What should my morning skincare routine be?
- Gentle cleanse
- Balancing toner
- Antioxidant-rich serum
- Moisturize and protect
When you sleep, your skin is hard at work, repairing and rebuilding itself. During those seven to nine hours of sweet slumber, circulation increases, bringing nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood to your epidermis to help build collagen and repair damage. So, when you wake up in the morning, your skin deserves some quality TLC.
A great morning skincare routine will help your skin look and feel gorgeous all day. And we’re going to let you in on a little beauty secret — you don’t have to spend a lot of time to get that healthy glow. In fact, quality a.m. skincare is all about following a few key steps. Here’s a super simple morning skincare routine with steps to help you keep your skin young-looking and beautiful.
Step 1: Gentle cleanse
We’ve all heard the arguments for minimal cleansing, but skipping this step in the morning can leave your skin looking dull. You may have washed away your makeup in the evening, but any oil, dead skin cells, or other debris on your face will make it hard for your skin to breathe properly.
Another reason the ﬁrst step should be your facial cleanser: a good cleanser will provide your skin with ingredients that will tone and nourish as well as purify, leaving your skin feeling renewed and primed for another beautiful day! Skip the harsh cleansers and give your skin what it wants — a gentle product that deep cleans without stripping away natural oils. The 3 in One Fresh Cleanser combines powerful cleansing ingredients that won’t strip away oils with natural bergamot essential oil. Buy now and start your day with this deep pore cleansing product.
Step 2: Balancing toner
A toner is a must-have in your easy morning skincare routine. It’s also one of the fastest steps to beautiful skin. Choose a product you can spritz onto your skin after cleansing. If you’re looking for a toner that’s perfect for all skin types, a rose water facial spray is a great option. Mist over your face and neck to balance the skin’s pH and calm the skin after cleansing.
Pro tip: You can also use a rose water toner throughout the day to keep your skin refreshed and hydrated if you have problems with dryness.

It contains an innovative blend of crushed rubies and pearl, adding an extra layer of protection to your skin. If you want to add a game-changing product to your morning routine, this is it — buy now and try treating your skin to the unique beneﬁts of roses and rubies.
Step 3: Antioxidant-rich serum
Let’s face it — our skin faces a ton of challenges. Air pollution, environmental stress — our stress! It’s constantly working to detox, rebuild, and repair. That’s why this skincare step is so important for all skin types. With an antioxidant-rich serum, you’re gifting your skin with an extra boost of free radical-ﬁghting power. Antioxidants will help your skin stay younger-looking and prevent the visible signs of sun damage.
The best part? With serums, a little bit goes a long way. Put a couple of drops in your hand. Gently massage your face using a circular motion to increase blood ﬂow and work the serum into your skin. To apply your serum to the delicate skin around your eyes, dab on the product with your ring ﬁnger. After this, you’re ready for the last steps of your quick and easy morning skincare routine!
Step 4: Moisturize and soften
Before putting on your foundation, it’s important to moisturize and protect with a hydrating cream. Give your serum a minute to absorb into your skin, and then apply your moisturizer. Not only will this step lock in moisture, helping to keep your skin silky soft all day long, but it will also create a smooth canvas for applying makeup.
If you want to shorten your morning skincare routine steps, opt for a moisturizer that provides broad- spectrum sun protection. This way, you can use one product and you’re done. If you’re using a moisturizer and sun protection, start with your moisturizer and ﬁnish with your sun protection.
