My Morning Glow Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,
Welcome to the new and revived Trendy & Bendy blog. Here I will be sharing all my tips and tricks to help you maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle.
I am starting off this blog with my No Make Up/Natural Glow Skin morning routine. I do these steps every morning to create a healthy natural appearance to my skin that will make you feel and look good.
Lots of love, Jane x

Step 1: Lemon & Warm Water

When I wake up every morning, the first thing I do is make myself a glass of warm water and lemon. This helps to flush toxins out of your body and makes sure your digestive system functions smoothly. It also can curb your hunger for the day, preventing over snacking.

There are endless benefits to drinking it, including helping to maintain the PH levels of the body, fighting infections due to its anti-inflammatory properties and increases the metabolic rate. Drinking lemon water purifies the skin and unclogs pores, preventing acne and brightening the skin. It also encourages the production of collagen!


Step 2: Facial Roller 

A cold facial roller is like yoga for the face and have many skincare benefits! I use a rose quartz facial roller in the morning and a gua sha in the evening. I keep mine in the fridge as the coolness helps to depuff your skin and tighten pores.

You can use your facial roller on its own or use it to apply your favourite creams and moisturisers. Start in the centre of your face and roll outwards to lift the skin. Consistent use of a facial roller can improve the skin’s elasticity and improves blood circulation. The gua sha can naturally contour your face and relieve tension by moving it in an upwards motion encouraging blood flow around the cheek and jaw area. I use the gua sha in the evening as it can occasionally cause redness!


Step 3: Skin Formulas Vitamin C Serum

After cleansing I use the Vitamin C Serum from Skin Formulas. They are an amazing Irish skincare brand, I have purchased multiple products from them and my skin is glowing!

Using vitamin C helps to brighten the skin, creating a natural youthful appearance to the skin. It also helps to prevent signs of ageing and fades hyper-pigmentation such as sun and age spots. I use one pump of this serum and massage it into my face and neck. This serum is available to purchase here.


Step 4: Face Tanning Mist by Bare By Vogue

I have been using the Bare By Vogue tan for years so I was thrilled when I heard they were coming out with a face tan! I use the face tanning mist in the shade medium twice a week to create a naturally sunkissed glow. It is a lightweight formula that develops in 4-8 hours. The product contains extracts of oatmeal and chamomile and powerful antioxidants which protect the skin from pollutants. It is quick and easy to apply and saves the hassle of applying makeup!
