A lot of us think a night skincare routine is the most important. But following a morning skincare routine is equally important as what you put in during the day helps you look your best. Ask any dermatologist, they’ll tell you that establishing a good morning skincare routine is the most important thing you can do for your complexion.
Here, 5 morning routine for a flawless skin:
Washing your face in the morning is essential to clean away any lingering nighttime bacteria, dirt or makeup residue. Rinse with lukewarm water; very hot or very cold water is drying for skin. Pat dry with a clean towel used only for your face.
A washcloth gives the perfect amount of facial exfoliation, never irritates skin and is gentle enough to use every day. Run the washcloth under lukewarm water and wring it out (so that it’s moist, not dripping), then rub it in small circles on your face, starting from your nose and working out towards your temples, forehead and chin. Not only will this slough off any dead skin cells, the massaging action will also help to get rid of any morning facial swelling. Bye bye forever, puffy face!
Start your day with a glass of hot water with lemon and honey. Hot water is known to help flush out toxins and when combined with lemon and honey, it’s enriched with antioxidants that help skin glow while giving you a Vitamin C boost.
Massage your face every day with your fingertips for 2 minutes in circular motion. This helps increase blood circulation and gives your skin a healthy glow. If you wish, doing it with ice cubes wrapped in some cloth will give you added benefits and instant glow.
You may not want to hear it, but early morning exercise is essential for gorgeous skin; it promotes healthy circulation by increasing blood flow and reduces stress. Get that heart rate up, and your complexion will have a natural glow for the rest of the day.
