I’m sharing my daily skincare routine with my favourite brand, Keihl’s.
Morning or night, it’s important to have a regular skincare routine. It wasn’t until the last few years I started noticing the products I was using on my skin and began opting for quality over price. After going through many trials and tribulations, from adult acne to dryness, I finally found a skincare line that worked wonders giving it the hydration it needed.
I’ll take you through my normal skincare routine and share what Kiehl’s products I use on an everyday basis.
First thing’s first, I wash my face with this super hydrating and delicate facial cleanser. It removes everything – from dirt to makeup – so I can skip a step and avoid those facial wipes. I also like that it doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight but instead moisturizes and soothes any redness.
Side note: when my skin needs a good scrub or an extra exfoliant, I use the Epidermal Re-Texturizing Miro-Dermabrasion cleanser. It clears any dead surface and gives your skin a fresh start. It will be hitting Kiehl’s stores in a month! Recommended use: once a week.
I use a toner to clear away any surface residue and it also preps my skin for my moisturizer.
Preventative maintenance is key and this powerful treatment helps prevent and reduces lines. I like to use this treatment around my laugh lines, forehead and around my eyes to prevent wrinkles. A little goes a long way so I use just a drop and lightly dab around the areas that need it.
Under Eye Cream
This eye cream is perfect for dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes. I just take my ring finger and lightly dab around and under my eyes. Again, you only need a little so this eye cream lasts me quite a while.
Daytime and Nighttime Oils
Morning: Daily Reviving Concentrate
This lightweight oil is perfect for adding hydration and gives that ‘dewy-look’ to my skin. It’s not greasy at all and I have had no issues putting my foundation over it.
Nighttime: Midnight Recovery Concentrate
This nighttime oil works to regenerate, repair, and replenish for healthier looking skin. When I wake up in the morning, my skin looks refreshed because I haven’t lost that moisture.
How I use: I use about 3 drops of the oil, place it on the balls of my hands then lightly dab around my eyebrows and under my eyes. Because of the essential oils, I love taking deep breathes in as I’m doing this. It acts as a destresser and smells wonderful.
In all honesty, these two oils are game changers. I’ve noticed a huge increase in my skin’s appearance and how vibrant it is – especially during these winter months. I never miss putting these oils on and even on vacation, after being out in the sun, these oils are the one thing your skin needs after facing the sun’s harsh rays. I would highly recommend picking up one or both and adding it to your skincare routine.
And for the final touch, I use this hydrating cream all over my face and neck. A little goes a long way, so only a dime size is needed.
The Finishing Touch
This last step isn’t always necessary but I love the smell and the feeling of this refreshing mist – especially in the morning. It’s cooling and leaves your skin feeling hydrated. Even if you were to skip all of these steps and use this mist, it would feel as if you put cream on your face. During the day, I’ll spritz this mist over my foundation and it gives a wonderful glow.
If you’re on the fence about your skincare routine or just want to make a few adjustments, I recommend visiting a Keihl’s store and talking to their skincare experts who can walk you through an ideal solution for your skin. After using these products every day, twice a day, I can honestly say I’ve noticed a remarkable difference in my skin’s appearance and feel more confident to wear less foundation. If a skincare line can give me that kind of confidence, it’s worth blogging about!
