You wake up in the morning, grab your caffeinated beverage of choice, and head to the powder room. There it is—the very beginning of your skincare process! Let’s keep it going…
A soft but gentle cleanser is always the way to start off—try Jelly Mylk Double Cleanser from the Crème shop ($10), or for more dry/dehydrated skin, a nice trick is something hydrating like Tatcha’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mist ($48).
After you’ve dried your face or let the mist settle in, grab a nice vitamin C serum such as Obagi Medical Professional-C Serum ($92). Now, let’s move onto a multi-packed product—my choice is The Ordinary Multi-Peptide + HA Serum ($23.25). With that saturated into your skin, grab your favorite eye cream; I suggest SLMD Night Light ($49).
Time to lock it all in with a moisturizer for your given skin type. Consider these options: The INKEY List Omega Water Cream ($9.99); Tatcha’s The Dewy Skin Cream ($69) if your skin is dry; Kiehl’s Ultra-Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream ($34) if it’s oily; or Youth to the People Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream ($48) if combo skin is the one you’re in.
Last but not least, protect your skin with a strong SPF to fight sun damage. A “bright” choice is La Roche Posay Anthelios UV Correct Daily Lotion Sunscreen ($34.99).
As the day goes by, if your skin feels tight and dry, use a bit of that mist from the morning to refresh and revitalize your skin. If you’re more on the oily side, grab some Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets ($6.99) and dab where necessary.
Here comes the night… For my makeup lovers, grab a cleanser that helps with removal, but doesn’t strip your skin, such as Neutrogena Deep Clean Micellar Water and Makeup Remover ($23.99). Oh, and I always recommend a double wash.
Next, let’s tone those pores with a swipe of Thayers Facial Toner Witch Hazel ($10.95). Bring some plump hydration back to your skin with Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24 moisturizer ($29.99). An extra tip is to add a serum like Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil ($55) to give your face some extra polish. Spot-treat if needed. A go-to for me is GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment ($60).
Finish it all up with a nice cup of sleepy tea, and don’t forget to use your Blissy pillowcase ($67) for extra skin benefits while getting those ZZZZs!
