Since posting my nighttime routine I've received a lot of questions about what a morning skincare routine would involve.
So I decided to make a quick tutorial for you on the techniques and skincare products that I use to keep my skin well hydrated and plump for the long day ahead of me.
Morning Skincare Routine Steps
Step 1 - Scrub/Mask
For the first step, I start by cleansing and exfoliating my skin with a scrub/mask.
You can wash your face, but I like to clean and rinse of the mask while I take a shower.
Step 2 - Hydrating Toner
After my shower, while my skin is damp, I apply a toner by pressing it into my skin.
Step 3 - Apply A Serum
Mixing a booster with a serum helps to augment the serum when I use it around my eyes.
Step 4 - Moisturizer
This moisturizer contains Swissline's signature skincare ingredients Madecassoside® that is derived from a plant called Centella Asiatica, and Ectoin which is an enzyme produced by microorganisms that thrive in extreme heat and cold weather conditions.
When my skin feels a bit tired, I like to add a few drops of a beauty oil to the moisturizer.
Step 5 - My Hydration Sandwich
To add an extra dose of hydration I like to add a hydration sandwich which involves re-applying the hydrating toner used in Step 2 over the moisturizer.
Step 6 - Eye Cream
Next I like to apply an eye cream that is ultra hydrating for my eye area.
Step 7 - Sunscreen
Finally I like to incorporate a sunscreen when I do my makeup routine. For this last step I use a product like Ilia's tinted serum and sunscreen in one.
