5 things you should do every night for perfect skin in the morning (that take less than 5 minutes)

  • We love these products, and we think you will too. Just so you know, this post contains affiliate links, and if you make a purchase, we may get a cut of the sale (with no cost to you of course).

  • I don't take my makeup off when I go to bed every single night. I know, I know — it's terrible for my skin and I'm going to regret it later. But when it comes down to it, I'm the laziest person ever about my nighttime skin care routine.

  • I see beauty bloggers with fancy face brushes and clay masks doing multiple skin treatments every night. As much as I wish I could enjoy these luxuries, I'm just too tired.

  • Luckily, I found some cheap, fast and easy products that are a lazy girl's best friend:

  • 1. Pink grapefruit Neutrogena face wash

  • OK you guys — I've been using this stuff since I was like 14 years old, and I absolutely love it. It gently exfoliates the skin, smells heavenly and doesn't leave your face feeling dry. It simply makes it feel clean.

  • My husband also started using it when we got married, and his acne totally cleared up. I splash some on my face in the morning and sometimes at night. So easy and seriously awesome.

  • 2. Neutrogena OIL-FREE makeup remover wipes

  • Neutrogena just knows what's up. I searched and searched for the perfect makeup remover, but everything left my face feeling super greasy. I didn't love that, but then I found these little beauties, and my life has changed. Plus, I can take off my makeup from the comfort of my bed.

  • 3. Bioré charcoal pore strips

  • I don't know about you, but I get tiny little blackheads on my nose that are pretty annoying. I tried a few brands of pore strips, but these were the best. I felt like they really cleared out my pores and left my nose looking better than the other ones I tried.

  • 4. Vitamin E oil

  • I haven't personally tried this, but my cousin absolutely swears by it. She told me that anytime she has a zit, she puts a smidge of this oil on and the zit is gone the next morning. It's basically magic. So if you've got a big event coming up and your face decides to break out, this may be the fastest way to clear up the situation.

  • 5. CeraVe moisturizing lotion

  • My sister bought me a bottle of this stuff for Christmas after she fell in love with it, and it makes my skin so happy. Sometimes, especially during the fall and winter, my face gets super dry. Typically, when I put lotion on it, I break out.

  • Not with this lotion! It's so lightweight and moisturizing. Plus it doesn't feel greasy. I put it on my face all the time for extra softness, and it works like a charm. As an added bonus, it doesn't have a scent so you won't get sick of a smell.

  • No one wants to spend an hour prepping their skin before bed, so these are some awesome options if you want the best skin ever. Hopefully you find these products as helpful as I did!
