My Current Morning Skincare Routine



Routine... a word we've been hearing a lot lately! I wanted to share my current morning skincare regime on the blog today. I've been loving taking the time to do a nice skincare routine in the morning as it brings a sense of normality into my day and makes me feel good! I think the lockdown has taught me to really slow down, take care of myself and generally up my self-care game.

Anyway, back to the routine. This is my everyday morning skincare routine for my dry, dehydrated and eczema-prone skin.



STEP 1: Cleanse
The first thing I do is cleanse my skin using the Nuxe Reve De Miel Face Cleansing & Make Up Removing Gel. This is a more natural lightweight cleanser that is perfect for everyday use. I don't think it's great for removing make up but it is fantastic for a general cleanse.

STEP 2: Exfoliate
Next up is an exfoliator. I've been using a chemical exfoliator for the past few years now and found that it works best for my skin. I did use a physical exfoliant for a bit and it really aggravated my eczema on my face. I really recommend making the switch if you notice anything happening with your skin.

The chemical exfoliator I've been using is actually the Aldi dupe for the Pixi Glow Tonic. I've used the Pixi product before and it is great but if there is a product that is cheaper and does the same thing, I'm all for it!



STEP 3: Serum
I've been using a few different serums over the past few months and currently I have a sample of the Balance Me Vitamin C Repair Serum. I really like how it is lightweight yet nourishing and would definitely be willing to purchase the full size once I use other back up serums.

STEP 4: Face & Neck Cream
For my daily face cream I've been reaching for the CeraVe Moisturising Lotion. I have talked about this product a lot lately but it is because it is the perfect daily cream! I love how lightweight it is in formula and how it nourishes my skin.



STEP 5: Eye Cream
Next is eye cream! I've been trying really hard to remember to apply eye cream so when I do it's been the Botanics Eye Cream. It's a nice easy eye cream, doesn't have any frills or crazy claims as far as I know so I'm just using it to keep the area hydrated and plump.



STEP 6: Treatments
The last step in my routine includes any extra treatments my skin may need. I've got a few that I've been alternating between, depending on how my skin is feeling.

DRY SKIN: Weleda Skin Food or Weleda Calendula Cream
DULL SKIN: Superdrug Vitamin C Facial Booster
FINE LINES: Argireline Solution 10%
