Lynsey loves trying out beauty tips and products. She often makes her own products and enjoys sharing any useful information that she finds!

Sometimes, it can be hard to maintain a strict beauty regime. With a busy work-life and other commitments, life can take its toll on your complexion. There are ways to combat this, and they don't take as long as you think. In fact, many of them can be worked into your daily life, and will show results almost immediately.


1- Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise

Ok, so it might be three things, but this routine in general will get things looking better within a few weeks. It's important to take the 5 minutes each day to do this. There are plenty of products out there that are super quick and easy, you don't even need to wash your face!! Repeat daily, and preferably twice a day, and remember to always remove make up before bed to let your skin breathe!

Invest in products for your skin type. You don't need to spend a lot, just make sure that the products you use state the correct skin type. You can get moisturisers for oily skin, so don't be scared into missing that part out!

2- Use a mask

Now, you're probably thinking, when do I have the time to use a face mask. In reality, they take 5-10 minutes to set. I'm sure you can fit this into your TV time, or your cooking dinner time, or any time really!

There are masks that come already formed, in a face shape, just to be stuck on. Others need to be applied, but this takes seconds, and the more often you do it, the quicker you get.

Once a week is all it takes. In addition to your usual routine, a deep cleansing face mask will help to remove deep blackheads longer term. I like a clay mask personally, because I don't like the texture of the peel off versions, but it's up-to you. Again, suit the mask with your skin type for optimum results.

3- Exfoliate!

Dead skin reduces the fresh faced look, and dry spots can show under make-up to give a blotchy, uneven look. Interchange your cleanser with a facial scrub every 3 days or so to remove the dead layers, and reduce the appearance of scarring. Make sure you don't over- do the exfoliation, as it can do serious harm.

I recommend St Ives apricot scrub, which is available in original and blemish fighting. It is fair priced and has plenty of exfoliant in there compared with some of the gels that have "beads" in them. It also smells awesome!

St Ives make the best exfoliating face scrubs in my opinion. They remove the dead skin, leaving a fresh layer behind without being too harsh.

4- Hydrate!

Drink lots of water. Our skin is the first thing to display dehydration and toxins. I always get a spot breakout whenever I drink alcohol, for example.

The best way to stay hydrated is to drink 6-8 glasses of water each day, and try to avoid fizzy drinks, particularly those that are high in colour.

5- Shape Your Brows

It sounds crazy, but this lifts your face, and gives a younger, fresher look. Go to a professional, at least at first, to get a shape that suits your face, and maintain it!

I always feel sexier with well groomed brows, and go every 4-6 weeks to get mine threaded. I think it's worth it, because it's done and dusted in about 20 minutes, compared with an hour of agony at home with the tweezers!

There are also waxing kits and eyebrow shapers, but only use these if you are confident!

Hopefully, these tips will help you regain some youth, and bring back that fresh faced glow! Maybe you will be more confident in going make-up free? Let me know how it goes!
