It can take at least several minutes, twice a day, to get through your skin care routine, especially when you consider that it’s best to let each product sink in and dry before moving onto the next one. However, in order to get skin that looks and feels as good as possible, it’s something that has to be done, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a boring process. The following are some ways to make it more fun that could actually encourage you not just to keep up with your routine but to take your time with it as well.
Watch Your Favorite Shows
If you want to catch up on some of your favorite shows, pick one for each night and/or day and watch them while you’re doing your skin care routine. It’s an easy way to ensure that you’re all caught up with your shows, and you’ll be able to keep yourself entertained in the process.
Turn It Into A Dance Party
Sometimes at the end of a long day or to get your day started off the right way, the best thing you can do is have your own little dance party. Put on some of your favorite music and sing and dance while you’re doing your skin care routine. Before long, you’ll be finished and you will have enjoyed some good tunes.
Do It During Commercials
How many times has your show been on and you wanted to watch it but you knew your skin care routine needed to get done? Do it during the commercials. Wash your face, apply a product, then go and watch the show. During the commercial, go back to the bathroom and apply another product, and keep it up throughout the show until your routine is finished.
Get Friends Involved
There are many who try and do a face mask once a week, but it can be easy to put it off especially if you’re dealing with a super-packed schedule. Make sure you do it by getting your friends involved. Each week, get together with one or more of your friends so all of you can have a mini pampering session while you catch up with each other. Do face masks, manicures, etc. It’s a way to get part of your skin care routine done while also making sure you get to see your friends.
With everything that has to get done in a day, texting is typically the easiest form of communication, but when was the last time you called a friend or family member to have a discussion? Even if you can’t get together in person, use the time that you’re doing your skin care routine as a time when you can call one or two people just to see how they’re doing. You can even schedule calls with loved ones to make sure you don’t miss each other’s phone call.
Your skin care routine doesn’t have to be some long, boring period of time when you’re just sitting around the bathroom doing nothing. Finding ways to make it fun can make the process much more enjoyable and help the time pass more quickly so before you know it, you’ve gotten your skin care routine done.
