My Morning Skincare Routine

Hello lovelies, hope you're all well!

Cleansing your skin in the morning is an important step to take as it removes any dead skin, dirt or build up that may have occurred overnight.

So today I'm sharing with you my morning skincare routine.
These skincare products are what I like to use each morning that help to prepare my skin for whatever the day may bring.

Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser

I love using this cleanser in the mornings.
It contains grapefruit, orange and tangerine extracts which really help to wake me up in the morning.
Not only that, it makes my skin feel refreshed and doesn't dry it out.
It also contains other skin loving ingredients such as, african red tea which helps to slow the aging process, borage seed oil that acts as an anti-inflammatory and vitamin c which stimulates collagen.
Smells lovely and it's just a great overall foaming cleanser.

St Ives Even & Bright Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub

I love a good scrub which is the second step I like to take in my routine.
This one sits in the middle of the scale being a moderate exfoliant.
This one also has that citrus scent which I really like in the mornings.It brightens and polishes the skin with 100% natural extracts of pink lemon and mandarin.
Having acne prone skin, I like to use skincare products that contain citrus fruit extracts as they help to fade away spots that pimples leave behind.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturiser SPF 15

Even if you don't spend a lot of time outdoors, I would always recommend applying a moisturiser with an SPF.
Cetaphil's Daily Facial Moisturiser has a non greasy formula which is perfect because I really don't like that heavy greasy feeling that sunscreen can leave on my face.
It's non-comedogenic, therefore won't block pores and it's also free of fragrances.
Suitable for all skin types from sensitive to normal to oily.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream To Brighten and Depuff

If you suffer from tired eyes or puffiness then this eye cream could be just what you need.
It's formulated with coffee beans, panax ginseng, magnolia extract and natural optic brighteners.
It certainly does help to brighten the eye area and make you look more awake.
I like to apply it just in the mornings but you can apply it whenever you feel like your eyes need it.

Hurraw! SPF Sun Balm

This is the final step I take in my morning skincare routine.
A good SPF lip balm to ensure the sun doesn't damage my lips.
This has a Sun Protection Factor of 15 and has tangerine, chamomile and vanilla to nourish and calm your lips.
It's also packed with cold pressed oils including red raspberry seed oil, sea buckthorn oil and pomegranate seed oil.
