Hi there! Happy Wednesday!
Awhile ago I shared my Get Unready With Me: My Night-Time Routine and now I would like to share my morning skincare routine. While pregnant I do not use certain products, so this will be updated after the pregnancy and I can share that when the time comes.
MY MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE:
Step 1: Solve Math Problem Alarm App , Drink Water, and Drink Coffee
Math isn’t my thing, and so having the Freaky Alarm App makes sure I get up because I really have to think to solve even simple math in the morning!! The next step is throwing on a sweatshirt or a big comfy sweater because even in August, I’m cold most mornings. And then I drink a big glass of water which absolutely is part of my skincare routine(sometimes lemon water). And then finally, finally, my coffee (decaf right now!)…through a straw of course ; )
Step 2: Hair Goes Up
I put my hair up into a messy bun using a hair tie like these from Lucky Girl Hair Ties on Etsy or a big claw clip.
Step 3: Cleanse Face
I wash my face with my all-time favorite facewash, Purity by Philosophy with my Clarisonic. Then I dry my face with Kleenex Hand Towels to make sure that I’m not putting a dirty towel onto my just cleaned face. I also use a wash cloth just for my face after showering that I change out every couple of days to keep it as clean as possible.
Step 4: Use Toner
My favorite toner is an oldie but a goodie, Sea Breeze, and I like the one for sensitive skin.
Step 5: Use Moisturizer
I use Esteé Lauder Day Wear and it is my FAVORITE of all time!! I love that it has built in SPF 25, and never feels greasy on my combination/oily skin.
Step 6: Use Brightening Eye Cream
I have pretty bad dark circles…maybe it has something to do with two little kiddos and a pregnant mama?! ; ) To counteract the dark circles, I have been using the It’s Potent! Eye Cream from Benefit for a couple of years. I can tell that it helps, because a few times when I have not used it for awhile I can really notice a difference.
That’s it : ) Then I do any needed body grooming, get dressed, do my makeup, and hair. I hope that you enjoyed this post! What do you like to use for your morning skincare routine?
