My Morning Top 3 Skincare Routine 

Updated: Mar 10

After I turned 30 years old, I suddenly realized that my skin was screaming for attention. After a few years of trying different products from well-known and not-so-well-known companies, I settled on my morning skincare top 3 . Let's dive in and find out more about them.

Collagen, Elemis face cream, Caudalie face serum

#1Marine Collagen

As we age, the natural production of collagen in our bodies decreases, leading to a loss of elasticity in the skin. To maintain a radiant complexion, strong nails, and lustrous hair. I would like to share indispensable morning essentials. At the top of my list is Marine Collagen.

While the concept of collagen supplementation may not be ground-breaking, my initial scepticism was high due to the plethora of brands offering collagen in various forms, such as tablets, powders, or liquids. I am typically cautious when swayed by negative reviews, as they often deter me from trying new products.

However, a few years ago, my scepticism wavered during a beauty treatmet, where I was introduced to Marine Collagen by someone who shared the same brand preference. Upon trying it, I regret not discovering it sooner. Despite my previous lack of Skincare routine , I now firmly believe that it is better to care for your skin late than never.

The Marine Collagen I incorporate into my daily routine boasts a delightful strawberry-lemon flavor, making it a pleasant part of my day. I typically consume my 25ml daily dose in the morning, either following a glass of water or before.

While there may be differing opinions on the ideal timing of collagen intake, this routine has proven effective for me. The benefits of collagen extend beyond skin, hair, and nails. Regular marine collagen supplementation can support joint flexibility, reduce joint pain, and enhance bone strength and density.

Studies suggest that collagen aids in muscle recovery post-exercise, potentially alleviating muscle soreness and promoting metabolism and lean muscle mass. Moreover, marine collagen's peptides may positively influence heart health by maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and supporting overall cardiovascular function.

Furthermore, the sustainable sourcing of marine collagen from fish by-products underscores its eco-friendly nature, making it a conscientious choice compared to other collagen sources.


#2 Caudalie Vinoperfect Face Serum


When it comes to my daily must-haves, Caudalie Vinoperfect Face Serum takes the spotlight as my second top favorite product.

Let me tell you, every drop of this serum feels like a skincare splurge that's totally worth it. I've been using this gem for about a year now, and let me just say, that 30ml bottle seems to last forever - using it twice daily, it lasts me over three months! That longevity is a win in my book.

Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is a game-changer, designed to do wonders for your skin. It targets uneven skin tone, dark spots, and overall radiance, thanks to the grape vine sap extracts and other powerful ingredients packed inside.

Customers rave about Caudalie products for their natural ingredients, gentle formulas, and how effectively they tackle various skin concerns.

If you're tempted to jump on the Caudalie face serum bandwagon, this is just a friendly tip to consider. It's always a good idea to scan through reviews, check the ingredients to ensure they match your skin's needs, and maybe do a patch test before making it a part of your skincare routine.

Remember, while this is my personal review, what works wonders for my skin might not be the best fit for you. So, proceed with caution and embrace that radiant skin glow!


#3 Elemis Pro-Collagen Day Cream


Let's talk about ELEMIS, the brainchild of London entrepreneur Linda Steiner back in 1989. Linda's mission was clear: to craft a skincare line that's as close to nature as possible. Now, I'd heard about ELEMIS before, but let's be real - shelling out nearly £100 for a face cream isn't everyone's cup of tea. But hey, sometimes you've got to treat yourself.

So, I decided to pamper myself with an ELEMIS facial experience, complete with a deep clean and all the works. And let me tell you, it was love at first sight!

It hit me that using the right skincare products can be just as impactful as eating a healthy diet - something many of us often overlook. Now, I'll be honest, I'm not the epitome of health. I've got a soft spot for carbs, but hey, it's about balance, not perfection.

Back in the day, I used to think one good toner, cream, and serum were all I needed for good skin health - I mean, looking back, what was I even thinking?

But let's zoom back to ELEMIS - this cream changed up my daily skincare routine like no other. My skin feels like velvet, and the best part? A little goes a long way! I started using it halfway through October, and guess what? I still have half of the container left.

As my cosmetologist always says, all you need are those three magic potions - collagen, cream, and serum—to keep that skin glow going strong. There's no need for a whole cabinet of options when you've found the ones that work best for you. Who said less is more? Well, in this case, my skin sure is saying thank you!



We should take care of ourselves while everything is okay, not when we see that it is time to start—then it is too late. 

Luckily, there are so many different ways to make a purchase today. That’s why I trust #Klarna and #ClearPay. They allow you to pay in instalments without breaking the bank.

Hope you enjoyed reading this. Cannot wait to come back with the new DeKrista Review
