The Right Way to Wake Up Skin

24th May 2017

 

If you’ve ever been woken up abruptly, you’ll know how crabby it makes you for the rest of the day. Skin is no different. Wake it up on the wrong side of the bed, and it’ll be sluggish and grumpy all day. A gentle and energizing morning skincare regime is all skin needs to set it up the right way so the challenges it faces in the day ahead don’t seem half so bad.

 

Cleansing

Your skin works overtime at night to repair and restore the damage it faced during the day. This means it pushes toxins to the surface so it’s super important to remove these as soon as you wake up. Sadly, a splash of water in the shower won’t do it, but to save time, take the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm in the shower with you and rinse with the cloth. It’s actually easier to use in the shower than it is in the sink.

 

Massage

Wouldn’t we all like wake up to an energizing massage? Your skin sure does. You can do this while you cleanse as the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is packed with essential oils so it has a great slip to massage with. Start in pulsating upward motions from the jawline to your hair line and gradually work your way up your face to wake up muscles. Finish by using your ring finger (it has the lightest touch) to tap repeatedly along your eye socket bone, circulating the eye. This helps to stimulate lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness.

 

Moisturize

Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is designed for the busy woman. Apply in the morning and you get twelve solid hours of hydration. It creates an invisible shield over skin to not only keep moisture in, but toxins out. Plus, it doesn’t feel weighty so it sits well under make-up (no foundation landslide half way through the day).
