It’s National Lazy Day and to celebrate, we’re sharing four of our favorite lazy girl skincare products! If you’re looking to spend less time fussing with your routine and more time in your pajamas, then it might be time to try something new.
A skincare mask can offer an array of benefits, but let’s face it--- lazy girls don’t want to spend much time by the sink. If this sounds like you, then you might want to consider taking part in one of the biggest skincare trends on Instagram right now: sheet masking. They won’t cleanse or exfoliate like the many traditional masks we’re used to seeing, but sheet masks give your skin much-needed nutrients. Since it’s summer, our go-to of the moment is Talika’s BioEnzyme After Sun Sheet Mask. This soothing mask contains Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen, which plumps and re-hydrates sun-parched, dehydrated skin. Water-harnessing sugar stimulates the regeneration of the skin’s barrier in a natural way, while offering additional hydration. Chamomile, Arnica, Gentian and Milfoil extracts offer antioxidant protection and soothing comfort. After cleansing, simply press the mask onto the contours of your face to set it. Watch an episode of your favorite show or take a nap while it goes to work. After 15-30 minutes, peel it off, press the excess residue into your skin and you’re all set!
We get it, mornings are tough and that snooze button is just too easy to press when your head is resting comfortably on a fluffy, feather-filled pillow. If you live for those extra 10 minutes of sleep every morning, then get more zzz’s by cutting down your beauty routine with Dermalogica’s Skin Perfect Primer. This multitasking primer can be used as your first step before foundation or can be worn alone to enhance the appearance of the skin. Velvety silicones and Soy Protein smooth out imperfections for a filter-like finish. A powerful peptide and White Tea Polyphenols tighten and firm while offering antioxidant protection. For lazy girls who can’t bother with foundation, this primer gives a subtle tint derived from natural minerals. Worn alone, skin is left looking radiant and healthy. An added bonus to this amazing primer? It has an SPF 30 to protect your skin from the sun.
When you’re a lazy girl, refreshing your makeup midday can feel like an absolute chore! Just getting makeup on in the morning is work enough as it is. On the days when you simply can’t muster up the energy to reach for your makeup bag during lunch hour, just grab Ultraluxe’s Aromasol Mist and happily spritz away! An alcohol-free formula, this multipurpose toner balances and tones the skin, while prepping it for treatments and moisturizers. You can also use it to set your makeup or refresh your face any time of the day. Infused with Geranium, Rosewood and Palma Rosa, you’ll benefit from antioxidant protection. Dead Sea Minerals absorb excess oils, so if you have oily skin, you’ll love this spray (goodbye midday shine)!
Keeping your skin moisturized and bright during the summer can be tough if you spend too much time by the pool. If you’re the quintessential lazy girl, the thought of using serums and treatments can be one step too much for your routine. To keep your skin healthy and hydrated year-long, you’ll want to have a great cleanser to start your day and end your day with. We love Murad’s Essential C Cleanser to neutralize and fight free radical damage during summer and year-round. Vitamins A, C and E keep your skin looking youthful and bright while Phospholipids keep your skin hydrated and soft.
