My Morning Skincare Routine
My easy four step morning skincare routine. The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is my skincare routine, I find it really helps me to wake up, and gets rid of all the left over products on my face from my evening routine. I never seem to have much time in the morning so having a quick, but effective skincare routine is very important. These four steps prime my skin ready so its ready for me to apply makeup but also make sure my skin gets some extra hydration.
In the summer I do apply an SPF after my moisturiser but at the moment I haven't needed to use one.
Step 1 - Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
I'm not to fussy about what cleanser I use in the morning, as long as it leaves my skin feeling refreshed without leaving it feeling tight I'm happy. The cleanser I have been enjoying using at the moment is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. As with most Micellar Cleansing formulas it's a lightweight cleanser which doesn't sting your skin when you use it, but does make your skin feel clean and refreshed.
Step 2 - Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment
I have officially found my all time favourite eye cream! The Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is a lovely, thick creamy texture which when warmed up between your two ring fingers melts down, ready to be applied smoothly onto the eye area. I didn't get along with the eye cream to begin with because I thought it was far to thick, but now I have learnt to warm it up before applying it I am finding a little product goes a very long way.
Step 3 - La Biosthetique Hydro-Actif
Dermosthetique Hydro-Actif Concentrate Hyaluronique is an intensive gel concentrate for clear firm skin. I use this as my serum step because it packs a huge dose of hydration into the skin without leaving it feeling oily. I have really noticed an improvement in my skin since introducing this into my skincare routine.
Step 4 - Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream
The final step in my skincare routine is a lightweight moisturiser. This Body Shop Vitamin E moisturiser is a super lightweight formula which absorbs quickly into the skin. And like the Hydro-Actif it doesn't leave an oily residue.
