It’s not the number of steps that make a skincare routine worth it. For powerful women, who are busy in their own right, their secret is making the most of each product with the limited time they have for skincare. If you have a lot on your plate but you want to keep your skin looking good, this power skincare routine is just right for you.
Mastering the facial foam and conditioner combo
Showering is not idle time for powerful women. This is the time for you to think of the day ahead of you–and it’s also the perfect time to get some skincare done while waiting for your conditioner to set in. As you leave your conditioner in for a minute or five, use this idle time to rinse your face using your favorite facial foam or exfoliating scrub. Rinse your hair first so that your pores will not be clogged by the residue.
Taking time for Netflix and sheet masks
Buying a face mask online is one of the power moves of successful women. Why? Because this product does wonders for your skin, and you don’t even need to do anything other than put it on. A sheet mask infused with nutrients and essences can give your skin a more youthful glow, which you can notice immediately. The best part is both your hands will be free to make your to-do list for the next day, or you can just sit back and relax as you catch up on your favorite Netflix show before bed. Even powerful women need their Mad Men binge, after all.
Using the same product to prime and fix
A face primer is one of the most important parts of your skincare routine if you’re a career woman. It helps your makeup stay on so that you can go the whole day without worrying about touch-ups. But when your day turns into night and you need to go to a dinner meeting, you can still use the same product to fix any smudges or problems in your makeup. Any successful woman knows that a beautifully done makeup is part of your arsenal, and you don’t want any chink in your armor, right?
Knowing how to keep the lipstick from feathering
Anyone can apply red lipstick on their pouter and be on their way. But for a successful career woman, it’s not enough that you have a coat of red lipstick. You want it to look perfect, because you draw power from all the compliments you get because of your scene-stealing lips. How do you keep your lipstick from feathering, you ask? The secret is in the lipliner. If your favorite makeup brand offers the same shade of lipstick in lipliner form, get it. Use it to line your lips so that you can get the full shape you want, and you can prevent the lipstick from feathering out.
Being powerful does not mean you have to sacrifice your good looks because you’re too busy conquering the world. Let your powerful skincare routine take you up the top of the career ladder.
