Day 96 - Clean Beauty.
Day 96 - Hey Gorgeous. Good morning. Oh, it's so hard to get out of bed sometimes. We pull the covers over a head and hope the alarm clock will magically disappear. We all need that good old beauty sleep. Is there anyone reading this who wakes up at 4:30 a.m. in the morning, pops out of bed and gives the day a big old bear hug? If so, please know we can never be friends.
I am not a morning person. Let me be clear, I don't hate the morning. The smell of coffee brewing, the hope for a day yet to come and the promise of any kind of fried pastry makes me giddy. It's being yanked out of bed and the reality of all the tasks that need to be accomplished that makes me hit the snooze button. However there is one thing that gets me out of bed besides a glazed donut, a routine. Specifically, having a beauty routine in place that makes the process of getting out the door faster.
While we are chatting about beauty routines and spring cleaning this week, let's talk about clean beauty. Specifically, cleaning the skin on our face. Turns out most of us are doing it wrong, including me. I Googled it and I clearly should have Googled "How to Correctly Wash Your Face" years ago. A big thank you to InStyle magazine for providing "The 5 Steps To Correctly Wash Your Face" .
This brings me to todays project. Create a cleansing morning routine for your face. All this might sound ridiculous, vain or unnecessary but our skin is our largest organ and is the first line of defense against infection. Having a routine in place will make our skin fresh, clean and ready to do it's job. Plus, it might make it easier to get out of the bed in the morning.
Well, I have to get down some scrubbing, toning and moisturizing. Later gorgeous!
