincare short cuts

Keep your skincare regime pared down by choosing a product that cleanses and tones in one step: try Elizabeth Arden’s 2-in-1 Cleanser and Toner, Vichy’s One-step Cleanse, RoC’s 2-in-1 Cleanser and Freshener for Face and Eyes or Synergie’s Refreshing 2-in-1 Gentle Cleanser and Toner. Alternatively, perform your own simultaneous cleanse and tone by removing cleanser with a muslin cloth, then wetting the cloth and patting it onto your face.

No time to hang around for twenty minutes while your face mask works? How about a flash balm or fast working mask, such as No 7′s 3 Minute Energising Mask, Clarins’ Beauty Flash Balm, Biore’s sixty-second Self-Heating Mask or Decleor’s Instant Beauty Booster? For a nourishing boost, apply a moisturising mask or treatment before you go to bed, such as Guerlain’s Issima Midnight Secret or La Formule’s Night Shift. No low-maintenance beauty will have time for a full facial workout, but you can still keep some muscles taut by chewing gum (sugar-free, please!).
