In the past month or so I have found myself getting extremely lazy when it comes to my skincare routine. I oversleep in the mornings and don't have time and in the evenings I'm exhausted and can't be bothered. I always make time to cleanse and moisturise but my skin is noticeably missing all my other usual steps and I knew it was time I did something about it.
I have a lot of products in my drawers and cupboard so I sometimes find myself a bit overwhelmed and end up simply walking out the bathroom in protest. I wanted to create a fool-proof guide to have on display that would not only remind me what I need to use when but to also to give me the encouragement and guilt trip I need to do it.
This is the guide I came up with that suits my routine and what is realistic for me, so I stuck it up inside my cupboard door so that when it's opened I am smacked in the face with a reminder to do it!
So far it's been working a treat. I use it as a reminder for the order of each step and something about seeing it there makes me feel too guilty to skip a step. I'd definitely recommend printing off your own guide and sticking it up somewhere in your bathroom... It got me out of my lazy skincare rut.
If you want to download my version, you can do so here. I have a few steps missing though as I know, for example, I won't use eye cream in the evening and my encouraging jabs are quite personal . So adjust yours accordingly and let me know how you get on!
