Hello everyone and welcome back to The Selfish Column. Thank you for stopping by to the new and revamped Selfish Column, and if this is your first time here welcome, welcome, WELCOME!!! Hope you’re liking what you see so far. As I write this article the snow is falling outside and I am sipping on a warm cup of Bailey’s and coffee. Calgary never fails to amaze me with the early snow falls each year. But were not here to talk about the weather are we? I am not here to provide you with the generic get me out of here type of conversation. Cause for one I like you and would love for you to stay.

Today’s topic is all about skincare and primarily my morning skincare routine. Mornings are usually the toughest for me, I can never get my “ish” together most days of the week. I have become a professional with my nighttime routine so it is only fair I give the mornings a little love. When it comes to mornings, I am always looking for something that is effective, quick and easy. Something that does the job without it having to take to much of my time. More importantly something that is affordable, consistent and attainable.

 

Aveeno: Cream Cleanser with Salicylic Acid

Aveeno: Cream Cleanser with Salicylic Acid

I find myself reaching for this cleanser for both morning and night. The consistency and richness of this cleanser gets deep into your skin and takes off all the unnecessary dirt. If you are a person that is looking for something to help with skin tone and texture I would recommend trying this bad boy out. This cleanser also has salicylic acid in the ingredients which helps with acne, whitehead, blackhead, and pores. If you are a person that struggle with any of those mentioned above, finding products with salicylic acid as component is a great start.

 

Aveeno: Positively Radiant Exfoliator

The reason why I use this exfoliating scrub in the morning is because of its brightening effect. Nothing is worst than waking up in the morning and having that dull skin look… especially in the winter months. I live in one of the driest city in Canada, and let me tell you it doesn’t matter what you do, you can’t avoid it. This scrub also helps with skin tone and texture for those that struggle with achieving even skin. The added soy extract give the exfoliator a gentle formula that makes it great for everyday use.  Soy is one those natural plant that has antioxidant and helps with problems such as uneven tone in the skin.

I first fell in love with this toner after a friend recommended to me years ago. This toner bring the life back to my skin and makes it feel fresh and youthful after one swap. The toner has soy extract which assist in providing antioxidant and moisture to the skin. This product is alcohol free, oil free, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic. This toner along with accompanying cleanser and daily scrub exfoliating is the perfect combination for brightening and giving you radiant skin for the morning.

 

L’Oreal: Hydro-Genius Moisturizer

The last product is of course a daily moisturizer. Aside from your SPF and sunscreen regimen, its also important to have a daily moisturizer for your specific skin type. I have oily to normal skin and my problem area is most definitely the T-Zone. My nose is the first to get oily and this can be super frustrating when your wearing makeup. Finding products that can target my oily problem is very important. The Hydro-Genius Moisturizer is gentle, hydrating, and perfect for the everyday use. The line provides a moisturizer for oily skin and dry skin types. I love the hydration it brings to my skin!!!
