A fun morning routine is the key to a bright day ahead, and there is nothing worse than feeling tired when you wake up after a night of sleep!

There might be many reasons behind looking tired in the morning, such as working late or uncomfortable sleeping conditions… Yet, it doesn’t mean that you have to carry out this feeling all day long.

I used to think that I must have an extensive, complex morning routine to make sure I look and feel my best.

Turns out, it’s quite the opposite, and less can definitely be more when it comes to a good morning routine.

Today I want to share my girly morning routine that will reduce any signs of tiredness and help you to look rested, glowing, and awake in the morning, every day!

Here we go.


Girly Morning Routine


1. Take a Cold (Or Lukewarm) Shower


Taking a shower with cold or simply lukewarm water is probably the best way to wake yourself in the morning.

If you are having trouble getting up early and being productive in the early hours, the cold temperature makes you alert and also improves your working efficiency.

It takes some time to get used to it (and I certainly recommend trying it out in warmer months), but it’s quite worth it if you manage to get used to it.

If you don’t have time for a cold shower in your morning routine, you can also use a cold-water splash on your face when you wake up.

It will improve blood circulation and reduce puffiness on your face.


2. Drink Water


Every morning when you wake up, your body and skin are parched and dehydrated.

Drinking plenty of water (while you go through your morning routine) will make you feel fresh all day long.

Water can also make your skin look plump & hydrated.

Drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning, and keep drinking water all day long.

I love to use lemon juice and cucumber to add some flavor right to my water bottle, and it also makes it easier to drink.

Moreover, drinking some water before going to bed can also make you feel less tired in the morning (just don’t overdo it, as too much water before bed can sometimes make you even puffier in the morning).


3. Exercise Those Morning Grumpies Away


If you are not a morning person but have to wake up early, don’t worry and follow this simple step to move your body in the morning.

Just get up and start briskly walking around your room for about 5 minutes. That’s right, just walk around the room.

This will improve your blood circulation, and energize you for the day ahead.

Including exercise in your morning routine makes your body and mind fresh as well as healthy!


If you have more time, you can also practice a quick 10-minute workout for maximum benefit.


4. Good Breakfast Is a Must In a Healthy Morning Routine!


That’s right, a good day begins with healthy food.

It really helps to have a breakfast that is rich in protein and fiber, because it can make you feel energized for longer.

Try not to take coffee instantly when you wake up, especially on an empty stomach (and yes, I admit that it is hard because freshly brewed coffee is sometimes enough to wake me up completely).

Do remember to take plenty of water with it, though.

My favorite healthy, beauty-boosting breakfast meals include oatmeal with berries, avocado toast, eggs Benedict, or simply a cup of yogurt with fruits.

5. Choose Refreshing skin products


If you have dull skin, you will look tired and sleepy, no matter how extensive your morning routine gets!

Dark circles and red eyes are sure giveaways that you haven’t slept properly.

I recommend using a good moisturizer and, if you have time, a Vitamin C sheet mask just after cleaning your face.

I personally had superb results with this Garnier Vitamin C Sheet mask:

It’s gentle enough for my sensitive skin, leaves me looking bright and radiant and the amount of serum is just unbelievable!

I have enough to put on my face both after masking and in the evening of the same day (I like to keep it refrigerated!).

You can also use a cold spoon to get rid of the under-eye bags and some ice cubes to reduce face swelling too.

After using a mask, freshen up your skin by using concealer and a light-coverage liquid foundation.

Finish by using a translucent powder to get a natural appearance.

This skincare morning routine involves just a few products but it’s enough to make your skin look less tired and more radiant throughout the day!


Tips For The Night Before Your Morning Routine


Plan To Get Some Proper Sleep


If you feel drowsy and pretty much not at the top of your game all day, it is a clear sign that you might be suffering from sleep deprivation.

Humans really need a night of proper sleep in order to look fresh and feel less tired in the morning.

Not even the best morning routine is good enough to combat body exhaustion.

Experts suggest that an uninterrupted sleep of 7-9 hours is sufficient for an average adult.

I have personally found this to be a sufficient amount of sleep for normal functioning but this may vary for everyone.

Your body needs rest and sleep according to its internal clock, so if you want to look amazing in the morning, remind yourself that proper sleep helps to mitigate any tiredness and makes you look fresh.


Stop Using Screens Before Bed


You have probably heard this many times before… But I bet you’re still doing it.

When it’s time to sleep, using electronic screens (including television, laptops, and smartphones) is disruptive.

These devices emit blue radiation which is not only harmful to your eyes but also reduces your ability to fall asleep fast.

Avoid using screens an hour before you go to bed so that the eyes get adapted to darkness, and your body prepares to sleep.

And that is it!

I hope you will try this super-simple, girly and effective morning routine to look and feel your best in the morning + stay more energized throughout the day. And if you need to motivate yourself in the morning (you know, to fight all those battles that are penned in your schedule), here’s how to do it.

Also, I have a specific morning routine for anxiety, if you’re battling this affliction in your mornings too.
