Easy 3-Step
Morning Skincare Routine

Because skincare shouldn’t be complicated

We all have those days. You know what days I’m talking about! The ones where the idea of getting out of bed and doing your skincare routine sounds like the absolute last thing you want to do. You’d rather hit the snooze button and get a few extra zzz’s. Don’t worry — we know how it is because we’ve all been there. Those are the days where simple is always best. Don’t overwhelm yourself with an elaborate skincare routine and instead, make it easy for yourself so you’ll feel more motivated to stick to your routine.

Here’s an easy morning routine you can stick to: 

1: HYDRATING CLEANSE

Never skip cleansing! We know there is some conflicting information out there saying you can just rinse with water in the morning and if it works for you — amazing! But, for a large majority of us, cleansing in the morning is essential. It helps to deep clean the skin of any built-up dead skin cells, dirt, and debris that may have found its way onto your face throughout the night.

Our favorite cleanser is the Rice Cleansing Sorbet. Unlike traditional foam or gel cleansers, this oil-based balm gently cleanses and nourishes the skin at the same time. You’ll be left with incredibly smooth, hydrated skin that is ready for the rest of your routine. Plus, it won’t waste your time — the formula melts within seconds of contact with your skin quickly getting rid of impurities without the hassle.

2: BALANCE AND TONE

In the morning, think of your toner as your treatment step as well. This step is a must as it helps to re-balance your pH post-cleansing and infuse your skin with the hydration it needs to stay plump and juicy all day long. 

On lazy mornings, we like to reach for a toner like the Bitter Green Essence Toner as it has the balancing power of a toner and the potency of the essence so you’re getting the functionality of two products in one easy step. We love that this purifying toner helps to balance oil production, soothe inflammation, and provide the skin with max hydration. It’s everything you need for clear, radiant skin.

3: LOCK IT IN

Your routine means nothing if you’re not locking in all of that hydration with a moisturizer. There’s a reason why the foundation of routine is to always cleanse and moisturize your skin. It’s because this step is an important part of maintaining the health of your skin. Without moisturizing, it would be left parched, prone to dehydration, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sagging. Properly moisturizing will maintain your skin’s integrity and keep its youthful glow. 

When it comes to moisturizers we love reaching for those that are lightweight and grease-free but pack a punch of moisturizing power. The Salmon Cream is one of our holy grails as it provides the nourishment your skin needs while infusing it with anti-aging must-haves like salmon caviar, firming adenosine, and collagen-boosting peptides. It’s more than just an everyday moisturizer — it’s the key to healthy, youthful skin.

Pro tip: Don’t forget to follow up with SPF! It is essential that you protect your skin so no matter how tired you are be sure to add a decent layer of sunscreen at the end of your routine.

LONG STORY SHORT

💛It needs to be said again — skincare shouldn’t be complicated. The easier your routine is the more likely you are to stick to it. So, don’t make things hard on yourself and create a routine that works for you.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is considered the golden standard when it comes to antioxidants as it fights hyperpigmentation AND increases collagen production. Along with retinol, this is another ingredient that has been considerably researched and proven to be incredibly effective. The water-soluble vitamin provides your skin with numerous benefits including UV-photo protection, prevents transepidermal water loss, and reduces hyperpigmentation by inhibiting melanin production. If you’re suffering from blemishes, it’s a great source to even your complexion and give you a gorgeous glow.

Keyword: Antioxidant Power

You may have heard the term superfood being thrown around all of the time especially when it comes to fruit or veggies. From antioxidant-packed Acai to nourishing Avocado, what exactly are superfoods, and why are they so amazing for your skin? Let’s dive in!

What are superfoods?

Well, according to Harvard, this trendy buzzword first makes its origins in the early 20th century during World War l. Clever food companies latched onto the term as a food marketing strategy to boost the sales of banana. But, this term isn’t just about marketing gimmicks. Fast forward to the 21st century and nowadays this label generally refers to a food source that contains multiple health benefits whether it be for your skin or something as crucial as lowering your blood pressure. While it may have started as a marketing strategy, superfoods now have the research to back up their benefits especially when it comes to your skin.

Superfoods = Antioxidant Powerhouses

Let’s keep it real — almost any fruit or vegetable can be seen as a superfood and while that bursts the bubble on crazed food marketing that doesn’t mean these ingredients aren’t worth the hype. In fact, we definitely believe in the hype! We’re sure you know by now that fruits and vegetables are amazing for the body. Their high doses of vital vitamins and minerals are an essential component to a healthy diet but what we love the most about them is their high antioxidant power.

Antioxidants are one of the most important parts of your skin and food routine as they work to combat free radical damage. Our bodies (including our skin) go through a lot of external and internal stress on an everyday basis from pollution, cigarette smoke, lack of sleep, and even poor nutrition, and these can impact our body negatively by triggering oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress occurs when your body produces more toxins than it can get rid of. As they accumulate in excess, it causes your cells to function poorly and can even result in cell death. This manifests in your outwards appearance as premature aging, loss of elasticity, uneven skin tone and texture, and beyond. The most effective way to fight against these free radicals is with antioxidants as they work as your cell’s bodyguards neutralizing free radicals and preventing cellular damage. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t produce enough antioxidants to fight free radicals on their own so it’s important to supplement this by having a diet rich in antioxidant foods as well as applying antioxidant-rich products.

Our Favorite Antioxidant-Rich Products

The Bitter Green Essence Toner is the perfect antioxidant edition for any routine. It comes jam-packed with 33 different antioxidant-rich green vegetable extracts. The potent green complex contains a purifying combo of artichoke, broccoli, and matcha green tea that hydrates and clarifies helping to smooth unwanted texture and protect skin from dehydration. This powerful blend provides the skin with a mega-dose of antioxidants that will nourish and soothe while safeguarding it from premature aging. Think of it as your bodyguard from environmental stressors that’ll keep your skin looking young and fresh.

LONG STORY SHORT

💚If you didn’t know, now you know that antioxidants are a must-have in your skincare routine. Not only do they provide your skin with healthy doses of hydration but they also work hard to fight premature aging leaving you with an ageless glow.
