The Benefits of a Morning Skincare Routine

It's no secret that having a consistent morning skincare routine is incredibly important for maintaining healthy skin. While you may not think much accumulates overnight in your sleep, your body still produces oil, and a morning skincare routine will help you prep the skin for day ahead by removing dirt and impurities that have accumulated from your nights rest. Let's dive deeper into the reasons why you need to have a consistent morning skincare routine.

4 Benefits of a Morning Skincare Routine


1.) Cleanse Your Face of Impurities

Starting your morning off with cleansing your face with a gentle yet effective moisturizer will help to draw out any dirt or impurities that have accumulated overnight. If you use other skincare products or apply makeup, this buildup of impurities can reduce the effectiveness of other products as it limits the absorbency into your skin. Cleaning your face every morning can help you avoid this, on top of making your face feel fresh and clean.

2.) Easier Makeup Application

Like stated above, if you don't start off your day with a skincare routine, especially cleansing, you are limiting the benefits and absorbency of your other products, including makeup application. If your skin isn't looking or feeling it's best, chances are your makeup won't either. If you prep your skin well and take care of it, you'll notice an immense difference in your makeup application, especially over time.

3.) Helps to Moisturize Your Face For The Day

Keeping your face hydrated and moisturized is incredibly important. Your skin may be more dry depending on the season, or may even get dehydrated overnight. Prepping your skin and moisturizing it with a moisturizer that is gentle yet nourishing is incredibly important so that you can tackle the day ahead while helping your skin to stay hydrated to fight off outside elements.

4.) Helps to Protect Your Skin

Last but certainly the most important aspect of a morning skincare routine is to protect your skin. When you use quality products to help cleanse and nourish your skin, you're also adding protection against the free radicals you may encounter in the environment.

Easy 4 Step Morning Skincare Routine & How to Layer Your Products

Here at Renu, we believe that skincare doesn't have to be complicated or extensive. That's why we've created a skincare line that isn't only nourishing for you skin, but that is easy when life get's busy. Let's dive into this easy 4 step morning skincare routine!

1.) Cleanse Your Face

The first step in any skincare routine is cleansing your face. We recommend using a gentle yet effective cleanser such as RENU Purifying Gel Cleanser. This cleanser is plant powered and is great at removing bacteria, pollutants, and impurities yet gentle on the skin. Check out these "Top 5 Facial Cleanser Benefits" to see more on the benefits of cleanser!

How to apply: Dispense 1 pump of cleanser and apply to damp skin. Cleanse in a circular motion and rinse with warm water!

If you feel comfortable adding an extra step, you can then use a facial toner. This will help to balance and boost your complexion and minimize the appearance of pores.

Step 2: Exfoliate Your Face

Exfoliating your face is important no matter what season, but even more so in the summer months when you're more prone to sweating. We suggest exfoliating with a gentle yet effective exfoliant such as RENU Hydra Whip Exfoliant. This exfoliant is formulated with walnut shell powder and has a calming lavender scent. Perfectly gentle for your skin yet tough enough to polish and smooth.
How to apply: Scoop a small amount of exfoliant into the palm of your damp hands and blend until it reaches a mouse consistency. You can then apply it to your wet face at the cheeks and move in a circular motion up towards your nose and forehead. It's suggested to use this on your face and/or body 2-3 times a week.

Step 3: Moisturize Your Face

After you cleanse and exfoliate, you'll want to apply your moisturizer. We recommend using a moisturizer that is rich enough to moisturize and keep your skin hydrated, but that is lightweight enough. The perfect daily moisturizer for this is RENU Pure Radiance Moisturizer with active Peptides. It's packed full of vitamins, plant lipids, and botanicals to keep your skin restored and nourished. It's also formulated with powerful peptides to support the skin, while plumping, soothing, and rejuvenating!
How to apply: Pump a small amount and apply to a clean face starting at the cheeks and working upwards motion to the forehead. You can also use this on your hands and body!

Step 4: Seal Your Morning Skincare Routine with Facial Oil

The final step in your morning skincare routine is applying a facial oil. We suggest Renu Luxury Facial oil to promote hydration, give a radiant glow, lock in your routine for the day, all while making your face feel light and refreshed! Make sure to check out our "Facial Oils- Are They Good For Your Skin?" to better understand the benefits of facial oils!
How to apply: Apply 1-3 drops of oil on clean skin as the last step in your skincare routine. This can be applied under your makeup and throughout the day for a skin refresher!
