Beauty bloggers know a lot about skincare. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s because theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re constantly testing products (trust us when we tell you that they can get hundreds of new ones sent to them every week). So who better to ask for skin-care advice than the women who review products for a living? These top bloggers reveal their morning skin-care routinesÃ¢â‚¬”many of which can be seven steps or more and include everything from inexpensive drugstore finds to total splurges. Find out what anti-aging products, eye creams, sunscreens, and more they rely on to get ready every day.
Alexis founded The Beauty Bean in 2010, where she covers beauty, wellness, and fitness. The bicoastal blogger (she divides her time between Los Angeles and New York City) has a particular interest in DIY beauty. She released her first book, The Recipe for Radiance, which features more than 100 DIY skin and hair ideas, in April 2014.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“First things first, I always start the day by drinking a few glasses of water,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Alexis. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our bodies lose so much moisture overnight, so the sooner you can replace it, the better.Ã¢â‚¬Â Alexis says she doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t usually wash her face in the morning because her skin tends to be dry. Instead, she starts her day by applying an antioxidant-rich serumÃ¢â‚¬”Skinceuticals C E Ferulic ($157, skinceuticals.com) is her favoriteÃ¢â‚¬”followed by a few drops of an olive oil moisturizer mixed with either a blend of essential oils or a few drops of tea tree oil, depending on how her skin feels that day. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I follow that with multiple swipes of Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush SPF 50 ($62, colorescience.com), a powdered SPF that can go on over makeup,Ã¢â‚¬Â she says.

Amber, whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s based in New York City, started sharing her hilarious opinions on beauty in 2006. Formerly known as Beauty Blogging Junkie, her site recently underwent a makeover and is now known as Rouge 18.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I start by cleansing with my long-term love, Chanel Mousse Douceur ($45, macys.com), which IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll use with my Clarisonic Mia ($99, sephora.com) a few times a week if I feel I need a bit more exfoliation,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Amber. She also uses Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads ($12, sephora.com) a few times a week for a faux bronze.

Christine has years of experience as a fashion magazine editor, and sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been sharing her passion for fashion, beauty, and fitness on her blog NYC Pretty since 2011. The New York City gal is also an independent stylist.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Each day, I always rinse my face in the morning with just water since I remove all makeup at night,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Christine. Ã¢â‚¬Å“It's best to not strip the skin of its natural oils with cleansers each morning if the skin is already clean.Ã¢â‚¬Â Christine then spritzes on a rosewater facial spray, followed by a hydrating serum and a lightweight moisturizer with an SPF of 30 or higher. Ã¢â‚¬Å“If I'm running around to appointments, I sometimes like to carry Mario Badescu Facial Spray ($7, mariobadescu.com) or Yes to Carrots Nourishing Gentle Cleansing Wipes ($5, drugstore.com) to freshen up and touch up my makeup [throughout the day],Ã¢â‚¬Â she says.

Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wash my face in the morning since my skin is dry [and] sensitive,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Jamie. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I usually splash my face with some water and then use a Q-tip to get off any excess eye makeup that found its way onto my face during my sleep.Ã¢â‚¬Â When it comes to moisturizers, Jamie rotates between KiehlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream SPF 30 ($52, kiehls.com) and Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair SPF 30 ($22, ulta.com). Ã¢â‚¬Å“TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re both moisturizers with broad-spectrum SPF protection, and best of all, they still work really well on my dry skin.Ã¢â‚¬Â Jamie always carries Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($57, colorescience.com) in her purse and car. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Since itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mineral sunscreen, it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t break down in the heat," she says. "And itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s easy to apply while IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m driving or on the go."
