Morning Skincare Routine
You may have seen in this post that I'm starting to focus abit more on my skin care, in particular, setting up a proper skincare routine to stick by in order to improve my skin.
My morning routine is pretty simple. I double cleansed the night before (post to follow) so all I need to do in the mornings is wash the night away and wake up my skin.
And what normal person has the time to do a 6 step cleansing routine at 6.30am ? Ain't nobody got time for that!
I started this particular combo at the start of the month and I'm really loving it.
First off, I use a generous pump of the Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Energising Gel Wash and massage it into damp skin. I find this clears my skin of any overnight oil, leaves it feeling really nice and clean without feeling stripped. And the scent really does give me an energy boost - exactly what I need to get me going first thing in the morning.
I rinse this off my face with a nice splash of cold water to tighten everything up, sooth puffy eyes and wake myself up abit.
The next step & a great accompaniment to the citrus scent of the gel face wash, I moisturise using the Origins GinZing Energy-boosting Moisturiser. This gel like moisturiser works perfectly for me in the morning. It's light so sinks in to the skin really quickly and gives me the right amount of moisture to see me through the day. The scent is citrus too, which I absolutely love!
This creates the perfect fresh base for my makeup, wakes me up and is massively helping my dull, lackluster skin come to life abit!
