The Perfect Skincare Routine For Morning & Night

Skin care can be so confusing. Cleansers, toners, serums, creams, primers, masks, and more! Where do you start, what do you need, and does order matter?

51824013_10218851831193032_5383866897106206720_n

To start, yes, order matters. For a product to be effective, you need to follow a sequence that does not negate the previous products benefits.
You wouldn’t put your moisturizer on and then wash your face, right?

Another thing to think about, time of day plays a role in your skin care needs! That’s right! Your morning skin and night skin have different needs to be met which means different skin care. Oh geeze!

Don’t stress! We are here to help simplify things for you! Team Poshtopia is trained to provide you with personalized Pampered Readings. Each reading is catered specifically for you! We have a basic guideline we follow, but we mix things up as necessary so you are getting exactly what your skin needs without too much fuss and (hopefully) zero confusion!

Right now, I am here to help figure out basic routine …

MORNING SKINCARE:
Your main focus is hydration and protecting your skin from whatever elements your skin will come in contact with.
We all know the sun and outdoor pollution are bad for your skin, but indoor pollution is too, so we need to make sure you are sufficiently protected.

1) CLEANSER
Your skin comes in contact with pollutants while you are sleeping and our pillowcases harbor dust and bacteria. Add in sweat and drool and your face is in serious need of love come morning.
If you are just getting started, Right Back at Ya Two-in-One Cleansing Clay Face Wash and Mask is ideal for resetting both oily and dry skin!

2) TONER
Toner helps reset your skin back to its most basic healthy state. It is a great prep for your morning skin care routine. Well Adjusted Face Toner has glycolic acid that gently chemically exfoliates dull skin layers. Lentil extract reduces the appearance of pores and beta-glucan adds needed moisture to keep your skin balanced.

3) SERUM
Using a serum with vitamin C is extremely important. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that will protect your skin against UV rays, brighten your skin, and support collagen production to help slow down the signs of again. You also want hydration via hyaluronic acid, lipids, and/or ceramides. These all protect your skin from weather-related dryness and the extra hydration will plump and smooth your skin. Perfectly Posh offers several serums that provide both vitamin C and hydration in 1 easy step. For younger skin I often suggest Never Grow Up Serum and for more mature skin I suggest Nothing Phases Me Serum.

4) Eye Serum
Impish Eyes instantly perks up tired skin and lessens dark under-eye circles with caffeine, cucumber, and CoQ10 serum.
We also have Cheat Sheets Under Eye Sheet Masks, and under eye mask for that extra dose of pampering. I really like to use these after watching a tear-jerker movie or during or after a flight.

5) MOISTURIZE
Once your serums and eye care are fully absorbed, follow with a moisturizer. Perfectly Posh offers several that are targeted for specific skin types. Be sure to contact me for a personalized Pampered Reading and I will help you find the right fit! In a rush? Moisturize 911 Face Crème is always a safe bet; a lightweight, aloe-based, caffeinated face crème that rescues tired looking skin.

6) SPF
You should always finish your routine with SPF. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, you need to protect your skin from UV Rays! Block It Like It’s Hot Face Creme is our lightweight SPF 30 face crème with blood orange and hibiscus to guard against sun damage.

EVENING SKINCARE:
Your main focus in the evening is repairing and rejuvenating your skin. Night is when your focus is on addressing your personal skin care issues.

1) CLEANSER
Make sure you are washing your face at night! Ridding your skin of dirt, pollution, and makeup will help your skin stay healthier and younger looking longer.

2) MICELLAR TONIC (optional)
If you wear heavy makeup, it is advised you give your face an extra wipe with a makeup remover after you wash your face. You may be surprised that your clean face isn’t quite as clean as you thought!
A Micellar Tonic, like Bare It All, is ideal because not only does it grab the deep down grim like a magnet, but it provides a boost of extra hydration. Natural ingredients like coconut water, prickly pear, apple, and radish root will leave your skin refreshed.

3) SERUM
When targeting skin care concerns at night make sure you have the right serum. Defiant Naked Youth Serum is excellent for aging skin and Impress Me Probiotic Pressed Serum is perfectly soothing for sensitive and irritated skin.

4) EYE CREME
For targeted eye care, Perfectly Posh offers 2 eye cremes. Defiant Uplifting Eye Creme is an age-defying eye crème that helps diminish puffiness, dark circle, and crows feet around the eyes.
Prize on the Eyes Eye Crème is a gentle, but decadent eye crème that soothes the delicate skin around your eyes.

5) MOISTURIZE
At night, if needed, you can use a moisturizer that’s richer than what you would typically use in the morning. All I’ve Avo Wanted is an intensely nourishing face mask with avocado oil that you can wear overnight! If you don’t need a heavier moisturizer, use the same moisturizer you use in the morning.
