The Ultimate Morning Skincare Routine

If you’re falling down skincare side of TikTok (like me) and realize you need to get your morning routine together, keep on reading! 

When it comes to skincare, less is more. Our skin is our body’s largest organ. Our skin protects us from outside harm, so why shouldn’t we take care of our skin as we get older? 

The first step: researching and looking for products that work well with your skin and targets your specific skin concerns. Not all skincare products and ingredients work well with different skin types. This makes it crucial to figure out which specific products are best for you.  

Luckily, this article will set the basis for your perfect morning routine and also highlight products that are perfect for all skin types! The secret: 100% vegan and halal certified products! 

In addition, for those with sensitive skin, dry skin or oily skin, we put together the complete skincare routines for you, so you don’t have to! Thankfully, Flora & Noor carries products that are safe and suitable for all skin types. Look no further, because Flora & Noor is here and has your back! 


Why You Need to Apply Skincare in the Mornings 

It is important to implement a morning skincare routine because it helps remove any products you applied the night before. It also removes impurities that the skin has produced overnight. When cleansing the skin, you should be using a cleanser that is gentle, yet effective in removing impurities.  

Flora & Noor’s cleansers are perfect for all skin types because they are halal-certified, vegan and cruelty free! The Boost & Brighten Vitamin C Cleanser is perfect for any morning skin regimen due to containing organic reishi, Gotu Kola, vitamin C, borage and many clean and vegan ingredients.  

Furthermore, the Boost & Brighten Cleanser works to protect the skin from environmental pollutants, smooth skin texture, fade hyperpigmentation, and helps reduce clogged pores, acne and redness. In addition, it prepares the skin for absorbing products applied after each other. 

Thus, it is essential to apply your skincare in the correct order to achieve the most desired benefits. Not only does your morning skincare prepare and hydrate your skin for products applied on top of each other, it also protects your skin. 

Protecting your skin from environmental stressors such as pollution, UV rays and smoke is crucial to prevent premature aging. When it comes to free radical damage, choosing the correct serum will be your BFF. 



Which Serum Is Best? 

When it comes to finding the perfect face serum, it is important to keep in mind that serums contain a higher concentration of ingredients. By containing high concentrations, serums work to deliver vitamins and nutrients straight to skin cells.  

Moreover, introducing vegan and organic skincare items into your routine will be extremely helpful for all skin types and concerns. Utilizing clean botanicals will reduce redness and inflammation due to their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties! 

So, which serum is best? In the morning, it is best to apply vitamin C. Why? Vitamin C protects the skin barrier from free radical damage (smoke, pollution, sun damage), repairs damaged skin cells and brightens the skin tone. 

Amazingly, the Bright Side Vitamin C Serum by Flora & Noor contains the highest form of active vitamin C. It is suspended in vegan hyaluronic acid (Cassia Angustifolia Seed) which assists the skin with retaining hydration. 

Hyaluronic acid also reduces wrinkles and fine lines. When the skin is fully hydrated and supple, wrinkles do not have a long chance to stay in one place. 

In addition, the Bright Side Serum contains 100% organic Gotu Kola, aloe vera, horsetail, reishi and vitamin C! Gotu Kola is perfect for reducing dark spots and boosting cellular turnover. It is the botanical replacement of retinol (Gotu Kola vs Retinol), due to many retinols on the market are not permissible for Muslims.

The Best Moisturizer for Your Morning Routine 

After applying your face serum, it is important to lock in all of the nourishing vitamins and botanicals with a moisturizer. When it comes to daily moisturizers, look for one that is light weight. Yet contains ingredients that will further protect your skin and hydrate you throughout the day. 

Flora & Noor’s Super Glow Gel Moisturizer contains licorice root, niacinamide, tamanu, vitamin C and cassia angustifolia seed. These will help to reduce hyperpigmentation, refine skin texture, and stimulates collagen production.  

Alongside the Bright Side Vitamin C Serum, this moisturizer also protects your skin from UV rays and pollution. Those struggling with dark spots, acne scarring or wanting to prevent pre-mature aging signs, all these products are a must-have to any morning skincare routine! 

If you are wondering, “What’s the difference between vitamin C serum vs moisturizer?” The main benefit of a moisturizer is to seal the skin, locking in nutrients and hydration. It does not penetrate the epidermis like serums do, thus preventing moisture from evaporating. 



Additional Skincare Products for Your Morning Routine 

We went over using a cleanser, serum and moisturizer to start off your mornings. What’s next? 

Well, applying toner after cleansing and before serums does not hurt. Especially when the purpose of toner is to remove any remaining traces of impurities stuck in your pores after cleansing. 

Many toners you see on shelves contain alcohol, which actually further dries out your skin and leaves your pores feeling tight and does not help acne. 

Flora & Noor’s Vitamin C Resurfacing Toner contains glycolic acid, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide. Niacinamide and glycolic are the perfect acne-fighting duo you need to gently exfoliate the skin, reduce redness and acne and brighten skin tone. 

What’s even more amazing is the Resurfacing Toner improves the skin’s elasticity and smooths skin texture, unlocking a radiant glow and complexion.
