skincare morning routine tips by Dr Liv

Hello you want to know what to apply first on your face in the morning You are sometimes confused because everybody says something different So first the cream, than the serum or first the serum than the cream than Sun cream then makeup or first makeup, and than Sun cream. Heahh?!? Do you want to know more stay with me. So I would like to explain it. Hi guys, as I said, I’m a dermatologist My name is Dr. Liv, Dr. Liv Kraemer. Right now I’m on conference here in Monaco and have a nice hotel room. So I just unpacked my iphone and headphones. Now i would like to explain you when to apply what on the face in the morning so first of all, if you wake up in the morning, by the way I don’t have makeup on, I just put a little bit eye shadow because otherwise I have so small eyes that you can’t barley see them, so this is the only thing I have on top. So therefore I would like to demonstrate what to do So, okay. Let’s start: you are waking up in the morning and go into the bathroom First of all guys: wash your hands right! It could be a soap It could be just handcleanser because we don’t want to know where your hands have been there’s a lot of bacteria because maybe you touched something on the floor you went to the bathroom I don’t even want to know….. therefore wash your hands first why?!? because you don’t want to get the bacteria from your hands into the face, You dont want to get no pimples. So bacteria are responsible for the pimples therefore wash your hands first. Let’s do this. So I’m washing my hands, now So, okay, perfect. Then I have a couple of towels. So this is my towel for my hands. I always use a For the face i like to use an extra towel. Therefore an own towel for the hands only For the face I like to use an extra towl. this here is actually too small because I’m here in a hotel. At home I have a little bit of bigger one, so not too big because if you’re using it so you are using just one small part of it therefore it is getting wet just on one part and you are never use the rest. if it’s too small like this It’s getting very quick dirty and wet. So ideally use a towel a little bit bigger than this one so this towel is than only for your face and the bigger one for your hands Okay So you washed your hands as I did now then you wash your face with the fruit acid foam… 2 pumps put water on your face, than the foam than wash your face wash your face with the fruit acid foam to remove all the dead skin cells from the face it might tingle, your face might turn a little bit red ,but it doesn’t matter now you rinse it off like i am doing it now than you tap dry it with your face towl Okay, so so far so good My face is no washed, dry. What I’m doing now? I’m doing now I am using now a serum. If you live in pollution rich cities you apply antioxidants if you’re suffering from acne you might have something what we dermatologists prescribed you. If you are lving in really pollution rich cities and you have an oily skin. So use serums, light creams which are watery based. If you suffer from dry skin use serums which is a little bit more oily. If you are suffering from acne or suffering from redness never use too oily serums, so watery based serums only. I have here some drops of a serum, which you put on your hand, on this top, never on the inside. Why?? because there are too many bacteria So you put this in your hands and you’re applying it Let me just do it -sorry i have to look in the camera to see if I am applying it right maybe another drop and Then you’re applying it. And yes, of course you can go also under the eyes. Why not You may be doing it this way. Not too much. And that’s it. Not too much. You do not have to bath in it! Okay as soon as it’s dry you can either apply the Sun cream immediately on. If you feel like your face is too dry you might don’t feel comfortable , then use a cream, like a day cream. But if you’re suffering from acne or from red skin than apply a very light base cream. I have another video explaining the different kind of basic creams So a very light cream. Again you put it here and not there because on the inside are too many bacteria You take into your hands and you are applying it. Let me just apply it. I hope is is visible. But the most important part apply the cream on your neck And the rest apply on your hands because of course the outside of the hands need a lot of care too and last but not least is the Sun cream So a nice portion and then you apply it on the skin I’m coming a little bit closer that you see how i am applying it Really all over. Also on the nose, never forget this part because it’s very important and of course, you can go kind of close, not too close because UVA filters in the Sun cream can actually make you cry or Get your tears out so try not to out it over the eyes just a little bit under the eyes and guys PLEASE don’t do this!!!! go around the eyes and mouth all around Over the lips, sure why not? They need care as well and then the rest on the hands And of course on the neck If you’re showing your decollete put it on the decollete as well because you want to keep it beautifull if you are a girl and you want to apply the makeup, NOW is the time to apply make-up on top I never using makeup on my face, just a little bit eye shaddow So normally I would apply now the eye makeup and of course I love lipstick and therefore I apply now my lipstick Okay, that’s actually is a good morning skincare routine Again 1. wash your hands in the morning first before you actually wash your face 2. wash your face right, dry it with an extra towel 3. Use than a serum never too oily if you suffering from acne or pimples or redness 4.Then a light basis cream “day cream” Ideally without SPF and then 5. an SPF extra, a very light one if you’re suffering from acne Why not using a gel? Watch the video about the different basis creams After the Sun cream then if you want to put your make-up on I hope it helps, give me some likes, some suggestions, please subscribe to my channel Don’t forget this to get more videos about different topics, next time about blackheads And yeah, see you then. Thank you for staying with me. Bye guys


  1. Hi Liv. I don't want to sound shallow but I love your T-shirt. Please how can I get a similar one. Thank you. Love your videos and presentation style. Thanks a lot.

  2. Dr. Live I would like to purchase your "skin care line" and I'm sure it's worth the money, but it's a little too expensive for me. Why do you never mention anything about your own products and is it possible to put a discount code under your videos so we can try that serum and the face wash of yours? Thanks in advance!

  3. Mam we don't need to use any toners before applying any serums which ingredients are important for oily skin serums

  4. Hi Dr Liv thanks for this video but I need to ask you a question. Do I have to apply the serum at night time as well?

  5. Dr. Im having a hard time fining a hand wash that doez not overdry my hands! Please advised! Also a hand cream! I have to wash my hands regulary! Thank you ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  6. What do you think about a serum that states on the instructions for night ;can you use it during the day? Where can i fine your video for day creams ? I like to know the name of your products?

I heard dermarolling is good for this please advised!

  7. Dr. Liv, I love your videos. You're so knowledgeable …I been having a skin problem for about 5 months now. My whole face was red , with pimple like bumps all over, looked like I had chicken pox.. I never had this before, ..went to a dermatologist. She gave me an antibiotic and face ointment to put on 7 days, .I felt it was getting a little better but it didn't , went back to doctor , she gave me a topical antibiotic, metron, I felt it made it worse, the ones under my eyes right now look like welts. The ones on my cheeks look like they got a little better, and the bumps are only on top chest too. It's only on my face and my top chest. I'm so frustrated , and feeling embarrassed to go out. Any suggestions? I know it's hard when you can't see it. She also told me to use CeraVe so I am , and using a towel just for my face. Thankyou for listening ,, I appreciate it… also, my face feels very dry…(and also I'm 58 and this is all new to me ) ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’›

  8. I love her!! So authentic and real and fun and low-key adorbs!! Thank you for the awesome helpful advice Dr. Liv! You have cleared up so much confusion for me! And I know I can trust your routine because you are a dermatologist. Please keep the videos coming!!

  9. Hi Dr. Liv! I'm 19 and I live in a tropical country, I'm trying to create a skincare routine but I'm getting so many mix informations about it.

    I have combination skin and I don't really get pimples, except for my t-zone area.

    most video say Cleanser, toner, moisturizer, serum, sunscreen. do I really need a toner or can I just cleanse, apply serum, and sunscreen?

    thank you so much!

  10. Dr. Liv thank you so much for your very informative videos. Just saw your video once and I kept on watching more because as you said you are not a โ€œYouTuberโ€!your an angel!๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡I got an oily skin and I perspire a lot up to the point my face is dripping so much. I keep on using cream and oil which is actually wrong as I learned from you. Thank you so much for your free lessons coming from a high profile dermatologist!Godbless!

  11. my face has a burning sensation after i apply my UV cream on my skin but normalize after about 30sec. Is that ok?

  12. Please do not leave the water running while scrubbing the face. Painful to listen to water being wasted. Thank you.

  13. Hello, Any suggestions on which face wash or serum to use? I have rosacea and dry skin around my cheeks only. I've tried very expensive skin care brands like Channel, Christian Dior, Clinique which was the worst, also, Bobby Brown, Estee Lauder , and some more natural ones too but they dry my skin or give me pimples or makes my rosacea worst. I go every couple of months to the dermatologist and the creams for rosacea are no better on my skin. Sometimes I even get rashes. For the most part it's under control because I barely wear make up and wash my face with a sensitive skin soap like Cetaphil but I don't have an anti aging routine since I haven't found any creams that are worth it. Thanks…

  27. Hi Dr. Liv
    I recently subscribed your channel and I am simply loving all your videos that I have watched so far. ๐Ÿ˜
    I have a question doc. what kind of serum I should use for normal skin? My current morning routine is washing my face and applying a moisturizer that has hyaluronic acid and spf 30 . That's it. And I am planning to use a Vitamins C serum in my morni g routine. Can you please tell me how do I do it and what precautions to take while using a Vitamin C serum? TIA.
    Love from Denmark ๐ŸŒน

  28. Vielen Dank fรผr die tollen Videos ๐Ÿ˜ Vor allem find ich es super, dass alle Schritte auch ausgefรผhrt/ vorgemacht werden.

  29. Hi Dr. Liv I hope you'll notice this comment. I'm already 20 years old and i'm using a rejuvenating set , i noticed that my cheeks have combination of pigmentations like pink red and brown, they become so visible as time comes by as i continue on using it. Can you help me about this? If i stop on using the product as well i get a lot of pimples.

  30. I live in Alaska with air humidity in winter 20%!!! Serums and water-based stuff is not enough. We have to use oil-based everything to lock in the moisture in the skin.

  31. May I have the list of the products you used? I think it's nice if I use it too. And I have an oily skin, hope it was okay to use the products you used

  32. Please could you give product recommendations? I understand if this would be a conflict of interest but if you could direct us to maybe some of your favourite brands, that would be great. Thanks. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

  33. I believe that Dr has this amazing skin not just of the skincare routine but she also has a healthy lifestyle๐ŸŒฑโš˜๐ŸŒฟ
