Morning Skin Care: Cleanse, Tone, & Moisturize

morning skin care regimenTaking care of our skin daily is the best way to keep looking fresh, fine lines from appearing and have smooth, soft skin. Having a daily skin care regimen doesn’t take long to do at all and is easy to incorporate with your daily everyday routine when getting ready in the morning. Not cleansing or taking care of your skin in the morning? Yes, I know…snooze about 3x, then off to work you go! Think of about it this way, during the night your pores accumulate natural oils and no telling what other debris. It could come from a soiled pillow case, your cell phone, or whatever else you put close to your face in the evening. 
Cleansing: Each morning, if your face is not cleansed before applying skin care products or makeup, the oils and debris from the previous night will be covered. This could be the beginning of some very yucky skin problems. Every morning your face should be cleansed to prepare it for your moisturizer, sunblock, & make-up. Save time by keeping your cleanser in your shower. 
 
Toning: After cleansing your face the pores are open. If left open, moisture can leave the skin, which leads to dehydrated skin.  Applying toner will also remove any other residues & help 
close the pores to prep your skin for a moisturizer. Closed pores has another benefit, it stops dust & other air born particles from settling in the pores which can cause breakouts or blackheads. Have your toner set on your sink next to your brush, it’ll take about 15 seconds to apply it.
Moisturizing: Moisturizer leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth,  and helps minimize fine lines & dryness. Apply moisturizer after the toner, while your skin is still damp. Gently massage the moisturizer into your skin with smooth upward strokes. (great for your elasticity) Have extra-dry areas? Then use a little extra moisturizer in those spots. Think of your moisturizer as your primer before your makeup.
 
A morning skin care regimen is not time consuming at all, especially when you think of the great things it does for your skin. Simply keep your products by the things you use on a daily basis. Before you know it, it will all be part of your everyday regime! Remember…Cleanse…Tone…Moisturize!
