MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE
MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE oct 2020
I use different cleansers depending on time of the day, or mood. Sukin is for the shower. Micellar water is sometimes when I get out of bed instead of splashing cold water on my face.
A toner is often an overlooked step which is basically intended to act as a foundation for all the ingredients you're about to add to your skin. Generally it is best to wait five minutes before applying next step, so get dressed, brush your teeth or make your bed, etc.
The skin around your eyes is thinner, more delicate and also ages first and quicker than the rest of your face, so en eye cream is lightweight compared to a face moisturiser. An eye cream can also address specific skincare concerns such as dark under-eye circles and puffiness.
Step 5 is optional and addresses issues such as acne, scars, pimples, etc.
I don't use anything, but my daughter use this for her acne.
Probably the easiest step that most people will be already doing. Choose a moisturiser appropriate to your skin type, and if there is only one step you should be doing, it is that one. Forever.
I will favour anything that comes out in a tin or container, rather than a tube.
A face oil seals in all of the hydrating ingredients and adds extra nourishment. It doesn't clog your pores unless you apply too much. Like a serum, a face oil can be expensive, but you only need a few drops so it lasts a long time. Make sure the oil contains natural oils like floral, berry, and nut extracts rather than synthetic oils such as mineral oil.
Much prefer Platin48.
Lip balm & a refreshing face mist to top up during the day.
