Don’t get us wrong...we love self-care. We’re all about finding a beauty routine that works for you. But we’re also aware that products you put on your face and hair can get pricey. And that 17 steps in a routine is pretty tiring.
So we rounded up products that can simplify your process, cut down on time, and do more than one job. We even asked Skimm editors for their most-loved recs. Because we want you to save some cash and get to bed on time.
Oh, and sign up here to get more recs of our fave things to your inbox every Monday.
It’s got antioxidants to nourish dry skin. Plus it comes flavored or you can stick with the original and use it on your hands, elbows, and feet. The beeswax will act as a protective barrier against skin irritants. ($12, Glossier)
Whiteheads, we’re looking at you. These hydrocolloid patches cover breakouts and reduce inflammation. They work to extract pus, healing the skin along the way. You can apply one before heading to bed and then remove in the morning. We’re talking minimal effort. ($6.95/pack of 2, Amazon)
It’ll clear away makeup, pollutants, and dirt that settle deep into your skin. Plus, it won’t dry you out and can be used every day. Packed with white tea, rosemary, chamomile, aloe, and pomegranate...it’s like your beauty superhero. Skimm’rs get 15% off when they purchase. Add it to your regimen, stat.* ($22, Lather)
Be gone, annoying flakes and scaly patches. This gel cream has hyaluronic acid, which locks in moisture. So instead of using multiple creams to get smooth skin, you’ll just need one. It’s also non-comedogenic so it can be worn under makeup and it won’t clog pores. Huzzah. ($16.99, Target)
Ah, heat tools. Raise your hand if you went a bit wild with your straightener in the past. To help hydrate your locks, spray this mask onto freshly washed hair. And that’s it. No washing out. It’ll work to strengthen and revive fried strands and split ends. ($28, Briogeo)
No more wipes in your garbage. Just one reusable cloth that works on sensitive skin to get rid of whatever’s on your face (including waterproof mascara). All you’ve got to do is add water. No chemicals. Just a couple swipes over the skin. Magic. ($9.99/set of 4, Bed Bath & Beyond)
And no, you don’t have to be an expert. Consider this a brush and hair dryer in one. It features three heat and speed settings, plus a cool option for styling. The oval design helps to smooth your locks and create volume. Hello, good hair days. ($41.99, Amazon)
