When it comes to your skin, your morning routine is the most important part of your day. If you want gorgeous, glowing skin that will last into the night, you must keep your skin healthy – even if you will be wearing makeup. Here are a few ways you can do that!
Everyone is different -- some ingredients will work better for your skin than others. Try out different products and pay attention to how they make you feel, as well as how your skin reacts to them. Natural ingredients are the way to go, especially those that can help prevent potential skin issues (such as green tea which helps prevent sun damage).
2. De - Puff
Here’s an easy trick to both wake you up and get rid of the morning puff in your eyes: place two spoons in your freezer for thirty seconds. Then press the back of each one to your eyes. It’s only a temporary fix; if the problem persists, there may be an underlying issue such as sleep deprivation.
Although you want to be sure that you wash away product at the end of the day, washing your face isn’t always a must when you get out of bed. However, you should at least wipe your face with removal pads to get rid of excess oils and to prep your skin for the following steps.
Pick a gentle and natural exfoliant that will wash away your dead skin cells without tearing at your face. We love Bioelements’ Measured Micrograins which is formulated with extremely fine micro granules to help even out your skin. Limit this step to two or three times per week; less if you have sensitive skin.
For healthy, radiant skin you must hydrate. Facial mists are a great way to start. In addition to preventing dryness, they also calm the skin and they can be used to set makeup after you apply it.
Again, hydration is critical to healthy skin. Pick a lightweight moisturizer and go heavier before bed. You may also consider using a serum beforehand, such as Bioelements’ Moisture x10 which will help strengthen the effects of your moisturizer for smoother and softer skin.
