Warm Weather Morning Skincare Routine

The temperature has been in the high 70s and low 80s where I live over the last week. Time to change over to the warm weather products! I thought I’d take a minute to share my updated morning skincare routine.

Origins Make A Difference Rejuvenating Cleansing Milk
I start by squeezing out a blob of this lightweight cleansing milk onto my fingers. I massage into dry skin and then use a warm damp wash cloth to wipe off. This leaves no residue on the skin, but my face feels super fresh and not stripped at all. My skin started breaking out after using The Body Shop Cleansing Butter, but after using this for a few days, it cleared up. So, I ‘m sad to say that I think my skin may not like that cleansing butter:( But I’m going to hold onto it and see if it may work better for me this coming Winter.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster
This has been the second step in my morning routine for sometime now. It is a boost of Vitamin C for my skin and I really feel like it helps brighten and tighten. It is a gel that sinks in very quickly and leaves no stickiness. For now, I am really enjoying using this as my morning serum step!

Clinique All About Eyes
While the Truth Serum sinks into my skin, I dab some of this eye cream under my eyes and around my brow bone. It is also a more gel formula than cream, so it is very cooling on the eyes. It glides on with a really silky feel, so it doesn’t drag the delicate skin under your eyes. I really like this! It keeps my dark circles at bay and also de-puffs. It doesn’t create any issues with makeup and is very light weight – that is why I use this as my daytime eye cream.

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer
Now that my serum has dried, I go in with my daytime moisturizer. Right now I am using this one by Aveeno for sensitive skin. It has SPF 15 in which is great. I don’t tend to use any other SPF on a regular basis, but if I were going to be in the sun a lot, I would add another SPF on top. I just use one pump and rub into my skin. This works great under makeup and doesn’t make anything slide around on top.

DermStore Lip Quench
I’m not too picky when it comes to my morning lip balm. I just like it to be buttery and very moisturizing, but not sticky. This one was sent as a free sample with my last DermStore order. To me it has a bit of a berry or fruity scent, and it gives the lips a nice sheen without being shiney. This finishes off my morning skincare routine. If I were going to wear makeup, I’d put that on now, but most days I don’t do anything else. By putting on lip balm at this stage, even if I were going to wear makeup that day, my lips would be nice and moisturized by the time I went to add any lip products. I never go without lip balm because my lips tend to be super dry, and that is never a good look!

    I've heard great things about that serum! Do you see a big difference?

      I do. I'm one of those people who never sees a huge difference with products, but I have noticed on days when I don't use it!
