Hey guys! It's that time of the year again, where I have to pay extra attention to moisturizing my skin, to prevent dryness. The winter this year has been pretty harsh on my skin, but luckily I have perfected my skincare routine!
After a lot of research and trying out different products, I found the ones that work best for my skin! Keep in mind, my skin type is combination, so these products may or may not work for you! Luckily, most companies have products that cater to different skin types, so be sure to do your own little research before you purchase any products! Okay, let's get started!
Morning Skincare Routine:
It's the perfect cleanser to use in the morning, since it's not too abrasive on your skin. I like my morning cleansers to be creamy, so that it's more moisturizing! It's 98% natural, with ingredients like wintergreen and palm glycerin, therefore less chemicals on my face! That's always a good way to start the day! It's lathers up really well and doesn't make my face feel tight or over-dry after the use. Plus, it has an amazing scent, and makes for a good pick-me-up in the morning!
Just about two pumps is good enough for a full-face coverage. I concentrate it more towards my under eye area and the corners of my mouth. It's super lightweight and goes on very smooth. It's got Retinol SA, Hyaluronic Acid and Glucose Complex which help in diminishing dark spots, and helps rejuvenate the skins' look and texture.
With a few pumps of this moisturizer, I massage it well onto my face using my fingers in a figure 8 motion. Don't forget your neck too! Once that's done, I use my EOS lip balm in Blueberry Acai, to prevent any chapped lips!
So there you have it! Four simple steps to achieve a well moisturized face, ready for make up or just as is! I assure you, if you are doing these four steps, the next few months of winter won't be too harsh on your skin! It only takes a few minutes, but it's absolutely worth it! What are some of your morning skincare products?

pss. All products mentioned above can be bought at your local drugstore, ie Target or Walgreens. I purchased the Lancome toner in a gift purchase a few months ago from Macy's
