My Morning Routine - Summer Days

If you follow me on Snapchat, you know I'm always excited to wash my face. With my music blasting, and me just in the zone, using and loving my skin products The secret life of a skincare blogger, I get pretty excited!

My morning routine compared to my Summer Evening Routine, is much simpler and takes me less than 5 min. Okay let me say 5  to 10 min. My night time routine is pretty intense, so in the mornings, especially in the summer, it's usually just to remove overnight products from my face and just treat, brighten and maintain my skin tone through out the day. You know this SUN is no joke! the other day it was 93 degrees. I refused to go outside!

Anyway, the infographic below lays out the steps I take in the morning with the products I am currently using this summer. There are particular reasons why I use these products and thats because they have glow, brightening properties, which is very much needed in the summer time. Great Results I Tell YOU!

Step 1
Wash my face with a cleanser
In the morning, I chose to use a brightening cleanser with beads to lightly exfoliate my face because of the product I apply to bed (As seen in my evening routine). I use Aveeno because in the past it has really helped to clear and brighten my skin. I like the feel of the light exfoliation in the morning, it really wakes me up.

Step 2
Roll the ice all over my face
 I have read that over time the ice roller reduces wrinkles and blemishes, but what I love to use it for is to massage my face in the morning while tightening up my pores. When you tighten your pores, it closes it and reduces the chances of oil and dirt getting there to form a pimple. This also reduces puffiness and redness when I have sensitive skin, and allows my face appear smoother when I apply make up.

Step 3
Apply Toner
I recently fell in love with the Pixi Glow Tonic because it makes my face feel tight and it exfoliates while removing impurities in your skin. I soak a little into a cotton pad and wipe all over my face focusing on my acne prone spots. This helps to do a deeper cleanse into my pores.

Step 4
Press the serum into my face
 I added the Murad lightening spot serum to my morning routine because I want to get rid of the dark spots I have caused by acne. Since this product has lightening agents, I use it every morning. I take 3 pumps in my hand, rub it together and press it in into my face. I never rub it in always press. This allows it to sink in deep and then I wait for it to dry, before applying a moisturizer.

Step 5
Apply moisturizer
 I love this Murad hydro moisturizer because it hydrates my skin and  enhances the texture. It sinks in quickly into my skin and doesn't shift or mess up my make up when I apply it. You don't even need a lot, a tad bit goes a long way. Since the toner and exfoliator dries the skin, this helps to balance the moisture level, leaving your skin nice, glowy and healthy looking. 

Step 6
Sunscreen is a MUST
 Even though I get lazy to apply sunscreen on my body, but for my face, This is a must!! It took me a while to find the right sunscreen for my face that wouldn't give white residue, make my skin look too dewy or just make my make up slide. The La Roche - Posay is an awesome brand and sunscreen to use. Sits well on my skin, absorbs fast and funny enough gives my skin a silky look.

So there it is, my morning routine. I am totally in love with the results. I barely wear make up for the most part and my face has a lovely glow.
