5 Easy Skincare Tips to Fit Into Your Morning Routine

We're all busy.  As I wrote last week, I rarely schedule time to take care of myself.  I don't know about you, but this girl doesn't always have times for elaborate skincare treatments and spa days (though I certainly wouldn't say no to one!).

When it comes to skincare, I need easy, quick things that I can incorporate into what I'm already doing.  As a girl who washes my face while I'm in the shower and does my makeup on the way to work, I like when I get the opportunity to do a mask or something extra for my skin, but I can't always afford tons of extra time.

I've found that the easiest way to give my skin a little extra pampering is to work things into my morning routine, so here are five things that you can add to your morning routine to give your skin little pampering!

If you haven't discovered the many wonders of coconut oil yet, then stop what you're doing and go get some asap.  Coconut oil is great for moisturizing and softening your hair, among other things, and I love rubbing some into my hair about 10 minutes before I hop in the shower!

For a tasty and natural way to whiten teeth, mash up some strawberries and mix it with baking soda.  Smear the mixture on your teeth for a little whitening boost!  This is another great thing to do before you hop in the shower!

Exfoliating is so important for keeping your skin healthy!  A mixture of brown sugar and lemon is one of my favorite exfoliators, and I love rubbing that mixture into places where dry skin surfaces, like elbows, hands, and feet!

I don't always like putting lotion on my body in the warm summer months, but it's so important!  Moisturizing is key to healthy, happy skin, so make sure you work this into your morning routine.

5.  MASK IT! // 
One of my favorite ways to pamper myself a little bit is with a mask, and one of my favorite masks is the Bioré® Self Heating One Minute Mask.  The fact that "one minute" is in the product's name should tell you a lot...it feels awesome on your skin and does what it says in just one minute and heats on contact, so it's a cinch to work into your routine!  It is made with natural charcoal, which is a great ingredient for drawing out impurities that are trapped deep-down in your skin.  I love how it opens your pores and removes pore-clogging dirt and oil!

You can find the Bioré® Self Heating One Minute Mask, as well as other Bioré® products, like the Bioré® Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser and the Bioré® Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strip (another one of my faves!) at Target!  And until June 20th, you can get a $5 Target gift card with the purchase of three Bioré® products with Cartwheel.

  1. Oh my gosh I love the pictures in this post!! Great job, as always!! I haven't tried mine yet, but will soon! I'm glad you liked the mask!

  2. I love masks! I need to try that strawberry trick for my teeth!

  3. you're so cute! i've never heard of the strawberry thing, but i am always trying to get my teeth whiter so i'm definitely going to try it. and do you have any good moisturizer suggestions?

  4. Never heard of that strawberry and baking soda hack to whiten your teeth, but so smart! And coconut oil is amazing. Love the masks, too!

  5. Well for summer, I love Hawaiin Tropic's After-Sun Moisturizer! It's got aloe and other stuff to help preserve a tan and it smells like a pina colada!

    I really want to try those biore masks!

  7. Great tips! I love to talk about the uses of coconut oil! My favorite hair mask is with it and I like to sleep in it and then rinse out in the shower.

  8. Loooove coconut oil! It's absolutely amazing. I've been meaning to try pulling with it for awhile but I don't know if I can keep anything swishing around in my mouth for ten minutes! Have you tried that?? The one minute mask would be perfect for me! I haaaate having to sit around with gunk on my face for 15 minutes before I can do anything!

  9. I haven't tried these products in while, but I remember them working so well! In college I went kind of crazy with face cleansing products, so I tried out a bunch. I've heard really great things about charcoal cleansers, so I want to give that one a try!

    PS, thinking of you and your church family! xo

  10. I love ALL of their charcoal products...such a fun way to clean your skin! :) #client

  12. Ashley Bree PerezJune 14, 2015 at 1:31 PM

    I need to buy that mask! I meant to buy it this weekend.

  13. Great tips! I didn't know the strawberry one!

  14. Ashley Bree PerezJune 15, 2015 at 12:50 PM

    love it all! :D

  15. It's definitely one of the best masks I've ever tried!

  16. Yes! Who would have guessed that charcoal is such a miracle worker?!

  17. Haha I have done the same thing! I love trying new products!
    (And thanks so much!)

  18. I haven't tried pulling! I would love to, but I'm like you...I don't know if I can handle that for 10 minutes, and I actually don't love the taste of coconut! haha

  19. Yes! It's a miracle worker for hair!

  20. The strawberry thing tastes good! haha...I always rub strawberries on my teeth when I bit into them! haha

  21. haha thanks Hayley!! It's probably one of the best masks I've ever tried!

  22. I need to try coconut oil in my hair still! I love that Biore mask also, if feels amazing!

  23. I have been wanting to do more to ensure happy and healthy skin. I have heard a lot about using masks to exfoliate your skin, however, I haven't been able to find a useful product to use. I appreciate your suggestion to use Biore because it seems like it is a quality mask that doesn't take too much time to apply and use. Do you have any other tips on how to specifically moisturize and make your face brighter and looking healthy? http://www.thedepiericlinic.com/services/ipl.php
