How have you all been? It’s been a long this week but it’s almost over & I’m looking forward to a fresh week! Today I wanted to share with you my current morning routine which has been getting me through the busy days lately. This post does include gifted items but all opinions are my own.
If I can, I like to get up in plenty time so that my morning doesn’t feel super rushed. The first thing I do when I wake up is have a cup of tea, otherwise I definitely won’t function. I know most people go for coffee, but I don’t really like it. I’ll also usually grab some breakfast too.
After that, I’ll have a Berocca (purchase here) to give me some extra energy for the day! I like the mango flavour but the orange one is really good too. I usually take my vitamins with this drink. I have a Multi-Vitamin (purchase here), and I sometimes take a Vitamin C (purchase here) tablet too! I find that I always feel generally better when I’ve been taking vitamins so it’s become an important part of my morning routine.
Next I’ll do my skin care routine & freshen up. I tend to have showers in the evening because drying my hair in the mornings is a lot of effort. Lately I’ve been using the No. 7 Nourishing Melting Gel Cleanser, (purchase here) followed by my day time moisturiser – the L’oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water, (purchase here)and then the Revolution Superfruit Extract Serum (purchase here).
Once I’m feeling all fresh, I’ll brush my teeth & use The Breath Co Fresh Breath Oral Rinse (purchase here).I really like this one as it’s a mild mint so it’s not too overpowering. It can’t just be me who finds super strong mint borderline painful? This mouthwash also tackles dry mouth too which is helpful for me! It’s usually after this that I get dressed, do my makeup & do my hair.
Before I leave the house I’ve been having one of the Grether’s Pastilles (purchase here). I’m still kind of fighting a winter cold and my throat is a little rough. I absolutely love these as they genuinely feel so smooth on my throat. They also taste lovely & juicy too so you can’t go wrong.
After that, I’m out the door!
It’s only fairly recently that I’ve started to really appreciate the time I have in the morning. Not too long ago I’d get up at the last minute, quickly get ready and then run out the door. I really feel like having this routine on a daily basis leaves me feeling so much more energised and happy.
What do you do in the mornings? Do we have a similar routine? Let me know in the comments below.
