There are many things we would like to do differently to make our lives easier, and ringing up these changes do not come at a better time than the start of a new year.
While taking shortcuts is mostly frowned upon in many instances, some shortcuts are meant to be taken, and may even yield better results. When it comes to skincare routines, many believe in taking multiple steps with multiple products to tackle every known issue, but doing that can sometimes be counter-productive.
Using multiple skincare products on the skin in one sitting can increase your chances of an allergic reaction, because not all chemicals in skincare products can be used in tandem. To minimize your chances of an even worse breakout while trying to clear your breakout, your skincare routine could do with a little bit of streamlining.

Less Is More
I don’t blame you for giving up on the tedious routine of cleansing, exfoliating, and then slathering on 4 different types of topical creams serving different purposes, every night.
Sometimes I find it hard to even stay awake in the shower, let alone spend a substantial amount of time on skincare after that, with the bed beckoning to me.
Less is also more when it comes to what you apply on your face. The more products you subject your skin to, the higher the likelihood of skin allergies in the form of rashes, lesions and even blisters.
Chemical compositions are complex; you will never know what chemical lies in your cleanser that might not agree with the wrinkle cream you use. Ever watched a scene from a movie or TV show where a mad scientist mixes two chemicals together and the whole place explodes?
Yeah, that could just happen to your face!

One Stone, Many Birds
Looking good amidst the daily exertions of life requires a lot of discipline, and it is definitely not about the quantity of the products in your beauty regimen, but the quality of it.
Like all daily routines, there are “hacks” and “quick fixes” even in the world of beauty. There is no lack of multi-purpose, supercharged beauty fixes out in the market, that will save you copious amounts of time and money.
Formulated from the Nobel-Prize winning research conducted on DNA-repair technology, Gene Therapy is a serum that contains enzymes that significantly diminishes prominent signs of photoaging by UV and environmental stressors.
These enzymes essentially become the auditors of your skin upon application; each damaged DNA strand is identified, removed and replaced to restore the youth UV exposure and environmental factors have taken away from the skin.
Get over that hurdle of tediously putting on multiple creams before you retire of the night with this all-in-one night cream.
Grease-free and easy on the skin, nightly application of this cream introduces skin-renewing collagen into your skin, while fighting off bacteria and increasing the rate of dead skin exfoliation.
Also controls sebum production, which in turn slashes the odds of nasty breakouts.
Not all that glitters is gold – sapphire can also provide the glow you need in life. Like how our body needs a detox after a wild night of binge eating and drinking, your skin needs a reboot as well, after being a magnet for contaminants from the outside world.
A revitalizing dermal peel that provides the necessary exfoliation to unravel the radiance of your skin, this product also cleanses the pores susceptible to breakouts using BHA enzymes. Do away with the dead cells, while looking more alive than you’ve ever been.
There are shortcuts/lifehacks/quick fixes you can take on the road to ageless beauty… glad to have taken you on a few of them!
