Happy Friday, friends! After sharing a 3 Step Nighttime Routine over on my Instagram Stories a few nights ago, many of you asked if I would share more about my morning skincare routine. And the best part? It’s super easy and quick.
I’m a firm believer in skincare over makeup (although I do think makeup is more fun) and believe in developing a solid skincare routine. After all, if your skin isn’t looking it’s best, neither will your makeup.
Each of these is a product I have used for over 6 months and some are ones that I continue to purchase year after year.
Let us know your go-to product for your AM routine in the comments below! xx Ashley
MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE
This cleanser is super gentle and gives skin a healthy glow. I also use this in the PM to remove makeup. Be sure to use on dry skin, massage in circles, then rinse with cool water.
I recommend this to everyone I know! I use as a toner morning and night and it’s great for all skin types. Bonus, it works to create a smoother surface for makeup. Yes, please! (also reviewed here). Another great option is Thayers Witch Hazel. I like the original, unscented, but our IG fam told us they really like the rose or lavender one. Have you tried any of those?
No surprise to see this pop up again, but I really do love this product. I use every morning and love how soft it makes my skin. Only 2 drops, followed by your moisturizer. And yes, you will really feel a difference in your skin after applying! It feels tight but in the best way possible. I’m about to run out and I’m at the point where I either buy it again or try something new. Do you always repurchase the same things or like to try something new?
I started using this after a beauty event last spring and love how it feels around my eyes. A little goes a long way – 1 drop will be enough for both eyes. The blend of peptides and hyaluronic acid keeps your eye area hydrated and reduces puffiness. Yes, please!
Ok, so not a face product but still one that gets used every morning. This 100% vegan nail oil is super hydrating and I’m convinced it is what helps my manicures last longer.
You guys know I love a facial mist. I use this to set my makeup or as a refresher throughout the day. A summer must have! I like this one because it comes out in a very fine mist.
