Not a Morning Person? This Skincare Routine Is for You
Posted by Samantha Lawson
Maybe that 6am wake up call isn't your thing. Many of us need a little help rising, shining and feeling like the best version of ourselves. The good news is that feeling energised and ready to kick off the day doesn't have to be a challenge.
A few simple changes to your morning skincare routine can make a meaningful, lasting difference.
Tip 1: Wash your sleepiness away
Morning showers aren't only refreshing, they can also be highly energising (IF you're using the right products). The products you decide to use can make or break your shower experience. To make your morning power shower work its hardest for you, opt for a new body wash with ingredients that take care of your skin, and also pep up your mind and body. After all, you're using it every day, and it’s those small daily rituals that are the easiest to turn into wellbeing moments.
If you're looking for something gentle on your skin that'll also give you an uplifting effect, you can try this Great Day Hand & Body Wash. It's made with soothing aloe vera (one of our favourite ingredients) that'll help soften skin. It also contains seaweed and pomegranate for a thorough cleanse.
Tip 2: Nourish skin and lotion up!
Moisturising is one of the most important things we can do for our bodies. Just like you, your skin needs a little love (and hydration) too. We heart natural. In fact, we go nuts for smothering our skin in the good, natural, hydrating, and fast-absorbing stuff.
Our Complete Bliss Hand & Body Lotion blends 100% natural fragrances and is full of nourishing shea butter to leave your skin feeling softer and more moisturised than ever. Not only does shea butter soften skin, but it also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. So before you go out and buy just any lotion, have a look at the ingredients list first.
Tip 3: Keep your skin glowing
Body moisturised? Tick. OK, so let’s move on to your face. Cleanser, serum, moisturiser—that's a good order to remember. Don't worry, we'll walk you through it.
Always start with a cleanse. After a good night's sleep, you want to rid your face of any grime that's built up before throwing any other products into the mix. Skip the makeup wipes (which can be harsh on your skin and bad for the environment) and opt for a face wash that's packed with natural extracts and the perfect amount of essential oils.
A lightweight face serum can do wonders, amping up your skin's health as soon as it’s absorbed. They're the unsung heroes of skincare ingredients.
Our Great Day Glow Face Serum (or as we like to call it, sunshine in a bottle) will leave your skin super soft and glowing. With a brilliant blend of rose, mandarin and peppermint essential oils, it's the perfect thing to help you feel fresh in the morning.
Like we said before, moisturising is super, super important. No matter your skin type, moisturiser is the one thing that'll keep your skin barrier as healthy as it can be. It'll also make sure those products underneath stay put and get to work.
You're ready to go!
If you combine these tips with a healthy diet and a good amount of sleep, you'll be on your way to feeling energised in the morning in no time. We love to keep it simple because we know life can get busy, and that's why we love a short, but effective, morning routine. Before you know it, these natural, skin-loving options will be your best friends from the moment you wake up, to the moment you head to bed.
