Having a consistent routine helps your skin stay healthy and prevents constant outbreaks. It takes time to notice a difference when you introduce a new product, which is why it’s important to have a consistent routine that works for you. It took me a long time to establish my AM/PM skincare regimen which focuses on moisturizing and anti-aging to keep my skin looking youthful, and believe me, I went through a lot of products! Here are the morning and night routines I’m loving right now to achieve my skincare goals:

 

Morning

 

Step one: I’ve been using CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser in my AM routine. I lather this cleanser really well to wash my face gently, and my skin feels hydrated afterwards. Love that it comes with a pump too so you are not using too much of it.

 

Step two: After cleanse and a toner, I apply Olay Peptide Serum, which is fragrance-free and quickly hydrates and plumps my skin. Peptide is a great ingredient, especially when your skin needs anti-aging care. It is a gentle formula that works on all skin types and is easy to introduce into your skincare regimen.

 

Step three: My AM routine is finished with L'OREAL Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Cream SPF 25 to hydrate and protect my skin from UV rays. Sunscreen is a must in an AM routine, but I don’t want to use too many products so it is perfect to use a moisturizer with SPF.

 

Evening

 

Step one: After a long day of work or a good time with friends, I remove makeup with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and a Face Halo Makeup Remover. It’s so satisfying to see all the makeup and dirt being removed, and massaging with the makeup remover feels super relaxing.

 

Step two: After that I apply Olay Retinol Serum to take care of the sun damage and wrinkles. Retinol speeds up surface cell turnover, so it is good to apply after cleansing.

 

Step three: For extra moisture, I finish my PM routine with ROC Eye Cream and L'OREAL Revitalift Moisturizer. The eye cream comes in a tube that makes the application easy, and the moisturizer deeply hydrates and plumps skin while you sleep.

 

Remember, establishing your own AM/PM skincare routine is key for healthy looking skin, and understanding your skin’s needs and finding the products that best work for you is important! It might take some time to find your perfect skincare regimen, but your skin will show the results you want to see if you stick with a routine of your own.
