To continue with fullfilling my promises in terms of sharing my skin care routines with you, today I will talk about my morning skin care routine. I will go more into detail into the products that I use, how I use them and in what order. Let’s start with the simplest task – the order:
This step ensures that all the residue from the night packs and creams is removed from my face. My go 3 products are the Vichy Normaderm gel cleanser, Nature Republic Hawaiian deep sea mild scrub foam cleanser and the IT’s True Premium Real Honey Deep cleansing foam.
This step is removing the dead skin cells and makes sure that make-up applies more evenly. I use the pads and the spray for the convenience in the because this is just the fastest way of application. I do own the acid peel kits and face washes but I tend to pamper my skin with these once about every 2 weeks.
Nourishing wash-off mask and every 2-3 days a clay mask instead:
I tend to apply the nourishing mask for giving my skin quick moisture boost after acids which tend to be drying on my skin. My face immediately appreciates it and looks more rejuvenated after such treatment. My ultimate go-to products from this category are the British rose and the Amazonian acai masks from The body shop.
Every 2 to 3 days I skip the acid step and do the clay mask instead to keep my pores clean and blackheads under control. For that I typically use the Biotherm wonder mud and The Body Shop Himalayan charcoal mask.
Last 3 steps I use are always the same:
I always try to use the same skin care line because that way each products benefits the next one. Same with the night skin care routine. I did try mixing up the brands in the past. Unfortunately some of the products I used back then counteracted with each other which gave me a skin rash.
I would strongly recommend to invest into the thin cotton pads for applying the toner and emulsion. That way you don’t waste your liquid products such as toner, emulsion, lotion, make-up remover e.t.c. These pads are my life-savers for making my products last longer!
That is it! Afterwards I just do some simple make-up and I am good to go. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you have more questions about any of the mentioned products.
Thank you for reading!
Yours truly, Kati 🙂
