Morning Skincare Routine: One Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser / REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic / Juice Beauty Signal Peptides Firming Serum / Glotrition Two-Step Collagen System / Colleen Rothschild Sheer Renewal Cream / Juice Beauty STEM CELLULAR Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer / Beauty BioScience The Ultimate / Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Cream

I love make up and skincare products.  I always have.  I truly enjoy the ritual of taking a few minutes for my self at the beginning and end of each day.  I get a lot of questions about my routine and the products I use especially since I love clean beauty. So I wanted my current skincare routine and break it up into two posts: My Morning Skincare Routine and My Nighttime Skincare Routine.

My main goal for skincare are anti-aging.  Period.  Day or Night. I also make an effort to use clean beauty products.  You can read these posts to learn why clean beauty is important and shop my clean beauty favorites here.

I enjoy the process…and when you are trying to avoid injectables, it is a bit of a process.  The products I’m using all work very well for me.  My skin tends to be a bit sensitive and dry if I don’t use moisturizing products and over-wash and under-hydrate (both with products and water in-take).

These are the 6 steps and products I use in my morning skin care routine:

Currently, I’m using Love Organics Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser.  A little bit goes a long way with this gentle cleanser.  It protects and hydrates as it cleans with out stripping away natural oils. It is powerful enough to remove eye make up at night as well without drying out your skin.

Next, I use the REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic.  I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from this clean beauty brand from the UK.  This great toner helps to minimize pores and removes any lingering dirt and make up.  I love the light citrus scent.  Their primer is one of my favorites.  You can learn more about it here.

I follow the Ren AHA Tonic with the new Juice Beauty Signal Peptide Firming Serum.  I was one of the very first to try this product before it went on the market earlier this year.  I continue to see a difference in my skin. I’ve noticed an increased “glow” overall in addition to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines around my eyes and mouth, and on my chest and forehead. This serum is very moisturizing as well.

Then I use the Glotrition Serum.  This two-step collagen delivery system is part of my daily routine.  I use their serum twice daily and drink the Collagen Peptide Drink each morning.  The drink has not only improved my facial skin but my skin as a whole.  Gone is the dry skin that has plagued me on the back of my arms for years.  It is clinically proven to decrease wrinkle depth and I have to agree!  This Age-Defying Serum increases elasticity and skin density as well. Two pumps covers the face, neck, and decollete area.

Right now I’m layering daytime moisturizers: Colleen Rothschild Sheer Renewal Cream plus either Juice Beauty Stem-Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Cream or BeautyBio Science The Ultimate HyperVitamin Hydrating Cream, depending on how dry my skin feels.  Keeping aging skin hydrated is very important to youthful glowing skin.  As much as I hate to admit this, this is me and my over 40 skin.  I choose between the Anti-Wrinkle Cream and The Ultimate based on how dry skin is feeling.  The Juice Beauty Anti-Wrinkle Cream is rich and luxurious but not greasy so still perfect for daytime.  The Beauty BioScience Ultimate is very hydrating but a bit lighter and I love the fresh scent. Once the weather heats up for good, I will probably use only the Sheer Renewal Cream as it more lightweight and still very hydrating.

I finish with the Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Cream.  This amazing eye cream has actual diamond dust in it and creates a beautiful glowing effect. Hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates for fresh and glowing skin. I get so many compliments on my skin when all I have on it this eye cream, this illuminating primer and my favorite concealer!  It is truly amazing!

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.  I’d love to know your morning skincare routine and if you use any of these same products.

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
