Morning Skincare Routine

Monday, February 2, 2015

I love going through my skincare routine in the morning. It feels like it's my pre-coffee wake up that jump starts the day. My routine has definitely changed over the years, especially as my acne continue to have flare-ups way past my teenage years and I think I finally found one that works for both my acne prone and somewhat sensitive skin. When I wake up, I immediately reach for my Burts Bees lip balm. I love the minty scent that does a good job of masking that morning breath if you have a significant other that you'd like to give a quick 'good morning' kiss. I have been loving using the Konjac Sponge every morning with my Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel. I love how gentle this cleanser is on my skin and the sponge is the perfect daily exfoliator for my morning routine. After I wash my face, I use a cotton pad with Clinique Clarifying Lotion as a toner. It does a great job of toning without drying out my combination skin. After I'm washed and tone, I have been repeatedly reaching for the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream as my morning moisturizer. It is the perfect moisturizer that balances out my combo skin plus anti aging is always a bonus!

What are your go to products in your morning skincare routine?

  8. What wonderful array of products you use! My morning routine consists of my reliable face wash, coconut oil, and SPF! If I'm wearing makeup I definitely use a primer. :)

  11. I'm lucky to get my face washed and moisturized in the mornings. Our lives are busy around here in the mornings and I don't end up starting my morning routine until after everyone is off to school.

  12. I wash my face with Avene face wash, then I use witch hazel as a toner. Then I use a moisturizing lotion with SPF. I grab a cup of coffee then do my make and hair and run out the door!

  25. So I've battled adult acne for about 10 years and I use a product called Epiduo that was prescribed by my dermatologist. I also used a great over the counter cleansing system from Mary Kay called Clearproof. It was AMAZING!
