Let’s keep it real—your morning skincare routine is just as important as how you care for your skin at night. But who has time for a huge process every morning? With the ultimate goal of preserving and protecting, your morning skincare regimen can be quick and effective. Ready to wake up your morning skincare routine and try something new? Try these tips.
Tip 1: Start with Double Cleansing
Change how you wash your face in the morning and try double cleansing. We love how effective the process is—especially if you are using oil-based products at night such as essential oils. Double cleansing starts by cleaning your skin and purifying those pores, then gently exfoliates. Be sure to use a cleansing duo that is ideal for your skin type.
Tip 2: Get Serious About Serums
Serums are pure skincare magic, and if you aren’t using them as part of your skincare routine, the time is now. Highly active and concentrated, serums are not only helpful in treating everything from acne-scarring to fine lines, but they’re also vital for anyone looking for anti-aging treatments or to improve skin tone and texture. One of our favorites? C Power. This age-fighting, super-powered vitamin C serum does it all—brightens, fights aging, gently exfoliates, and protects.
Serums are applied just after cleansing and can even be layered depending on what you are looking to treat. We’re not kidding when we say a few little drops can make a huge difference.
Tip 3: Don’t Forget the Eyes
The reality is the eyes are the first place most people show their age, so why not take a few seconds every morning and give them a little extra love. Don’t neglect this delicate area, instead gently pat on a nutrient-rich eye cream designed to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, giving skin a firmer, tighter appearance while reducing puffiness. Apply your eye cream just after your moisturizer—you can also add it around the lips to protect against fine lines.
Tip 4: Protect Yourself
Anyone in the skincare industry will tell you the most important step in your skincare routine is applying sunscreen. In the morning, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher—after your moisturizer but before applying makeup. The simple truth is protecting your skin from UV rays can prevent skin cancer and signs of aging. Why do the rest if you don’t first protect your skin?
