Your Effortless 3-Step Morning Skincare Routine
You’ve seen my kind before: I’m the girl sprinting to my train, to-go cup of coffee spilling over one hand and breakfast in the other. I am always late, especially in the morning (I turn into Grumpy from Snow White the second my alarm goes off), so the thought of creating a morning skincare routine seems impossible. My typical “routine” usually includes splashing water on my face before I frantically put on my makeup and chugging my first cup of coffee.
With all that said, with the cold months here I know if I don’t stick with a skincare routine, my skin will be dry and unruly. So in true Wander fashion, we’ve found a way to streamline your morning routine with our Morning Itinerary Trio. In fact, we’ve made it so simple that even I don’t have an excuse to skip it, no matter how little sleep I’ve gotten.
Step 1: Cleanse with Drift Away
After *hopefully* eight hours of sleep and rolling around on your pillow, your skin needs a cleanse. Start your skin routine off right using our sulfate-free Drift Away Cleanser. Like all of our multitaskers, Drift Away is made with only skin-loving ingredients, including sea water, coconut water, and guava fruit extract.
Sea water is packed with minerals like magnesium, calcium and potassium, and it’s known to absorb toxins on skin such as acne-causing bacteria to help balance skin and clear pores.
Coconut water helps gently cleanse without stripping skin of its natural moisture barrier, and guava fruit extract is rich in vitamins A, B and C which are known to be incredible antioxidants and detoxifiers.
How To Cleanse with Drift Away Cleanser:
Apply one pump of Drift Away Cleanser to the skin and massage gently. Rinse with warm water, and immediately experience brighter, softer skin.
Step 2: Awaken with Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil
After you’ve cleansed your skin, it’s time to awaken it. And our favorite way to do so is with Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil. Not only will it moisturize with its high blend of beauty oils and antioxidants, but Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil is created with light-diffusing optics, so your skin is instantly more radiant. It’s the perfect way to wake up your face if you didn’t catch all your zzz’s the night before.
Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil is the perfect makeup/skincare hybrid. Its texture is a blend of a serum and an oil, made with castor oil and black currant seed oil, that improves skin’s elasticity and locks in hydration. It’s brightening effect also makes it a perfect primer for my foundation.
How to Use Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil:
Gently squeeze the tube to release 2-3 drops of Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil onto fingertips. Massage into skin until fully absorbed and notice brighter, softer skin. For extra radiance and luminosity, tap on top of high points of the face.
Step 3: Moisturize with Dive In
The grand finale of this simple 3-step routine is moisturizing with Dive In Moisturizer. This is crucial in the winter, as icy wind and electric heat dry out the skin. The star ingredient of Dive In is pentavitin, an ingredient that deeply hydrates and locks in moisture for up to 72 hours. That means after you moisturize in the morning, not only will your skin feel soft all day, but will continue to days later. Your skin will thank you!
How to Moisturize with Dive In:
Apply a pea-sized amount onto a clean face and gently massage from the center, moving outward. Use each morning or night.
