Adrienne Houghton’s Morning Skincare Routine | All Things Adrienne


– Hey, what’s up everybody? So, since I started this channel, the number one thing I hear comments about or the thing that
you’ve been requesting has been all about my skincare routine. So today is the day. Thank you so so much for all
the love that you’ve shown me. All the flattering comments. Today we’re gonna talk
all things skincare. And what my daytime routine is
when I get up in the morning. These are all the things I use. Check it out. (upbeat music) I love beauty products. I can be like a hoarder. If I open this drawer right now I have way too many beauty products. You do not wanna see under my sink. I could up a drugstore. Like a toiletries section. But I have learned over the
years that I have incredibly sensitive skin and I
can’t use just anything. So instead of freaking out
that my face is bright red and I have bumps all over
it because I went and tried a million different products, I now stick to the same things and most of it is specifically
for sensitive skin. So when I wake up in the
morning I like to use iS Clinical face wash. It’s the cleansing complex. And I love this so much mainly
because it is very gentle on my skin but at the same
time it removes any build up from some of the night
creams I could have put on the night before or makeup as well. So I love love love this. I actually found out about
this from Shani Darden who’s an incredible
esthetician here in L.A. And she told me about
this when I found out that I had rosacea. She told me that it was
gonna be perfect for me and gentle enough. Love love love her for that. But if we’re keeping it real, sometimes I do go to
sleep with my makeup on. And even if you wash it
off sometimes your skin still feels dull so I like to
wake my face up in the morning if I’ve slept with makeup on
by using a light gentle scrub. Again, specifically for sensitive skin. I don’t play that. My face will be like (roars)
why did you do this to me? So my favorite is by
Lancer who’s an incredible dermatologist in Beverly Hills. And this is called the method polish. And again, it is
specifically for sensitive, dehydrated skin. I also have really dry skin. And that happened when
I moved here to L.A. I use to not always have dry
skin but then I got out here to the desert and there’s no
humidity in the air people. So, my skin has gotten dry over the years. And this is perfect for that. So I use this to take off my makeup. But you guys, oh my God, the
cost effective version of this that I actually have in my
shower at my dressing room at The Real is Aveeno’s positively radiant skin brightening daily scrub. Which I love as well. This is a great affordable
version to the Dr. Lancer. So I’m the kind of girl
that washes my face in the shower every morning. I don’t know if you guys use the sink. I get really weird about
that with the water running down my elbows. So I jump in the shower in the morning, wash and exfoliate my face,
and then when I get out, I’m on to my lip scrub. Which I personally love love love. French Girl’s rose lip polish. How cute is this? You know I love anything French. They got me with the name: French Girl. But the product is actually really dope. And I also love anything
that is rose infused. So this is their rose lip
polish and I’m gonna show you how to use it. Because this part I can show you because I’m not naked in
the shower, you feel me? (clicks tongue) It’s a PG-13 YouTube channel. Okay, so I wish we had smell-o-vision so you could smell how
amazing this smells. Okay. So you just grab a little
bit just like this. And place it on your lips. I’m a super freak about
having smooth soft lips. Again, this is a gentle
scrub because again, my lips are also very sensitive. Scrub any skin off your lips. This is really important especially when you’re gonna put lipstick
on when you’re prepping your face to put on makeup. This is a super important part
especially if you’re wearing matte lipstick or you have
been wearing matte lipstick because that tends to
really dry out your lips. So this is going to infuse
moisture back into them. Slough off any dead skin and
now you’ve got the perfect surface to apply your
new lipstick for the day. Grab a washcloth and
then you’re just gently going to wipe away the scrub. Oh my God, why does that
taste so good though? Do not eat the scrub. Like me. So just like that. Voila. (smooch) Okay guys, moving right along. Now that my lips have been scrubbed, now it’s time to moisturize them. I believe in the old tried and true. Good ol’ Carmex. I know like this is super old school. Good old drugstore find. But I love love love it. I love the fact that it’s
got that tingle factor to it. It feels amazing to me and
I always have one of these by my nightstand and in my purse. Carmex for the win. So you’re gonna put some of that on there. I also feel like the slight
tingle and burn that Carmex has also creates a nice little
flushed look on your lips. I tend to feel like my lips are gray. So I feel like when I
add Carmex it makes them a little red looking. I’m sure that’s because
they’re being irritated but whatever, it feels great. I feel like Carmex almost has
a lip plumping factor to it. So now that I’ve got that on there, I’m just gonna let that soak in. And now that my lips are moisturized, now it’s time to prep the skin. I like to using the
Caudelie beauty elixir. You guys, this smells incredible. It smells like what wakes up your skin. We all can’t figure out
what it smells like. We’ve tested, nobody could figure out. It’s like eucalyptus, tea
tree oil smelling peppermint morning vibes but it’s the perfect thing to wake up your skin in the morning. Love it. And they also a travel size
version of this at Sephora. That I like to travel and take
on the plane with me as well. So love love love this stuff. Shake it up. It actually has a little
layer of oil on the top that you wanna mix. So shake it and then
you’re just going to… Spray it just like that. Say hello, good morning world,
yes, my skin’s waking up. Oh, that feels so good. We’re not gonna add our moisturizer. I heard this trick from somewhere. I can’t exactly where I read
this but you should always put your moisturizer on when
your skin is slightly damp. It actually helps absorb
and lock in the moisture. So I like to use, this is oh, my favorite favorite moisturizer ever. It is Kiehl’s ultra facial moisturizer. It’s for all skin types. What I love most about
this is I went through a really really hard time where my skin was being irritated by
every single thing I put. Literally, my skin burned if
I put like anything on it. So it took me awhile to find
something that didn’t irritate my skin but still kept it
really really moisturized and dewy and that’s when I found good old Kiehl’s ultra facial moisturizer. My favorite. And this also comes in a travel
size that I carry as well. I like to put a lot of
moisturizer on so about that much. Rub it in my hands together. Get in there like this. Get around my mouth and my nose. My dry areas. All the way up to my forehead. Make sure you get your neck as well. You’re always supposed to do
your neck in an upward motion. Yeah, okay. Oh, this feels so good. Take time to show your skin some love. Get in there. As I’ve gotten older I now
understand the importance of SPF and I have found a product
that I love love love because even though you
put makeup on on top of obviously your
moisturizer and your SPF, sometimes the SPF still has
that white pasty look to it that still comes through
from under your makeup. Which is why I’m obsessed with
Glossier’s invisible shield. When I went on vacation with
family to the Cayman Islands, everyone else was walking around with like literally white faced. It looked insane. Covered in SPF and like sunblock. And I was poppin’. I was just you know,
using my invisible shield. Walking around, minding my business. And it works and I love it. And also was in what’s
in my beach bag episode. So if you didn’t check
that out, check that out. Okay, so here we go. So now I’m just gonna put
two pumps of that right there just like that. I like to mainly focus on the
areas where I know I get sun. For instance, my cheeks and my forehead are like my main focus. I’m just gonna really make
sure that I got it on there and anything else that’s leftover I’ll add but I really wanna focus
on the bridge of my nose. I never used to wear SPF
like ever and I have learned the importance of it not
just for youthful skin but for health purposes. Even if it’s a cloudy day outside. Even in the middle of winter,
you should always wear SPF. So glad I found this product that I love and now I am
officially an SPF user. Boom. Done. On to the next. Now that the moisture is all locked in, now we’re gonna de-puff. I love love using, God,
I say little a lot. Love love love. Ugh, love love love. Since you guys have been
commenting that I say love love love a lot,
I’m switching it up here. Girl, I like like like this right here. This like like like like like like a lot. Okay, so I really do love
KnC Beauty’s eye patches. I actually used this
during the Emmy Awards when I was Emmy prepping. I was like, look girl, you
might win something today. Even though we really didn’t
think we were gonna win. You might as well show
up looking like a winner. And I used these to prep. And first of all, can we
just talk about the packaging and how freaking cute this is. I love this. It is so cute. It’s like moons and it’s
glittery and it comes in this bag like this and pretty
much you’re going to put, it’s like a moon and a star. And I love that it’s glitter and gold. And I just add that to
where your tear duct is. And you go all the way up. Just like that. How cute is that? I feel like Rainbow Brite. Any other 80s babies
remember Rainbow Brite? I love the cooling factor
of these eye patches. They really do make you look
awake and alive and take down any puffiness you may have in the morning. Oh, a fun tip. If you really really
want a de-puffing effect, put these in the fridge. When you wake up in the
morning, put them on your eyes. They have even more like
decompressing effect when they’re nice and cold. Let me put my other one
on on the other side. Make sure that you get all the
juice that’s in the tray too. There’s like juice in there. You wanna make sure that
you get all of that. Get all of that good stuff. I’m gonna place this
again by your tear duct. And just like that. Come on, you know this is cute. This is like Instagram able. Okay, so these are gonna stay
on my eyes and we are moving right along to derma rolling. Yes. I know you guys have seen
these probably on social media. This is a jade roller. I got it on Amazon for like nine bucks. At this point while I
am de-puffing my eyes with my KnC eye mask, now I am going to take
this out of the fridge. Again, just a really great tip. When it’s cold it feels amazing. So hopefully you pop these in the fridge. They’re now cooling your eyes down. Take this out of the fridge
and begin to derma roll. Now the key is what I
use this for is mainly taking away any puffiness that
I might have in my cheeks. A lot of people will be like, oh my God, she has fillers in her cheeks. I don’t want a fat face people. Like that is not, I naturally
have really really fat cheeks. So this is like almost like
contouring before contouring. So I’m gonna derma roll my face by like contouring my
cheekbones up this way. Because I don’t want this to be all round. Now that we’ve done derma rolling we can now remove these patches. But you actually should keep
them on for 15-20 minutes. Find something to do during that time. Do your hair, scroll through IG. Make a coffee, a smoothie. Go for a walk. Pick out your outfit. This list could go on and on. Do what you want. Keep them on for 15-20 minutes. At this point I’m gonna
remove them just like that. Ooh, yes. I’m feeling oh so refreshed. And now we are going to if you want, you can actually go back
in with the smaller side of your derma roller. And you’re gonna go up
on your eyes as well. You can derma roll your
eyes with the smaller part. Again, going inward and outward. I actually saw a YouTube
video about derma rolling and how you shouldn’t go back and forth. You should only go in one direction. So you’re gonna go up, up, up. As opposed to back and
forth, back and forth. So derma rolling all done. Now for our last step, you’re
gonna add your eye cream. This is actually a
hydrating eye gel by Olay. I love it because again you
guys, the feels, all the feels. Another product that you can
put in the fridge and it feels amazing when it’s cooled. Which would them make it
like a cooling eye gel. Which sounds really cool. Doesn’t it look like it should be cool? The color and everything? Okay, so you’re pretty much
gonna take this, dab it. Use your ring finger. So I learned about this. You should always use your
ring finger when applying stuff to your eyes. Concealer, eye creams,
because I don’t know why, but it’s actually your most
delicate and most gentle finger. Doesn’t that just sound like
you can control the weight of your other ones? I don’t know why. This is what they say. Ring finger so I will use my ring finger to apply this Olay eye gel. And I kind of just put it
more so towards the corners of my eye which is what I
really want to be de-puffed. Just get in there. oh my God this feels so good. So at this point my face
has been washed, exfoliated. We have plumped up my eyes and
brightened and derma rolled. There’s a lot going on. But at this point I would
just put on my makeup. So that was my morning skincare routine. I hope that it was worth the wait. I can’t wait to hear
some of your suggestions of some products that I should be using or products that you love
to use in the morning. And guess what? There will be a nighttime
skincare routine coming up so wait for that. I can’t wait wait wait
to get all your comments. Make sure you comment below
