I love sharing my favorite ways to wake your skin up in the morning. Since I have been trying to take better care of my health, I decided it was time to take better care of my skin too.
Regardless of whether I am traveling, or if I am in the comfort of my own home, keeping my face clean and healthy is important to me. Yes — there are probably a ton of ways that you can do this, but for me, there are 3 that really make a difference in my morning routine.
3 Ways to Wake Your Skin Up
#1 Dove White Beauty Bar
The Dove White Beauty Bar is my first stop in the morning. It is not a soap so it doesn't strip my skin like a normal bar of soap would do.
As the #1 Dermatologist recommended bar, Dove White Beauty Bar contains DEFI technology, a unique blend of mild cleansers, and 1⁄4 moisturizing cream for soft, smooth and more radiant skin.
This helps me beat the harsh winter weather that can wreak havoc on beautiful skin. I fight it off by cleaning my skin with Dove White Beauty Bar which has natural lipids that help replenish the skin.
#2 Lemon Essential Oil
I love essential oils. I discovered them last year and have been really spending more and more time learning about their health benefits as well as adding them to my beauty routine.
Lemon essential oil gets the circulation going in your blood vessels and such, so I add about 3 drops to my facial cleanser in the morning.
Not only does it wake your skin up, but it also softens as well.
While I am cleaning my skin with Dove White Beauty Bar every morning, I just add a few drops into the palm of my hand and rub it in.
Because of the gentleness of this cleansing bar, it doesn't dry my skin out like other facial cleansing bars. The best part though is that this is such a mild cleanser, that over time it can also brighten your skin tone — and can be used on your whole body and not just your face.
#3 Facial Scrubs
I make my own facial scrubs as well. I shave some of the Dove Beauty Bar into a jar with epsom salt and my favorite Lemon Essential Oil.
Twice a week, I use the facial scrub as a way to remove any excess dried skin that has been left behind. The Dove Beauty Bar comes in and cleanses and removes any excess dirt or makeup that might have been left behind.
Now, that you have my 3 favorite ways to cleanse and wake up my skin in the morning, how do you wake up your skin?
The Dove White Beauty Bar is available at drugstores –in a 2-bar pack and has a suggested retail price of $3.79. For the kind of skin this offers, I think that price is perfect, don't you?
