Kaylin’s Skincare Routine

Being a fairly recent college graduate, Kaylin has started to put more time into her skincare routine. She loves to try different products so subscribing to Birchbox and Ipsy has given her that opportunity.

Skincare Routine AM:

OleHenriksen true serum

Step 1: OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum


Kaylin has come up with a simple routine that has reduced her acne and smoothed out the texture of her skin. She starts her morning routine with a Vitamin C serum. Right now she is using OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum. This serum is great for any skin type (Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily). It contains vitamin C and collagen and is recommended for brightening and hydrating your skin.

The second step is adding a little more hydration to her skin. The Ordinary brand has a wide selection of budget-friendly items. Amino Acids + B5 is lightweight for all skin types (Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily) and gives the skin more hydration for a healthy-looking glow.

Step 3: Clean & Clear Essentials Dual Action Facial Moisturizer

To complete Kaylin’s morning routine she glides on the Garnier Clearly Brighter Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller and uses Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen over her entire face. Sunscreen is so important for anti-aging and the earlier you start the longer your skin will continue to look young.

In general, it is good practice to use Retinoids in your PM routine. And if you are using Retinoids you should always protect your skin during the day with sunscreen. The Ordinary has a 2% and 5% Retinoid. If you have not used Retinoids, it might be safe to start with the lower 2% serum and graduate to the 5%.
