This is a step by step routine which should take at least 20-30 minutes of your time, leaving you looking beautiful for school or work!
How to Have a Morning Beauty Routine
1. Get up early.
Stretch your arms, legs, neck and shoulders.
2. Get in the shower and wash yourself with a body gel (preferably scented)
Follow up with exfoliating and shaving if needed. Shave near the end of the shower, so that the hair has a chance to soften (it’ll help with the razor burn and the shave in general).
3. Wash your hair with a good shampoo, suited to your hair.
Try to use natural-based and sulfate-free products like Shea Moisture or OGX. Then use conditioner. Try to leave the conditioner in for 2 minutes.
4. Apply body lotion when you get out of the shower.
Also apply deodorant and give it time to dry before you get dressed. Don’t forget to also clean your ears.
5. Get a washcloth.
Pour HOT, not boiling, though, water on it, then press to your face. Then wash with an oil-free cleanser (Neutrogena; cheap and effective) then rinse with warm water. Then get 2 tablespoons of water and 2 tablespoons of sugar and mix. Then rub on face. NOW you can rinse with cold water.
6. Check your eyebrows.
If they have some hairs growing out of place, pluck them.
7. Get dressed.
Make sure your outfit is totally you and fashionable! (It would be easier if you lay out your clothes the night before.)
8. Apply makeup.
For teens, concealer to cover blemishes and under eye circles, tinted moisturizer with SPF or powder, curl lashes and apply a coat of clear or black mascara and a slick of lip gloss for a natural look. Don’t wear heavy foundation or too much eyeliner or eyeshadow and remember to keep your hair back with a rubber band while doing makeup.
9. Blow dry your hair, then style it.
Loose curls for long hair achieved with a good quality curler is suitable for school and also looks gorgeous. If you have a bad hair day, brush it into a ponytail and cover greasy roots with a headband.
10. Eat breakfast, brush your teeth well and floss.
If you are worried about bad breath, use mouthwash. Listerine pocket packs are great for on the go breath fresheners.
11. Spray a little bit of perfume or body spray.
Do not saturate yourself with it otherwise you’ll smell too strong.
