Early Morning Routine (Featuring Origins)

August 18, 2017

My Early Mornings

I teach barre workout classes, which are a fun combination between ballet warmups, pilates, and light cardio. While I love, love, love what I do, I have to wake up super early in order to get to work on time. And when I say early, I mean EARLY. I’m up 3 times a week between 4/4:30am so I can open the studio by 5:30am!

My Routine

When I wake up every morning, I always like to get dressed first and then head into the bathroom to get ready. I wash and moisturize my face and brush my teeth. After that I head into the kitchen to make breakfast (usually toast or fruit) and pack lunch. My go-to lunch is grab-and-go snacks that I can eat throughout the day. I love bars, fruit, plantain chips, and cheese! And of course, coffee. Once I’ve eaten and packed everything I need, I’m out the door.

What Makes My Mornings Easier?

I’m part of a group called Influenster, which supports social media influencers and connects them with new products to test and review. I was recently sent three products from Origins new GinZing line! I was sent the Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer, Refreshing Eye Cream, and Refreshing Scrub Cleanser. I’ve been using all three products for about a month now and I have to say that I’ve noticed a visible and physical difference.

The Scrub Cleanser smells like grapefruit and citrus, which works great for waking you up! It also has a cooling sensation as you scrub it onto your face, which I’m always a fan of! The Eye Cream does actually work to get rid of dark circles, and I’m obsessed. But it should be mentioned that my sister started using it as well and felt that it was too oily. The Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer is the only thing I’m still on the fence about. While I love the smell, I was initially not a fan of how sticky my face felt when I first put it on. I’ve gotten past that, but since I’m someone with super dry skin, I feel that it’s not the best for me. Still, I’ve enjoyed trying all three!
