The First Thing You Should Do When You Wake Up

By October 7, 2018Skin Care Tips

How many times have you done this…?  

Your alarm goes off. Ohhhh, not another Monday! So, you hit the snooze button…

All you want to do is that extra five minutes but you end up dozing for 15. You wake up, frantic, trying to go as fast as you can to make up for lost time. You splash water on your face to wake up, but skip the day cream. ‘There’s no time for the luxury of a day cream when I’m late for work…’

But, the thing is, even on those craziest days, it’s important to start your morning right with a day cream. Actually, on those manic mornings, it’s even more essential to prime your skin for less stress, by using a day cream.

We’re human… and creatures of habit. There are a few things you do every morning that helps set the tone for the rest of the day. And spending 30 seconds applying your day cream should be one of them.

So, your routine could look something like this:

  • Set a second alarm on your phone (before you go to bed) to catch you if you doze off again
  • Rise and shine, pretty, and make the bed
  • Drink a glass of water
  • Wash your face, apply day cream, and eye serum
  • Get changed and make breakfast.

This routine can work for any work schedule and takes all of five minutes to do. The important thing is not to skip the day cream. It’s going to empower your skin for the rest of the morning (and afternoon).

The importance of a day cream.

See how we keep saying day cream, and not moisturiser?

We’re doing this intentionally. So many people just use one moisturiser, but your skin has different needs in the morning and night. This is why you need to start your morning with a protective, yet lightweight day cream – followed by a thicker, restorative night cream before bed. Both the day cream and night version complement each other.

You’re going to rise with an energised, fresh-looking complexion, which will make your day cream work better. While still addressing issues with your skin, a day cream is designed for long-lasting hydration. And by using a day cream like ours, it works (while you do) to boost the cell renewal process to reveal younger-looking skin.

Our day cream (and night version) is called Age IQ. It mimics the skin’s natural age-fighting properties, reducing the signs of fine lines, wrinkles, discolouration, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores and sagging skin.

With ingredients like vitamin C and E, CoQ10, centella asiatica, peptide blend and aloe leaf water, you’re going to look forward to waking up and treating your skin.
