As a skin care brand, we’re always excited to get started on our skin care routine and while our evening skin care routines can involve many steps, tools and products, our morning skin care routines have pride of place. Let’s get into what a good morning skin care routine looks like and which products you need to add to your list.
Step 1: Add energy
While some of you may bounce out of bed each morning, the rest of us need encouragement to leave the comfort of our own beds. First thing we do is spritz SPIRITUDE Energy-Boosting Mist around our space, a beautiful fusion of lemon, ginger and passion fruit among other Mediterranean essential oils to kick start your day with zingy freshness.
Step 2: Remove any remaining makeup & refresh
We’ve all been there where we’ve accidently left our mascara on or simply missed a bit before hitting the hay the night before. Take a little EASY ON THE EYE Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover onto a cotton pad, press on the eyes then gently sweep outwards to lift away any makeup left behind. Alternatively, this is a great step to refresh any gritty eyes from overnight in a soothing and cleansing formula.
Step 3: An easy cleanse
As it’s important to double cleanse in the evening, our morning cleanse is usually lighter and refreshing. A firm favourite at TEMPLESPA is GOOD TO GO Creamy Foaming Cleanser which is naturally light and nourishing but won’t leave your skin feeling dry and stripped. An alternative for a deeper cleanse is BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE Gentle Exfoliator which has a texture of a creamy scrub that cleanses and polishes in one.
Step 4: Time to tone
Sometimes toning is the area people skip the most in a basic skin care routine, but we’re here to change your mind (or go and read our Top Tips For Your Facial Toner blog!) Toners help lift away any remaining cleanser and help to refine and rebalance your skin again. We love to add TONING ESSENCE Essential Mist Tonic onto a cotton pad then sweep over the skin for instant refreshment, or alternatively spritzing onto our skin for when we need a hydrating boost.
Step 5: Serum treat
Like our toner friends, serums can often be a missed opportunity and we only want you to have the best morning skin care routine out there! These small but mighty heroes are highly concentrated ingredients that are designed to help your skin of the future as they work with your 28-day skin cell turnover. A great serum addition for your morning skin care routine is LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum, not only is this vitamin-c serum packed with brightening results, but it can help reduce the appearance of age spots and blemishes. Plus, the cool gelee texture instantly melts into the skin for a gorgeous treat.
Step 6: Moisturise & SPF!
Nourishing and protecting are the final parts in your skin care routine steps. Choose a moisturiser based on your skin care needs (have a look back at our Best Face Moisturiser For Me blog for inspiration) and apply it a few minutes after applying your serum, allowing the serum to absorb. A great all-rounder for any morning skin care routine is MOISTURE TO GO Balancing Moisturiser, working in harmony with your skin to hydrate the dry areas and control oiliness. Then add your SPF protection on top or if your skin is fairly normal, you may only need this step! LIFE DEFENCE SPF 30 Moisturiser is a broad-spectrum sun cream to protect against all the environmental elements we’ve come to experience in our daily lives.
