A Morning Skincare Routine That Will Leave You Saying #IWokeUpLikeThis
Posted on 23 September 2018
Just because you're awake, doesn't mean your skin is. Starting your day off with care and intention is important--so why don't we have that same mindset when it comes to our morning skincare routine? If you're ready to love your skin and help it live its best life, check out these tips for healthy, glowing skin.
Step 1: Cleanse
The first, and most important step in your morning routine should be to cleanse and rejuvenate. Think of your cleanser as a sort hype man for your skin—urging it to awaken for the new day. Be sure to use a cleanser that is right for your skin type. If your skin is prone to breakouts, give Urban Skin Rx’s Clear Skin Cleansing Bar a try. This treatment is perfect for breakouts during that time of the month and has anti-inflammatory benefits that will leave your skin clear and acne-free.
Step 2: Tone it up
If your cleanser is the hype man, toner is its actual trainer. More specifically, it’s your toner’s job to help balance and further aid in clearing up your skin. Maintaining healthy, glowing skin is made possible using Urban Rx’s pH-Balancing All Skin Toner. Just apply a dollop or two onto a cotton ball and dab onto your face and neck area until clean. Your skin will look and feel healthier thanks to the pH-balancing power of your mighty toner.
Step 3: Moisturize
When it comes to picking a moisturizer, be sure to choose one that doesn’t clog your pores, but leaves your skin feeling buttery soft. Try Urban Rx’s HydraBalance Instant Moisturizer for an addition to your skincare routine that lets your pores breathe and your skin glow. Your moisturizer is like your best friend—proclaiming your goddess-ness and making sure the whole world sees it too.
Step 4: Protect
Last, but certainly not least—we don’t care what your best, non-POC friend tells you—you NEED a sunscreen. An SPF of 30 and above is sufficient and will get the job of protecting your beautiful melanin from the sun’s harmful UV-rays, done. Luckily enough, Black Girl Sunscreen was exclusively created with us WOC in mind. Using natural ingredients, this sunscreen is lightweight and won’t leave us frantically rubbing in that white residue upon application. Can we get an amen?
