The Lazy Girl's Guide to Effective Evening Skin Care
What rare specie of an adult woman doesn't love the refreshing feeling of removing her pants and her bra after a long day of work? After that, don't you just want to slither into bed like a sad, slimy snail and reunite with your beloved bed?
Us too, girl. But amidst all of that, we try our hardest and our bestest to remove all traces of dirt and makeup on our faces before we hit the sheets. We admit we can be the laziest too but we've found an easy peasy way to do some skin care and lovin'!
Step 1: Remove makeup with Micellar Water
There's a reason why most girls swear by it - it works. Grab your cotton and swipe away until you can't see any traces of makeup. Make sure you remove your mascara too! We use the blue Garnier one cause it's so effective + affordable and it's good for all skin types so this we can totally recommend.

Step 2: Wash your face with whatever soap you use
We assume you'd not be so gross and take a shower after fighting through the haggardness of the city. So wash your face while you're at it! Nothing too tedious and fancy. You don't need anything else besides your hands and your soap. Lather up!
See what we did there though? Micellar before wash face. Bam! Instant clean!
Step 3: Toner
No need to put so much. My dermatologist said I just need to get my face wet with the toner. All the nooks and crannies. Again, we can't recommend a specific toner since this would depend on your skin type and if you got any skin issues you wanna do something about.
Step 4: Slap on your Cream/Serum/Moisturizer/Whatever You Have or Need To Put There
You can't just stop at toning your face. Do something about it after. Since I'm dealing with some acne scars, I still have some sort of cream prescribed to help it go away. If you don't have any night cream or eye cream whatever, put on some moisturizer.
AND YOU'RE DONE!
Trust us, this routine is foolproof not to mention so easy to remember and develop as a habit. The most important thing to do after a tiring, stressful day is make sure you have a fresh, clean face to rest with so any dirt won't clog up your pores.
