as a creature of habit, i’m all about consistency, especially when it comes to my routine. in my opinion, the way you start your day sets the tone for how the rest of it will go. here’s the full breakdown of my routine before noon…

first thing in the AM
    • take collagen supplements on an empty stomach
    • make warm lemon + honey water to boost my metabolism
smoothie

 i make this smoothie every morning. It gives me life and so much energy

    • half almond milk/half coconut water
    • handful of spinach
    • 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
    • 2 chunks of cucumber
    • 1 banana (i break them into pieces and freeze them)
    • 2 pitted dates
    • 1 tsp spirulina powder

 

skin
    • cleanse – using my regular face wash (i only double-cleanse at night when i’m wearing makeup)
    • tone- i always tone with teddie’s organic rose water. it’s a natural astringent that helps balance your skin’s pH, remove excess oil, tighten pores, and reduce redness & irritation due to its anti-inflammatory properties
    • antioxidant serum- while my skin is still damp, i apply skinceuticals CE ferulic, giving it 30-60 sec to absorb before moving on
    • hyaluronic acid- the #1 ingredient to look for when it comes to hydrating the skin. i layer this on top of the CE ferulic
    • moisturize- i finish my routine by sealing everything in with dr. dennis gross C + collagen deep cream

 

 

makeup
  • IT cosmetics CC cream- i like to wear minimal makeup during the day and this cc cream provides the perfect amount of coverage. it’s also a broad spectrum SPF, which i never leave home without. applied with a dampened beauty blender
  • RMS concealer- also applied with bb to imperfections & under eyes
  • anastasia beverly hills brow pencil- i use this to fill in any gaps and then brush it out with a spoole for a softer look
  • benefit tinted lash primer- it comes in the perfect shade ‘mink brown,’ which we consider to be more natural and less harsh than black. i wear it day & night on its own
  • jack black intense lip balm SPF 25- hands down my favorite lip balm. i take it with me wherever i go
  • tatcha dewy setting spray- for a dewy, glowing finish
