Today, as part of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge I am sharing my Morning Skincare Routine. I wrote about my Evening Skincare Routine at the start of this challenge (as my letter E post).
My morning skin care routine is a lot different to my evening routine and I like to focus on cleansing and preparing my skin for make-up preparation if I am going to work, or just cleansing my skin when I am at home.
I like to start my morning by applying a creamy cleanser, I find the Soap And Glory Peaches And Clean Deep Cleansing Milk to be really good for my morning routine as it doesn’t dry my skin out and leaves my skin soft. I usually apply this product to damp skin with my hands and use my Facial Brush if I need extra exfoliation. I remove the cleanser with my facial sponges. I will use a flannel to remove if my skin is looking a bit dull as it can help to boost the skins circulation and help to further aid in exfoliation.
I use B Pure Micellar Oil to remove any residue left on my skin from the cleanser. As this is oil based it really helps to moisturise my skin while removing any impurities. I use tissue to blot my skin to remove any excess oils that are left over from the micellar oil.
Once I have finished cleansing my skin I then use this moisturiser from Tesco, it is a light moisturiser which absorbs well into my skin and contains an SPF. This moisturiser doesn’t leave my skin greasy or any residue on the surface of my skin which is perfect for days when I want to wear makeup.
If my skin is starting to look and feel dry I follow my moisturiser with Superdrug Calm Skin Hydrating 2 in 1 Serum and Moisturiser, which I tend to apply on weekends rather than work days. If I do use this on days when I intend to wear makeup I will apply the serum and then let it sit for around 10 mins (perfect coffee drinking time!!!) then I will blot my skin before adding a primer to my skin. It’s not that this serum is oily or leaves much of a residue but in the past, when using different serums I have learned that my makeup doesn’t last as long if I skip the waiting and blotting step.
What is your morning skin care routine like?
