My Easy Morning Skincare Routine

I’m one month into my new and improved morning skincare routine, and I’m already noticing softer, more hydrated skin – something that’s usually really difficult for me to achieve during these dry winter months. I’ve also been using Bobbi Brown’s products for well over a decade and she once told me I had incredible skin (best complement of my life), so I like to think I’m doing something right. As someone with dry skin, hydration has always been a focus for me, although using anti-aging products is something I’ve done since my early 20s.

Since I’m in my 30s, I feel like I should tell you that I don’t do anything beyond using products to take care of my skin. I did try botox once about 2-2.5 years ago – it was free and I couldn’t pass it up. It wears off after a few months so it’s long gone, and I’ve had maybe one facial in the last 5 years. That’s it. I have noticed more lines in my forehead over the past few years but that’s life, right?

Here’s a look at my morning skincare routine.

  • Please note that the rose hydrating spray does not contain any exfoliating ingredients and likely does not, as a result, speed cell turnover.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, although as mentioned in the product description, the spray “contains hibiscus flower, which provides natural exfoliation, speeds up cell turnover and helps skin maintain moisture.” Highly recommend it 🙂

  • Hi Danielle! Thanks so much for sharing this. I don’t have much of a routine at all, and would like to start. What do you recommend for a nighttime routine? Just repeat everything?

    1. Hi Amanda! I don’t use a moisturizer with SPF at night and have a few other products I add on, including a makeup remover towelette. I’ll try to work on that post in the coming weeks!
