A good morning routine can assist with your skin and keep it healthy. A beauty routine should be put in place from an early age, so no matter what your age, if you haven't started caring for your skin, now is the time to start.
There are certain things you cannot leave out of your routine, this includes:
- Protecting from the sun
Cleansing is the first step and you will want to consider a good skin cleanser, such as the Obagi Cleanziderm MD Daily Care Foaming Cleanser. This cleanser is ideal for removing dirt and excess oils from the skin and will leave your skin feeling fresh and clean. If you have acne, then this is the cleanser to use. It's a natural exfoliator, so it ticks two of the essential beauty routine boxes.
Exfoliating is very important to your morning beauty routine. It removes all the dead skin cells from the skin, leaving your skin smooth and clean. You can use a cleanser that has exfoliating properties to save yourself valuable time and energy when rushing for school or work.
A toner is essential, especially if you wear make up or you have oily skin. The toner gently exfoliates and cleanses. A good toner to consider is Obagi CRX System C-Balance Toner, which helps to balance the natural PH of the skin, helping it feel and look healthier.
Every woman, no matter her age, should be moisturising her skin every day. The MZ Skin Hydrate and Nourish Age Defence Retinol Day Moisturiser is a great choice, complete with SPF30 to protect you from the sun.
Protect from sun
Always ensure, no matter what the weather, that applying a good sunscreen is part of your morning beauty routine. The harmful UV rays of the sun can cause long term damage to your skin while increasing your risk of skin cancer. Use a moisturiser with SPF or apply SPF daily for the best long-term results.
So many people make the big mistake of grabbing that large coffee in the mornings to give them the kick start they need, but coffee is dangerous for your skin and can cause your skin to dehydrate, which comes with its own list of problems.
The ideal thing to drink first thing in the morning is boiled water and mix that with honey and lemons. Honey helps to flush unwelcome toxins from the body while lemon is a natural antioxidant.
