My Everyday Morning Skincare Routine

Skincare is something almost every woman cares about.  There is no style to it- you want smooth and radiant skin- period.   In the last six months, I have had a major skincare overhaul.  My skin wasn't cooperating with my usual skincare and I was really frustrated.  My mom gave me a mini intervention and told me it was time to give my face to the skincare God: Dr. Dennis Gross.  (I'm kidding...kind of)

My mom's skin completely changed when she transitioned her skincare to mainly Dr. Gross, and mine now has too.  I am going to do this post in three parts: Morning routine, Evening Routine and masks/spot treatments so that it doesn't get crazy overwhelming and like a mass post.  Most products are Dr. Gross but I also have a few that I think perform better than the Dr. Gross comparable.

Everyday AM Routine:

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads: I will forever and always talk about these because they are NECESSARY! I chatted a bit about them in my favorite purchases of 2017 post here. Every time you use them your skin feels brand new and more firm. You can find them at Nordstrom here and at Sephora here

*when I have time/remember* I try to jade roll my skin for some extra circulation in between the peel pads and spray.  I love the way it feels, especially on my jawline.

Mario Badescu Rosewater Facial Spray: Call me crazy, but this stuff is the bees knees, and for $7, we can all afford to fit it into our routine.  It has 10293840 benefits. I spray it on my face and immediately apply serum, then cream.  It allows an extra layer of moisture applied directly to your skin and putting the serum and cream on top locks that moisture in even more #givemealllllofthemoisture.  It can also be used as a setting spray or as a re-setting spray mid day for an extra punch if you're feeling dehydrated and dry during these colder months!

Vitamin C+ Brightening Serum: I apply this to dry skin right before my cream.  I love that it has active ingredients that help to firm your skin and fix uneven skin tone. I recently listened to a podcast with Dr. Gross (via The Skinny Confidential) and he stated that Vitamin C is the best ingredient you can apply to your skin and even recommended taking Vitamin C supplements daily to improve your skin.  You can purchase the serum at Nordstrom here or Sephora here.

I've also been dying to try this  Drunk Elephant C Firma Serum I have heard amazing things about it so I just grabbed this mini version for only $23 to sample it out!

Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Gel Cream- My day time cream.  I love this because it isn't super heavy but still packs a major punch of moisture.  Heavy creams always make it feel like I'm wearing a pound of make up.  You can find it at Sephora here and at Nordstrom here!

  2. Nice post! It is really very important for us to follow a daily skincare routine as it helps our skin in many ways. People who follow a daily skincare routine faces less skin problems as compared to those who don't.

  3. Great share!! I love the valuable information shared, it's really very helpful. I would like to share a product which I had used recently and it had worked great on my skin that's dermology anti aging cream. It's a great product and I would recommend it to every one.
