How To Speed Up Your Morning Routine
Getting ready in the morning can be a really stressful experience. Trying to look put together when on a huge time crunch is no mean feat. Luckily, there are items that can really help you out. These are products that can serve more than one purpose, standing in for more than one step in a morning routine.
A Treatment Cleanser
Washing your face in the morning can seem like a waste of valuable time – but if you go for a cleanser with added skincare benefits, you’ll get ore than just a clean canvas. If you’re dry go for CeraVe’s Hydrating Cleanser, which leaves skin smooth and soft, and if you’re oily something like Mario Badescu’s Glycolic Cleanser gently exfoliates, making you look super fresh faced.
An SPF Moisturiser
Applying sunscreen is one of the most important things you can do for skin health, but adding it in as another step can make it really tempting to skip. Go for a moisturiser with SPF to ensure you’re always protected – a great option is the Olay Regenerist Day Cream with SPF 30.
A BB Cream
To cut out even more steps, you can go for a BB cream. These are designed to be a moisturiser, SPF and light coverage base in one. One of the best is Dr. Jart’s Premium BB Cream, which offers light hydration, SPF 45 and a glowy, medium coverage.
A Blush And Lipstick In One
The addition of colour products into a morning routine can seem daunting – so why not start with just one? By using a lip and cheek product, you’ll ensure your makeup looks cohesive, and a flush of colour always makes you look healthy and more awake. The RMS Lip2Cheeks are fantastic options, and they come in lots of flattering shades.
A Setting Spray Plus Hydrator
If you finish your makeup and find everything looks too “done,” a facial mist can really help melt products into the skin and remove any powdery finishes. Getting one with hydrating skincare benefits will ensure your complexion looks fresh all day long. The Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz is a great bargainous choice. As a bonus, it can be tossed in your bag to refresh makeup throughout the day.
A Dry Shampoo And Texturiser
Skipping a hair wash can be a necessity on rushed mornings. But that shouldn’t mean your hair is a lost cause. Dry shampoo is a godsend for sucking up grease and making hair look fresher. One with adding volume boosting benefits can give flat hair some volume and hold – the Batiste Heavenly Volume Dry Shampoo makes third day hair look like second day.
