My Skincare Routine | Daytime Edition
You've heard this all before, "Proper skin care is very important for maintaining optimum skin health and hygiene. A major part of this care involves the daily day and night routines.".. Surprisingly, my Night-Time Skincare Routine post has received the most views out any of my posts! Since then I've received a ton of emails asking about my morning routine. SOOOOOOO.... Here it is. 🙌🏻
I'm not going to lie, I don't wake up and immediately start on this routine.. I usually wake up around 8ish and spend the first couple hours with my little boy. I play with him, feed him baby mush, eat my own breakfast, and change a few dirty diapers in between everything.. Glamorous, right? 😝 Hahah I'm joking, I really do love it. Nothing makes me happier than getting to spend all of my time with Leo. 💕 Now, let's get into my skincare routine before I get all sentimental and even more off topic...
I start off my routine by wetting my face and rubbing one pump of this cleanser into my face with my fingers. I love this cleanser! It's gentle, non-irritating, and perfectly removes any leftover gunk from the night before. I have pretty oily skin, and this has worked out really well for me! I don't use a Clarisonic in the mornings, just at night. My skin gets a little irritated if I use it twice a day.
Once I finish washing my face, I dry it and put on some L'Oreal Youth Code Day Cream Moisturizer. It helps to fade dark spots, acne scars, age spots, and even out my skin tone. I have really discolored skin and this has helped me out A LOT! Now, about an hour later, or right before I do my makeup (whichever comes first), I put on one pump of the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (the oily skin formula). I think it helps my makeup go on more smoothly and stay on longer.
The last step in my routine is this eye cream. If you read my Night-Time Skincare post, you'll notice that I use this at night too. I love love love love LOVE it! It is amazing at making my puffy, dark circles less noticeable. I keep mine in the fridge so that it's cold when I use it. It helps wake me up a little more and feels great! 😍
That's all there is to it! I don't have perfect skin, I'm far from it. But I can definitely say that ever since I started using these products, it has improved immensely! Not only that, but my makeup goes on sooo much more nicely, and lasts a million times longer than before. Proper skincare is key. You can have incredible artistry skills, the most expensive makeup and brushes, but without a nice canvas to work on, you're making things a lot tougher and a lot more expensive. ...Did that even make sense? 🤔😂🙄😓
