5 Ways to Save Time in the Morning
Cut Nonessential Beauty Items From Your Routine
First tip: You don’t need to use a toner. Ever. Toners help moisturizer seep into your skin, but leaving a little water on
your face after washing facilitates absorption equally well. Also, skip the eye cream. These treatments are wonderful to use
at night, when skin is repairing itself (and when there’s no sunlight around to break down the eye cream’s active ingredients).
But it’s smarter and quicker to just use your face lotion around your eyes during the day. Better yet, apply one with SPF
to save more time by avoiding that additional sunscreen step (see The Best Face Moisturizers with SPF.)
Time saved: 15 minutes each week.
A thing of beauty should be a joy forever—or at least until five o’clock. Here’s how to stretch the life of your makeup, hair, manicure, perfume—and more.
