There was a time when women were just busy with household chores and baby-sitting but now, they have to check their mails and do social networking; remain out of the house to fulfill their ambitions; manage home, work and self. What will you call such a woman? Busy bee-one who doesn’t have time even to look at her in the mirror. We simply cannot expect her to follow a beauty regime when she is always on the go. But, on the other hand, is it wise to ignore the demands of your skin? There can be simple beauty tips busy women can follow when they are on the run. Read on to know how it is done.

Is your closet brimming with skin care products? You have everything- anti-aging creams, night creams, day creams, wrinkle creams, toners, cleaners, fairness lotions and so on. The good news is that you don’t know which one is essential and has to be used daily. Rule number one- get rid of extras that you have not used for more than two months and those that are living beyond expiry date. You will not use either of them and your shelf will take a breather. Now, decide which of the remaining products go with your skin type. Don’t know your skin type yet? Determine yourself if your skin is dry, oily, combination/normal, or sensitive or go to a dermatologist for help. Once determined, keep only those skin care products that suit your skin.

Further, remember that you only have to follow a basic AM and PM skin care regime. Busy women can take out time in the morning and at night to follow simple and quick how-to for skin care. First thing in the morning, cleanse your face with a cleanser that suits your skin. You can also exfoliate gently, twice a week. Now, this part is important- apply a moisturizer according to skin type. Lastly, never leave home without layering your skin with an appropriate sun block lotion (minimum SPF 30, maximum SPF 50), half an hour before stepping out. This AM skin care regime will not take more than ten minutes. As for the PM regime, cleanse your face again, apply a correction or soothing night cream and voila, you are done for the day.

Just follow these simple and quick tips for skin care- they will suffice for your skin care regime. Remember, beauty comes from within; you have to eat right and drink more water to get that flawless skin.
