Imagine starting your day with a therapeutic regimen that brightens and freshens your skin and makes you look great. Isn’t that a perfect way to start your day?
It’s time you follow a strict skin care regimen even in the morning and prep your skin to take on the world. Here’s our ultimate guide to the best morning skin care routine ever.
Step 1: Start With A Cleansing Oil
First things first – wipe off the overnight product build-up and dirt. It is similar to rubbing off the previous day’s notes on a writing board. It is best to use a cleansing oil to do so, as they freshen and awaken your face. They prepare your face well for the subsequent skin procedures.
Try the bareMinerals Oil Obsessed Total Cleansing Oil. It is lightweight and suits all skin types. All you need to do is warm a few blobs of the cleanser by rubbing it in your palms. Post which you can dab it to your face and rub it in a circular motion all over it. Finally, rinse with warm water. Do not dry your face.
Step 2: Follow-Up With A Water-Based Cleanser
Follow it up with a non-oily cleanser that deep cleanses your face and clears off any remaining debris and dirt. Choose a soothing, low-pH cleanser that does not irritate your skin.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is a good choice. Massage it gently on your face in circular motions and wash it off with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.
Step 3: Use A Toner
Toning your face is very important. It balances the pH level of your skin and shrinks the appearance of pores. It is hydrating and forms a protective barrier on your skin.
Toners prevent your skin from producing excess oil. Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Toning Lotion is a good choice. Take enough toner and dab it over your face evenly and let it get absorbed into your skin.
Step 4: Don’t Forget The Serum
Serums are highly concentrated solutions that target and solve specific skin problems. Choose a serum depending on the problem you have, and it will show results.
Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster is useful to improve your skin health. Take a few blobs of the serum and warm it up by rubbing it in between your palms.
Apply the serum on your skin, starting from the nose, and work your way outwards. Leave it on for 2-3 minutes to absorb into the skin.
Step 5: Moisturize Well
Depending on your skin type, either choose a creamy, moisturizing lotion or a water-based gel to nourish and lock the moisture into your skin.
The moisturizer will protect your skin from drying through the day. Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Facial Moisturizer is a good choice.
Take a few blobs of the moisturizer and smoothly pat it over your face and neck. Massage it into your skin till the moisturizer is absorbed.
Step 6: Use A Sunscreen
You need a sunscreen lotion with SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Sunscreen protects your skin from sun damage, which otherwise can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and spots.
Mad Hippie 30+ Zinc Oxide Facial SPF is a chemical-free sunscreen that works perfectly to protect your skin. Take a little of it and massage it into your skin evenly.
Step 7: Protect With An Eye Cream
The skin under your eyes is the thinnest and the most sensitive part of your face. Therefore, it needs special care that only an eye cream can offer.
Eye creams address under-eye concerns such as drying, dark circles etc. Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate works brilliantly to protect and nourish your under-eye skin.
Step 8: Prime It Up
Primer creates a perfect base on your face to apply makeup on. It keeps your makeup intact and helps it stay longer.
Primers are products that your BB creams or foundations hold onto to last longer. Use your fingertips to smoothen the product onto your skin.
Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hr Perfecting Primer is a perfect choice as it smoothens your fine lines and large pores.
These steps will help you start off your day perfectly and your skin will have a good day. And if you follow the steps regularly, you will notice a significant improvement in your skin health too.
