in today’s blog post I am going to talk about my morning skincare routine with you. I believe I posted in January about my evening routine and now I thought it is time to talk about my routine in the morning. If you want you can check out my evening routine here: My Evening Skincare Routine
I try to keep my morning routine as short as possible, because I think I am not the only one, but in the morning I just can’t be bothered for a long process. I just want to lay in bed as long as possibly and that means cutting down time wherever possible. So here are my skincare steps in the morning:
In the morning I use two different kind of cleansers. When I am under the shower I use the ‘Neutrogena – Visibly Clear exfoliation Wash Gel’. I feel like if I would use that on a daily basis it would leave my skin too matte, and I personally like a glowing skin a lot, but the cleansers helps with peeling of any dead skin. If I don’t shower I tend to use the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Fine Flowers Wash Gel’, as you might know from my ‘Evening Routine’ I love using this range by L’Oréal.
Now, I don’t do this everyday, more like every two to four days. I love exfoliating my face with the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Sugar Scrubs Glow Peeling’. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and it is not so harsh. If you want to know more about it, check out my review: L’Oréal Paris – Smooth Sugar Glow Scrub Review

Now to my last step of my routine – moisturizing. I am currently using a combination of two products, because my skin can use a little bit more moisture at the moment. I start by using the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Hydra Genius Moisturizer’ and then go in with the ‘L’Oréal Paris – Hydra Active 3 Moisturizer’, both are for sensitive. I prefer using products that are designed for sensitive skin types because more than once I noticed my skin is much better off with those products.

What is your skincare routine? Tell me or link me your routine in the comments. I would love to know about it.
But now onto my new and updated skin care routine, I won’t be splitting this entry into two, simply because I don’t think it’s necessary. But I do hope that you enjoy this entry and if you do, make sure to give it a thumbs up and feel free to share it on your social media!
My morning skin care is quick, because I rather spent time on my make-up and hair then on my skincare. To cleanse my face I use a wash creme based on clay, I use a drugstore brand called ‘Alverde’, it clears your pores and has an antibacterial effect. It’s especially targeting blemished skin and works against pimples and blackheads. Also I have to mention that ‘Alverde’ is a nature cosmetics brand, so everything they use in their products is way better for you than most of the chemical things other brands put in their products. I can just speak for my experience that my skin cleared up pretty good with these products, but as you will see later I also have other non-nature based products in my routine, you just have to find the right mix of products that work for you.
In the evenings I like to take my time with my skin. Firstly, I take of all my make up using a cleansing wipe. I use different ones all the time, but manly Garnier wipes are my favorite, especially: Garnier – Micellar Extra Gentle Cleansing Wipes But currently I’m trying out these: Garnier – Clarifying Cleansing Wipes for oily skin. To remove my eye make up I use an oil based cleanser from a drugstore, it’s literally the best I’ve tried so far. When all my make up is removed I like to give my skin a light peeling using Neutrogena – Visibly Clear fine and matte skin refining peeling. I also use the toner from my morning routine again after that.
