22 Jul My 5 Step Morning Skincare Routine
Even as a busy entrepreneur and mom, allowing myself 10 minutes each morning to complete my morning skincare routine almost feels like a little escape. Going through these 5 Steps makes my skin feel fresh and revitalized which in my opinion, is the best way to start the day!
As I’ve gotten older, the stresses of life have started to show up in my skin. I had some acne scarring and pigmentation that I wanted to fix plus the fear of premature aging is something that’s always been on my mind.
I love using the Obagi Nu-Derm system because it actually works. Like every other woman on the planet, I’ve tried so many different skincare brands that never seem to live up to their big promises. Once I found Obagi though, that’s when things changed.
As an optometrist, I’m looking at my clients’ faces all day and I notice lots of different variations of skin health. I feel like it’s so important to find the right skin care routine for you to fix those skin ailments you hate and boost your confidence.
I’ve found the right one for me, which is why I wanted to share it with you!
Step #1: Cleanse
First thing’s first, I start with a clean base. The foaming cleanser for oily skin feels gentle but works its butt off to cleanse deeply. I feel like my face is refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Step #2: Tone
The toner is like the cleanser’s wingman as it removes any excess oil cleansing misses. Even if my skin is feeling a little sensitive, it works to calm and restore balance to keep my skin feeling plump and healthy.
Step #3: Moisturize
I have some acne scars and pigmentation, so I use this facial lotion to help reduce the appearance of these issues. With its formulation of vitamins, antioxidants and natural extracts it’s packed with Vitamin C to boost my skin’s natural vibrancy and collagen production.
Step #4: Sunscreen
Too many women miss this step in their beauty routine. You need to wear sunscreen every single day to protect your skin from harmful rays. Not only does this prevent sunburn (a lobster face is so not cool!) but it also prevents premature ageing and skin cancer. I use this every day, even when I’m not planning on spending time outdoors.
Step #5: Eye Cream
The Elastiderm Eye Cream is my savior! It’s anti-aging and helps to restore a youthful glow which is something any mom can appreciate. Finer lines and a more balanced skin tone, what more could you ask for?
