How To Get Ready To Face The World In FIVE Minutes

A thorough skincare routine in which you take time to exfoliate, tone, massage and treat your skin can reap a thousand rewards. But, we know all too well there will be times when your mini morning facial will have to wait when you’re spinning a thousand plates first thing in the morning.

But take note, it’s a slippery slope if you opt to skip your skincare entirely. And you really needn't. The good news is a quick, but smart skincare regime will still do wonders for your skin and help keep your complexion in its happy place ready for when you’re back in the game.

So, here’s how to smash a speedy morning routine that ensures you look fabulous and still get out of the door in five minutes – maybe even less if you play your cards right… And today you can get 20% OFF these five minute favourites in our End of Summer Sale (discount code EOS2021). Bonus!

1. Cleanse

Time Needed: 1 Minute 

Cleansing is the absolute foundation for everything that follows, so no matter how rushed you are for time, never skip a good, solid cleanse. Apply Crystal Cleanser all over your face and neck, massage it into your skin for 30 seconds, then rinse with lukewarm water and dry with a clean towel.

More importantly, cleanse your skin thoroughly before bed to remove make-up and daily grime – then you won’t need to spend so long cleansing in the morning. Smart, right?

Oh, and here’s a little hack for when you’re short on time, why not swap out your cleanser for Natural Luminosity Scrub to gently exfoliate and make your skin glow from within. Don’t fancy that? Bring back your scrub into your evening routine to help speed up your morning after.

2. Tone

Time Needed: 30 Seconds (if that!)

Toning can literally be done in the blink of an eye, so there’s simply no point in not doing it. As long as you choose a nourishing, non-astringent formula that’ll hydrate your skin, not suck all the life out of it! Grab Diamond Toner while your skin is still slightly damp from cleansing, and spritz a few pumps all over your face and neck. Done. 

3. Treatment

Time Needed: 1 Minute

After toning, it’s time for your serum and eye treatment. And great news, these require very little time as their low molecular weights mean they’ll sink into your skin with no effort. Apply just a pump or two of Pre-Eminent Beauty Serum first, tapping it gently all over your face and neck, then use your ring fingers to smooth the smallest amount of Imperial Eye Gel around each eye.

4. Wait

Time Needed: 1 ½ Minutes

Hold on, a five-minute routine that includes a minute and a half of doing nothing? Yes, you read that correctly. But bear with us, because we’re not going completely mad. The thing is, layering products on top of each other too quickly can sometimes make them pill. This is when they form tiny little balls on the surface of your skin – which is not cool.

Sit back and allow your serum to settle for a minute or so and you’ll totally avoid this beauty bugbear. Also, you can use this time to make a brew, pack your bag or brush your teeth. Because multi-tasking is something we know you do very well.

5. Moisturise & Protect

Time Needed: 1 Minute

As you’re aware, sunscreen is vital with a capital ‘v,’ so, if you’re one of the lucky ones and have to hand our Organic Tinted Moisturiser with SPF 25, then this is your answer to a quick exit. If not, keep your eyes peeled for when it’s back in stock and in the meantime our luxurious age-defying Imperial Moisturiser will leave your skin feeling soft, supple and ready to face the day.

But please, remember to apply a good quality sunscreen afterwards (and yes, we have your request for Imperial Moisturiser with SPF firmly on the wish list… bear with). 

And that, dear friends, is how to get your glow on in a flash. Got a spare few seconds before you leave the house? Then treat your lips with a little Superior Lip Butter. Or better still, add some colour with our trio of Natural Organic Lip Glosses (you can even try them on your cheeks too!).

Don't forget to snap up your five minute favourites with 20% OFF in our End of Summer Sale, but only while stocks last ...
