Step #1: Wash Your Face With a Gentle Cleanser

If there's one skincare step you should never skip, it's this one. You should never face the day without thoroughly cleansing your face.

Washing your face does more than energize and invigorate your senses. It removes dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria that are clogging your pores. That's how you'll keep your skin clean and clear. Not only does it feel refreshing, but it also is the key to improving your skin health.

If you wear makeup, it might be worthwhile to whisk away any remaining cosmetics with micellar water first. This extra step will help remove makeup that your nighttime skincare routine didn't expel. Do this before washing your face.

Remember to save your deep-cleaning scrub for the PM, and use a gentle formula in the morning. This is important to preserving the natural pH balance of your skin's protective barrier.

Note that you shouldn't ever use hot water on your face, as this strips the natural hydrating oils of your skin. After gently massaging your preferred product into your skin, rinse it all away with lukewarm water. If you're looking for a new go-to product, you can't go wrong with JUARA's Rice Facial Cleanser.

Step #2: Hydrate With a Clarifying Facial Toner

A toner is meant to remove impurities that your cleanser didn't catch. It also feels overwhelmingly refreshing on sleepy skin, helps to hydrate dry patches, and mattifies oily areas.

This step is optional, but it shouldn't be skipped for those with acne-prone or dry skin. All you need to do is apply a bit of product to a cotton pad and gently swipe it across your T-zone. You can also use a quick spritz of a mist formula.

If you have dry or sensitive skin, use a hydrating toner that contains natural ingredients like witch hazel, rose water, hyaluronic acid, or rice bran extract.

Our Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner is a fragrance-free toner that's designed to balance pH levels and reintroduce much-needed moisture to dry skin. It's formulated with premium botanicals like rice bran extract, tamarind seed extract, and triple-tea extract that treat your skin with love and care. Plus, it contains hyaluronic acid to further hydrate, plump, and refine the skin.

Step #3: Protect Your Skin With a Serum

Serum is another optional step, but we highly recommend applying some if you're grappling with aging skin. Whether you opt for a water-based formula or vitamin C serum, these products are quickly absorbed into your skin and provide targeted relief.

For a fulfilling AM skincare routine, gently tap on our Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum. A serum designed to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, this juicy gel gives your skin a luminous and even appearance after just one use.

It only takes a few drops of this hydrating serum to make a difference. After just four weeks of use, you'll see a noticeable improvement in your skin's barrier function and resilience.

Step #4: Slather on a Lightweight Moisturizer

Cleansing and moisturizing are the two most essential skincare steps. Even if you forego the toner and serum, you shouldn't go without a morning moisturizer.

Those with dry skin types might need something thick, similar to that of a night cream. But, in general, your morning skincare routine should feature a lightweight moisturizer that goes on easily.

Our iconic Sweet Black Tea and Rice Moisturizer promotes a radiant complexion and boosts collagen production. Carefully formulated with natural ingredients like kombucha, rice bran oil, and five-flavor berries, this skincare necessity can smooth skin texture, reduce excess oil, and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Step #5: Apply a Touch of Eye Cream

The skin around the eyes is particularly sensitive and delicate. It's easy for this area to lose hydration and moisture. Plus, it's one of the first places that you'll start to see wrinkles and fine lines as you age. Whether you're treating under-eye bags or looking to lighten dark circles, you shouldn't skip a morning eye cream.

Apply an eye cream like our Miracle Tea Eye Cream in small dots around the eyes. Gently tap the product so it absorbs into the skin, and smooth it outward. Don't forget to add a dab to the area just under your eyebrow.

Step #6: Layer on the Sunscreen

Sunscreen is an essential part of my morning skincare routine year-round. Even if the sky is overcast, you shouldn't skip your SPF. When you apply sunscreen, you're protecting your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. It'll also help prevent dark spots and premature aging.

Final Thoughts

Regardless of your skin type, you shouldn't ever skip your AM beauty routine. You deserve to start your day feeling fulfilled and refreshed. A well-rounded morning skincare routine is the best way to bolster your daily wellness ritual!
