Sadly, summer has come and gone and we are now one week in to the new school year. New uniforms, shoes and stationery have all been bought, and a new routine is back in swing after a relaxing summer. It can be hard enough to fit in your morning skincare routine when it is just yourself you need to worry about, never mind juggling it with the school run. This scene is all too familiar with our founder, Sue. Over the years she has nailed her morning skincare to a tee and can perform all steps in record time. We sat down with her to find out her speedy secrets so we can share them with you. Here's how she does it.
What does your morning skincare routine look like?
More often than not I’m in a rush as I need to get the kids in the car and join everyone else on the school run. If this is the case then I have quite a simple routine. I begin by cleansing my face using Circadia’s Amandola Cleanser I’ll then apply my favourite morning serum which is AQ Skin Solutions Active Serum, followed by Circadia’s Vitamin C. I then use ZO’ Daily Power Defence and finish off with K Ceutic by Dermaceutic as it’s really moisturising, packed with essential vitamins and contains SPF 50 so it’s a 2 in 1 moisturiser and SPF.
I have a dry skin so everything I use is about moisture, anti ageing and protection.
If you only have time to do one thing what is it?
I apply K Ceutic as it gives me a moisturiser and SPF in 1.
If you had all the time in the world, what would be your go to ritual for the morning?
I would add in eye cream and a serum. To be honest I only ever manage this at night so drag my other serums and creams up in the morning - not the best I know. I would also add a stand alone Sun Protector as this does add more protection but unfortunately time does not allow it. I would also spend far more time on my makeup but am not going to go there!
