Between having a non existent skin care routine to constantly using tanning beds or just plain neglecting my skin.
Fast forward to today and my skin is in the best shape it’s been in years!! I am reaping the benefits of my devoted skin care routines. It doesn’t matter how tired I am one night or how late I’m running in the morning, my skin care routines are non negotiable.
I wanted to share with you the simple steps you can start taking today to crafting the perfect skincare routine for you!
Depending on your age and skin type there is always room to add more to your routine, but I am just going to give you the basics of my morning skincare routine to get you started.
Cleanse your face.
You need to start with clean skin, because this allows for the ingredients in your skincare products to absorb effortlessly. I always double cleanse my skin. I usually use a Vitamin B oil cleanser first and follow it with a gentle or exfoliating cleanser. You can also add a cleansing tool to your routine for an added touch.
My go to cleanser right now is the ZO Skin Health Gentle Cleanser.
Exfoliate your skin.
My all time favorite is ZO Skin Health Exfoliating polish. I use both AM and PM and it’s gentle enough to do so. This product uses magnesium crystals to gently polish your skin and gives you smoother texture. It also removes dead skin cells as well as prevents clogged pore
Tone your skin.
Great toners will prepare your skin for your products and balances the pH levels in your skin. My favorite is the ZO Skin Health Complexion Renewal Pads. These were a game changer for me, because they are so easy to use and they help to remove any remaining residue left on your skin after cleansing and exfoliating.
Medical Grade topical treatments/Serums.
I use an antioxidant serum everyday. My two favorites are: Skin Better Science Alto and ZO Skin Health Daily Power Defense. The Alto has 19 antioxidant ingredients that promotes even tone and enhances radiance in your skin. The ZO Skin Health Daily Power Defense diminishes lines and wrinkles, and addresses future damage. This powerful antioxidant was designed to support the skin’s natural DNA repair process plus help restore barrier function and overall skin health. Depending on the needs of your skin either one of these products is a must have in your daily skin care routine.
The skin around our eyes is as thin as tissue paper. Don’t neglect this delicate area! Skin Better Science Interfuse Eye Treatment is a great product to add to your routine.
Anifsa LILOU Regenerating Balm is my absolute favorite product! I use this day and night. This is designed to replace a traditional moisturizer. This oil-based balm is formulated with the best botanicals-think antioxidant-rich blueberries, moisturizing grape seed oil, and calming matcha tea. It revitalizes and restores your complexion at a cellular level. It has no fillers or additives and it absorbs into your skin for beautiful, dewy glow.
Sunscreen is the most critical part of your skincare routine. Wearing sunscreen every day can do more than prevent skin cancer-It will prevent signs of aging as well. My favorite is Skin Better Science Advanced Mineral Protection TONE SMART. It’s SPF 68 and 100% mineral-active sun protection. It comes in a tone-adapting compact that provides a hint of color. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
