I have always prided my self in being fairly "low maintenance". Sure, if I'm getting ready to go out on a Friday night there are a few extra steps involved. But in general, I try to keep it to a minimum. The less time it takes, the better.

(Night cream? I would've laughed at the suggestion). But it might have something to do with the line of products I recently became privy to that made me excited to really start taking care of my skin. Better to start early than once its too late.
