Morning Skincare Routine

I have been spending far more time investing in products on my skincare routine and recently shared my night time regime on my blog. I wanted to update you all on the products I have been applying in my morning routine. As explained previously due to lockdown and being a new Mum, I have been wearing less makeup everyday. I have been loving taking the time to nourish my skin and introducing new steps into my routine. I have noticed a difference to my skin already and it feels far more plump and smooth. I am excited to see these improvements and feel like my makeup applies more smoother. 

There are many products out there and a lot of advice on the order that they should be applied. I wanted to share with you what products I am currently using and the order I apply these every morning. My skin is fairly oily to sensitive and I also suffer from redness. The routine I have found that has made such a difference to my skin consists of the below.... 

Step 1 - Cleanse

Nothing beats waking up and cleansing your face to leave it feeling fresh and ready for the day. I use an amazing cleanser Elemis Pro Collagen cleansing balm and a muslin cloth to clean my face ready for my next steps of my routine. I tend to use this as my cleanser if I want a deep cleanse. Sometime I mix it up and use the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel cleanser as this just gives my skin a boost of essential moisture. 

Step 2 - Toner

I have used the Pixi Glow Toner for years now and it is definitely a firm favourite for many. This contains Glycolic acid which exfoliates and purifies and this has really helped to brighten my skin. This toner deeply cleans pores by eliminating excess oil and impurities. It really has made a huge difference to my skin and I use this in my morning and night time skincare routine. 

Step 3 - Eye Cream

I heard such good reviews about the Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme so I knew I wanted to add this product into my routine. This brightens my under eye area and has helped my dark circles (especially since I have a 12 week old baby). It contains collagen boosting elements and helps to firm and nourish my under eye area which is so delicate as it is such a thin area. I am obsessed with this product as it is so lightweight. 

Step 4 - Vitamin C Serum

I was on the hunt for a good Vitamin C Serum in order to brighten my skin and gain that longed for glow. It seemed to go hand in hand when I came across the Ole Henriksen Eye Creme to use their Truth Serum. This is like a daily multivitamin for the skin. I use one drop of this and it instantly nourishes and brightens my face. It is fast absorbing and oil-free which I love. It also smells divine and helps to wake me up and make me feel fresh first thing. 

Step 5 - Moisturiser

I actually use two moisturisers in the morning as I love how lightweight each of them are and how they leave my skin feeling. First up is the Ole Henricksen C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme. This instantly illuminates my skin and makes my face feel energised and ready for the day. It smells amazing as does the rest of the brand and as you can see I am sold on this range. It really has made an improvement to my dull skin since we have been locked away in lockdown. I really needed a pick me up for my skin and this ticks all those boxes. The second moisturiser I use is the Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Glow Liquid Moisturiser. This is so lightweight and I love how it targets the stresses that my skin might face and keep it from dehydration and dullness. I also use the  Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-stress cream in my evening routine so I love how I complete my skincare with this range. 

Step 6 - SPF

My last step in my morning routine is to apply SPF and I tend to reach for my IT Cosmetics CC+ cream which contains SPF50. I love this product as it is multi functional with the benefits of a full coverage foundation, hydration, anti-aging and SPF. I love this as it is so natural looking on my skin and as I am spending more time indoors during lockdown I love wearing less makeup but still aim for a flawless complexion. 

Now I am ready to face the day with a fresh, nourished and smoother complexion.
