//7 Steps for Making the Most of Your Morning Skincare Routine

Sometimes having a good day requires you to start it out right. This can be particularly difficult since most people are in a rush every morning just trying to get out the door on time. But for those women who take their time to get ready, their day usually goes a lot better.

It all starts with the morning skincare routine, and depending on who you ask, you’ll likely get different opinions about what you should do and what products you should use. No matter what’s being said, there are a number of steps you should take that most people will agree with.

Here are some of guidelines to make the most of your morning skincare routine.

1. Preparing

Remove Makeup the Night Before

As is usually the case, a key to a good routine has everything to do with how you prepare for it. For a morning skincare routine, what you do the night before can make the whole process go a lot more smoothly.

Be sure to wash your skin before going to bed, removing the makeup you wore from the day. There are so many good products to look at for this, but pay attention to your skin type and ingredients they contain. An effective wash the night before will keep your pores unclogged and prepare it for the day ahead.

2. Shower Steam

Once you’re up in the morning and taking a shower, use the steam from the hot water to help clear up your pores. The steam not only helps wake you up, it rejuvenates your skin before you proceed with the rest of your morning routine. The best way to use the steam is by holding a steamy wash cloth up close to your face. Even if you don’t shower in the morning, you should at least wash your hands to get rid of bacteria.

3. Cleansing

Facial Cleanser

It’s now time to clean your face. Cleansing your skin is necessary to remove impurities from your pores, which could lead to breakouts. To apply the cleanser, use circular motions by gently massaging it into your skin. This will leave your skin with a healthy glow. The cleansing process should take several minutes, giving the cleanser enough time to work. Rinse it off with cool water, and dry by patting your skin with a clean towel. Don’t rub your skin dry; it could cause further irritation.
