I feel like my morning skincare routine is finally in a good place. It’s taken some finagling, but my skin is finally feeling balanced and I’m content with the products that I’ve been using. My night time skincare routine though.. that’s a whole other story.. I’m still trying to master it.
In the morning, I usually start with a light & simple face wash and a luke warm wash cloth. Some go-tos are the Alba Botanica Good and Clean Gentle Face Wash, Youth To The People Superfood Cleanser or this oldie but goodie featured in the pic above, The Honest Company Powdered Face Wash. I like to switch it up.
Next I like to apply The Ordinary Buffet Serum all over, including my neck using upward motions. After my serum I go right in with the Drunk Elephant C-Tango Eye Cream and pat it with my ring finger around the eye area. A little goes a very long way, a half a pump is enough for both eyes.
For moisturizer I like to mix the Drunk Elephant B-Hydra and The Ordinary Moisturizing Factors + HA. It’s just been my favorite go-to lightweight non-greasy combo as of late. I might keep the same combo for the winter months, or try something else – like the REN Global Protection Day Cream or the Herbivore Pink Cloud Rosewater Moisture Creme.
Finally, I add my SPF. I have a small sample of Green Screen from Farmacy that I was really enjoying.. but can’t decided if I want to purchase the full size or try the new SPF from The Ordinary. I also have a little sample size of the Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte that’s been ok. Not my favorite ever and I don’t always want the added tint, but it works. After SPF, the final skincare step, I’m now ready for primer if want, or I can just jump right into makeup.
