Great makeup starts with skincare. It’s an essential step in the process because the condition of your skin can impact the outcome of your foundation. Your morning skincare routine is especially important because—when done right—it helps you look revived and gorgeous during the day.
We know mornings can be busy – between rushing out for work and rounding up the kiddies for school. So we’ve compiled a quick, yet effective, skincare routine that you can fit into your hectic morning schedule.
Hydrate from the Inside
Drinking water hydrates your body from the inside out. It moisturizes your skin and keeps it looking vibrant and healthy. Drinking water first thing in the morning can revive your skin, as well as your body, and make you feel more energized.
Switching from juices with high fructose corn syrup to water throughout the day also acts as a form of skincare. The sugar count in these juices can cause breakouts, so be mindful of your juice and water intake throughout the day.
This step should actually start at night. Washing your face before bed removes dirt, oil and dead skin cells that have built up throughout the day. But going to bed without taking this step can make it harder for you to scrub those unwanted particles out of your pores. When you wake up in the morning wash your face to give your skin a fresh start and help it absorb the products you will apply for the day.
Hydrate from the Outside
Natural hydrating mists that don’t contain chemicals offer added hydration for your skin and give you a subtle, dewy glow. Rosewater is a great hydrating mist that can keep your skin looking healthy and oil-free on a daily basis. Just spritz and you’re on to your next step.
Forgetting this step can severely impact your finished look. Use a moisturizer to seal in all the hydration for the day and give your skin a smooth foundation for your makeup. Moisturizers with sunscreen are best for protecting your skin from the harmful rays, and you can save money by choosing a 2-in-1 product.
