I love my morning skincare routine. Usually I rush it if I’m heading out to an early meeting but being at home means I can make it a bit of an at-home pampering session- unless I have a toddler shouting at me to hurry up, which often happens. I’ve worked with some dermatologists in the past and I’ve always remembered the advice that the fewer ingredients in skincare, the better. Walmart have a really good selection of dermatologically tested brands so you know that what you’re putting on your face is approved by those who know. Our skin reacts to stress more than we realise so it’s especially important to try and use products that are gentle, now more than ever. See my morning skin routine below and shop the best products for tired and stressed skin.
Remove any left over makeup
Obviously I remove all my makeup before I go to bed but I still like to use a bit of this micellar cleanser on my eyes in the morning to get rid of any leftover mascara. A few drops on a cotton wool bud is all you need- this one is the best in the business. You wouldn’t believe how much my makeup artist loves it!
Good for sensitive skin, a foaming cleanser is much more gentle than a scrub. It’s also totally fragrance free so you can use it over your eyes. Use two pumps of this with warm water, don’t forget the neck (Mum’s advice) and pat dry with a towel.
French skincare is some of the best in the world and this moisturiser is the lightest I’ve found. There’s also an intense version of this if your skin is feeling particularly dry.
Even though it isn’t hot and even though you’re inside most of the time, an SPF is still essential protection. I love this one as it’s not too thick but still provides 30 SPF for the face, neck, ears and hands.
The last step of the morning really helps wake me up and helps all the products settle on my skin. It’s also a really good refresher throughout the day if your skin feels tired or stressed.
