A simplified morning routine

simpleskincare

Most days I don't even leave the house because I have a 3 month old baby and he's been my full-time job right now. I used a very simple skincare routine while I was pregnant and now I've carried that same skincare philosophy over to my current routine (also because I have less time to get ready in the morning!) And a simplified skincare routine has definitely been working for me because I've stayed (mostly) blemish free!

I love to start off any skincare routine (morning or night) with a spray. My current favorite is the Kiehl's Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Mist. The spray is really even and nice. I hate the feeling of dry skin on my face or having my face feel tight so this spray really locks in some moisture before I apply the rest of my skincare.

Next for added moisture I like to use the belif hungarian water essence. This little guy packs in a lot of hydration and acts like a drink for my dry skin. It's a lightweight gel texture that feels really nice to apply. I like applying it in the morning because makeup still sits beautifully on top. And finally I lock in those 2 products with a moisturizer. Currently I've been using the REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream. I don't exactly love the texture of this product. It's kind of thick at first but it does blend into the skin alright. It's a bit more on the creamy side whereas I prefer more gel like products. I do like that it's great for sensitive skin and that it's fortified with a combination of powerful antioxidants to help hydrate my face.
