6 simple ways to recharge your morning routine

Get back into a great “get ready” routine with these mood-boosting, skincare-meets-self-care tips.

Now that life is getting back to normal, it’s the perfect time to kickstart your morning grooming routine. Taking a little extra time for yourself can help energize your mind and body for the day and encourage a greater sense of well-being. Read on for six simple ways to refresh your “getting ready” rituals and help you conquer the day ahead.

Begin with a gentle cleanse
Start your day with a fresh canvas by opting for a cleanser that locks in hydration and leaves your skin petal soft. Unlike many foaming cleansers, NEUTROGENA® Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser Foaming Formula has a non-stripping formula that dissolves excess oil and residue without disrupting the skin’s natural moisture barrier or causing irritation, so you can put your best face forward every morning.

Try a soothing shampoo
Give your hair and scalp the same TLC as your face with a nourishing shampoo, like Aveeno® Rose Water & Chamomile Blend Sensitive & Soft Shampoo. Featuring soothing oats along with anti-inflammatory chamomile and calming rosewater extracts, this pick free of sulfates, dyes and parabens is perfect for sensitive scalps.

Soften dry skin
There’s nothing like super-smooth limbs to make you feel like the best version of yourself. Slather yourself in Vaseline® Intensive Care® Cocoa Radiant Lotion to deeply moisturize every inch of your body. This rich lotion stars glycerin to draw moisture into the skin, while microdroplets of Vaseline® Jelly create an occlusive barrier to seal in all of the hydrating goodness.

Get your complexion glowing
Want more even-toned, radiant skin in fewer steps? No sweat. Garnier Green Labs® Brightening Serum Cream Pinea-C is a serum, lotion and sunscreen in one. The multi-tasking hybrid includes brightening vitamin C and pineapple fruit extracts, as well as SPF 30 for UV protection. The velvety formula sinks in fast and leaves a luminous finish.

Bring on the bounce
Now that your face is prepped, add an extra dose of hydration with a moisturizer that works overtime, like Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide24 Moisturizer. Not only does this collagen peptide-infused formula promise to deliver visibly firmer, more supple-looking skin in two weeks flat, the featherlight cream leaves skin incredibly soft from morning to night without feeling sticky or heavy. Plus, it’s proven to hydrate better than a $400 cream. Talk about luxury.

Double up on sun protection
Round out your routine with a multi-benefit coverage cream that fends off fine lines and sun damage. Marcelle CC Cream SPF35 CDA is an elasticity-boosting, colour-correcting cream loaded with plenty of skincare benefits, including SPF 35. Infused with 24K gold light-reflecting pigments to take your glow to new heights, this gem offers natural-looking coverage without any fragrance, oils or allergenic ingredients.
