Your morning skincare routine can ruin or make your day, and skin. But I will let you in on a secret today. Your skincare routine’s success depends on the products that you will be using on your skin.
And straightaway, I can tell you that they do not come any better than what the Robin McGraw Revelation Luxury skincare line brings you.
Whether you are the kind of person who has a heavy morning routine for skincare, or a light one, there is a perfect kit for you, with just the right products.
But why should you choose the Robin McGraw Revelation morning skincare kit?
Since 2016, Robin McGraw Revelation, which was found by Dr. Phil’s wife Robin, has been bringing women top-rated, luxurious but affordable skincare products.
As Robin has consistently said in many media interviews, she wants women to be empowered. She believes that when women take good care of themselves, they can give better care to the people they love.
Why do a morning routine when you can just wear makeup?
You can’t believe how many women believe that all they need during the day is makeup on the face.
Of course, makeup will make you feel great. But your skin will not look great when you remove that makeup or as it advances in age. Your skincare routine needs to be comprehensive, well-thought-out and executed.
While the temptation to apply your makeup and go to work is high, we recommend you get into a proper morning skincare routine. That way, you are going to achieve a flawless, smooth, and moisturized skin.
The good thing with going with the Robin McGraw skincare routines is that there is a kit for nightly skincare, morning, and daytime.
For instance, to wake up to a plump, firmer and moisturized skin in the morning, apply the nighttime skin moisturizer called Hydra Qwench.
To keep the moisture that you infused in your skin overnight locked in during the day, apply the daytime treatment. Windup with a good sunscreen to protect your skin from the UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
The bottom line, as Robin would say, is… never neglect your morning routine even when life gets too busy. She says she has never allowed Dr. Phil to leave the house without applying sunscreen, whether he is going out to play tennis, or to the office.
Besides, she also says that she makes Dr. Phil use the Foaming Joy facial cleanser. This cleanser is superb at removing makeup and dirt your skin collects from the environment before bedtime. You can also use it for cleansing the skin in the morning before applying makeup.
What is in the Robin McGraw morning skincare routine kit?
The name of this skincare kit is the Morning Pick Me Up package, and it contains three products. These are:
- Dot Your Eyes Power Peptide Cream
- Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Serum
- 50 Fierce Broad Spectrum Sunscreen with 50+ SPF
This is the complete package, and after applying the products as required, you can apply makeup too. With consistent usage as advised, you will maintain excellent skin health during the day.
While they have not included the Foaming Joy deep skin cleanser in this package, it is very necessary. Actually, you should never start on any skincare routing without cleansing the skin first.
Get the Foaming Joy Purifying Facial Cleanser, and always use it to remove makeup, or cleanse the skin before you can apply other treatments.
Dot Your Eyes Power Peptide Cream
One of the most neglected parts of the body is the eyes. But Robin McGraw set out to address this with a luxury cream that is specifically made for the thin skin of the eyes. This is the Dot Your Eyes Power Peptide Cream.
If your skin starts losing its elasticity and firmness, the first telltale signs appear around the eyes. They can come in the form of crow’s feet, puffiness around the eyes, baggage, and dark circles.
The Dot Your Eyes cream is not the ordinary eye care cream that most people are used to. It is a luxury cream, that has an almost instant effect at lowering the puffiness around the eyes.
Like all the other Robin McGraw Revelation skincare products, even this one is formulated on the Dynamic Infusion Technology.
Robin has said several times that this patented technology delivers the ingredients fast. She says it delivers the ingredients 26 times faster than the traditional creams. This gives the user more instant results.
While there is really no way to quantify whether indeed it delivers ingredients to the skin 26 times faster, Dot Your Eyes cream does not leave a sticky feeling on the skin.
It is absorbed fast, and because of this, none of the cream is wasted to evaporation and you don’t have to wipe any away. This means that you can use a far smaller quantity of this cream but still get the desired results.
Fast acting ingredients
This cream will penetrate the skin, and work from within, on a cellular level. One thing I noticed when I started using this product is that it does not irritate my skin, or make it itchy.
My skin did feel a bit tight the first time I applied it, but I realized that I had not massaged it in properly.
Robin has always provided the highest quality, natural ingredients in all of her products. In this one, the key active ones include the power peptides.
These are very good for fighting wrinkles, and firming up the skin, and brightening the dark circles that appear under the eyes.
Jojoba seed oil is similar to the natural skin oil, so it keeps the skin moisturized. It can also prevent breakouts, and other skin conditions.
Cnidium Monnieri Fruit Extract is an anti-itching agent and an antimicrobial. Artemisia Annua Extract is rich in polyphenols and flavonoids, so it prevents inflammation.
Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract is also included generously in this cream. It kick-starts the lipolysis (fat breakdown) process, and that is how it is able to lower inflammation around the eyes.
There are tens more ingredients that benefit the skin and some that have been added to enhance the shelf life of the cream.
You can use this cream in the morning and at night to clear wrinkles and lines, and to prevent the formation of new creases.
Using this cream consistently enhances the production of collagen, which keeps the skin naturally firmer and more elastic.
Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Cream
Robin specifically says that the Hydra Qwench cream is a nighttime cream, so you may wonder what it is doing in a skincare package for morning routine.
It is not there by mistake, but it is indeed smart to treat your eyes the night before, so that you can wake up to a healthy skin the following morning.
One thing that I realized when I started using the Hydra Qwench cream is that in the morning, I woke up to a plumper, tighter, and well-nourished skin. This boosted my confidence to face the day ahead.
Dr. Phil says Robin forces her to use the Hydra Qwench moisturizer every night. I, too, have made it part of my nightly routine. My hitherto dry and chapped skin is now a thing of the past. My skin feels soft and firm to the touch.
Whether you have oily, dry, normal, or acne-prone skin, this moisturizer is very good for your skin. It is going to keep it well hydrated until morning, as it infuses its nutrients into the skin overnight. The cream is lightweight, so it never feels sticky on the skin.
If you have dry skin, apply this cream on the skin every night, and after a week or two, you will have kick-started the skin’s natural moisturization process.
As with all of the other Robin McGraw Revelation products, Robin did not skimp on the research and development of this cream. It is a formulation of high quality, and natural ingredients.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the main active ingredients. It is added to skincare creams because of the tens of benefits it has for the skin.
It also makes the skin stronger, more flexible and able to stretch. This helps to clear the lines and wrinkles, even the ones that form along the expression lines. When your skin gets more flex, it will stretch when you laugh and retain its smooth form when you stop laughing.
Other ingredients include shea butter, which is one of the biggest skin moisturization agents in the market. It smooths and clears the symptoms of aging from the skin.
There is also the Dendrobium Nobile Extract, which has anti-inflammatory qualities. Niacinamide boosts the strength of the skin barrier, locking in the hydration so that moisturization lasts longer.
Using the Hydra Qwench cream is very easy. At night, use the Foaming Joy facial cleanser to remove all the makeup that you had applied during the day. Apply one pump of the hydrating cream and massage it gently into the facial skin.
This is how Dr. Phil has maintained excellent skin on his face, by using the Hydra Qwench cream daily. If you are younger, imagine what this cream can do for you.
50 Fierce Broad Spectrum Sunscreen with 50+ SPF
As I mentioned, Robin says she has never let Dr. Phil step out of the house without wearing the 50 Fierce sunscreen. It is a two-in-one product since it is a sunscreen as well as a moisturizer.
It deflects the UVA and UVB rays, and prevents them from penetrating the skin. These are the rays that cause skin aging, and sunburn. Some of the ingredients used in its formulation neutralize the free radicals, which cause skin inflammation.
This is a daytime use cream, so you are going to apply it with your morning skincare routine. It is the last product in the morning skincare kit from Robin McGraw that you should apply.
One question that most people ask is when they should apply sunscreen. Ideally, you should apply this after cleansing the face and after applying the moisturizer.
You can also apply makeup after the sunscreen. Just give the sunscreen some time to sink into the skin and to dry up, and then apply your makeup.
Applying sunscreen is critical in every daytime skincare routine. When you do not use it, your skin sustains wrinkles easily, uneven tone, and damaged complexion. The skin starts peeling from sunburns.
In fact, if you do not use sunscreen, it can negate the results of all the other treatments that you have applied on your skin. The sun rays are also strong enough to penetrate the dermis layer of the skin, causing damage at the cellular level.
Looking at the ingredients used to make the 50 Fierce sunscreen, you can see where it gets its robust power.
This sunscreen is one of the most reviewed products in the Revelation lineup. Thus, I found a lot of information about its ingredients from different sources. The main active ingredients are:
Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant that enables the cells to regenerate fast. This way, the ones damaged by the sun are replaced fast. It also prevents the thinning of the skin, and the development of lines, and wrinkles.
The 50 Fierce also contains a peptide complex that repairs worn out cells. It does this by activating the production of collagen in the skin cells. Collagen firms the skin and makes it more elastic.
Robin McGraw included vitamin C in this sunscreen because of its antioxidant qualities. It removes free radicals and other toxins that cause fast aging, and cell damage.
Vitamin C is also good for brightening the skin, so this sunscreen helps to promote even skin tone and complexion.
Including the green tea-leaf extract is genius because of its anti-inflammatory qualities. It also helps in exfoliating the pores, preventing acne breakouts, and helping the skin to retain moisture for hours. Because of its anti-inflammatory benefits, it can lower the baggage under the eyes.
To use this sunscreen, first, clean the skin with the Foaming Joy purifying cleanser. It reaches deep into the pores and removes all the grime, and the dead cells lodged inside.
You can then apply your moisturizer and give it time to be absorbed fully. After the skin soaks it all up, apply the sunscreen. If you are going out in the hot sun, you might want to reapply the 50 Fierce sunscreen after every few hours.
Simple morning skincare routine to follow
One of the most helpful beauty tips from Robin McGraw is … “When you exfoliate your skin at night, a simple morning wash reveals the skin’s natural glow. A simple morning skincare routine can give results that can last for hours.”
As you can see from the above statement, a proper morning skincare routine starts the night before. For instance, no matter how tired you feel, never go to bed without removing your makeup properly.
By using the Robin McGraw Foaming Joy skin cleanser at night, you give the skin time to exfoliate. This cleanser breaks the bonds between the dead skin cells, making the skin easy to clean in the morning. A simple wash will reveal its natural glow.
Do not rely on using makeup alone to form your daytime skincare routine. Rather, you should give it a full treatment to help preserve its natural glow, complexion and health.
The good thing is that your morning skin treatment does not have to take too long. It need not take more than 15 minutes, and you will be ready for work.
Here are the steps to follow every morning:
1. Cleanse the skin
This is the first step, not only for the morning skincare treatment, but for the nighttime routines as well. You should never apply any treatment on the skin without cleansing it.
In this case, we recommend you use the Foaming Joy cleanser, which will get rid of all the dirt, toxins, and bacteria on the skin. If you ignore to cleanse it, these things will be lodged in the pores, and they will cause skin breakouts.
It is recommended that you wash your face at least two times a day, once in the morning, and once at night. But in this case, dip your fingers in warm water and use them to apply the Foaming Joy cleanser. It will lift all the dead cells, toxins, and grease from the skin.
2. Apply a toner
Most morning skincare routines forget to mention the toner, as some people prefer going straight to the moisturizer after cleansing the skin.
However, over the time that I have been giving my skin a spa treatment at home, I have always used a toner. I am a heavy makeup user. I like using a toner to lift the grease or dirt that might linger after cleansing. Skin toners also infuse moisture into the dermis, and hydration is the pillar of skincare.
If you have a toner, use it after the cleanser is dry. If you do not have it, you can skip to the moisturizer, especially if you don’t apply heavy makeup.
You can buy a more comprehensive skincare kit for morning treatment from Robin McGraw. It all depends on your needs. For instance, if you have blemishes, you need to include a skin brightener in the kit.
3. Use your anti-aging serum
You can apply the hyaluronic acid serum from Robin McGraw. This is a high quality, medical-grade HA serum.
This beauty serum has advanced hydrating qualities. It infuses moisture into the skin at the cellular level. When the cells absorb water, they become inflated, making them bigger. This is how they cause the skin to stretch, in the process diminishing the fine lines and wrinkles.
To apply the Hyaluronic acid serum, place it in dots in various places on your face, and then massage it into the skin.
The serum is safe for all of your face, but you should pay more attention to the areas that have wrinkles. After massaging it into the skin, give it time to dry, before you apply the moisturizer.
4. Applying your moisturizer
The clinical-grade hyaluronic acid from Robin McGraw Revelation is a beauty serum and a moisturizer, but it is not enough.
You still might need to apply a hydrant, such as the Hydra Qwench moisturizer. Although it is mostly used at night, you can still use it during the day.
The good thing with the Hydra Qwench moisturizer is that it locks in the moisture. Therefore, there is minimal water loss from the skin during the day. Using this moisturizer keeps the skin hydrated for hours.
Regardless of your skin type, this moisturizer is going to work just fine. It is lightweight, and with the Dynamic Infusion Technology, it is absorbed into the skin very fast.
It does not leave a sticky feeling on the skin, does not cause itching, or any type of irritation. Most importantly, it does not clog the skin pores.
5. Apply your eye treatment cream
Apply the Dot Your Eyes Power Peptide Cream on the corners of the eyes, and on the skin around the eyes.
Take care not to let any of the cream get inside the eyes. Dab a little of the cream on your fingertip, and massage it firmly into the skin.
The eye care cream tightens the skin around the eyes, helps to drain the fluid in the cells that causes the baggage, and helps to clear the dark circles.
Pay special attention to the corners of the eyes. Eye movement causes the crow’s feet, and with time, they become deeper wrinkles.
6. Apply your sunscreen
Applying the 50 Fierce broad spectrum sunscreen is the last step in your morning skincare routine.
You should never step out of the house without applying your sunscreen! You need it to ward off the UVA and UVB rays of the sun. UVA rays penetrate the dermis and cause fast aging, while UVB rays cause sunburns.
If you use makeup, apply it after the sunscreen.
Wrapping it up
The best morning skincare routine should contain at least three products, that is, on the bare minimum. These are the moisturizer, eye care cream, and sunscreen.
And this is what you will get from the Robin McGraw Revelation Morning Pick Me Up Package. It is also a money saver, because you will pay cheaper than you would pay if you ordered the products individually.
Remember these important things when applying your morning skin treatment:
