1. Cleanse and Tone

Forget soap and harsh face cleansers in the morning. Guinwa washes her face with just water, “the reason why is because every night I do a double-cleanse,” she notes as she moves on to toner. Applying the Pixi Vitamin C Tonic on a cotton pad, Guinwa reveals “I’m obsessed with anything that has Vitamin C in it. It does give a brightening effect, which I’m all about! It also has hyalronic acid in it, which is really good for your skin, but when I apply too much of it, I actually end up irritating my skin, so a little goes a long way. I also like to apply it to my neck as well.”

2. Mist

“I like applying Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist. It smells so good and it’s super hydrating. I make sure to apply this after the toner as sometimes toner removes the moisture and the mist puts a little bit of more moisture on your face.”

3. Serum

Starting with Drunk Elephant C-Firma™ Vitamin C Day Serum, “I go from the lightest consistency to the thickest consistency, applying a little bit on my hands and tapping it on my face,” Guinwa advises. “The reason why I like Vitamin C is not only because it has a brightening effect, but it’s also known to help protect your skin from UV light. I also notice when I do break out, Vitamin C helps. There’s so many benefits to it!”

4. Bronzy Glow

Mixing Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intense Hydration Serum with Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops for “a super nice and natural tan.” Guinwa adds, “I don’t like applying the drop by itself because the texture is weird to me. I like applying it with my serum to make it a little bit more hydrating.” The rule of thumb is 2 pumps of serum and 1 pump of the drop, “I guess you could say it’s fake tan,” she reckons. “Whatever excess products I have, I always apply it to my hands.”

5. Eye cream

“I always apply eye cream before moisturizer. I’ve been using Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado for over a year now and I absolutely love it! I learnt from an aesthetican to make sure to go in this specific motion [tapping from the inner corner of the eye outwards] rather than back and forth, because it helps depuff your eye area. I like applying the rest to my brow bone.”

6. Moisturizer

“I’ve been obsessed with the Tula moisturizer. I recently switched to it and I really really like it so far! It has probiotics, which is known to have great benefits to your skin and I’m all about that!”

7. Lip balm

“Next, I like to apply lip balm to my lips. I’ve been obsessed with Aquaphor lip balm. And that’s it. Now I’m ready for my day.”
