Quick 'n Easy Morning Beauty

Quick 'n Easy Morning Beauty

I am fond of a good morning routine, it helps me feel grounded and ready to greet the day. When my alarm goes off I try to avoid hitting the snooze button, and instead sit up in bed for about 5 minutes of deep breathing, intention setting, and morning meditation.

Then it's time for dry brushing, a deep cleanse, and a facial oil massage.  I am loving Alitura at the moment, for facial oil, and Po Derma for cleansing.  My dry brush is from Province Apothecary who also post how-to's for dry brushing and facial massage on their site which I find very helpful!  I'm using Love Beauty & Planet's daily detox body wash in the shower which smells SO good and comes in 100% recycled and recyclable packaging.

I'm obsessed with sunscreen, and I like products that are quick and easy to use.  Coola's spray sunscreen is top of my list as well as Sun Bum lotion.  For my face I like to use a multi purpose product like Hynt Beauty's primer, or Consonant Skincare's tinted sunscreen.  I also just discovered Reversa sunscreen which protects against UV rays and environmental pollution.

Rms buriti bronzer is so pretty on lids and cheeks and easy to apply with your finger tip.  Nude by Nature's pressed powder blush is gorgeous, and I like to blend the two with Rituel de Fille's luminizer.  Po Derma's lip balm or Consonant Life's lip conditioner (or a mix of the two) on lips and either Dalish concealer or Zorah corrective concealer under my eyes and maybe around my nose, and that's about it for me for a day of writing, yoga-ing, and errands, and feeling refreshed and glow-y!
