Like many people I'm not the most spritly person in the morning ( in fact I'm terrible! Don't even think about talking to me until I've had at least one cup of coffee!) .
I have adapted my skincare routine around this, using products that are quick and effective. I haven't got hours to spend cleansing my face or to apply numerous lotions and potions, so I use the products that work and cut out any that I feel don't benefit my skin.
First up is Cleansing and "Toning". I use the word toning loosely as its not the same as it was years ago. Toners are there now not just to remove the residue of your cleanser but to exfoliate, soothe and restore the natural pH balance of your skin.
Lastly I apply an eye cream, another Origins product, GinZing eye cream. This, like the moisturiser contains the same active ingredients caffeine and ginseng to help de-puff and awaken the under eye area. The cream is light and has a pinky iridescent sheen to it which is meant to brighten and highlight the under eye area. It sinks in quickly and works well under my Bobbi Brown Corrector.
I have found I can apply and do all these steps in under 5 minutes, leaving my skin feeling fresh, clean and ready for my make up, or for applying my "slap" (as my husband likes to call it!) These and my coffee leave me feeling a bit more lively and ready to face the day.... well almost anyway!
