My morning skin care routine

Having dealt with acute acne in my late teens, I have learned how crucial it is to take care of your skin the hard way (I have added some before images in the section below). This is why I now follow my skincare routine religiously! After years of research, I have landed on this particular morning routine that includes all essential ingredients for beautiful and healthy-looking skin.

CLEANSE & PRE-HYDRATE

As the skin tends to be drier in winters, I like to use a cleanser that is hydrating and also does a good job of thoroughly cleansing my skin. A really good one for this purpose that I have been using for a while now is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Cleanser.

To prep my skin for the serums and to give it that extra hydration, I like to use a hydrating mist. I have been loving this serum mist lately from Glow Hub infused with peach, coconut & hyaluronic acid, yum!

SERUMS & EYES

Weather you are a beginner or a pro, these two ingredients are a must in your routine - vitamin C & hyaluronic acid.

HYALURONIC ACID BENEFITS:

  • Promotes healthier, more supple skin
  • Increases skin elasticity
  • Anti-aging

VITAMIN C BENEFITS:

  • Brightens dull skin
  • Targets hyperpigmentation
  • Evens skin tone

What I am currently using: The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5 & The Inkey List - 15% Vitamin C + EGF serum.

Eye Cream: The Inkey List - Brighten-i eye cream

MOISTURIZER, SPF & LIPS

The last and most important part of the routine - hydration and protection from UV rays! Incorporating a moisturizer in your daily skincare routine is vital to prevent dryness and to keep your skin hydrated.

Applying sunscreen after your moisturizer is so so important before leaving the house, weather it is sunny or not. Our skin is vulnerable to sun's rays which can cause skin cancer and wrinkles over time. Therefore, it is absolutely crucial not to miss this part of your skincare routine!

This is the current moisturizer and sunscreen I am using:

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream & Sundance SPF 50 Sunscreen

For sunscreen touchups during the day over makeup, I use this SPF 50 face spray from Garnier

My lips get very dry in the winters, so for extra moisture, I use almond oil on my lips instead of a regular lip balm. Almond oil has nourishing properties which prevents chapped lips and locks in moisture for soft & plump lips. Almond Oil
