My daily beauty routine is the same every day

I have decided to start this topic because a few friends ask me about it. I figured I would start this article. Maybe it can help you start your routine.

Cleaning the House

Since I stay home 95 percent of my day because I work from home and I rarely leave the house for any reason besides grocery shopping, I stay very mobile indoors. The first thing that I do the minute I wake up is clean up the house.

Not only is this a good substitute for working out since I do a lot of lifting, bending, reaching, and stretching — it helps me sweat out before a shower.

It is also a good way to provide natural moisturizer and cool down your body. Sweating also helps with anti-aging effects and kills harmful bacteria on your skin’s surface. Sweating also shows that you’ve worked your body out and you’d be surprised how your skin glows after a good sweat session.


Morning Hot Shower

There are many articles about taking a cold shower in the morning to feel refreshed. I cannot take a cold shower in the morning. I usually take a hot, steaming shower regardless of the weather outside.

Studies show that a steam or hot bath opens your pores, and it cleans out toxin buildup in your body. I can tell you that I always feel fresher after a hot shower.

Once after a shower, I hang around to cool off before starting my skincare routine.


Facial and Body Product

My best friend has introduced me to Aquaphor, and I have been using it as a body moisturizer. It has helped seal in moisturizer better than any lotions that I have been using. Especially in the winter months.

I have listed the products down below for you to check out. These are the only products that I use and it has been a lifesaver.

  1. Aquaphor
  2. Neutrogena Invigorating Foaming Face Wash
  3. Sky Tea Tree Witch Hazel Toner

Beauty Subscription Boxes

If you are unsure of what type of products are out there, check out these beauty boxes that I have been a member of and love! Not only do you get monthly shipments that are curated based on your interest and skin type, but you can also sample them and see what works for you.

The boxes are valued at a price that is unbeatable for the price you pay monthly.


In Conclusion

Hopefully, my routine helped inspire a new routine or add to your regular one. I normally do not wear make-up, which is why I do not use a lot of skincare products. When I do, I stick to what works.

Do not let anyone tell you that working out without being at a gym does not mean you are working out. When you move around and stay mobile indoors doing strenuous activities, it is a workout. Those activities also naturally help your skin, and you’ll be burning fats along with it.

I choose to do the cleaning in the morning because it helps kick start my day and I feel like I get more energy after a good clean. Plus, it keeps my home tidy, and as someone who works from home, having a neat home to look at helps relieve stress.
