Can you believe that on average, Californian women can get themselves ‘face ready’ in a speedy 3 minutes? According to our latest research findings, those laid-back ladies living on the sunny side of the West Coast are by far the quickest to apply their skincare and cosmetics each morning.
We don’t know how it’s done, but either way, we’re super impressed.
We surveyed over 3,000 women in our latest survey, which quizzed American women on how long it takes them to cleanse, moisturize, apply make-up, and any other facial routines they carry out in the mornings. Whether its due to the consistently warmer weather in California, meaning little makeup is needed, or the fact that their outdoors, beach-front lifestyle requires a more natural look, it has certainly got us thinking.
Luckily, it seems like even though our Californian beauties can prep their faces for the day in record time, they don’t have to jeopardize their skincare and treatment regimes. There are so many products out there which perform dual tasks all in one product.
