Four morning rituals I couldn’t live without

August 10, 2016


The morning for many of us can be a real struggle, our bodies have completely relaxed and gone into a state of repair, upon waking we feel stiff and fatigued, opening our eyelids can be one of the days biggest challenges. So for me there is no better way to feel wide awake than to splash water over my face. I’m also currently using the L’oreal men expert Icy-caps shower gel, it cools the skin leaving me feeling refreshed, cleaned and revitalised a great wake me up product.


Hydrating your skin from within should be one of the most important factors when starting your day. And continuously drinking water throughout the day leads to much healthier looking skin. However I don’t just want my skin to look OK I want it to look great, so after my shower I religiously hydrate my skin with a good moisturiser. My go-to product right now is the L’oreal Men Expert Anti Fatigue Hydra Energetic. The application is smooth and coverage is great, but most importantly it helps me feel hydrated throughout the day. The moisturiser prevents evaporation which helps lock in water to keep the skin fuller and supple leaving a nicer even tone & a less worn or haggard appearance the stresses of life can cause.


There is no better way to boost you energy levels than to enjoy a nice cup of warm coffee, however it is Summer and I don’t always feel like a warm drink, so I have found the perfect alternative with added benefits. PhD Nutrition UK have just recently launched a new product called amino drive, The shake comes in a fair few flavours but for me the caffe latte with almond milk seals the deal. Full of essential amino acids this energy booster comes with a great profile and loaded with caffeine to keep you focused for the day ahead.


I can’t think of a better way to give your mind & body a huge boost of energy than to start the day with exercise, It will keep you focused and feeling great. Endorphins will be flowing through your body meaning you have no choice but to start the day with a smile. Aside from the elevated mood & activated energy you never new you had the, long term benefits from regular exercise are a reason in its self to get yourself outside and seize the day.

I hope you guys found these simple tips helpful & you apply some of them into your everyday routines. I will link all the products below for you guys, Leave a comment with any questions & I will respond to them all. Have a great day –  AG

    Hey Ali,
    Another great post. What kind of exercise do you do in the morning? Is it a quick 5 minute HITT workout and then gym in the evening or something different?
    Love the blog
