Simple Morning Skincare Routine

A complete skincare routine doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or time-consuming.  Below, I’ll walk you through my morning skincare routine using Lemongrass Spa’s clean skincare products.  Although not all products work for all skin types, the products mentioned in this blog work well for my 44-year-old, combination-to-oily skin. More of a visual learner?  I’ve got you covered!  Click here to check out my “Morning Skincare Routine” YouTube Video.

Step 1: Cleanse

I like to cleanse with the Prebiotic Facial Wash morning and night.  Lemongrass Spa’s unique prebiotic formula keeps the good bacteria on your skin while washing away the dirt and the bad bacteria.  This creates a healthy environment for new skin cells to generate. This cleanser is great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.

Other benefits include:

  • reducing redness
  • improving acne, blemishes, and teen acne
  • minimizing the appearance of pores
  • improving dry, rough texture.

This clear gel-like textured cleanser is packed full of:

  • prebiotics
  • antioxidants
  • sea kelp
  • coconut oil
  • chamomile extract. 

Step 2: Tone & Balance

Although this is quickest and easiest step in a complete skincare routine, it’s the step most often skipped!  When we wash our face, we often disrupt the pH balance of our skin (even water can change our pH levels!).  It’s important to rebalance our skin with a toner or facial mist.  This prepares the skin to welcome the serums and moisturizers which follow.  My go-to favorite toner is (can you guess?) the Prebiotic Facial Mist.  Because this product is so good for the skin, you can also use it to help with other skin conditions such as:

  • poison ivy
  • sunburn     
  • athlete’s foot

Just a few sprays directly onto the face is all you need to complete step 2 of your morning skincare routine.

Step 3: Anti-Aging Serum

If you are over the age of 30, guess what?  You should be incorporating some sort of anti-aging products into your daily skincare routine.  As we age, our cellular turnover rate significantly decreases.  Check out my blog “Cellular Turnover and Collagen Production for Healthy Skin” for more information on how cellular turnover works.  My favorite anti-aging serum is Lemongrass Spa’s Vitamin C Serum.  Great for all skin types, our Vitamin C serum is packed full of the following key ingredients:

  • plant-derived hyaluronic acid
  • Antioxidants
  • Vitamin C
  • MSM
  • Orange stem cells

Used consistently day and night, Vitamin C serum can result in brighter skin, evening of skin tone and a minimizing of fine lines and wrinkles.  I always say, “Vitamin C for everyone!”.  Apply about 3 drops onto the palms of your hands and press onto damp skin immediately following your step 2 toner.

Step 4: Eye Treatment

I LOVE this next product!  Most skincare products put forth results over time with consistent use, but the Probiotic Eye Gel is one of those products where results are evident almost immediately!  Don’t let this little .5oz bottle deceive you.  You only need 1/2 a pump for both eyes, so this pump container will last you more than 6 months with daily use.  This product has been a powerful tool in targeting the following skin concerns:

  • Dark circles
  • Puffiness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

It’s no wonder why the Probiotic Eye Gel is so effective.  Check out these key ingredients:

  • Probiotics
  • Caffeine and green tea
  • Pomegranate extract
  • Glycolic acid
  • Vitamin C

For an extra special eye treatment, keep this product in the refrigerator. Using a gentle touch, apply just a 1/2 pump of the Probiotic Eye Gel around your eyes, under the brow bone and just under the eye area, but be careful not to get too close to the eyes.  The serum will absorb into your skin on its own.  That cold gel packed full of powerful ingredients will wake up your skin brightening your eyes, tightening your skin, calming the puffiness, and reducing those fine lines.

Step 5: Honey Renewal Treatment

Do you know how amazing bees are?  I highly recommend doing a bit of research on the life of bees.  You will be AMAZED!  Anyway, Step 5 in our complete morning skincare routine incorporates the Honey Renewal Treatment.  This product is packed full of incredible bee byproducts including:

  • Bee propolis
  • Royal jelly
  • Honey
  • Jojoba oil
  • Antioxidants

Great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin, the Honey Renewal Treatment is a powerful tool against the following skincare concerns:

  • Dry skin
  • Dull skin
  • Acne-prone skin
  • Teen acne
  • Redness

The jelly-like consistency of the Honey Renewal Treatment is not sticky and will quickly absorb into your skin. Allow your skin to dry completely before applying your moisturizer.  You can also use this as an overnight mask and wake up with super soft, glowing skin!

Step 6: Moisturize

Once we treat our skin with all of the serums, we want to seal in all of those amazing ingredients with a moisturizer.  For a heavier moisturizer I recommend the Firming Face Creme which will target the following skincare concerns:

  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dry, rough skin
  • Dull skin

Key ingredients in the Firming Face Creme include:

  • Guarana
  • Gota Kola
  • Green Tea
  • Shea Butter
  • Tamanu
  • Organic coconut oil

Great for normal, dry, or sensitive skin, this highly moisturizing product will leave your skin dewy and super hydrated all day long.  This also makes a great evening moisturizer!

For a less heavy daily moisturizer, I also love the Coconut Rehab Creme.  This light-weight product will help with the following skincare issues:

  • Dry skin
  • Dull skin
  • Redness
  • Acne and blemishes
  • Teen acne

The Coconut Rehab Creme can be considered a “sports drink for your skin” with the following key ingredients:

  • Antioxidants
  • Coconut water
  • Squalene
  • Cupuacu butter

Step 7: Eye Creme

We made it to Step 7!  Now that we’ve sealed in the goodness on our face, it’s time to seal in the goodness around our eyes with the Repair Eye Creme.  I like to go extra heavy on the delicate skin around my eyes because hydration is crucial in the battle against fine lines and wrinkles.  Think of a grape vs. a raisin.  A grape is full of water and hydration making it plump with a smooth skin.  A raisin is a dehydrated grape, and it’s skin is dull and so wrinkly!  I want to be on Team Grape!  The Repair Eye Creme is packed full of the following ingredients:

  • Antioxidants
  • Cucumber extract
  • Witch Hazel

Great for normal, oily and combination skin, the Repair Eye Creme targets the following skincare concerns:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Puffiness
  • Dryness

That’s it!  I know it may seem like a lot of steps, but when you have these 7 products lined up on your bathroom vanity, you apply them one by one, and your complete skincare routine can be done in about 5 minutes.
