Chanel Jenae Shares Her 6-Step Arcona Morning Skincare Routine

My morning routine is all about simple self-care that includes supportive exfoliation and protection from the environment. The time I devote–which is not long–benefits not only my skin, but lifts my spirits as well. It is a perfect way to start the day.

  1. First I exfoliate 2x’s a week with our Cranberry GommageI rinse my skin with cool water, and follow by cleansing my skin with our Cranberry Toner. This gentle and effective cleansing toner removes any superficial residue without stripping or drying my skin. It smells heavenly and infuses my skin with antioxidants. It also prepares my skin for any subsequent application of serums and moisturizers that follow. I am a great believer in supportive exfoliation, and for this I use our Cranberry Gommage, an enzymatic and physical exfoliant, which gently and effectively removes dead cells–helping to make the skin look brighter, smoother and more vibrant. I do this twice a week in place of my Cranberry Toner.

  2. I always apply a daily application of our Youth Serum which contains 20% L-Ascorbic Acid, a potent antioxidant that offsets aggressors like UV damage and pollution. It also helps with uneven skin tone, brightens the skin and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Often times, I will cocktail my serums and add our Instant Magic Reversal Serum to my Youth Serum for all the added antioxidant benefits it provides.
  3. Once I have applied my serums,  I moisturize with our Peptide Hydrating Complex to hydrate, nourish and replenish.
  4. As my skin tends to be dry, I follow my moisturizer with a thin layer of Desert Mist, a hybrid oil serum. I love this product for its moisture binding, hydrating and antioxidant properties. It makes my skin look and feel dewy and hydrated.
  5. Next, I apply our incredible Eye Dew Plus eye cream. This powerhouse formula contains cholesterol, ceramides, peptides and Vitamin C to help with the visible signs of aging. It contains Liquid Crystals which create a beautiful luminosity blurring the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s truly one of my most favorite products–and use on my lips as well.
  6. Rain or shine I of course apply our Reozone SPF 40 sunscreen. This is without doubt the most important step in my regime. I am generous and thorough in my application of this essential product.

In addition to my daily routine, once a week I use Magic Black Ice Exfoliating Mask to provide extra skin brightening, detoxifying and purifying benefits. I especially love this mask because it does not dry or strip my skin the way some charcoal and clay masks can. Then I follow it with our nourishing and replenishing Wine Hydrating Mask.

I’d love to hear, what’s your ARCONA morning routine? Share below!

Cheers,

Chanel

  1. My morning routine is almost identical!! The only difference is the Eye Dew. I love it and use it at night, because it’s almost too dewy (not a bad thing!) to wear under makeup. Do you have any tips so I can add it back into my morning routine, without ruining my makeup?

    1. So glad you have a similar routine! For the Eye Dew in the daytime, try applying it to just the orbital bone around the eye and not the lid itself. Once set with Desert Mist it shouldn’t disrupt your makeup during the day. Peptide Eye Serum is also a great option!

  2. I use most of these products but have added in magic green ice. Where do you recommend adding it in? Before or after serums?

    1. Great question! The Magic Green Ice is also considered a serum. So you would want to layer that in with your other serums, after applying the Youth Serum. Youth Serum has a thinner consistency so it’s best for that to be applied first. Then follow with your hydrator and Desert Mist!
