Quick and simple morning skincare routine


Good morning,
today I thought I would share my morning skincare routine as I have been getting really into recently, that being said, I cannot for the life of me bring myself to wash my face before I go to work, so this tends to just happen at the weekend and during half terms. 

To start I like to use my new Garnier Wash Scrub and Mask which is specifically designed for blackheads and targeting spots. I like to wash my face with it first, dry my face, then apply it as a mask and leave it on until it dries.

As my skin has been fairly bad recently I have been using the Tea Tree toner from The Body Shop as this is antibacterial and I feel like this is helping to calm my skin. 

I then spritz my face with the Arkana Day Detox spray, this has loads of really good properties to help protect your skin throughout the day.

Finally I use the Arkana Hydrospheric Light Cream as my day moisturiser, this is really thick, creamy and hydrating so it makes it perfect to keep your make up looking pristine. 

What’s your morning skin routine like?

Lazy Day Morning Routine


Here is a lazy day get ready with me which is kind of like a morning routine. 

The first thing I do when I wake up is head to the bathroom with my cute little Zoella cup and full it up with water. Over the past few weeks I have been trying to drink a whole cup before I have any breakfast to keep me extra hydrated to see if it helps my skin. 

As today was a miserable day I decided to light a little Primark candle, these are my favourites as there only £1 yet really cute! And I can actually smell it burning away from my bed. 

On days when I’m doing nothing or have a long time to get ready I like to do a quick skincare routine to refresh my skin. 

I have been using the Garnier Rose Water Cleanser to just remove any dirt built up over the night followed by the Boots Botanics All Bright Toner to brighten my skin. 

And then to finish I go in with a brightening serum followed by the Clinique Moisturising Gel to hydrate and get my skin ready for the day. 

Now onto the important bit, breakfast! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day as I love a big bowl of rice crispies. I also love a coffee in the morning, normally in the summer I would turn it into an ice coffee but as it’s not a very nice day it’s just a hot latte. I eat my breakfast whilst watching YouTube catching up on my subscriptions. And gradually drink my coffee while I’m getting ready wsnits way to hot to drink it straight away.

And now, make up time! As I am actually not going anywhere I wanted to test out products which I don’t usually reach for to see if they work for my skin.

Before I get dressed I like to do the last minute bits, for my hair I like to douse it in dry shampoo. My favourite dry shampoo is from the fresh one from Co Lab, this is also great because if your in a rush you don’t need to worry about the white marks left in your hair, because there isn’t! I then slather on some body lotion to try and maintain the the little tan I do have and then spritz my body in a perfume.

Summer Morning Routine 


Waking Up In the summer I am way more motivated to get up and out of bed as I want to catch some rays in the garden. On this day I had set my alarm for half 9 but woke naturally at 9, I always find thy if I wake up naturally I am lesstired than if I have a alarm going off in my ear. So ofcourse it’s a little to early to go and sit in the garden so I still like to lounge around in bed for a while to enjoy my summers morning. Also now that it’s the summer holidays one of my jobs has now ended till September so I am only work in the late afternoon/evening which is perfect! 

Social Media 

While I am lying in bed the first thing I do is pull my blind up a bit so add some extra light into my room so it stops me from going back to sleep. Next I grab my phone and IPad. My first social media stop is Instagram (@juliettetalks) to catch up on everything I’ve missed while I was asleep. I then check on snapchat and then my watsapp messages from my friends and work. Once I have done this I started watching my YouTube subscriptions so I can catch up on them. By this time I’m getting a little hungry so I make myself a big glass of water to hydrate myself. 


Once I have finsihed up with YouTube I then venture downstairs and make my breakfast. My breakfast changes all the time, depending on what I am doing that day depends on what I have. So today I just had some jam toast as I didn’t need a big breakfast as I would be having lunch before I went to work. After I have had my breakfast I go back upstairs and make my bed. 

Getting Ready 

Getting ready in the mornings now is super easy as it requires no make up as I am not going anywhere. I put on a playsuit so I can go and sit in the sun. I then apply my face sunscreen and let that sit for about half an hour before I actually go outside. I then collect up everything I need to sit in the garden and keep myself entertained. This means sunglasses, lip balm, a bottle, sunscreen, magazine and my notebook to plan some blogposts. 

Catching some rays 

Finally it is about 11am and the sun is just getting warm and is right over my garden so I can enjoy the rest of my relaxing morning.
