To Much Information: My Routine

  • Haircare/Hair Products

I get all kinds of feedback and questions  when it comes to adding an extra product to a daily routine.  Mostly I'm in shock at how many people do not wash their face at night!  I shared more about that in a different blog post.    But I wanted to cover my routine.  I've never timed either but I do know I can get out of bed & out the door doing ALLthe things in 30 minutes or less.  And I'm guessing my entire shower routine is under 20 minutes at least.

 

You may find this as to much information but honestly I kept some topics out of this blog so that I wasn't sharing totally to much information, lol!  I do shower in the evening so that's where we will start.

 

If I had eye makeup on I’d use the Facial Cleansing Oil or Hydrating Eye creme to remove it.  

 

1) Jump in the shower

2) Wet hair

3) Take approximately quarter size drop of Cherry Almond Prebiotic Body Wash & massage into scalp.  Including this graphic as there are days where I may need to do a double wash if my hair is extra greasier than normal.

4) 1 to 1 1/2 pumps of Prebiotic Facial Wash to massage into my face 

5) I’ll take my wash cloth to get extra scrubbing power & rinse of the facial wash 

6) Rinse my hair 

7) Put a few squirts of Prebiotic Body Wash the on my wash cloth.  I have a pump vs the flip top lid, it uses less products that way. Similar to how I mentioned pumps in step 4

8) Shave

     a) Shave the pits, 1-2 times a week I’ll take a small amount of body polish & massage into pits & rinse prior to shaving. 

     b) On days I shave my legs I use either a body polish pretreatment or just use the Prebiotic Body Wash as shave gel 

9) 1-3 times a week I exfoliate using either the Hydrating Facial Polish or Microdermabrasion Creme.  {You can learn more about our facial products in this blog post}

 

10) Getting out of the shower, I’ll wrap my towel around me as I do a few steps

 

11) Pat dry my face & apply desired serum either Vitamin C or Lightening

12) Clean out the ears as they serum absorbs in

13) Then apply facial moisturizer, depending on the season 

     a) Spring & Summer Overnight Rehab Creme

     b) Fall & Winter Hydrating Eye Creme. Yes you read that correctly. I love the hydration plus it keeps the wrinkles & frown lines at bay. 

14) Now I’m going to pat dry the rest of me. Pat drying keeps more of you natural oils on you vs wiping them all off

15) Then apply body moisturizer, depending on the season 

     a) Spring & Summer will either be Hand & Body lotion or Nourishing Body Oil. I do like using the Unscented lotion with Frankincense EO added....said to reduce cellulite plus has some other amazing benefits too! 

     b) Fall & Winter I’ll kick it up on the hydration levels with either a body icing or body butter 

 

16) So I shower at night, I apply a small amount of Healing Elements Balm to each pit. Then in the morning apply my deodorant paste.  

 

These extra steps of serum, exfoliating, etc can be added when you time it right without it taking extra time out of the day or your routine. 

 

Alright now let’s tackle the morning routine.  See if I can get this right, I try to stay consistent but you know there are those days!

 

1) Since I washed my face last night & my skin allows it, in the morning I’m spritzing Rose Water Facial Mist on a cotton swab & swiping across the face to get anything off & a refresher

2) Then apply facial moisturizer, depending on the season 

     a) Spring & Summer Overnight Rehab Creme

     b) Fall & Winter Hydrating Eye Creme. Yes you read that correctly. I love the hydration plus it keeps the wrinkles & frown lines at bay.  {I could apply a serum before this step if I’d like to}

3) At this point I want my moisturizer to absorb so I go heat up my water for my tea 

4) As I wait for that, I’m back in the bathroom to apply Mineral Primer. 

5) Back to the kitchen to allow my tea to steep

6) As I await my tea, I’m back in the bathroom to apply my Liquid Foundation. Have you seen my application trick?  Be sure to come back & read this makeup blog when you are done with this one!

7) Then sometimes I sneak to the kitchen to grab my tea.  Otherwise I’m applying concealer, this is typically to cover the dark under eyes using either the Pink Brightening or Medium Beige.  

8) This next step definitely doesn’t happen every day.  I will apply the Matte Veil, mainly on days I know I’ll be outside for a long time, will be taking pictures or videos.  

9) Then it’s time to do hair. 

10) Somewhere in all these steps I apply my deodorant paste.  A fine example as why I miss it some days since it doesn’t have its permanent step in the process. #Fail However, Healing Elements Balm can work just fine as deodorant when in a pinch!   If you haven't switched to natural deodorant then you want to check out this blog post!

 

 

Now which steps did I miss?
