Gigi's Current Morning Skincare Routine
Hi Beauties! Here is my morning skincare routine. I’m currently breastfeeding and 3 months postpartum, so everything I’m using right now is free of retinols, salicylic acids, hydroquinone, aluminum, and benzoyl peroxide. Which means I’m not treating my melasma or any breakouts really. This skincare routine is about maintenance, healthy aging, and hydration. I also like to keep it simple and not use a million products, this helps me recognize which ones actually work and are making a difference.
Please keep in mind that I’m a practitioner and not a professional, I’m just sharing what works for me and the products I love. Always check with your dermatologist or esthetician before trying anything new and feel free to shop any of the products below. These are either created by me or purchased, nothing here is sponsored.
First things first, Cleanse.
I love this cleanser because it doesn't strip my skin from its natural oils. I used to suffer from acne, and a big cause for my acne was the dryness from double cleansing and using really strong cleansing agents. This one is glycolic acid based which makes it effective, yet super gentle.
Next up, Vitamin C serum.
This powerful serum protects my skin from environmental factors & brightens my complexion. It's a great way to keep my melasma under control while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Hydration, Holy Grail.
I was influenced by social media to buy this and to my surprise it's become one of my favorite hydrating agents for the winter months.
The Rich Cream by Augustinus Bader
Double hydration, double the glow.
This oil nourishes the skin and relives any irritation. Carrot seed oil is a natural brightener that's rich in antioxidants known for its ability to rejuvenate. I like to layer over my moisturizer for an extra glow.
Naturopathica Carrot Seed
Smooth, brighten and sculpt.
No botox, no problem! Daily Gua Sha facial has helped me keep my skin firm and wrinkle free throughout both of my pregnancies and postpartum.
Delaheart White Jade Gua Sha
Tech neck, be gone!
The anti-inflammatory properties of Jojoba Oil nourish, soothe, and protect your skin. Jojoba oil is a humectant ingredient, which means that it works to attract water to the top layer of the skin. I love using it for my neck, one of my driest areas.
Delaheart Organic Jojoba Oil
Microcurrent facial toning.
Tighter and firmer skin with fewer wrinkles at the convenience of my very own beauty counter. Sign me up!
Layer, layer, layer.
The most important.
I do not leave my bathroom without sunscreen, particularly living in Miami where we receive sun 24/7. The real anti-aging tool.
Alastin Skincare Hydratint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen
Last but not least, plump!
This guy moisturizes, plumps, and softens your lips. Combine this one with their Lip Sleeping Mask and your lips will thank you forever.
