The morning is the most essential time of day to prep and care for your skin. Here, we’re going to guide you through exactly what to do, so you’re skin glows all day long.
1. Start your morning skin routine slowly
There’s nothing worse than missing an alarm and having to rush. We like to make our mornings matter and a simple skincare routine can bring back the ritual of easing into the day. Why not leave a full, covered glass of lemon water next to your bed? Set your alarm 10 minutes earlier and drink on waking for a hydrating, zesty wake up call, while you snuggle under the covers for an extra few minutes.
2. Find your best cleanser
We recommend one that combines a Toner and a Cleanser in one, try the Estala Toning Cleanser. Whatever you choose, our tip is to cleanse before you hit the shower. Too much hot water can strip skin of much-needed moisture.
For moisturizers to work their best, apply them within a few minutes of stepping out of the shower. This way, your skin will lock in moisture from your shower and retains it in your skin.
4. Be kind to your skin at the breakfast table
It’s time for breakfast! Some additions to your morning smoothie can be your skin’s best friend. Blueberries? Packed with Vitamin K and Vitamin C, and also known for their antioxidant benefits. Lovely mangoes? Well-known to include skin-loving antioxidants like Beta-carotene. Adding a glass of water (or a few blocks of ice!) to your smoothies is a good way to up your daily intake of H2O, too.
