Although I love taking care of myself and, therefore, my skin, I don’t want my skincare routine to be a burden. I am part of those who prefer to sleep longer and take less time to prepare in the morning. However, that doesn’t mean that you should skip on taking care of your skin.
You’ve probably heard it a thousand times : it is very important to do it on a daily basis. It will help you to avoid pimples, wrinkles, protect your skin from the sun, pollution, even makeup ! That will result on a more healthy flawless skin.
Another very important thing is to consider your skin type. A product will work differently on each person. Also remember that having an oily skin doesn’t mean it’s moisturized. See my articles about skin types and how to take care of each.
Personally, my skin is combination type but also pretty dehydrated. It gets a bit oily on the T-zone but when I cleanse it it gets very tight and absorbs any cream I put after to moisturize.
So, let’s go to what you’ve been waiting for : my morning skincare routine products ! As I said, I like a short, easy but efficient routine. That’s why I have been using the Herbalife skin range for many years. It is paraben and sulfates free and tested by dermatologists. It has vitamins B3, E and C plus many oils which are never bad for you. Also, I find the packaging very elegant and practical.
Step 1 : Cleanse – Citrus Cleanser
A cleanser will wash your pores from any “dirt” that could be inside : makeup leftovers, pollution, etc… That way, the products that you will apply later will be able to penetrate easily.
There are two cleanser in the Herbalife Skin range : one for dry to normal skin and one for oily to normal skin. I obviously use the one for oily skins. It has a citrus scent that I personally find a bit too strong. It has a nice gel texture that foams when you use it. They added jojoba beads for a little scrub.
I use this cleanser with my Panasonic electric face brush. After that, my skin is radiant : you really see that it is clean. As I said, mine also gets pretty tight (meaning : dehydrated).
Step 2 : Toner – Energizing Herbal Toner
A toner will prepare your skin for the serum/moisturizer. It shrinks your pores and further cleanse them. It also restores your skin’s pH balance.
Herbalife Skin Toner is suitable for all skin types. It also has a citrus scent but this one is very pleasant and refreshing. You can use it to freshen up your face on a hot day.
I spray it all over my face, leave on for a minute and then wipe the rest with a cotton pad. You can see the last residues on the cotton pad. Your face feels very fresh.
Step 3 : Eyes – Hydrating Eye Cream
It is important to have a specific cream/gel for your eyes because it is a more delicate area of the face.
This cream will help to moisturize the eye area and firm it up. It is enhanced with cucumber which makes dark circles and puffiness decrease. It has very refreshing smell of cucumber.
Step 4 : Moisturize – Protective Moisturizer SPF 30
To achieve that glowing and soft skin you have to moisturize it daily. It will prevent wrinkles later on and protect your face from the sun if it has an SPF.
Herbalife Skin SPF Moisturizer is a light cream that is also enhanced with many oils (macadamia, olive, sesame seeds…). Its smell is also very pleasant, a bit tropical. It has a light cream texture, a bit liquid, that penetrates easily. You don’t need too much product so it’s also economic. The packaging allows you to really finish everything that is inside the bottle.
They also have a great glowing version without SPF 30.
Step 5 : Bonus – Mask/Scrub
Every once in a while, your face needs you to clean it deeper. A scrub will exfoliate your skin and remove old skin cells. After that, you face will really be glowing !
I adore the smell of this blueberry seeds scrub. You really want to eat it ! I personally use it once a week but you can use it up to three times a week. I find it very efficient. People usually notice that my skin is radiant after I used it.
Purifying Mint Clay Mask
This mask will clean your face deeper and absorb sebum. Your skin will be smoother and radiant.
It has a mint and rosemary scent. The texture is very creamy which is very pleasant. It does not dry too much. I use it once a week and I also see the effects immediately.
Don’t forget to moisturize your skin after masks and scrubs. Otherwise, it will be irritated.
