My Morning Routine

I've been meaning to share my morning routine with you girls for some time now but I honestly don't know what took me so long to do it. Anyway, before I start sharing my morning routine I want to give you guys an idea of what my skin is like. I have a combination skin type which means that there are parts of my face that are dry and parts of it that are oily. I started practicing this beauty regimen two years ago since I noticed some dry patches on my forehead. At first I got rid of the dryness temporarily by spraying some facial mist on a kabuki brush and just dabbing that on the dry area of my forehead before applying any makeup. Eventually, I realized that investing in good quality skincare products will help improve the state of my skin in the long run.

I keep all my essentials in this cute red tote from The Body Shop which was a gift from my aunt.

Morning Routine:

 *Products are used from left to right

 Little Baby Sweet Macaron Lip Balm

I start of by applying Little Baby Sweet Macaron Lip Balm on my lips. My puckers are Sahara Desert dry and though this lip balm does not remove the dryness completely it soothes my chapped lips and it's able to heal any minor wounds on the side of my lips. It does have a slight stinging effect though.

 Tyro White Toner

I moisten a cotton ball (I usually only use half a cotton ball) with Tyro White Toner and apply that all over my face and neck. Since this toner contains alcohol it's more drying and it stings my eye and nose area. I also find it very pungent but maybe that's just me.

 Olay Age Protect Anti-Ageing UV Lotion

I apply some Olay Age Protect Anti-Ageing UV Lotion to both my face and neck. I love Olay and I've tried other moisturizers of theirs but I always go back to this one since I love the fact that it has SPF 15 and that it is an anti aging lotion as well. I don't break out whatsoever and it doesn't have a greasy feel to it.

 Black Beauty Hair Moisturizer with UV Protection

After applying moisturizer on my face, I do my makeup then I use a pump of Black Beauty Hair Moisturizer with UV Protection and smooth that onto my hair. This hair serum is a little heavy on my locks so I make sure that I don't use too much of it or else it will weigh down my hair and make it look greasy. It has a powdery floral scent which I like.

Rucy's Vanity Hand Cream in Lavender

I use Rucy's Vanity Hand Cream in Lavender during the morning when I don't have pole dancing classes and I really like the formulation of this hand cream since it moisturizes my hands without making them too slippery. I'm not too keen on the scent of this since it smells like medicine instead of lavender.

And just in case you guys are wondering, I do use lotion but I only use it 4 times a week 'cause the rest of the time I use Nivea In Shower Conditioner since I attend pole dancing classes during the days when I don't have school. 

I hope guys and girls with combination skin type found this helpful!
