Good morning. In this post, I’ll take you through my springtime morning
routine and talk about how it differs from my winter and nighttime routine.

I always start my mornings between 7 and 7.30 by sitting down with a big
cup of coffee while my children have breakfast. After helping them get
ready for school, I check my emails and my to-do list for the day in my
calendar while I eat. Then, it’s time to get ready for the day. I usually
shower in the morning, whereafter I do my skincare and haircare routine. I
always cleanse my skin thoroughly also in the morning to have a clean and
fresh surface to work with when I apply my skincare products. Taking
some time form myself and really go through my routines mindfully, is
one of the benefits I have working from home, that I’m sure many of us
have experienced now during the past year.

During the day, my main focus for my skin is to protect it, retain moisture
and create a nice, radiant complexion. In the evenings, my focus is on
nourishment, repair, strengthen and renewal.
We know that 80% of skin damage is due to solar radiance and pollution.
It creates lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin surface, collagen
degration and hyperpigmentation. That is why I want to emphasize the
importance of using sun protection every day and up the ante for spring and summer when the radiance is higher and stronger.

After cleansing I’m now quite into applying Hylau B5 serum to my skin to
give me that intense moisture I need, especially if I spend more time in the
sun. The serum is a clear gel that’s easy to apply, absorbs quickly into the
skin and makes the skin feel smooth and soft. It’s also repairing and
replumping, which makes it perfect to use for nighttime as well. I love it
when I can use the same serum both day and night. The simpler the better.

When the serum is all absorbed into my skin, I apply the newly launched
La Roche Posay Anthelios age correct cream. It’s La Roche Posays first
hybrid product with the combination of anti-aging day cream combined
with high sun protection, spf 50.  It works to reduce signs of aging in just 4
weeks and improves skin elasticity. I’ve always used day creams with spf
but find that many products seldom have a high enough spf to really make
me feel secure in the sun. This cream feels smooth and goes well under
makeup. It has the benefits of protecting while nourishing and helps fight
the skin from aging.

I love to spend time out in the sun and plan to do so also this summer but
making sure I protect my skin the best I can has been one of the most
important realizations I’ve had when it comes to taking care of my skin.
It’s the most important thing and first step I teach my children when it
comes to skin care. Hoping to give them good knowledge and tools to help
them care for themselves.

Do you find it important to use sun protection every day?

I have found a new La Roche Posay favorite that is launching now! The La Roche Posay Pure Vitamin C10 serum has become an essential part of my skin care routine. If you are unfamiliar with what Vitamin C does for the skin or haven’t used Vitamin C serum before, I suggest you continue reading.

Little did I know about what a little jar of glass can do until I tried this serum and let me tell you I have tried a lot. In all honesty, I opened it like every other new beauty product I try, which I do quite often due to it being an essential part of my job. I applied it and enjoyed the nice scent it has, and the smoothens it gave, but didn’t have time to reflect more over it, knowing it usually takes weeks or even months to get any visible results from new skincare products. However, just a couple days after I looked myself in the mirror to get started with my makeup routine when I realized I had a wonderful new glow I wasn’t familiar with from before. This La Roche Posay Pure Vitamin C10 serum is seriously insane because of the instant glow it gives without being sticky or wet and has given me something completely new I didn’t know existed skincare -wise.

The serum best suits skin that has lost its natural glow or for us who want a lot of glow. It helps to renew the skin because of its unique combination of ingredients that contains 10% Vitamin C and softly peeling salicylic acid.  Vitamin C helps to protect the skin against free radicals that comes from for example pollution and sunlight, and it’s perfect to use if you want to fight signs of aging. It helps wrinkles and fine lines; the skin feels smoother and more hydrated and it gives an incredible radiant glow – instantly! Please head over to my stories to see my skin completely makeup and filter free on film, here!

La Roche Posay is a pharmacy brand suited for sensitive skin, recommended by dermatologists. The Pure Vitamin C10 serum also contains neurosensine, My skin was actually really dry and felt tight just a week ago, so the effect has been quite immediate.

I use this serum as a part of my skincare routine. Serums are concentrated goodies for the skin so layering up on what your skin needs is totally ok and something I do but remember to check if your serums are ok to combine. Apply the serum on a cleansed face and neck avoiding the eye area and always remember to wear sunscreen on top. The clear serum smells fresh, feels smooth with a gel-like consistent leaving my skin feeling calm and soft. I have other favorites by La Roche Posay as well, but this serum is for sure in my top 3!
