Simplify Your Skincare and Makeup Routine

A 10-step skincare routine may sound like the pinnacle of self-care, but who really has time for that? Whether you're a boss babe on the go, a busy mom juggling a million things, or downsizing for your travels, the best skincare routine is, ultimately, the one you can stick to, every day, for the rest of your life. To do this, we recommend simplifying your makeup and skincare routine, in terms of both the products you use and the steps your routine involves.


The benefits of simplifying your routine are numerous. First, you’ll save on time, which we all know is extremely valuable. Your beauty routine should feel like a pleasure, not a chore, so keeping things simple creates more space for the things that matter in your life. Next, you’ll be able to forgo a cluttered bathroom cabinet and invest instead in a few essential, high-quality products that you can trust, rather than wasting money on superfluous products that you rarely use and that have questionable efficacy.


Essential skincare steps


When choosing the best skincare products for your daily and weekly routine, you’ll need to look at what you wish to achieve. Are you hoping to soothe irritated skin and smooth your complexion? Do you need some help with oil control? Or are you specifically interested in anti-aging formulas? Once you know your skin type and have identified your needs, you can find products that will help you achieve your goals and discern which ingredients will be best suited.


The three most important steps in your skincare routine are cleansing twice a day, moisturizing twice a day, and applying sunscreen in the morning and throughout the day. Any additional steps will be tailored to your specific needs and face makeup preferences. Your skincare routine order will depend on what products you're using, but will always begin with a clean face. 


1. Cleanse


Cleansers not only remove dead skin cells, oils, and other pollutants from your skin, but they also create a fresh base for the application of your other skincare and makeup products. This makes it necessary to cleanse both in the morning before you start your day, and in the evening before going to bed or when you get home from work.


Cleansing should be the first step in both your morning and evening beauty routine. In the evenings, use either a makeup remover such as our B.O.M. Voyage Cleansing Balm first, or double wash to make sure you've removed all eye makeup and residual product, as well as giving your skin a thorough cleanse.


Wander Beauty’s Drift Away Cleanser is suitable for all skin types. It provides a deep cleanse while nourishing and revitalizing the skin with the help of coconut water and açai fruit extract, and hydrating and balancing the skin with seawater and kelp.


2. Tone


If you're looking to improve the appearance of your skin, toner is essential. Known for balancing the skin's p.H, reducing the appearance of pores, and protecting the skin from environmental impurities, toner is suitable for dry, oily, and combination skin.


Our Mist Connection Essence and Toner evens and soothes skin with niacinamide and adenosine, gives your skin a radiant glow with evening primrose oil, and hydrates your skin with hyaluronic acid, giving you a more youthful appearance – in just a few spritzes!


3. Apply serum


Knowing your skin type is essential to choosing the right products. This step is where you’ll personalize your routine based on where you might need some extra support. That may be a brightening boost of vitamin C concentrate, an anti-inflammatory eye mask or cream, or a spot-reducing serum.


4. Moisturize


Like cleansing, moisturizing is another non-negotiable, both morning and evening. Regardless of your skin type, this step is necessary year-round, not just during the dry winter months. Like the rest of our body, our skin needs proper hydration to function, and dry skin has been proven to age faster than well-hydrated skin. 


Wander Beauty’s Dive In Moisturizer provides up to 72 hours of deep hydration, helping to smooth, soften, and strengthen your skin. The lightweight formula and non-greasy gel-cream texture absorbs quickly into skin, working perfectly alone or under makeup.


5. Lather on the SPF


The final step to your minimalist morning routine is sunscreen. A high-quality SPF is one of the most important anti-aging skincare tools. We recommend using a lightweight mineral sunscreen such as Pack Up & Glow Priming Mineral SPF 40. This sheer formula protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays as well as blue light and other environmental aggressors while priming your skin for makeup, making it the ideal combination skincare and beauty product.


Weekly exfoliation and masks


A simplified beauty routine doesn't mean that you never get to treat your skin. Weekly exfoliation and masks can help keep your skin looking bright and fresh. Fast Lane Instant Facial gives you a brighter, more luminous complexion. It unclogs congested pores, locks in moisture, and noticeably minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines in just 20 minutes.


Simplifying your makeup routine


What constitutes a simple makeup routine is going to be highly personalized to everyone, based on your needs, the look you're going for, and the occasion. To start building a simple makeup set for daily use, you’ll want to start by cleaning out your makeup bag of any products that are expired or rancid, and recycling or regifting any products you never use. Next, decide what your most essential makeup products are, and invest in clean, high-quality options. Finally, opt for broad-use makeup palettes or combination products like the On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator and Double Date Lip and Cheek. These will help you streamline and organize your makeup routine.
