For busy girls, every precious second of sleep counts, especially during crunch time when you get to bed late. Your skin will need a fast and potent nighttime product lineup to remain healthy and flawless. Below, we created a speedy skin care routine you can adopt when you're pressed for time.
Flawless and Shine-Free
For oily-skinned gals, you need a shine-fighting team: a facial wash that expels all gunk and oil from the pores, a calming toner with blemish-zapping witch hazel extract, and a feather-light moisturizer with salicylic acid.

A simple anti-aging regimen calls for products that pump in moisture and strengthen the skin’s barrier. You may start with using a gentle cleansing milk that gets rid of dirt and grime without sucking out your skin’s natural moisture, and then prepping the skin with a hydrating toner. Lastly, apply a few drops of wrinkle-fighting nourishing oil in a tapping motion to prevent skin sagging.

Revived and Restored
Sleepless nights would surely take a toll on your skin, so a cocktail of beauty sleep-simulating products are prescribed. Try this approach: Slough away sallow skin with a mild detoxifying facial scrub, pay extra attention to your tired peepers with a firming eye serum, and recharge your complexion with a vitamin E face oil. You’ll look refreshed and revived in the morning.
