Ultimate Skincare Routine - As You Dress!

Updated: Oct 11, 2022

5 Steps to Best Morning Skincare Routine

Here is my general roadmap for a Best Morning Skincare Routine for most skin types.

Make the best use of your time > just do it as you dress! 26 Product Choices.

What should be daily routine for glowing skin?

Always cleanse your face upon waking to loosen dead cells from overnight. Pat on a good hyaluronic acid serum to plump and hydrate your face and then slip into your underwear. Now that it's soaked in, reach for a Vitamin C skincare product to brighten your complexion. Next your bra, followed with a moisturizer to lock in hydration. Stare at your closet, not too long and put on a top. And then... always, always and all year, finish with a sunscreen product. I do not recommend retinol products for the daytime.

Ta-dah! All done. Makeup next? That's up to you.

How To Do Morning Skincare Routine

The following skincare products are not listed in ordered preference, yet all are excellent choices. But the A-E outline is the preferred order. I hope you learn about some skincare brands for the first time too!

A. Cleanser

B. Hyaluronic Acid Serum

C. Vitamin C

4. Chanel Cleansing Le Lait Milk (like a cleansing oil but not oily)

3. Energize Super C Serum (pump dispenser)

4. Glo Skin Beauty C-Shield (anti-pollutant as well)
