Your 10 Minute Skincare Routine

Your 10 Minute Skincare Routine


Watching complicated multi-step step skincare routines can be intimidating, and it’s easy to fall into the misconception that flawless skin requires an exhaustive routine. However, you don’t need to dedicate yourself to such a complicated skincare regime to see results. In fact, natural, flawless skin can be achieved by setting aside only 5 minutes each morning and each night to pamper yourself and perfect your skin. Here’s how…

5 minutes on the clock… Ready! Set! GO!


Start your routine by cleansing your skin. Cleansing the face removes traces of dirt, makeup, excess oil, pollution, and unwanted skin cells off the face. It is important to note that if not cleansed properly, dirt and pollutants can accumulate at the surface of the skin and potentially contribute to breakouts, dehydration, and ageing. Make sure to cleanse both morning and night to minimise any pore blockage and substance build up.

Cleanse the face by applying lukewarm water to the skin. Apply a dime size amount of cleanser to your palm and rub hands together, massage into the skin using circular motions for 30 seconds. Rinse the product off and pat dry.

Remember! Cleansers should be used according to skin type - there is a wide range of cleansers available for dry, oily and combination skin.


Your skin should be exfoliated every 3-4 days. This helps prevent clogged pores by removing dirt and impurities from your skin. Regularly using a face scrub revitalizes uneven skin and allows your skin to breathe for a brighter complexion.

There is a wide range of exfoliants available, in the form of either chemical exfoliants or physical exfoliants. Chemical exfoliants contain natural acids that slough away dead skin cells while stimulating skin cell turnover.

Physical exfoliants contain abrasive substances that slough away the outermost layer of the skin that contains dead skin cells and build-up. Oily skin types can benefit from physical exfoliators, as they can withstand more abrasive cleansing.

To exfoliate the skin, wet the face again with lukewarm water, apply a small amount of exfoliant on the palm of your hand and apply to the skin using circular motions for 30-40 seconds. Remember to be gentle if using an abrasive exfoliant!

If your skin is hyper-sensitive, this step can be skipped to avoid any irritation. Instead, apply a second layer of cleanser and rinse, giving your skin a deep cleanse, making sure all product is removed.


 After cleansing, it’s time to apply any treatments or serums   suitable for your skin type. Face serums include lightweight   products that contain a high concentration of active   ingredients. They absorb quickly into your skin, making them   an excellent step after cleansing the skin. This step is   particularly effective during the night-time skincare routine,   allowing your skin to rejuvenate and repair while you get   your beauty sleep!

  Apply our Anti-Ageing Firming Serum before bed by gently patting one pump into the skin with your hands. The serum works for all skin types, treating dull, dry skin. Our donkey milk serum hydrates and minimises the appearance of fine lines as it contains essential vitamins, and amino acids that work to hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin.


Moisturiser is a thick lotion that can be applied to soften the skin and lock in any products previously applied. Moisturising daily is necessary to maintain the skins moisture barrier, this can prevent environmental damage and ensure that your skin is always hydrated and plump.

Moisturise by applying a small amount of product onto the fingertips and gently massaging into the skin for 2 minutes. It is important that your moisturiser is suitable for your skin type. Whether you have oily, dry or combination skin, never fear! Our wide range accommodates for all.

Many believe that oily skin does not need to be moisturised… but this is not true! Moisturising the skin is necessary no matter what skin type. Our Donkey Milk Face Neck & Décolleté Cream is perfect for acne prone, oily skin, as it contains lactic acid that is extremely effective in treating and combatting inflammatory diseases, while using organic elements to reduce any redness and irritation. 

For older skin, apply the Donkey milk age defence face cream after any serums. Donkey milk contains a high retinol content, which stimulates collagen production within the skin. Older skin produces less collagen, making the skin drier and more prone to wrinkles.

Finally, for dry skin, apply our Donkey Milk Hydrating Face Cream, which is rich in vitamins A, C and D, as well as amino acids that ensure moisture is retained within the skin.

To finalise your routine…Pucker up! Don’t forget to moisturise your lips with our Donkey Milk Lip Balm that not only nourishes and moisturises the lips, however,  protects against any dryness and cracking. Our lip balm will leave your lips feeling hydrated and looking healthy.


Skincare routines should be relaxing and satisfying - not stressful. Following this simple, yet effective 10-minute day/night skincare regime will leave your skin looking effortlessly flawless. Click here to shop our donkey milk products suitable for all skin types and skincare routines.
