My Daily Kiehl's Essentials


    Everyone has their morning routine: wash face, make breakfast, then leave feeling ready to take on the day. I start my skincare routine the same way every morning and always leave my apartment with a fresh, clean face. How? I start every morning with My Daily Kiehl's Essentials. With this routine, I can skip the powders and foundations because of how smooth and even my skin is when I’m done!

    First thing's first: the gentle morning shower. I usually don’t recommend products from the men’s lines to women (men’s skin is thicker, so the products don’t always work for both genders), but there’s a few I’ll make an exception for. The Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap is one of those products. One of the great ingredients in this product is Oat Bran, which gently exfoliates while it hydrates skin. I always have the smoothing skin after my shower because of the Scrub - just make sure to not use it on your face.

    After my shower and after I cleanse and tone, I make sure I get my daily dose of Vitamin C with the Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate. Celebrating 10 years in the Kiehl's family this fall, the product has been a customer favorite since it launched. No matter the age or skin type, this has benefits for you: the Line Reducing Concentrate contains 10.5% pure Vitamin C, the most you can get without a prescription. It is great for anti-aging, and also at reversing fine lines and wrinkles. A lot of users have even said that it tightens the skin as well. Just don’t forget to pair this product with sunscreen!

    Then, I use the Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. This is another product that is great for all skin types and all ages. If you are looking for a moisturizer for the delicate eye area, the Avocado Eye Treatment is perfect. It is, by the way, so important to use products specifically formulated for the eye! The skin around the orbital zone is much thinner and more susceptible to wrinkles and damage by products that are too harsh. The Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment contains Squalane, an ingredient that is naturally derived from olives and makes a silky moisturizer that is extremely compatible with the skin. When you apply, you literally feel a burst of moisture! Just always remember to pat, not pull, when putting the product on.

    Next up: a facial cream. The Ultra Facial Cream is another product that is great for most skin types and all ages. It's a potent 24-hour moisturizer, and, my favorite Kiehl’s product! A little goes a long way so don’t be surprised if a 1.7 ounce container lasts forever. This product is also formulated with Squalane, so it is very compatible with your skin’s natural oils. This moisturizer will keep your skin looking plump and dewy all day.

    Before I leave for the day, I make sure I rehydrate my skin with the Creme de Corps Body Lotion. The lotion contains Cocoa Butter which makes my skin silky and smooth, especially after dehydrating hot showers. My favorite part about the Creme de Corps? A purse-friendly 2.5oz version - I carry mine with me everywhere I go.
