Are you starting your morning with a little get-up-and-glow? Well keep it up!
Often in the mornings, it’s easy to skip the steps and head right for the coffee maker. But your morning routine is your skin’s foundation for the day and skipping it like removing a crucial piece of the puzzle!
“In general, morning products are geared towards protection from the elements and the nighttime routine is geared toward repair and rebuilding,” explains dermatologist Michele Farber, MD, of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City. “It’s therefore important to keep some aspects of a morning routine.”
But what about the order of products? It may seem like a no-brainer, but the order in which you apply your skincare products can make a huge difference. "The principle behind ordering is to cleanse your skin, open your skin so products can soak in, add actives on, then seal with moisturizing products," says Morgan Rabach, M.D., dermatologist and co-founder of LM Medical NYC.
Sweat, dirt, and oil can build up on your skin while you sleep, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts – so a morning deep clean is key. After cleansing, your next step should be exfoliating. Use a face scrub to help slough off dead skin cells, which as you know can build up on the surface of your skin and ultimately lead to the appearance of dullness – even more so as you enter your 40s and 50s. Combine these two steps into one with our SeeMe Clean it Up Exfoliating Cleanser!
Next stop: serum. Quite simply, serums are highly concentrated formulas that can help target specific skin concerns such as fine lines, and dry or dull skin. Our SeeMe Smooth Out Recovery Serum uses deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid to nourish and restore vitality.
Finally, lock in moisture and cap off your routine with a hefty application of moisturizer, preferably with SPF. Our SeeMe Beauty SPF Mositurizer is coming in the Summer!.
With this multi-level approach, you’ll be ready to seize the day and save your skin while doing it.
