Ok to be clear, eating superfoods is crazy important. Using beauty products formulated with superfoods is also crazy important. I never had a consistent morning skincare routine until a reader asked, “What is your morning skincare routine?” and I was like “Self, you need to get on that”. Typically I just splash cold water on my face, reach for some sort of hydrating product and bee-line downstairs to the coffee machine. I realized that I could do better for myself without adding significant time between me and my coffee. I now have a three part morning skincare routine and it makes those few peaceful minutes before my kids start *asking for things* all that more enjoyable.

A few months ago I got a facial and the aesthetician said that toners are an amazing product to use in the morning. They help get the oils off your skin that can build up when sleeping and set the tone (no pun intended) for a fresh-faced day. ELEMIS just released their Superfood Fruit Vinegar Liquid Glow Radiance Facial Toner and I’ve been using it right after washing my face each morning. I think we can all agree that vinegar is one of those products that cures everything and this is no exception. It tightens pores, removes grime (and pollution), helps even and brighten skin tone, and it smells delightful – nothing like vinegar in case anyone was worried about that!
The next step in my morning routine is to pat a small amount of the Superfood Matcha Eye Dew under my eyes. It’s infused with antioxidant rich matcha and instantly hydrates the under-eye area. It has a gel-like texture that absorbs immediately into my skin and can be used throughout the day whenever you need a little moisture boost. There is a slight cooling sensation you feel when it is applied and helps to revive tired looking eyes.
The final step is to squeeze a few drops of the Superfood Facial Oil into my palm and rub into my face. If you have dry summer skin from too much sun/salt/sand… this is the ultimate product for hydration. I know applying an oil to your skin can seem questionable, but just read the reviews! People are nuts for this product for good reason. You can also add a few drops to your face cream for an added boost. The oil is lightweight and fast-absorbing, but leaves your skin with an instant glow.
And then I tiptoe downstairs and hope no one wakes up for at least 12 more minutes. Wishful thinking.
Morning routine part 2: When I am actually getting ready for the day which is usually 30-45 minutes later, I will apply a face cream with sunscreen and then do my make up etc…. but not without doing my superfood routine first!
