Whether it’s spending time with the family, hitting the snooze button one too many times, concentrating on getting a good breakfast or dinner, or not having the energy to do anything but binge Netflix at the end of the day, you have enough going on. Do you really have to spend time taking care of your skin too? When are you supposed to fit that in? Doesn’t it take 2 hours a day to make a difference? Why bother getting started. UGH.

If you don’t have time to sit down with me (or another esthetician) to come up with a regimen tailored specifically to you try out the one below that matches the time you have. It might take a few extra minutes at first while you’re getting used to your products and timing, but give it a week and you’ll be an expert.

3 Minutes

If you do nothing but this regimen 2 times a day your skin should stay reasonably healthy and free of breakouts. Keep in mind that if you’re not using the right cleanser and moisturizer or skipping the moisturizer all together your skin will likely not respond to this simple plan.

This regimen is best used in the morning with the 10 minute regimen at night.


5 Minutes

When you have an extra two minutes you can exfoliate. Every skin type can benefit from mild exfoliation at least 3 times a week.


10-15 Minutes

Try to get into the habit of a 10-15 minute skin care break at least once a day. Night is the best time for this one because while you’re sleeping your skin is repairing itself and creating collagen. Serums and nighttime concoctions will help you look bright and refreshed in the morning.


40 Minutes

Once a week, try to put time aside to really give yourself a good pampering. You don’t have to spend ALL the time in the bathroom in front of the mirror, in fact, you might try getting a 10 minute power nap in while your mask is sitting.
