Mornings are for coffee and quick workouts…

 not for complicated skincare routines.

First coffee, then workout!

I’ve had a lot of questions about skincare lately, so I’ll share my simple morning routine with you here.  My evening routine will be in a separate post.  Because I like to keep things short and sweet.

But I want to start by reminding you that healthy, glowing skin starts inside, with what you are putting into your body.  And then you can make it even better by using the right products.

On the busiest of mornings, I do two things….

Wipe my face with a warm washcloth.

Apply a serum…usually the Anti Aging Serum from Annmarie Skincare.

That’s it!

Other serums that I like include the Citrus Stem Cell Serum from Annmarie Skincare (formerly called Repair Serum) and the Vitamin C Serum from 100% Pure.

Now, if I have a little more time, or if my skin seems needy, I will take a few extra steps.

I might gently exfoliate before applying the serum.

Exfoliating removes the top layer of dead cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin.  This has two main benefits:

Skin looks fresher and younger immediately with the dead, dull cells removed.

Treatments like serums are more effective since they can penetrate better.

My favorite way to exfoliate is with the Ayurvedic Scrub from Annmarie Skincare.  It smells like a spa, and it’s so gentle. I also like their Kaolin Micro Exfoliant.

If my skin feels extra dry I will pat on a facial oil after the serum, but mostly I save those for the evening.

My favorite facial oil is Alpine Pure Oil from Telluride Glow.  I also like the oils from Annmarie Skincare, especially the Anti Aging Oil.

And if I really want to kick things up, I’ll use an eye cream.  Totally love the Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream from 100% Pure.  It smells like a cookie and is very firming.  This product is so reasonably priced I have been known to use it all over my face.

The reason I like these companies is that their ingredients are super clean but the products are effective and pleasant to use.  It’s scary how many toxic ingredients are hidden in some of our personal care items.

So to recap…here’s my routine:

Busy morning:  Wipe with warm washcloth.  Apply serum.

More relaxed morning:  Wipe with warm washcloth.  Exfoliate.  Apply serum, then facial oil and possibly eye cream.

So, can a simple skincare routine help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  Yes it can…it sure works for me!

You will be happy because these products are such a pleasure to use.  All of the ingredients are healthy for your skin, and a simple routine can make your skin glow, which just gives you a lift.  And a happy, confident girl with gorgeous skin is always hot!

  1. I totally agree that good skin comes from within. I don’t wash my face at all in the mornings and in the winter, I don’t always wash at night. I’ve started using just a mix of baking soda and olive oil a couple of times of week, and that’s it!
