5 things that happen to your skin when you skip your morning skincare
You definitely would have heard about breakfast being the most important meal of the day.
But, what if we told you that skipping your morning skincare routine can be very detrimental to your skin's health? Even missing it for a day can have some serious long term consequences if you aren't careful!
Read on to find out 5 things that happen to your skin when you skip your morning skincare.
1. Triggers acne
Dirt could build up on the surface of the skin whilst you are asleep. This could block the follicles by trapping sebum and dead skin cells. When there is a lack of sebum, it can make it easy for the bacteria to penetrate the skin, causing inflammation. Consequently, everything adds up to acne.
Properly cleansing the skin in the morning can help clear your pores of debris, which will prevent dirt from building up and allow the sebum to reach the surface of the skin. Eventually, the chances of a breakout and, in turn, acne will decrease.
2. Pre-mature ageing
Not following a morning skincare routine means speeding up the natural process of ageing. It is vital to give your skin a good wash the first thing in the morning. Using a cleanser will remove the excess oils, impurities and dirt that build up on your skin overnight, preventing clogged pores and inflammation which could cause pimples and accelerate skin ageing.
In addition, your skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays in the morning, which is the main culprit of aging skin. If you are exposed to the sun without protection, you get sunburn and various types of skin damage that includes fine lines, age spots, freckles, wrinkles, dry and rough skin.
Applying lotions containing broad-spectrum SPF 30, vitamin E or other antioxidants is crucial to shield your skin from any environmental damage and pre-mature ageing.
3. Dehydrated skin
Your skin needs a boost of hydration after sleeping for hours, and your morning skincare will give you just that!
When we think about hydration, the first thing that comes to mind is water. Drinking water will help you retain your body's water levels, and it helps your skin get hydrated too. But that alone is not enough, you need to moisturise to help your skin lock in the moisture; thus, hydration and moisturization go hand in hand.
Regularly following a morning skincare routine will ensure that your skin is getting a chance to hydrate itself. Try water-based skincare products and lotions with elements like hyaluronic acid, best known for its hydrating qualities.
4. Enlarged Pores
Other than acne, not following a skincare routine can contribute to enlarged pores. While it is true that the size of your pores depends on genetics, you can maintain them and prevent them from getting larger by following a proper skincare routine.
It is crucial to care for skin in the sun. If a person’s skin becomes sun damaged, other than premature aging it can be very drying on your skin. When the skin is dry, pores may appear larger. Hence remember to apply sunblock after moisturising every morning! Better yet, apply a moisturiser that contains sunblock which helps you cut down on the number of steps and save time.
5. Loss of Luminosity
If you continuously miss out on your morning skincare routine, your skin will soon lose its radiance and luminosity. It is natural for your skin to shed dead skin cells every day, and a simple 3 step morning skincare routine that includes proper cleansing, moisturising and sun protection will keep your skin glowing.
During the day, you need antioxidants (Vitamin C, E, Green Tea etc) to protect your skin from free radicals and environmental damage. The right combination of antioxidants in your morning moisturiser will help to brighten your skin and prevent the onset of premature ageing.
Therefore, it can't be stressed enough how important it is to stick to your morning skin routine. Your skin craves for a refreshing boost after a long night's sleep. So investing just a few minutes every morning in your skincare routine will go a long way to radiant and supple skin.

"I love the lightweight and non-greasy texture, which glides on beautifully and absorbs readily into your skin. Despite our humid climate, my face does not feel oily when I am outdoors. "

"After 2 weeks - skin is clearer, supple and less of uneven tone
I like the non-greasy, matte feeling which lasts throughout the day, this is a big plus for me . After two weeks of using Day Glower and Night Booster, my skin condition improved and seems more hydrated."

"Glides on like a dream I must say, easily absorbed in skin with no sticky after feel. I love the added sunscreen protection and natural glow that it gives, without the need for makeup as it evens out my skin tone. (See Before/After pics) The Day Glower left my skin feeling soft and it has a slight mattifying effect without making my complexion feel greasy like some other day creams."

"I have very sensitive skin and have to be on a strict skin regime. I was very pleasantly surprised to realise that the moisturiser is light and fully absorbed with no greasy feeling.
Even better that I had no outbreaks at all throughout the duration of 1 bottle usage (about 2-3 mths: loved it, used daily). Ladies with sensitive hormonal skin will appreciate what I said. Before Auolive, I am only able to use (doctor’s brand) sunblock in the morning."

"I literally take a Minute to complete my Morning skincare routine now
Recently, I have been working on improving my skin texture so that I can reduce my reliance on make-up. I have stopped using make-up on days I do not have to attend any events or meetings, so I have been able to save some precious time in the mornings. With the Day Glower, my morning routine is even more efficient because it is a moisturiser and sun-screen all in one product! I literally take a minute to complete my skincare routine in the morning on most days and I can spend the precious time that I have saved for other things.
The texture of the Day Glower feels more like a light sunscreen so it doesn’t feel tacky, and also works great as a primer on days when I need to apply make-up. I love this star product of Auolive because it really helps to make my mornings more efficient and I don’t need to sacrifice my skin care for it."

Our founder, Claire, had this exact problem. She was knee-deep in the corporate world and described at best as “haggard-looking” by her friends after a stint of long nights at the office.
And she wasn’t alone, she found that there were plenty of working women who had the exact same problem! Constant Late Nights and early mornings had started to literally show on their faces.
So after 2 years of R&D with a laboratory in Switzerland, she created Auolive, a brand that uses natural active ingredients in all its multi-functional products for the best possible results for you!
