Skincare is the basis to healthy looking skin. Without healthy looking skin, there is not much that our makeup can do. My skincare routine is all about making my skin look its best.
I struggled with acne before in the past, so bad that I had to go on Accutane. Now I have people tell me that my skin looks flawless. And it’s not just from the Accutane, it’s from how I take care of my face.
I would like to share with you my everyday morning skincare routine.
My Morning Skincare Routine
Step 1: Wash My Face
The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning, I was my face. I’ve been using Trader Joe’s Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil face wash for years now. It’s so refreshing and helps wake me up in the morning
Step 2: Misting Spray
Step 3: Oil or Serum
I am all about oils and serums. The French actually care more about them than they do makeup! Currently, I am using the Mario Badescu Rose Hips Nourishing Oil. I have been known to use Bio Oil as well(Bio Oil was a life saver when I was on Accutane).
Step 4: Sunscreen
I cannot stress the importance of sunscreen enough. I use sunscreen everyday, 365 days a year. There are people who say they never wear sunscreen and I cannot believe it. Since being on Accutane, my already sensitive skin became even more sensitive that I had to start using a natural sunscreen. I would get a chemical burn on my face from other ones. With how I am now when it comes to products, I would’ve started using natural sunscreen along time ago anyways.
When picking a natural sunscreen, make sure there is at least 20% zinc oxide in it. This article is very helpful in explaining the percentages. Also make sure you pick a silicone free one, especially for your face.
Currently, I am using Badger Sunscreen Cream. I love the way it feels and goes on.
Step 5: Eye Cream/Serum
You are never to young to start using an eye cream. I’ve been using Tula Multi-Spectrum Eye Renewal Serum for a few months now. I plan on doing a review as soon as I’m done with it! I will say that I do love the metal tip that helps apply it!
Step 6: Moisturiser
Next is time for my moisturiser. I have been loving my Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet. It’s so light and perfect for summer! It goes on very lovely as well.
I hope you guys enjoyed my morning skincare routine! What are your favourite products to use in the morning?
