I would like to share with you my 5 step skincare routine for the morning that I been following for about 5 years now. 5-Step routine? I know it may sound pretty long but its actually not. Besides, the more you do it, the better you will get at it!
This routine in combination with skincare devices on regular basis absolutely transformed my skin.
- Cleanse. First, use an oil based cleanser, like face oil, body oil or oil-based makeup remover to dissolve oil based products. Second, use water based cleanser to gently remove oil based cleanser.
- Exfoliate. You can use a facial scrub or a chemical peel, not both especially if you have a sensitive skin. The best part about exfoliating in the morning is that your makeup (foundation, concealer, powder, highlighter or primer) will apply and look so much better and smoother!
- Toner to hydrate and nourish your skin. Once you pick your favorite toner and start using it everyday, you will never want to miss this step. You won't be able to see it but your skin will thank you for applying it.
- Serum is a highly concentrated solution with certain ingredients. There are so many serums out there. You will only need a small amount to notice a big change! Its like a vitamin for you body.
- SPF moisturizer. Note: if you use eye cream do it before face moisturizer. There different types of moisturizers so make sure to pick the right one for your skin type: dry, oily, normal, combination or sensitive. Make sure its an SPF moisturizer (at least SPF 25-30) for the morning routine. Not only it helps to reduce your risk of skin cancer but it can also fight against the signs of aging.
If you are not sure about certain step or if you don't know if you really need it or not I will be sharing more information about each step, where I will tell you what it is, why you should do it and how exactly you should do it.
