We’re already into the second month of the new year and I’m so happy with how consistent I’ve been with my morning routine. With anything in life, being disciplined and dedicated are the keys to success. No matter how lazy or tired I am, I make sure to complete my routine before I can start my day.
I always begin by stretching for 30 seconds. You’re in bed for so many hours, it’s good for the body to warm up and stretch. Afterwards I make my bed. This is very important. If all else fails, make sure you never leave your house without your bed being made. It sounds silly but it really does set the tone for the day.
I’ve been trying to meditate daily but some days are harder than others. Keeping your mind still is not easy but practice makes perfect and I believe that more I meditate, the more I’ll be able to control my negative thoughts throughout the day.
I then make myself some warm lemon water and journal. I’ve been journaling for the past four years and it has honestly been a game changer. Starting your day with gratitude makes me feel at peace and like I can take on anything the day throws at me.
Something that is also very high on my list is skincare. Having healthy skin not only makes you look good but also makes you feel good. Confident and beautiful. Using quality products is also a must.
One of the brands I trust and use is Bioré.
My main skin issues are breakouts and large pores. And who knows more about pores than Bioré?
Everything they do revolves around deep cleaning all 20,000 pores because they know that clear skin starts with clean pores.
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been using their Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Toner and Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips.
Their toner has one of the best formulas out there. Formulated to help treat and prevent blemishes, this astringent will keep your face smooth and clear. Salicylic acid penetrates pores to help treat blemishes and reduce breakouts and Witch Hazel is a natural ingredient known for pore and complexion benefits: Tighten pores, naturally purify, fortify skin barrier, refresh and heal.
What is hiding in your pores can be downright scary and these extra-strength pore strips are work like a super-magnet and lift out even the most stubborn blackheads and deep down dirt & oil that can lead to complexion problems.
After using Bioré I can confidently put on my makeup and start my day!
