Morning Routines . What I use and why .

Of late I’ve been trying to round out my morning routines to make sure I’m covering as many bases possible ingredient wise , whilst still maintaining joy.

The key factors are Vitamin C , Hydration and Spf 50+ everything around that is about soothing and promoting a moisturised complexion. I will be including my 3 different types of routines to show when I include exfoliants and masks.

The brands aren’t whats important a well balanced routine can be achieved on any budget and not everyones skin can handle as many layers. This is what works for me at this time so I’m sticking with it.

This routine I do about 3 times per week. Starting with an oil cleanser then onto eye cream. I then mix a few drops of a hyaluronic serum with a vitamin c . A few drops of oil mixed with a soothing balm. Brush my teeth then apply a moisturiser. After doing my hair I then apply spf 50+

My morning routines look somewhat drawn out,  and to the uncharitable,  convoluted. The main reason I am able to spend so much time is due to the fact that I consider starting the day feeling calm and balanced essential to my wellbeing.

I lean heavily towards green beauty in the mornings or sometimes lunchtime when I wake up. I find due to the beautiful aromas and textures of green beauty its an absolute joy to begin my day with them.

The main focus of the routines is cleanse, hydration, antioxidant protection , more hydration all capped off with spf . If your day routine doesn’t end with at least a Spf 30+ then everything that precedes it is for nothing.

Twice a week I will use either a hydrating or soothing mask. Starting with an oil cleanser then a mask and onto eye cream. I then mix a few drops of a hyaluronic serum with a vitamin c . A few drops of oil mixed with a soothing balm. Brush my teeth then apply a moisturiser. After doing my hair I then apply spf 50+

When it comes to day routines Im not trying to fight any crimes such as pigmentation or ageing . I just focus on hydration and prevention of further crimes against my face caused by sun and pollution and occasionally my own ignorance. The other massive benefit of these routines are that I start my day feeling absolutely blissed out and that can only be a good thing.

At the moment I’ve introduced some new products and am looking forward to seeing how they go. For me the importance is that a product in each of my essential categories is present . The brand and price are about personal preferences , green , traditional, budget or luxury . Use what makes you happy and thats all that matters , there are so many phenomenal options .

And once a week I will add a gentle physical exfoliant. Starting with an oil cleanser then apply the exfoliant I like to let it sit for a few minutes before removing gently then onto eye cream. I then mix a few drops of a hyaluronic serum with a vitamin c . A few drops of oil mixed with a soothing balm. Brush my teeth then apply a moisturiser. After doing my hair I then apply spf 50+

So there you have it all the different ways I like to start the day as you can see I like to go for it in the mornings . If I’m masking the I wear it in the shower to protect my face so whilst it looks extremely time consuming my actual time in front of the mirror is only around 10 minutes but if not in a rush I take up to half an hour.

What are you favourite ingredients to focus on in the morning ?

Beautiful products to choose from! I also tend to use a vitamin c in the morning, plus SPF, of course 😉 I save my hyaluronic acid serum for evening but I’ve been using an essence twice a day for an added layer of hydration. Too soon to say if it’s helping. I also take my hydrating layers up under my eyes before eye cream. Thanks for sharing, Genaya!
