When you think of skincare, you're probably picturing your extensive PM routine. You're used to layering all of your spot treatments and serums at night, which means that your AM routine often falls by the wayside. We launched our Essentials Trio to start your morning with a simple 1, 2, 3 routine full of supercharged ingredients that are gentle on your face and will leave your skin feeling brighter and hydrated as you start your morning.
CLEANSE: SUPER AMINO GEL CLEANSER
Our Super Amino Gel Cleanser is gentle enough to use both AM and PM, whether you're taking off makeup, getting rid of sweat after a workout, or starting the day off with a blank slate. Don't let the cleanser's lightweight texture fool you — it's packed full of 11 amino acids and seawater to help balance your skin's pH while nourishing your skin. It gently foams to lift away any impurities and oils so that your skin can feel squeaky clean (without the squeak). It's the perfect first step in your morning routine.
BRIGHTEN: CC ME SERUM
For skin that glows from the inside out, our CC Me Serum is an absolute must. Not only does it contain two forms of Vitamin C to spot treat dark spots and hyperpigmentation and brighten the skin's overall appearance, but it also moisturizes the skin with Squalane. Plus, it contains botanicals to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation while peptides promote youthful looking skin. We recommend using your CC Me Serum every morning and make sure to work the product down your neck — a pro tip! This serum is so super-powered that you won't want to give up once you add it to your routine.
MOISTURIZE: JET LAG MASK
Once you've cleansed and brightened your skin for the morning, your skin is going to be in need of a base layer of moisture. You probably already know that our Jet Lag Mask works really well as a moisturizing mask overnight or on a plane, but it also works as an all-over moisturizer for daily use. Apply a light layer all over your face with a little extra under the eyes to plump up an area that tends to look a little sunken in the morning. It not only helps boost your skin's moisture barrier, but it also lightly exfoliates the skin and encourages cell turnover to reveal your healthiest skin.
PS — DON'T FORGET SPF!
You've heard it time and time again, but it's worth repeating. Apply SPF. Everyday. We mean it. Sunscreen is one of the best products that you can incorporate into your routine to help combat signs of aging and to protect your skin from damage that can be caused by getting a little too much vitamin D. Follow up the rest of your morning routine with a layer of broad spectrum SPF (we recommend SPF 30 or more) so you're ready to go for the day.
Though you can definitely add more steps to your morning routine, this baseline of products is perfect to get you started. Your skin will be prepped and ready, regardless of whether or not you're wearing makeup that day.
