Not only will you always look great without fail, but you’ll also boost the health of your skin and hair. Just follow these simple morning routine tips!
Volumize your hair
Everyone wants voluminous hair and there are many ways you can achieve this. For example, simply apply dry shampoo to your hair before you go to sleep at night. When you wake up in the morning, you’ll be greeted by a full-bodied hair. You can also use pillow rollers overnight for bouncy texture. They’re designed to be comfortable to sleep in. Alternatively, if you’re a fan of the fashionably messy hair, spray a light mousse into your hair in the morning. Put it up in a bun and blow dry it. Then just simply leave your hair to cool while you continue your routine. When you let your hair down, it’ll have tons of texture.
Blow dry your hair
Blow drying your hair in the morning dries it fast and provides ample volume and shine. When blow drying your hair, it’s important to evenly distribute the heat. Dry from the roots to the tips and tackle larger sections of hair at a time. Also, consider investing in a professional hair dryer. Cheaper hair dryers do the job, but you’ll notice a real difference if you switch to a professional one. Read this handy guide to find out if it’s worth it. With a professional dryer, you’ll be able to better create voluminous and shiny hair.
Cleanse your face
Every morning, cleanse your face with a non-oily cleanser in order to wash away any dirt and bacteria lingering on the skin. It’s best to choose a gentle cleanser with a low-pH — especially if you have sensitive skin. Using something too harsh could irritate and upset your skin. Massage the cleanser onto your face in small, circular motions before rinsing it off with fresh water. Then simply dry your face by patting it gently with a clean towel.
Follow-up with a toner
It’s essential to always follow up cleansing with toning. Using a toner will balance the pH level of your skin and minimize the appearance of pores. Simply put some toner onto a cotton ball and sweep it gently over your face. Make sure you cover the skin evenly and allow the toner to be fully absorbed. After using a toner, your skill will feel fresh and hydrated. It also inhibits the production of excess oil and helps create a protective barrier separating your skin from the outside elements.
Use a moisturizer
Moisturizing your skin keeps it nice and hydrated throughout the day. You’ll need to choose a moisturizer that matches your skin type, so it helps your skin look and feels good throughout the day. If your skin is dry, choose a rich and creamy moisturizer that provides plenty of hydration. Alternatively, if your skin is oily or acne-prone, it’s essential you use an oil-free moisturizer to hydrate the skin and keep oil production at bay. Take some moisturizer and smooth it onto your face and neck. Keep massaging the moisturizer into your skin until it’s fully absorbed.
Always apply primer to your face before you put on your makeup. The job of a primer is to soften and smooth out the skin in order to create the perfect base for your foundation. Primers can even minimize fine lines and pores, so it’s a must-use product if you struggle with these types of imperfections. All you need to do is smooth a pea-sized amount over primer gently and evenly over your face. Wearing primer underneath your makeup not only keeps your skin looking great, but it also helps your foundation stay in place for longer.
Following these simple steps will keep both your skin and hair looking and feeling great all day long. Get into the habit of using this routine every day and you’ll see a noticeable improvement in the condition of your skin and hair.
