A fashion & beauty destination for busy mamas

Skincare routines can be overwhelming. – there’s so much being sold to us these days- so much we ‘should’ be using.   Do we need to double cleanse? Do we need a serum? Do we need an eye cream?

The main point of the morning routine is to prep your skin for the day. You might think it’s fine to rinse your skin in the shower and go but NO! 

Firstly – the temperature of the water that you wash your body under is too hot for the skin on your face. Yes. True fact.

Secondly – we sweat in our sleep. We crush our faces onto pillows in our sleep.  Gross.

SO, let us break it down it for you…

Watch us demonstrate in the video below (we’ve included step-by-step instructions below too for you to quickly refer back to) and if you want to watch our Evening Skincare Routine, you can read that post HERE.

CLEANSE

You don’t need wipes. You will need flannels. Or old baby muslins will do the job perfectly.

If money is no object, we love an oil or balm to help our make-up slip off at night and a gel cleanser to freshen up in the morning. If you’re on a budget use the same morning and evening.

EXFOLIATING LOTION/ACID

This basically kicks your skin into action.

Don’t use around your eyes.

I use this 3-4x a week.

EYE CREAM

Apply this first out of all the moisturizing products.

WHY? No matter how careful you are to apply your serums/creams you will always get some around the eye area and then the eye cream won’t be able to do it’s job. If you have puffy eyes use a gel not a cream.

SERUM / OIL

Serum comes before oil – if you are using both. Followed by moisturizer.

The way to apply serum is to use a couple of drops on the end of your finger tips and pat them onto your skin. If you rub it between your palms to ‘warm’ it, you’re wasting your money but you will have lovely hands.

MOISTURISER

How much? 10p size is averagely the right amount.

If you are oily and prefer to avoid moisturisers, go for an oil-free moisturiser or a hyaluronic serum.

SPF

Yes, even in isolation. Even when you aren’t outside. UV rays can penetrate through windows and blue light is emitted from phones and TV screens.
