I’ve had a few people ask me to do a skincare routine and since I recently posted a skincare routine, I didn’t want to do it again.
However, my last routine was more of a nighttime skincare routine. So this time I’m going to show you guys my morning routine.
So, since I’m in college and I work. I usually am awake by 7:00am every morning. I first get up and make a cup of coffee, and then I start my morning routine. This may sound weird to some people but I actually wipe my face with baby wipes.
I have extremely sensitive skin, so many wipes cause me to break out. I decided to give baby wipes a shot because they’re used on the most delicate skin ever. And so far, I’ve been REALLY happy with the results.
For those asking WHY I WIPE MY FACE IN THE MORNING? Well this is because, your face does accumulate oils and dirt while your sleeping. So, before I apply makeup, I make sure to wipe my face off really well.
This next step is conditional. I don’t apply toner to my face every morning, it depends on how my skin is looking. Sometimes, if my skin tone is very uneven or I have redness, I like to apply Mario Badescu’s Aloe Vera Toner and I’ve found that it really helps balance my skin.
Lately I’ve been very obsessed with moisturizers and if you’ve been following my blog, you know how much I love the Origins GinZing Moisturizer. It smells amazing, hydrates my face, and brightens my skin instantly.
The last step in my routine is for my arms and legs. As we move towards colder weather, dry skin is inevitable. So I make a point to apply a thin layer of lotion on my arms and legs every morning. I like to do this before applying makeup, just because I want the lotion to have enough time to dry before I leave the house.
As I previously mentioned, if you’ve been following my blog, you know how much I love the Soap & Glory Righteous Butter, it FEELS SO GOOD and doesn’t leave a sticky residue.
So please let me know what you think of this post! What’s your morning routine? I’d love to know!
