easy morning routine

You know how in the movies everyone gets to have a leisurely morning?? Mom makes a full continental breakfast, Dad reads the newspaper (and obviously I have comments about this sexist portrayal but I digress), and the kids come running down the stairs and eat one bite of toast before heading to school on their own. On their OWN?! Like no one had to dress them or drive them to school. Oh, and it’s sunny outside so I have to assume they aren’t waking up at 5:30 to get all of this done!

Alas, I don’t know anyone whose morning actually looks like that, BUT I do try to prioritize certain things in the morning. For me it’s coffee (above all else!!), food, and skincare – I know you’re shocked. So even if I only have 15 minutes to get ready, I’m drinking coffee, eating something, and washing my face all at the same time. 🤣

Here are my favorite morning products:

Cleanse

Tone

Treat

Protect

And that’s it! 4 steps may seem like a lot but it takes less than 3 minutes.

What’s an essential part of your morning routine?!
