Skincare has seemingly become one of the most important parts of a woman’s life. Gone are the days when washing your face was blasé. Taking proper care of your skin will keep your skin clear, and work to prevent aging signs. I want to share the morning skincare routine that leaves my skin ready for a full day of hustle and girl-bossing.
1—Cleansing. I begin the morning by lathering my face with Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser. Using only a bit of warm water, and the Clarisonic Mia 2, massage the product into the skin until the timer goes off. Once ensuring that all of the soap has been rinsed off with cool water, use a soft towel to gently pat the face dry.
2—Toner and Moisturizer. Now for the best part—applying all of the fancy products! Immediately after drying my face, I use a cotton round to apply the Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic. Toner is more essential than most women may believe. It has been proven to tighten the appearance of pores, improve texture, and remove any excess dirt and oil that the cleanser may have left behind. Since discovering this Kiehl’s toner, I will never revert back to my old ways.
3—Sun Protection. After all of the necessary cleansing has taken place, apply a generous amount of a moisturizer with SPF. I find that philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar SPF 30 is a perfect product for combination skin. It is imperative that everyone tries to incorporate sun protectant into their beauty routine. Sun damage occurs without knowing, and can cause future skin problems. Once you gently massage the moisturizer onto the face and neck, move on to the eye cream. Due to its brightening abilities, I have taken a keen liking to Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream. More often than not, eye cream is a skipped step in most beauty routines. Alongside moisturizing, it also diminishes the appearance of under-eye bags and discoloration.
4—Lips. Once all of the products have been applied, it is important to finish off with a lip nourishing moisturizer. With its glossy finish being able to complement any look, GLAMGLOW POUTMUD Wet Lip Balm Treatment is a staple in my routine. Use a lip moisturizer morning and night to gain the most from what the product has to offer.
These simple steps encourage everyone to find the time to adopt a similar skincare routine. Making this lifestyle change will not only keep your skin young and fresh, but you will feel a new level of confidence.
