My 3 step Morning Skincare Routine
I received some messages asking me to share my morning and night time skincare routine. In all honestly I have never had a proper regimen until this past year. I used whatever products I felt like. It was never fixed or part of a “routine”. However I think it’s never too late or too early to start working on a proper skincare regimen, because at the end of the day your skin and health is something you’re gonna have to deal with for as long as you live, and it just gets worse with time.
My Morning Skincare Routine
I’m a mom and my mornings are busy, but as I always say I think these days everyone is busy. So I like to keep my morning skincare routine simple and quick. One that I can actually follow. Instead of just adding a bunch of steps that I’m never gonna be able to follow.
Morning Skincare Routine – Step # 1
Of course, it’s to wash your face. Did you know that the oils that your skin produces through the night actually help your skin to stay youthful for longer(if only your skin was properly cleaned the night before). I used to use a foaming face wash because I love foaming products.However they really strip out the oils from your skin and make it dry and tight. So, now I’m using Lush Angels on Bare skin every morning to cleanse my face. (Angels on bare skin review)
Morning Skincare Routine – Step #2
Instead of using a toner water you can use a serum of your choice. I however like to keep it light on my skin, and toner water is the way to go. There are toners that balance the pH level of your skin removes the leftover makeup there may be but they are also drying and chemical based. I prefer Lush Breath of Fresh Air Toner water in the morning. It’s calming and soothing, plus it doesn’t dry out your skin. This product doesn’t make a huge difference in your skin instantly but you can feel the calming effects within a couple of uses. In the mornings my face tends to get suuuuper puffy, so I put this toner water in fridge before using and it helps to depuff the face.
Morning Skincare Routine – Step#3
I shared my favorite “Day Time Moisturizers” a while ago and I have ran out of almost all of them. Currently I’m using Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Day Cream and Bottega Verda CollagenCODE day cream. I alternate between these two. However Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 day cream is an old favorite whereas Bottega Verde CollagenCODE is a new find. (Bottega Verde Day and Night Cream)
This is my simple and quick morning skincare routine. It takes few minutes and I’m good for the day.
I hope you find this post helpful.
