My morning routine consist of a 3 step process which is cleanse, tone and moisturize.  First I cleanse my face with my Clarisonic Mia 2 along with Murad Acne Complex Clarifying Cleanser. I often deal with breakouts with my skin being combination to oily in my t-zone area and I have found that Murad Acne Complex Clarifying Cleanser has been working to keep my breakouts to a minimum. In combination with the cleanser I also recommend using a facial cleanser brush system such as the Clarisonic, which I know can be pricey,  but a good alternative I use before purchasing my Clarisonic was the Ulta Dual Action Cleansing Brush System. I can really tell the different is if I don't use my Clarisonic, if you have sensitive skin you may not want to use the cleansing brush daily. My second step is toning, currently I'm using Michael Todd's Organic Lemon  AHA + DMAW toner. I just apply the toner to a cotton round and wipe gently across my face. My third step is to moisturize and currently I'm using Murad Acne Complex Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++  this product helps with oil control, it has a thick consistency but easy to apply and has not cause an issue when apply makeup over it.
