Beauty Favorites: Morning Skin Care Routine

7:40:00 AM

Hello there!
Today, I will be sharing my morning skin care routine. Check out my Nighttime Skin Care Routine if you missed it.
My Skin: Combonation & extra sensitive

I like to cleanse my skin right when I wake up in the morning. It is not only refreshing, but helps my skin prepare for the day ahead. I use the First Aid Beauty Radiance Polish. I love First Aid Beauty because like most of the products I use it is great for sensitive skin. It also leaves my skin glowing after every use. It is an exfoliator, but not to rough for everyday use.

I follow-up with moisturizers. I prefer a lightweight moisturizer in the morning and one that lays well underneath my makeup. I also like a moisturizer that has an SPF included. It kills two birds with one stone. My current favorite is the Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream SPF 30. For my eyes I use the Kiehl's Creamy Under Eye Treatment. This is a creamy, moisturizing eye treatment formulated with avocado oil. This is a great eye treatment for everyday use. It is not too thick and sits well under my makeup.

For my lips I use the Dior Creme De Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm or the Burt's Bee's Beeswax Lip Balm. I alternate between the both of these products. It just depends on how dry my lips are feeling that particular day.

There are a couple of other skincare prodcuts that I wanted to mention that I don't use everyday, but are an important part of my skincare collection. I keep a tub of the Body Shops Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub in my shower for occasional occasional exfoilation. I use this about twice a week and before I use my self tanner. I have been using a self-tanner for the first time this summer. I was pleasantly surprised with the results too. I use the St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse and it gives me great color, like I just got back from the beach! For a girl who doesn't get tan this is a big deal. I highly recommend it to those of you looking to get some color without laying out in the sun. I use it with the St. Tropez Tan Applicator Mit. It is fool proof and develops in about an hour. This self-tanner is great for those nights when you have somewhere to be and want to look bronzed quickly!
