So I decided to show you guys my morning skincare routine! I love reading these kinds of posts so I thought I’d do my own. My skincare used to be extremely simple however I’d added a little bit more to it now that I’m in my (almost) mid twenties – sure, sure, I’m not old or anything but when it comes to skincare, prevention is key! So let’s dive right in.
Step 1: Cleanser
I simply cannot start my day without a shower in the morning – I simply won’t. For a girl who has oily/combination skin, I wake up with a feeling of greasiness to my skin – sure, it’s hydrated from my night time routine, however it’s definitely not a feeling I’ll start my day with. First step is cleanser. I’ve been using the Mecca Cosmetica Transforming Facial Cleanser to death – it has easily become my number cleanser for the second half of 2017 and now that I’m almost finished, I’m not so sure if I should repurchase or try another! (Suggestions please.) It’s probably the most hydrating cleanser I’ve ever used, is affordable and leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed. It is undoubtedly the one thing that awakens my skin in the morning.

Step 2: Serum
I absolutely love any product that is light weight – that’s why I love using a serum on my skin. I was sent the Bergamo Coenzyme Q10 serum that my skin has been soaking up! One thing that I’ve definitely noticed in my skin is clarity and hydration. My skin is uneven in texture and sometimes tone (depending on the weather), however with the Bergamo Coenzyme Q10, I’ve seen a positive change! I especially love the lightweight feeling on my skin which is a major plus in my books.

Step 3: Dermalogica Smoothing Cream or Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF15
Anything with SPF that is a gel is such a win for me! Like I said before, lightweight for me is key, especially in the warmer seasons. I usually switch between the Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF 15 depending on my mood. I love both equally as they both provide a great smooth canvas for primer and foundation application. On days where I know I’ll be out in the sun, I’ll opt for the Neutrogena and double up with a high SPF foundation.
After steps 1 through 3, I start on my makeup routine! I’m a pretty simple gal when it comes to skincare, especially when I’m getting ready for work! I feel the products I use are more than enough for my skin at this age and none of them have ever given me issues. What’s your morning routine look like?
