Why It’s Time To Switch To A Low-Maintenance Beauty Routine

Your skin will thank you, we swear!



If you’re one who can’t be bothered with complicated and multi-step skincare and makeup routines, we’ve got good—no, great!—news for you: Switching to a low-maintenance beauty routine, even once in a while has amazing benefits.


Well and Good talked to Adrina Grigore, founder of S.W. Basics and author of Skin Cleanse, who explained: “There’s a big myth that your skin and hair need all of that stuff, but they don’t,” she explains. It was also explained that that a beauty detox—or temporarily retiring some beauty products from your routine—should happen when you find that your products aren’t working as well as they used to anymore, or you observe that your skin becomes even more problematic.


Basically, once in a while, your skin needs a breather.


Thinking of cutting down your kikay routine, too? Here are five things that will happen once you do


You take your skincare regimen more seriously.

Because you’ll start using less makeup, you’ll be more conscious of taking better care of your skin. The first step: Cleansing properly. Get rid of dirt, excess oil, makeup, and other impurities by using a gentle cream-based cleanser, like the Ever Bilena Advance White Purity Lightening Milk. It will leave your face clean without stripping it of moisture. Follow it up with a toner to balance your skin’s pH levels. Using a toner will also improve your skin’s texture and even out your complexion.

You discover that less is more.

When you use products that work well for your skin type, you learn that using less is definitely more! Remember, just because your best friend swears by a certain product, it doesn’t mean that it will do wonders for you, too. Chances are, you have different skin types, so you’ll definitely need different products. For example: She has dry skin and you have oily and acne-prone skin. Make sure to pick products that are specifically made to answer your skin’s needs.

You become more productive.

Not to sound too scientific, but because your primping routine is simplified, you can leave the house ASAP, get to work early, and finish more tasks. Plus, in the evening, you can sleep earlier because your nighttime routine is cut down to using just a few products.
