A Lazy Girl’s Nightly Skincare Routine

skinskin

Okay, okay… I’ll admit it. When it comes to skincare, particularly in the evenings, I am incredibly lazy. Going from a 9-5 job to an evening job, then finally going home to have a late dinner, clean up the house, and prep for the next morning, the very last thing I want to do is spend 15+ minutes using ten different products on my face. I’m sure there are tons of you who can relate!

But skincare is really important to me! You get one face and you wear it everywhere you go for your entire life, so it only makes sense to take care of it, right? Right. So when it comes to skincare products, I’m picky. I need products that serve more than one purpose because well… I’m lazy and using one product that only benefits my skin in one way just sounds like a waste of time. Leave it to your grade A lazy girl to come up with a foolproof way to take good care of your skin without exerting too much energy at the end of a long day.

 

Step 1: Remove Makeup – Rodan + Fields Redefine Eye Cloths

Some days I hardly wear any makeup and other days, I go full-on glam. Either way, I can count on these babies to get the job done with no fuss. One cloth removes all my makeup, even on my most cake-faced days (waterproof mascara and all!). I’ve tried lots of other makeup removing cloths in the past and some left a sticky, stinky film on my skin which made me feel like I had to rinse my face before bed after using them (totally defeats the purpose in my opinion), but these aren’t like that! Looooove these guys! The best part about these is that they have anti-aging peptides in them. So even though I’m being lazy, I’m actually doing double duty!

Step 2: Moisturize – Rodan + Fields Redefine Overnight Restorative Cream

Okay, first of all, this stuff smells soooo nice and clean which is exactly the kind of thing I want going on my face right before I hit the hay. A little bit goes a long way, which is awesome for your wallet’s sake. This moisturizer goes on nice and smooth and it feels really hydrating right away. When I wake up in the morning, it’s fully absorbed into my skin and my skin looks fresh and hydrated. Even after I wash my face in the A.M., the moisture doesn’t go away. This cream has a ton of anti-aging ingredients in it, so you’ll probably notice that fine lines and wrinkles will start to disappear as you use this stuff. My forehead wrinkles are much less defined than they were before I started using the R+F Redefine products and I couldn’t be happier about that!

Step 3: Bye, Bye, Bags! – Rodan + Fields Multi-Function Eye Cream (a.k.a. Eye Crack)

Pretty sure I prayed to thank God for this incredible invention after I first used it. Yes, you will be addicted to using this stuff once you try it out, just take my word for it. This is one of the first skincare products I ever tried that gave me actual visual results. Because let’s face it, not only am I interested in preserving my skin, but I have a few things I’d like to improve about my skin and well, this eye cream does just that. Say goodbye to under-eye bags, dark circles, and crow’s feet. Working two jobs and running an at-home business, sleep is usually the last think on my mind throughout the week. I used to hate when people would look at me and say “Wow, you look exhausted” or “Are you feeling ok? You don’t look so good.” Thanks to this stuff, my exhaustion doesn’t show on my face anymore. (Well, at least not through my eyes. I have yet to find a skincare product that takes care of my sleep deprived RBF). I use this at night and in the morning because it’s hydrating and moisturizing enough for nighttime repair, but it’s not heavy or greasy, so I’m able to apply my makeup right over it in the morning without it causing any break-up or patchiness in my foundation, concealer, powder, etc. Oh, and did I mention that this product also has anti-aging ingredients? Hallelujah!

And that’s it! Skincare complete. Yes, just 3 steps and I’m done for the night.

This entire routine takes about 4 minutes, 5 tops if I have a ton of makeup to remove that day. Four minutes to remove my makeup, moisturize, prevent dark circles and bags under my eyes, AND fight the signs of aging… I can handle that even on my laziest nights.

 

Some things I should mention:

  • I do this routine 4-5 nights a week. The rest of the time, I go through a full regime of washing my face, then using toner, treatment, and moisturizer.
  • My skin is normal to combination and it’s not particularly problematic or sensitive.
  • I am a consultant for Rodan + Fields. However, even if I wasn’t, I would use these products because I have personally had great results while using them and I stand behind them 100%.
  • This post is in no way sponsored by or affiliated with Rodan + Fields. These are the products I personally use with an honest account of what I like about them and what they’ve done for my skin.
  • Rodan + Fields products can only be purchased through a consultant, so if you’re interested in trying these products or seeing what other products are available, please send me an email at emcala08@gmail.com.
