My morning beauty routine is …
I cleanse my skin with La Mer Cleansing foam followed by Dr. Barbara Sturm Cleansing enzyme. I’m in love with SkinCeuticals treatment serums. I use usually three to four of their products and rub them into my skin. Lastly a sunscreen by Dr. Barbara Sturm Sun drops to protect my skin from the sun.
