My Quick Skincare Routine!

Who has time for a long-winded skincare routine anymore??  When I get up I have to hit the ground running most days.  No wonder I look forward to the weekends even though my automatic alarm wakes me up at 7AM, smh (shaking my head).

After so many years of trial + error, I think I’ve mastered a quick, easy, and effective skincare routine.  The way I think about it, as long as I start off with a clean face, apply vitamin C + SPF I’m good to go.  In my opinion, those are the top 3 things I need to worry about.  So that’s exactly what I do.

I feel that with so many amazing skincare brands out there we want to dip into it all.  Especially if you’re a skincare junkie like me.  But are we giving these products a fair advantage??  About three years ago, I wouldn’t give a skincare product a full two weeks.  I was so curious I would dabble into so many other products that had pretty packaging or sounded cool.  Now, I stick with something until I basically finish the bottle unless of course it breaks me out or I have an allergic reaction – which is rare.

Another thing, I love mixing high + low-end skincare – just because it’s sold at the local drugstore doesn’t mean it’s any less effective, right?  We discovered a while back that companies make both high-end and low-end products, with many of the same ingredients and formulas.  Like Maybelline + IT Cosmetics or L’Oreal + YSL + Lancome, or how about NYX + Urban Decay???  Look into it you’ll find yourself still reading an hour later.

It has been highly requested that I share what I use in my morning skincare routine.  I created a reel video on my Instagram follow me there @ninamarieblogs.  You can catch all of my daily highlights there too!  A reel is a short video no longer than 30 seconds – a lot like TikTok if you are familiar.  A super fun way I like to share things like my skincare routine, makeup tips, my favorite beauty products + why, on, and on…
