Current morning skin care routine.

When we talk A.M. skin care, SPF is only half the battle; we’ve got to clean our skin and arm it with antioxidants (then UV protection) to ensure we’re really ready to face the day. Winter is coming and skin tends to get drier, so load up on hydrating products to keep glowing all day.
This quick morning routine with Kiehl’s won’t take more than 5-7 mins but will surely give you the fresh morning skin glow we all usually look for. We have different skin types, please make sure, to achieve a healthy & happy skin, you should be knowing your skin type and use products suitable for your skin type.
SO- Sonal has Normal/Dry and pigmented skin, with Oily T-zone.

Step 1: I start my day by cleansing with my long-term love Kiehl’s Purifying Foaming Cleanser to remove all impurities.

Step 2: I then use a Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Toner to prep my face for the rest of the skin care products I’ll be applying. This one is the mildest and ideal for my skin giving the smooth, balancing and mildly astringent effect.

Step 3: In this weather, I need to apply a couple drops of Kiehl’s Clear Corrective Dark Spot Solution to treat my pigmented skin from further sun damage. Its activated C gives a smooth finish – think Instagram filter.

Step 4: For moisturizing, I prefer the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream as it’s light textured and perfect for my skin leaving the skin extra hydrated 24 hours. 

Step 5: Sunscreen – Prevention is always better than cure. I religiously wear Kiehl’s Ultra High Daily UV Defence with SPF 50 PA++++ to protect my skin from any further damage caused by the sun and it’s harmful rays. This new and improved formula with extended protection promises to prevent against 90% of skin ageing. A must in your skin care regime.

Step 6: I usually finish my morning routine by dabbing Kiehl’s Eye-brightening Concentrate onto my eye area. It visibly brightens the eye area while reducing the appearance of crows feet and minimizing dark spots. Absolutely love this product. 

RE- Resh has Normal to oily skin with T- zone being oily and sensitive.

Here’s my 5 step morning routine to win the day.

Step 1: Everyone should wash the night’s bacteria and pillow gunk from their faces in the morning. Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash gently lifts away impurities and dirt without stripping my skin of it’s essential oils, safe for sensitive skin.

Step 2: Followed by a toner, very important in my type of skin and since I have open pores it plays an important role. Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner claims to be suitable for normal to sensitive skin. It tones my skin perfectly without leaving it dry and even removes the last traces of dirt. Moisten a sterile cotton pad with facial toner, and apply to skin in areas where needed, avoiding the eye area.

Step 3: I then use the Kiehl’s Clear Corrective Dark Spot Solution that has brightening activated vitamin C to even out uneven coloration that can be caused by ageing, sun exposure, and hormonal changes ( this serum works with all skin types). It works gradually on your skin and you will see the difference if you use this serum on regular basis. This is my secret to make pigmentation a thing of the past.

Step 4: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-free Gel Cream. The lightweight, yet rich face cream is instantly hydrating- a total necessity for my always-moving lifestyle. It absorbs quickly and easily into skin and doesn’t feel oily or sticky on your face.

Step 5: My quest for a good sunscreen is almost eternal and Kiehl’s Ultra Light UV Defense is truly amazing which has anti-aging properties. The sunscreen doesn’t feel thick, and it blends out to a finish that’s not shiny or oily, and doesn’t leave behind a white cast.

Don’t forget to stay happy & get your piece of mind which also helps in giving you the inner glow
Hope you have a happy skin day!
