Morning routine with natural cosmetics: Which products to apply?

We hear a lot about morning and night-time skincare routines, these are the best ways to care for and pamper our skin. The products we use are important to start the day with a clean, healthy face. The key point is a good balance between different healthy habits such as sleeping enough, eliminating stress and following a good diet, but in this post we will also focus on which essential cosmetic products you should include in your morning skincare routine to achieve healthier skin.

Washing and cleansing are not the same! 

The alarm sounds and you walk like a zombie through the corridor until you reach the bathroom? It's time to open your eyes and wake up. In order to do this, washing your face with water may be enough, but if you want to cleanse it, it is not enough. You may wonder, why cleansing my skin if I just got up? Because at night your skin continues working, generating excessive sebum and accumulating sweat. We recommend using a facial cleansing gel or a micellar water to cleanse your face. The micellar water acts with natural micelles and does not need to be rinsed. It is important that you know what micellar water is in order to use it correctly. In addition to cleansing, it will also help you to refresh your face during the day, for example, after doing sport.

Tones, removes impurities and closes pores

Continue your morning routine with a purifying facial toner that restores pH after cleansing. The toner revitalises and rejuvenates skin tissues, regulates sebum and closes pores. This is an essential product for mixed and oily skins. Cleansing your face correctly will allow the following products you’ll apply to penetrate deeper into your skin and to work more efficiently.

Fight dark circles and give elasticity to your skin

Increase hydration to the deepest layers of your skin with a Green Vitamin Concentrate Serum that block the pollution and provides firmness and elasticity. At the same time, effective antioxidants and active ingredients reduce, reverse and prevent the signs of skin ageing. If you want to focus on your eye contour area to combat dark circles, then you will need a eye-contour serum.


Cold temperatures and dry skin? You need a daily moisturiser!

Low temperatures may directly affect your skin, leaving your skin drier and more sensitive than usual. The cold can also irritate skin leaving small red patches and a feeling of tightness on your face. Let’s include a Bloom Orchid Face Cream in your morning skincare routine to provide your skin the hydration it needs. The best choice? A natural moisturising facial cream that you can apply after your facial serum.

Healthy hair finish

Don’t forget to take care of your hair too during your morning routine! If you want to get a finishing treatment for your hair, apply 1 pump of hair serum to dry hair. What does hair serum do? You will manage to steal split ends and prevent frizz. With the 100% natural concentrate of the Intense Recovery Hair Serum you will be able to nourish and soften your hair, giving it more vitality and shine. Do you iron your hair every morning? Apply the protective serum before ironing to reduce the damage of the hot hair straighteners.

Hydrate your hands and nails, and you’ll be ready to go!

A basic essential that also fits inside your bag is a hand cream. This is an essential element especially during the winter, when it’s important to hydrate your hands and nails daily to protect them from the external agents. We recommend an easy-to-absorb hand cream to save time in your morning routine, try the Pro-Repair Hand And Nail Treatment. Its innovative formulation boosts hydration with nourishing plant-based oils such as shea butter, cotton seeds and avocado oil.

Adapt your morning routines to your skin type

Here’s a little secret… one of the most important factors in a skincare routine is the order in which you apply your products. Apply them in order of density, from lowest to highest. This will allow the active ingredients to best absorb into your skin. Regarding skin type, remember that you must adapt each routine to your skin. For oily skin types you must look for non-comedogenic products, and for sensitive skins choose products that are free from synthetic perfumes, to avoid irritations.

You will find your skincare essentials to start your morning routine in the most natural and healthiest way possible!

    Consejo de uso

    Buenos días, no se si me podrán solventar una duda. Estoy usando la crema tratamiento AZELAIC mañana y noche pero tengo duda si estoy usándolo bien, ya que después de aplicármelo añado serum y crema hidratante. Es contraproducente? Además, por la noche me doy crema con retinol.un saludo, buen día

    Freshly 29 October 2020 ¡Hola soy Yaiza, encantada! Nuestra recomendación es aplicar el Azelaic en la rutina de mañana y de noche después de limpiar el rostro, y antes del resto de productos de tu rutina, así que la rutina que nos comentas sería correcta. Por otro lado, no nos consta contraindicación de su uso con otros productos, aunque te recomendamos dejarlo absorber, ya verás que es muy rápido, antes de aplicar los siguientes productos. ¡Un saludo!

    Tratamiento para mí piel

    Buenos días, me gustaría q me dijerais que tratamiento iría mejor para miel. La tengo mixta deshidratada..y algo para el cabello que lo tengo seco. Gracias

    Freshly 17 March 2019 ¡Hola, Aroa! Muchas gracias por tu comentario. Según tu tipo de piel, te recomendamos, como primer paso, una buena limpieza facial con el Agua Micelar Fresh Green. Para una limpieza en profundidad añade el Rose Quartz Facial Cleanser, que además hidratará tu piel en las zonas más secas y actuará de sebo regulador en las zonas más grasas. Continúa el Tónico Facial Purificante Detox incidiendo en las zonas grasas, acabarás de purificar por completo tu rostro de esta manera. Tras la limpieza te recomendamos aplicar nuestro Superoxide Dismutase Face Mist que te ayudará a reducir imperfecciones unificando el tono, controlando la secreción sebácea e hidratando la piel. Por último añade a tu rutina el Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, acabará de aportar hidratación a las zonas más secas de tu rostro, y además te ayudará a tratar y prevenir todos los signos del envejecimiento, así como manchas e imperfecciones. Para el cabello, comentarte que en estos momentos nuestro champú está agotado, pero prontito os traeremos noticias que os encantarán, ¡así que muy atenta! Como tienes el cabello seco, mientras puedes echarle un vistazo a la Nourish Restore Hair Mask, que nutre en profundidad y recupera el brillo de la fibra capilar. ¡Mil gracias!
