The Perfect A.M. Skincare Routine

The wonderful world of skincare can be a confusing place. While everyone is raving about the hot new product that just launched, sometimes you just have to go back to the basics: the products you need so you can get on with your life (and dare we say… Live Bright™ 😉 ). 

So friends, whether you’re new to all of this or just like to keep things simple, we’re going back to the basics today with the three products you need in your A.M. routine.

Step 1: Cleanser

The first thing you need is a good cleanser to wash off any excess oil, makeup and dirt, plus get your skin squeaky clean. The right cleanser is going to depend on your skin type! If you have dry skin, opt for a gentle, non-foaming cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. If your skin is on the oilier side, a foaming cleanser with ingredients like tea tree oil or salicylic acid will help unclog pores and regulate oil production. 

Step 2: Moisturizer

After cleansing, the next thing we want to do is rebalance the skin’s protective barrier. This is where your moisturizer comes in! A couple of things to consider when choosing the right one for you is your skin type (of course!) but also the climate: Where you live, and what season we’re in, can help you determine a moisturizer that best suits your skin. If you have dry skin or live in a dry climate, you may want to opt for a moisturizer that is rich and ultra hydrating. (Pro tip: Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid!) For oilier skin types or those humid summer months, you may want to consider a moisturizer that’s non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores. Now, here’s the sunniest way to moisturize: Wearing a moisturizer with SPF!

The more SPF you can incorporate into your routine, the more likely you’ll be to have optimal protection from UV rays.

Superscreen Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 is an ultra hydrating moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF protection against UVA/UVB rays and infrared radiation, plus it helps filter blue light and pollution. Also, this moisturizer is non-comedogenic so it’s great for acne-prone skin!

Step 3: SPF

The last and most important step of your morning routine is SPF! Up to 90% of the signs of aging come from the sun, which is why it’s so important to build a habit of wearing SPF every day. Just like brushing your teeth or washing your hands!

Wearing SPF can help prevent a whole spectrum of problems beyond aging like hyperpigmentation, dark circles, sun spots and more! 

It’s not always easy to find your perfect SPF, but we’re making it easier than ever with Every. Single. Face. Watery Lotion SPF 50. For someone who’s never tried a daily SPF before, Every. Single. Face. is the perfect place to start. This is a universal, undetectable SPF that was made for all skin types, tones and routines. It has a lightweight, cool, refreshing application and blends in completely clear, leaving no white cast! Plus, it’s water- and sweat-resistant for up to 40 minutes. 

So go on and build your routine. And as always, don’t forget your SPF!
