5 Genuinely Natural Skincare Hacks for When You Just Can’t Be Bothered

Let’s be real: With everything going on in the world right now, skincare is the last thing on our minds⁠—okay, maybe that’s not entirely true, but in case you want to pare down your routine without sacrificing your skin, here are 5 genuinely natural and definitely time-saving skincare hacks for days when you just… can’t.

1. Rinse your face with ice water

Looking for a quick and easy way to rejuvenate dull skin? The answer just might be in your fridge. 

It’s pretty simple: Just fill a bowl with ice cubes and cold water then use it to rinse off your facial cleanser to wake up your skin and bring it back to life.

This old Hollywood trick (which is now gaining popularity on TikTok) is said to reduce puffiness and help increase blood circulation, making your face appear glowier and healthier.

Additional tip: Apply skincare to damp skin. 

Good news to those who can’t be bothered to wait for their face to dry after cleansing: Experts now say damp skin is more permeable than dry skin*, which means your skincare will actually absorb faster and work better when you apply it directly to your fresh-out-of-the-shower-skin. No more waiting time and no more impatient pat, pat, pat drying? Yes, please! Try it and thank us later!

2. Exfoliate your lips using a toothbrush

Tempted to pick and peel your dry, chapped lips? Don’t!

Instead, before brushing your teeth and applying toothpaste to your toothbrush, use it to scrub your lips to take off any dead skin cells. Use gentle, circular motions to remove skin that’s sticking out and to help improve blood flow and give your lips a smoother appearance.
The result? Soft, supple lips free from flakes! In case you want to take it up a notch, grab this cocoa-butter-infused Human Nature Tinted Lip Balm to moisturize your lips while also adding some color to your face.

And someday soon (hopefully!), when the world is no longer going up in flames, maybe you’ll find the time to do a full lip routine—scrub, oil and butter included.

3. Use your essence as a lotion

For extra, extra hot days when it feels like the sun is just a quarter turn from the Philippines, our PR Manager aka resident mermaid Danah Gutierrez (read about her journey moving to an island here!) just has the perfect tip for you: 

Use your essence (yup, the one you use for your face!) as a lotion to moisturize, soothe and refresh your skin all in one go!

Non-sticky and fast-absorbing, Human Nature Marine Caviar HydroMiracle Essence will give you long-lasting hydration without leaving your skin feeling oily and heavy so slather up and feel free to rub it all over your body! (Plus, it comes at a very affordable price so you won’t have to worry about running out of it! Wink, wink.)

4. Mix your foundation and moisturizer

Want to save time on your morning routine? Combine your skincare and makeup! 

Simply disperse equal amounts of moisturizer and foundation then mix it together on your palm, and voila, you have your very own tinted moisturizer! The best part? It gives you a dewier, more lightweight finish that looks oh so natural—perfect for casual catch-ups and video calls.

5. Just use a face mist

Oh, no! You overslept and your Zoom meeting’s about to start in 20 minutes. You still have to wash your face, change your clothes, and maybe brush your teeth so that leaves you... more or less 2 minutes to look presentable—or even just alive.

Don’t panic. This is nothing a few spritzes of face mist can’t solve!

Guaranteed to give you a beauty boost, Human Nature Rosedew Mist is packed with antioxidant-rich rosewater that not only quickly revitalizes taut, tired skin but also helps reduce skin puffiness while giving you a healthy, hydrated glow. Dew the rescue, indeed!

Who says skincare should be complicated? Just do what works for you and go with what makes you feel good ‘cause after all, you’re the prettiest when you’re happy and comfortable in your own skin.
