No time for a lengthy beauty regime? Try skincare sandwiching

Be honest, we’d all rather have ten more minutes in bed than get up early to take care of our skin. Sticking to a diligent beauty regime is a big commitment and, especially first thing in the morning, we need to be as quick and efficient as possible.

To make matters worse, skincare is no longer a simple matter of cleansing, toning and moisturising. Nowadays there are serums, eye gels, facial oils and all manner of other products to be applied – and that’s before you even start on your make-up!

If you’re struggling to fit it all in then ‘sandwiching’ is the beauty hack for you.

It’s a simple trick to help you apply your skincare products in the most effective way. When you’re getting dressed in the morning, just apply a product every time you put on a piece of clothing. For example put on your underwear then apply your serum, the serum will be absorbed while you put on trousers, then it’s time to apply a moisturiser – and so on.

The technique is more effective than just layering one product immediately on top of another because it gives the active ingredients in each product time to be absorbed properly. Plus, if you get your skincare right you’ll have created a beautifully smooth base which makes applying your make-up a breeze!
