For a morning skincare routine, I like something quick and easy. I'd rather have an extra 10 minutes in bed than spending extra time on my skin.
I opt for three products in the mornings. I like all three and it takes only a few minutes to use them. First I like to splash my face with cold water, just to wake me up properly. Then I'll apply a cleanser - Avene's Extremely Gentle Cleanser* is perfect as you dont need to rinse it off. The formula is very lightweight and soothing whilst it effectively cleanses the skin. Though its tailored for sensitive skin, it would work on the majority of skin types as it isnt oily nor drying. To tone, I use a spray, such as La Roche Posay Serozinc. I'm still on the fence with this toner but its really refreshing and it seems to calm any redness so its ideal to use in the morning. I just spritz a little over my face and use a cotton pad to remove. Serozinc is hard to get of hold of but there are a few toning sprays on the market, such as avene, botanics or its even fairly easy to make your own.
For a moisturiser, I like to use Liz Earles Smoothing Line Serum as a light moisturiser on my oily skin. With this, it can also be used around the eye area so I dont need to use a separate eye cream. This serum soaks in really quickly, smoothing fine lines and plumping my skin - with a heavier moisturiser I'd have to wait around for it to absorb but with this I'm good to go! After my skincare trio, I normally follow with a primer or makeup base before I apply my foundation. This current routine works well for me right now but I do change things up now and then, especially if I'm testing a new daycream or skincare product.
