Are your mornings a blur? Most people don’t have the luxury of spending an hour to get ready. You probably wake up, maybe squeeze in a workout, pack lunches and rush out the door with still-wet hair and half-finished makeup. But ignoring – and then trying to cover up – a dry, lackluster complexion doesn’t fix the root cause. What will? Spend five to 10 minutes walking through this morning skincare routine, and the results will speak for themselves.
Step 1: Wash your face with a honey-based, vitamin-C-enriched face cleanser
Step 2: Use a toner with ingredients that help retain moisture, such as aloe vera and hyaluronic acid
Step 3: Apply a lightweight serum that can help firm up the look of skin
Step 4: Try a moisturizer with probiotics to support a balanced and brighter skin tone
Step 5: Protect skin with broad-spectrum SPF, so you’re shielded from UVA and UVB rays
Step 6: Finish up with a cooling cucumber eye cream – especially if you’ve skimped on sleep
