When it comes to lasting beauty, lifestyle and skincare is EVERYTHING. It makes you look youthful and glowy while also making your makeup lay way better.
Developing a skincare routine can be kind of overwhelming. As you learn about new products and ingredients, it’s easy to constantly add new items to your vanity and skincare fridge. This can complicate your process and make that skincare routine not so fun anymore.
To help you simplify, but get as many benefits as possible from your skincare routine, we’re sharing our fave multitasking products. These products do MORE so you can do LESS. Here’s what you need in your lineup:
13 Best Multitasking Skincare Products to Level Up Your Routine
Sunscreen is one of the most important skincare products. The sun can totally kill your beauty goals by worsening signs of aging, discoloration, and sunspots. So, you don’t want to skip the sunscreen.
This EltaMD sunscreen is the perfect multi-tasking skincare product, because it’s also a moisturizer and it’s tinted. It’ll help keep your skin hydrated, protected, and looking bronzy and beautiful.
These eye masks have “multi-task” literally in the name. Whatever your skincare goals are with your eyes, these hydrating masks literally cover it all.
Just apply the masks to cleansed skin, apply for 10 minutes, give yourself a little under-eye massage, and remove. (Here’s more on how to wear under eye patches.) They’ll help de-puff your eyes, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and get rid of dark circles. Plus, they’ll hydrate and nourish your skin!
The Erno Laszlo Multi-Task Serum Eye Masks are super easy to use, won’t take up too much space in your Caboodle, and do a lot. All your eye products rolled into one pink package. What could be better?
Silk pillowcases are a must-have beauty product. The luxe fabric absorbs less moisture, which allows your nighttime skincare routine to do more.
Whatever products you’re using before bed are actually going to stay on your skin and soak in. No more waking up with dry, itchy skin—or dry, crusty hair for that matter. Yea, it’s good for hair too. It reduces frizz and tangles like no other.
Our Iconic Ice Kit comes with 2 products that will level-up your skincare game without extra work. The Skinny Confidential ice roller is a stainless steel and silicone roller that you pop in the freezer and then use to massage your face.
Ice rolling has tons of skincare benefits like reducing puffiness and redness while also lifting, toning, and tightening your skin. It also encourages lymphatic drainage and reduces the look of pores.
When combined with the our depuffing oil, it does even more. You simply apply the oil and rub it all in with the ice roller. This serum moisturizes and protects your skin—and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
A quick icy massage with these two products will make your skin feel and look AMAZING. Do this as part one of your skincare routine for best results.
Primer is like the bridge between our skincare routine and our makeup routine. It helps create the perfect base for a flawless makeup application. Every primer on the market seems to have a different specialty, but this one does it all.
The PÜR 4-in-1 Correcting Primer nourishes your skin, reduces the appearance of pores, evens your skin tone, and, of course, primes your skin for makeup. This is the perfect product for improving your skin health and making your makeup look PERFECT.
There’s that phrase . . . all-in-one!.This one product cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes your skin with natural ingredients. So, if you want to super-simplify your skincare, this basically does it all.
Whether you’re unclogging pores or restoring your moisture barrier, Living Libations will get it done.
Shaving your face is a multi-purpose beauty procedure. YES, you can shave your face as a woman and it doesn’t make it grow back thicker or darker or any other myths you’ve heard about.
When you shave, you not only get rid of unwanted hair, but you also exfoliate your skin. Both removing the hair and dead skin cells creates a smooth canvas for your makeup. It’s actually super beneficial for your skincare and beauty goals as long as you have the right razor.
This multistick comes in a convenient little lipstick-like tube and you can grab it in 7 different colors. What’s it for? Pretty much anything you want. You can use the multistick as eyeshadow, blush, or lip color.
You can pick up just this one tool and finish half your makeup process. Once you find your perfect shade, the multistick is an absolute essential product for anyone looking for a more minimal routine.
Remember those multi-colored pens from elementary and middle school? There was always that one girl with the giant one from Claire’s that had like 12 colors and everyone was jealous. Well, we’re reliving that era with the Alleyoop Pen Pal.
It’s a 4-in-1 multitasking skincare tool that has lip liner, highlighter, eyebrow pencil, and eyeliner all inside. You simply click out the one you want (so satisfying) and do what you gotta do and switch to the next. It’s the best way to get a quick look or quick touch-up.
Color correction is an important part of that full-coverage makeup look . . . but you need so many colors. Peach for those under eye bags. Green for those red blemishes. Yellow for hyperpigmentation. Lavender for sallow skin. And, potentially even more depending on your skin tone.
But, you’re going to have every shadow palette in your vanity out if you correct with all those colors. That’s super time consuming. However, the Stila All-in-One Color Correcting Palette will take care of all of it. It has seven colors to cover any blemish—flawless skin here we come.
Setting spray is a must. It preserves all your hard work. However, you can get setting spray that does more than make your makeup stick. This Supergoop setting spray holds your makeup, gives you that dewy glow, and protects your skin from UV rays.
It has SPF 40 and can be used all day to refresh your makeup and reapply your sunscreen.
If you have sensitive skin, you probably have even more products than most people. You’ll do anything to get smooth, non-irritated skin. This Calming Facial Mist can probably replace a lot of those.
The Avene Thermal Spring Water Facial Mist is made to help with redness, itching, irritation, and sunburns. But, it can do even more. It’ll soothe your skin after shaving, set your makeup, and even help with wounds and burns. What can it not do? This mist definitely multitasks.
Dr. Dennis Gross is one of our favorite skincare gurus. You can hear Lauryn and Michael chat with him in this episode of the HIM & HER Show. One of his products that we can’t get enough of are his daily peels. You just wipe your skin down with the included pads and let the peel do all the work.
It’s made with chamomile, lactic acid, salicylic acid, retinol, and green tea extract for ultimate skincare benefits. The pads accelerate cellular turnover, even out skin tone and texture, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and repair your skin.
Your time is valuable and so is your skincare routine–use these multitasking beauty products to be more efficient.
