Morning Skincare Routine.

Sunday, March 13, 2016

In the mornings I like to keep things very simple and quick so I can spend as much time in bed as I can! What I tend to do - and what I would recommend if you're not a morning person like me - is to treat your skin really well at night, so when you wake up it'll looking glowing and fresh. This in turn means you can skimp out a bit when it comes to your morning routine. For reference my skin is dry/normal, so I really focus on products that are going to nourish and inject some life back into my dull skin.

Starting off, I will always use my Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, it's my favourite to use in the morning as I find it leaves my skin glowing. It's a gel to cream formula which works great for those with dryer skin. It also removes any makeup you may have left on from the day before! It's a light formula so I prefer to use this in the mornings than at night, but it's a great all rounder. So here is where I tend to brush my teeth then move straight for an oil or serum. Lately I've been really loving my Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate which plumps and firms the skin. This is a fairly new product from the range and although it hasn't lasted me as well as I thought, I would repurchase. I use a few drops on my fingertips then press it into the skin to ensure it sinks in beautifully. If you suffer from dull and lacklustre skin, I would definitely recommend investing in an oil as they really do help to inject a bit of a glow back into the skin.

I've got a new moisturiser that I've been testing out for a few weeks and I love it. I've always walked past the Pixi stand and swooned over all the gorgeous packaging and how everything seems so enticing and would work great for my skin, so I finally caved. The H2O Skindrink is a blue gel formula - not blue on the skin though, promise - which helps to hydrate the skin. I normally use cream formulas for my moisturiser, but coming out of these harsh winter months I feel like my skin needed a bit more, and this definitely gives it that! I also love the handy pump! Pixi skincare is fairly new to the beauty world and the pricing is reasonable I would say, most products range from £10-£20. If my moisturiser doesn't include SPF I will always use one on top. When you think about applying a suncream to your face, you may just think about a thick cream clogging your pores, but actually there are loads that don't fall into that perception. The Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defence SPF 50+ is one I've used for about a year now and I love it. It's a light cream which feels like your popping on another layer of moisturiser. I can't stress enough how important it is to protect your skin from the sun so make sure you are always including some sort of SPF in your routine. The higher the better!
