My days are never the same, and they usually get really crazy. I normally don’t have a lot of time in the mornings, but there are a few things I try to do every morning. Today, I’m sharing my morning routine with you. And my advise? Take some time for yourself in the mornings, that way you will be able to be a better/nicer person all day !
RISE AND SHINE
I usually wake up at about 8:30 am when I do not have to be at school (or anywhere else). When I have to attend classes, I wake up at 6:30 am. In the weekends, when I have to go to work, I wake up at 5 am. I don’t mind waking up early, but I hate waking up to the sound of an alarm.
FLUFFY ANIMALS EVERYWHERE
The first thing I do in the morning… Cuddling our pets ! We have 3 dogs and 2 cats ,they are adorable and always so happy to see you in the morning. Sometimes, in the weekends when I’m at home, I take them upstairs to cuddle in bed with me.
COFFEE AND INSTAGRAM
I go up to the kitchen and make myself a coffee and some breakfast. I’m addicted to greek yoghurt, granola and some fruit, so that’s what I have most of the times. I check my instagram and other social media while I sip my coffee and enjoy my breakfast.
SKINCARE IS EVERYTHING
My skin care routine isn’t the same every day, it depends on how my skin is looking and on how much time I have. On the weekends, I try to pamper my skin by using a facial mask or scrub.
First, I start by cleansing my face. Lately I’m using a cleansing gel from Vichy, which I got for free and I really like (and omg, it smells amazing) but unfortunately, it’s not cruelty free. I put some gel on my hand, add some water and wash my face.
Next, I use a little micellar cleansing water from Nuxe on a cotton pad to cleanse my face (especially when I had make up on the evening before). Some days I only use the cleansing gel, other days both and some days I only use the micellar water.
Once a week I try to use a soft exfoliating product to exfoliate, smooth and soften my skin. I love to use the Nuxe one with red berries.
After cleansing my skin, I apply a face cream. This crème prodigieuse from Nuxe moisturises, revives and protects the skin from oxidative stress. It has a silky, non-greasy texture and is quickly absorbed
After my skincare I normally do my makeup. I add a few drops of the Pai Rosehip oil to my foundation ’cause I really like how it prevents my skin from breaking out from the makeup.
Lately I have been using a cream/gel from La Roche-Posay every evening and though it doesn’t belong in this morning routine blogpost, I really wanted to mention it. It made my skin look a lot better already and I really notice a difference in redness.
To wrap up my morning skincare routine I put some Nuxe huile prodiguise oil in my hair and on my arms and neck/chest.
After applying my makeup, doing my hair and brushing my teeth I hop into my clothes and I’m ready to start my day ! Interested in more pictures from my day, outfits, skincare products,… definitely follow me on instagram where I post regularly !
Hope you’ve enjoyed this blogpost!
