Winter mornings are hard. Your alarm blares, the sun’s barely up, it’s freezing cold, but you still need to get yourself up, dressed, and out the door to face the day – which can seem pretty difficult from the warmth of your bed. That’s why it’s important to start your day right when you wake up well, the world’s your oyster!
Make Sure You Get Enough Sleep
Good mornings start with the night before. Most people need about 8 hours of sleep to recharge their batteries. This might sound like a lot, especially if you have to get up at the crack of dawn, but going to bed early really can make all the difference. Don’t underestimate the benefits of winding down in the evening, too – so that you can get off to sleep easily. Switching off your devices a little while before you head to bed can really improve your sleep quality!
Exercise and Wake Your Body up!
Your body needs to wake up as well as your mind so some light exercise can really set the tone for your day. It doesn’t have to be too strenuous. You could have a light jog, do some Yoga and Pilates or even meditate. All have been found to give tons of energy for the whole day. So why not give one of them a try now?
Eat a Balanced Breakfast
What you put into your body when it’s waking up sets the tone for the next 24 hours. So this is a great time to choose quality protein (whey protein powder, eggs, Greek yoghurt), healthy fats (avocado, olive oil), and complex carbs (oatmeal with blueberries). During your beauty sleep, your body loses water, therefore, make sure you wake up and replenish with those fluids immediately. Following on from this, you should be ready to go and enjoy your day ahead!
Shower, Shave and Style
A nice warm shower is the best way to kickstart your day and (exciting news alert) you will soon be able to add Cornerstone’s 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner to the mix. Our 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner is formulated, blended and bottled in the UK in conjunction with leading experts in the hair care industry.
It is designed to strengthen and reduce dandruff in your hair. We achieve this by including ingredients that are effective against microorganisms causing dandruff and the re-appearance of dandruff but gentle enough for everyday use. One of the main active ingredients (Dandrilys) also helps to reduce inflammation, skin irritation and itching along the scalp. The hair strengthening ingredients contain properties that will penetrate the hair cuticle to build strength from within, whilst reinforcing, lubricating and protecting the surface of the hair.
Follow this step with a close, clean shave and remember to use a daily Moisturiser to leave your face healthy and hydrated for the day ahead.
