Every single person has some type of routine, right? Here are a few things I do without fail every morning before I leave for work.
Brush my teeth, wash my face, tone, and ice roll.
Ya know, the normal “first things you do when you wake up” things. I don’t go through my entire nighttime skincare routine (I’m working on updating this post, but it’s still pretty accurate) because I just don’t feel the need to and I really don’t have that much time. A quick cleanse to get off my sleeping mask and a quick use of toner and that’s pretty much it. I like to do a quick ice roll while I’m picking out my outfit for work.
Put on moisturizer + SPF.
It took me quite a while to incorporate this into my routine. But I knew I needed to do it. My go to is Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum (SPF 50). It not only protects you from the sun, but also from pollution and blue light. Another great feature is that it helps even skin tone. Not much more I could ask for in a product!
Ok, so I haven’t made the switch to natural deodorant (yet), but every morning I obviously can never leave the house without my Dove Dry Spray. Ever since I did a sponsored post with Dove a few years back, I haven’t used ANY other deodorant. To be honest, deodorant freaks me out. I’ve always hated the way deodorant felt on my skin, so finding a dry spray that I absolutely loved was incredible.
Skim through the news.
I’m subscribed to two different newsletters to get my updates throughout the week: The Morning Brew (+ their new retail newsletter) and The Newsette. I used to subscribe to TheSkimm, but I just became over it. The Morning Brew is my favorite way to get caught up on business and tech news that I don’t necessarily seek out or understand fully. The Newsette is a fun-light hearted, easy to read, girly newsletter that I still learn a lot from!
Say “I love you” to my parents.
I have the luxury of living at home with my mom and dad. While this option might not suit everyone, it’s definitely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I absolutely love living at home right now. I’m also very close and affectionate with my parents, so I 100000% make sure I’m saying I love you whenever I leave the house to go to work. It’s just a thing we’ve always done. And will continue to do.
Now tell me a bit about your morning routine! What do you ALWAYS do before you leave the house?
