3-STEP AM SKINCARE ROUTINE
When I want to streamline my morning routine or just need to get out the door, I love using these three items to hit all the skincare high points. A great under eye roller, face serum, and lightweight moisturizer and you’re out the door!
Origins No Puffery™ Cooling Roll-On For Puffy Eyes
This cooling, roll-on eye treatment is a morning pick-me-up that feels delightful. It definitely de-puffs and product packaging claims that yeast extract brightens dark circles, which is really all anyone is looking for on a Monday morning. After application, gently pat the gel into your skin and the product won’t mess with the texture of your concealer.
Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum
This vitamin C packed gel serum is an effective treatment that’s great for anyone trying to even out skin tone. It brightens, tightens, and protects. I have been using this serum nearly every day for four months (still on the same bottle) and my skin feels fantastic. Drunk Elephant is a skincare line that prides itself on avoiding toxic ingredients and according to their website, all products are “designed, tested and made in the United States.” For more info, check out my full Drunk Elephant C-Firma review here.
belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb
This moisturizer (which touts itself as an “ultra-lightweight gel-cream”) is worthy of its Bomb name. While planning my recent three-week European vacation, I was legit worried about how my skin was going to react. I get really dry and have at least one bad breakout when travelling basically anywhere. How was I supposed to handle planes, trains, and automobiles, and then show up camera ready for a family wedding? Aqua Bomb, that’s how. For AM use, I layered this over my Drunk Elephant Day Serum (see above), and then topped it with an SPF/primer combo. For PM use, I layered this over my fave Fresh Seaberry face oil for maximum hydration. It worked like a dream. I didn’t have a single dry patch or blemish for the entire trip. Aqua Bomb leaves my skin bright, smooth, and soft, and remains part of my regular AM skincare routine. belif is a Korean skincare line making waves in the US for its belief in high quality natural ingredients and herbal remedies. In addition and according to their website, belif products are “free of synthetic dyes, fragrances, parabens, mineral oils and animal origin ingredients.”
Hope these products make your morning a little breezier and your skin a little more refreshed!
Peace + love,
