It has been so gosh darn hot in the valley. Talk about a post-menopause nightmare! With all that extra sweating I’ve got to take extra special care of my skin. Over the last few months I’ve been trying to wear less makeup so my skin can breathe in this heat. I also adjusted my morning skincare routine to give my skin the extra hydration it needs during the summer months. All I can say is my skin is oh so happy. No summer breakouts …whew!
After I posted my skincare routine on IG stories last week I got so many requests for product links. Well, what I love most about my routine is all of the products I use are super accessible all in one place – AMAZON.com! So just in time for Amazon Prime Day, I put together a list of all the products I use with shoppable links.

My Morning Skincare Routine
Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner
I don’t wash my skin in the morning. Instead, I start my day with a really good toner. For the last few months I’ve been obsessed with this toner by Korean brand Pyunkang Yul that I found on Beauty Refinery. It’s made from 91.9% coptis japonica root extract and it is DIVINE!
Perlier Royal Elixir Pearls of Youth
You darlings know how much I love royal jelly! Royal jelly is a component of collagen which keeps skin firm, boosts elasticity, and reduces inflammation. This elixir has encapsulated pearls of royal jelly and makes my skin feel luxurious. I use this product only in the mornings.
Bee Yummy Skin Food by Live Live
Since I’m trying not to wear too much makeup this summer, I need a moisturizer that is super hydrating and seals in moisture. Bee Yummy Skin Food is my holy grail product that has been a critical step of my morning skincare routine for over 5 years. It contains natural ingredients like bee propolis, royal jelly, and bee pollen. It is so lovely!
Perlier Royal Elixir Oil of Youth
After my moisturizer I apply Perlier Royal Elixir Oil of Youth. It says it’s a night oil but I like to use in the morning because it’s very light. I apply just a few drops to my face to lock in all of the layers I just applied.
Kiss My Face Face Factor 30 SPF
My morning skincare routine would not be complete without my sunscreen. I’ve been using this one by Kiss My Face for years and my skin really likes it. Since I have darker skin, I love that this sunscreen doesn’t make my face white or chalky. It layers perfectly with my skin products and under my makeup. And best of all, it’s a mineral based, all natural sunscreen.
Mymatcha by Cocokind
I use the Mymatcha stick to seal in moisture in my eye area. It’s so hydrating and the long lasting formula keeps my eyes hydrated all day long.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
The last step of my morning skincare routine is this lip sleeping mask by Laneige. Even though it’s a sleep mask I apply this product all day long. I was gifted this product during my trip to Palm Springs with DevaCurl and now I’m obsessed. I am loving the yummy apple lime flavor but I can’t wait to try the other flavors too!
