How To Do Less For Better Skin

When it comes to beauty and skincare, I find that I prefer to do less, yet glow more. I know, it seems essentially crazy. But think about it, what if you had a few key products that did the work of 10?

It would save you so much time and space in the long run. After all, they do say a little goes a long way, right? No matter your skin type, cutting down on products while achieving your skincare goals is totally possible. It’s really about having a routine that relies on multitasking products that work for you.


The basic building block for any routine is the cleanser. Forget using three different cleansers, you need a multi-cleanser that treats your skin issues while also cleaning your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture.

Oh yes, primer is a major part of skincare! It’s the first thing that touches your face before your makeup. Prime oils are the best right now because they’re light and pack a huge punch for various types of skin. Even those with oily skin can benefit from a fantastic primer oil. Just be sure to let it sit for a minute before applying anything over it. Or wear it alone.
