The Perfect Morning Routine

26th July 2017

We know that waking up in a calming, gentle way sets the tone for the rest of your day.

And the same can be said for your skin. Your skin puts up with a lot of stress from external influences throughout the day - from the elements, pollution, toxins - stress from which it needs to protect itself. We need to ease our skin into the day and make sure we support it as best we can so that it functions optimally in order to do this.

Your morning routine is as important as your evening routine. If you’ve invested in a regenerative night treatment like our Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil, you don’t want to undo all the hard work your skin has done to restore itself while you’ve been sleeping. Follow our guide to what we think is the perfect morning skin routine...

Cleanse

Even though your skin hasn’t been exposed to the usual levels of dirt and grime it experiences throughout the day, it still needs cleansing. Your skin has been working away all night detoxifying, has experienced moisture loss through sweating, and needs freshening up. We don’t want to use harsh, stripping formulations though, so our Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is the perfect nourishing start to your day.

Massage

With its luxurious texture, rich with natural oils and aromatic with essential oils, Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm can’t help but put a spring in your step. Take time to massage the unctuous balm into your skin and inhale the uplifting scent before gently removing with a warm cleansing cloth. Skin feels renewed, has a gorgeous glow, and is ready to receive a layer of marine-charged moisturisation.

Moisturise

While skin is still damp, apply Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30. This latest member of the Pro-Collagen family offers all the anti-ageing benefits of the original formulation but now has superior broad spectrum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Because we use micronized sunscreen, the formulation maintains its light, velvety texture but offers heavyweight protection. It’s a wonderful primer for your make-up and your skin will stay beautifully hydrated, supported and protected all day.
