An easy skincare routine for busy mornings
By Carla Snuggs

Having a morning skincare routine is important. However, it shouldn’t be overly-complicated and time-consuming. If you’re spending tons of time on skincare in the morning, it may be time to revamp your skincare routine! Christina Kauffman, owner of Blush Tan in Wellesley and Westborough, MA has provided Posh Beauty Blog with an extremely easy morning skincare routine so that you don’t waste any time and you’re out the door. 

While using SPF every day is crucial, here are a few more day-to-day steps Christina swears by:

  • Learn to look for INGREDIENTS rather than settling for PRODUCTS.
  • Don't rely on just make-up & make-up remover
  • When it comes to your face, follow these steps for a full-face prep:

Step 1.) Use a face brush and deep pore cleanser to exfoliate your skin

Step 2.) Apply facial toner

Step 3.) Apply an under eye cream

Step 4.) Apply daily moisturizer with SPF

That’s it; you’re ready to go!
