My Morning Beauty Regime

my morning beauty regime
Every morning I like to get up super early and one of the main reason being is I am a mum and I need to get my kids ready for school and also get their and my partners breakfast ready all before 8.30am. Before all of that I like to spend a little bit of time on me with my beauty regime and it usually starts at 6am every morning and I like to start it off by making a mug of sweet coffee to help wake me up for the day ahead then my beauty regime comes in to play.

Over the last few years my skincare regime has improved drastically, I went from only using a Nivea cream to have a drawer full of amazing skincare products for many different uses including my face, under eyes, feet, hands and also body. 

The first thing I do is wash my face with warm water and I just love it because its quite refreshing and also helps me wake up. I then use a cleanser and my favourite at the moment is the body shops tea tree foam cleanser as its very mild on my sensitive skin. After that I like to sometimes use a serum as they soak into the skin like dream my favourite to use at the moment is Dr Botanicals orange superfood oil as its smells very refreshing and leaves my skin feeling very smooth and lastly makes it easier for me apply my last skincare product which is a moisturiser. My go to moisturiser at the moment is Nip and Fabs kale fix moisturiser its smells like aloe and cucumbers and very refreshing to start the day off. Its also great because it is a great base for makeup too. 

My hair has been dyed many times over the years and I have enjoyed have many different shades of hair but it really has taken its toll on my hair so I always include my haircare in my morning beauty routine

Every week I like to put on a deep conditioner on my hair and leave it on for 20 minutes and it helps to restore moisture to my hair so it's so much easier to style. I always like to brush my hair with a tangle teezer because it doesn't pull or damage my hair. I also like to put on a hair serum and my hair likes to soak up all the oil and make it smoother.

I think this is just as important as the skincare and the haircare as a healthy breakfast helps give me energy till lunch time. My favourite breakfast choices are porridge, a banana with matcha tea or a nice sweet coffee. 

Now as much as I love makeup I don't wear it everyday but when I do I like to use my pebble grey mirror because it has a light on it which helps me put my makeup on correctly it also has a mirror which is 3x magnified and thats just amazing because it makes it so much easier to put my eyeliner and lipstick on perfectly.

My go to foundation is my urban decay naked foundation as its quite light weight but its also quite build able  for a more coverage foundation. The rest of my makeup is usually very random because I like to change my look everyday.

What is you're morning routine?

    It's so nice to have some time to yourself in the morning before dealing with everything else you need to do for the day. You have a great routine that is focused on taking care of yourself and that is wonderful x

    1. Thanks, I'm very happy with my routine that I have

    Sometimes i do get quite lazy in the morning and don't bother with my skincare x

  • I like to take my time getting ready when I can. Breakfast is my first priority, then beauty regime sounds similar. Cleanse, tone and then maybe spot cream, moisturise and primer before going to make porridge or a favourite cereal x

  • I wish I could get up that early everyday and have a routine like this but I don't think I could manage it! I do end up rushing a lot and have managed to get my make up routine down to about ten minutes, but I don't really wear much

  • I love the sound of the orange super oil. I wish I had more of a routine but it is normally me running out the door and running for a train lol x

    Great skincare routine. I too don't wear makeup every single day so skincare is really important. Loving the mirror x

    My morning routine always includes moisturizer after I come out of the shower, and then after I am dressed I do my make up x

    I try to do a deep condition for my hair every 3 to 4 washes as it really makes a difference as mine is colour damaged too.

  • I really need a better skin care routine. I wash my face in the morning, but that's about it.

  • I dont wear a full face of make up everyday either, but I am never without mascara x

  • Love that mirror! Mine's quite lax at the minute as I've got a newborn and having barely any sleep haha
