What is the difference between a morning skin care routine and an evening skin care routine?
Evening skincare is to support our regenerative process while we sleep.
Our morning skincare is to protect and preserve our skin during the day.
In the morning, our goal is to lift away what has been brought to the surface overnight - sweat, dirt, oil, excess product, and then to further preserve and protect our skin during the day.
And it should take no more than 5 minutes or less.
You're awake? Great, let's start.
Your cleanser of choice in the morning can be an oil cleanser, a lotion cleanser, a gel, a micellar based, or a soothing mineral bar.
Or a gentle, creamy face scrub.
Your choice - what wakes you up?
What feels good in the morning?
There is no makeup so it’s an easy wash.
Pat dry with a soft washcloth.
Revive with a Facial Mist or Toner
My favorite method in the morning is a facial mist but either way, add additional beneficials such as soothing cucumber hydrasol and black willowbank (for brightening)with Crisp Cucumber Toner or rose, willow bark and chamomile for skin smoothing, soothing and antioxidant support with Revive Facial Mist - Mist and press the goodness into your skin.
Vitamin C Serum and / or Resveratrol Peptide Serum (I layer them both) to help support your sunscreen actives and to boost what your body uses to keep free radicals at bay during the day. Then add any correcting serums of your choice, such as a brightener or acne assist - Or you may use these in the evening.
If your sunscreen does not provide enough moisture for your skin, then add your moisturizer here. Eye creme goes next (don't forget to add it to your upper lip). Slick on lip balm. Apply your lash or brow serum if you use twice a day.
The star of our show.
Apply a quarter size amount for face, same amount again for your neck and decollate.
