Now that the cold weather is here (especially in Upstate New York!), we really enjoy relaxing weekend mornings! This is Abby's relaxing weekend morning routine during the Fall and Winter!
I really like to start my morning by laying in bed and listening to podcasts. Recently, I have been listening to either Stuff Your Mom Never Told You. This is a free podcast by two fabulous women! It is uplifting, encouraging, and educational.
Once I am ready to get out of bed, I will move on to washing my face. On the weekends in particular I try to avoid being super lazy with this step! I have combo/oily skin and I have really been loving this combination of products!
I also tend to go without makeup to give my skin a break.
I start by using the First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser with Red Clay. This leaves my skin feeling very clean, but not extremely dry or tight.
Next, I will use the Purity microdelivery exfoliating wash. This product has very small micro exfoliating beads that provide a deep clean without completely stripping the skin. I like to use this 2-3 times a week, although it states it is safe to use daily.
Third, I will use the Dickinson's Witch Hazel as a refreshing toner, again this is not overly drying.
Next, I will use the First Aid Beauty Oily Free Mattifying Gel- another great product for my combo/oily skin beauties! This leaves my face feeling hydrated, but not like an oil slick. It really preps my skin for makeup!
Finally, I will put on the Garnier Ultra Lift Eye cream, this is a great affordable eye cream that hydrates and de-puffs my eyes!
After my skin care is complete, I like to make myself a full breakfast or brunch...depending on when I wake up! This particular morning was extremely healthy, but it was delicious!
My fiancee and I made 2 eggs over easy and some bacon. I also had a piece of Rudi's Gluten Free bread with butter. This meal kept me full most of the day!
But..this would not be complete without a cup of coffee! I decided to treat myself and I made a Peppermint Mocha Latte!
This combination makes it easy to make a delicious latte without leaving your house! I found my box at Target!
This provided me with a sweet boost of energy in the morning.
I think my mug says it all! On the weekends I try to treat myself, I make sure to focus on my self-care. I do this by relaxing, taking some time for me, taking good care of my skin, enjoying a nice breakfast, and a delicious latte.
I really enjoy slow and relaxing mornings during the colder months if I am able to take the time!
We would love to hear what you do on a cold weekend morning! Leave your comment below!
