My morning skincare routine, step-by-step

Makeup and nail artist Tanya Barlow has one of the best glows in the business, so we asked her to share her skincare secrets, step-by-step.

While we’d love to identify as beauty geeks - and the amount of product we have on the bathroom shelf would attest to that - we admit that we can sometimes feel insecurities over order and application. It all seems so complicated!

But, as Tanya explains, it’s simply a matter of going from thinnest consistency through to thickest. We love the joy she brings to her skincare and approach to beauty, and think that’s probably the most crucial step of all.

What products Tanya has used in this video (not everyone does this many steps, and other people do even more. You do you!):

1. DMK Herb and Mineral moisture spray

“I spritz this first thing after a shower as that's when your skin needs moisture the most. Alternatives include most toners/facial mists or ‘essence’ products, used to prep the skin before the good stuff.”

2. UFO Clarifying face oil

“As salicylic acid is the most active ingredient, I use this as a second step to do some work before I lock it in with moisture. This would be where you could use any blemish or clarifying serums. Any chemical or acid exfoliators should go before toner/moisture spray.”

3. Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide capsules

“These contain collagen and are great for brightening. You can use brightening serums at this step, including vitamin C.”

4. Boost Labs Eye Serum

“I apply eye cream at this point. With most eye products, pat gently with your ring finger.”

5. Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration serum

“Hydrating serums, ‘anti ageing’ serums or hyaluronic products can be used here. Last step before the face oils!”

6. DMK Seba-E Hydrating oil

“Facial oils can go here: vitamin E, rosehip, almond oil, etc. What I didn't include in the video was spritzing this face oil with the moisture spray - it makes it sink in more and helps repair the acid mantle. This stuff is amazing. Both DMK products were recommended by my facialist at Loft Beauty.”

7. La Mer Creme de la Mer

“This is a fab cream but any moisturiser will do.”

8. Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen gel

“A very important step. I bought this in Hong Kong - I love Japanese sunscreens.”

9. Colourpop blemish stickers

“Super cute! But I also love these ones also. I like using pimple patches while at home so I don't touch my face or feel tempted to squeeze!”
