Natural Products for Simple Morning

Owning your mornings can lead to owning your day.  When I started focusing on using my time more intentionally in the morning, I realized I needed a morning routine for natural beauty.  Health & fitness goes far beyond what we eat and how we exercise!  It also applies to the products we use.  I knew that I needed a morning routine for natural beauty using natural products!  But I also needed it to be a simple morning routine!  Too many steps = failure in the long run.

Are you looking for a morning routine for natural beauty?

Just a few simple steps can help you to do this!  Self-care in the morning can really help you feel your best and take on whatever comes your way.  One of my goals for 2018 was to be more intentional with my time.  I have found that by implementing a simple morning routine, I’m able to focus on my goals of being intentional and not wasting time!

Tom’s of Maine is a great place to start!

As a busy mom, I want to use products that are safe and natural, but also do not add a ton of steps to my process.  With very little time to myself in the morning, I have to find natural beauty solutions that make my routine easier.  One of my favorite products is Tom’s of Maine® Antiplaque & Whitening Toothpaste and Tom’s of Maine® Orange Blossom Beauty Bar.  Tom’s of Maine® was one of the first brands I tried when I started making a swap to more natural beauty products!  They have been a trusted name in natural for over 48 years, so I knew they would be a great start!  I love that I can still whiten my teeth naturally with Tom’s of Maine®!  I’m pretty sensitive to scents and the more I learned about fragrance, the more I realized, I wanted to have more natural scents as a part of my morning beauty routine!  Whole Foods is my favorite place to shop for natural products!

Natural Products for Bathing natural toothpastes

Natural Beauty can be done on a budget!

You know I love to save you all money!  Budgeting is in my blood so I’m always on the lookout on how I can save money on the natural beauty products!  Whole Food’s has an app that you can download coupons to get $1 off any Toms of Maine® products!  I was pumped when I saw them in store and they were on sale!  The app made for even more savings.

Also – if you are looking to learn more about natural beauty and natural products, Tom’s of Maine® is partnering with Mind Body Green to show people how to bring a natural focus to their life, in fitness, health, and in personal care!  You can enter to win a year’s worth of free Mind Body Green classes and learn more about going natural in their e-book!  You can also learn more about Tom’s of Maine®!

These 7 steps have made my morning routine for natural beauty a breeze!  If you want to create a morning routine for natural beauty that is simple, keep reading!

Water upon wakeup

8 ounces of water right off the bat!  This will help you start the day hydrated!  Hydration is a no-brainer for your natural beauty routine.  Get your natural detoxification off to a start first thing!

Make Your Bed

Making your bed will be the second step in staying intentional in your goals for the year!  When you make your bed first thing, it really sets your day off to get some great things accomplished.  You’ll be more mindful of your goals, and more focused on getting those things you wanted to, actually done!

Brush Your Teeth

Tom's toothpaste

Dental care can be simple and natural!  I love that I can use Tom’s of Maine® Antiplaque & Whitening Toothpaste for my dental care.  No more harsh whiteners and chemicals I don’t want to put in my mouth!

Pay attention to your Skincare

Skincare in the morning is just as important as skincare in the evening.  If you use products overnight, be sure to rinse your face!

Shower with Natural Products

Natural Soap

Starting my day off with a shower gives me the time to collect my thoughts for the day and to focus on self-care.  Tom’s of Maine® Orange Blossom Beauty Bar has a pleasant orange scent from plant oils.  It’s just enough scent to energize me in the morning and help me to focus!

Moisturize

Kind of a given right?  Hydration is a no-brainer for a morning routine for natural beauty!  Our skin craves moisture!  Your body will be set after your morning water and hydrating with a natural moisturizer!

Simple Makeup & Hair

Keep it simple!  If your mornings are crazy for the season of life you are in, find one or two simple hairstyles that work well for you.  For me, that meant embracing my natural curl!  I workout in the morning so after a sweat fest, I can’t spend hours doing my hair.  Embrace what you’ve got, it looks amazing on you!  For makeup, a simple, natural BB cream, mascara and lip gloss can go a long way!

Did that sample of morning routine for natural beauty help you get started?  Here is what my morning routine looks like!

5:00a – Wakeup time!  Water, make the bed, put on my workout clothes.

5:10a – Move laundry.  I set my delay feature on our washer to have it start around 3:30a – it dries while I’m exercising.

5:10a – Morning devotional, reading

5:30a – Check email, do any quick work things I need to get moving or knocked out of the way

6:00a – Exercise!  Run on treadmill or do a 30 minute at-home workout.

6:30a – Make kid lunches, prep dinner ingredients, unload dishwasher, clean up.

7:00a – Get kids ready for the day.

7:30a – I get ready for the day.

8:00a – Leave for school drop off!

    I’ve been trying to be better about using more natural products in my routine. This was so helpful. It’s crazy how many toxins there are in our beauty products!

    This is a great simple, natural morning routine. I’ve been wanting to try more of the Tom’s products! I’ve tried the deodorant and the toothpaste but not anything else. Everything sounds great!

    Water first thing in the morning is a great tip! I keep a bottle by my bed and take a big drink as soon as I get up. It makes me feel so much more alert! Oh, and I’m super impressed that you get up at 5. Whoa!

    I love the idea of the orange blossom soap. We spent 3 months in Sicily, and the orange blossom scent in the Springtime there is one of the most beautiful fragrances I have ever experienced!

      Isn’t it the most beautiful scent??

    I used to use this toothpaste! I loved it! And it’s so important to pay attention to products that are toxic free and cruelty free. They are simply better for us!

    Wow! What a busy morning mama! I have just recently started getting up early to workout before work and it has been a great change. Also, I love Toms toothpaste! Been using it for a couple years now.

      definitely does help!! Its kind of a crazy morning but helps to have a routine!

    I love everything about your morning routine, except I’d need to bump it up about 3 hours. Sometimes I’m just getting to bed around 5 am. 🙂 I’ve never tried the toothpaste, but I do agree that natural is the best way to go in most cases, so now I’m going to have to look for it next time I’m in Whole Foods.

      February 22, 2018 at 2:45 pm

      We are probably on opposite schedules! I’m a morning person and usually in bed by 10p 🙂 maybe just flip flop the time!

    Great toothpaste! We always have great luck with this brand and really like it in our home!

    I love your schedule!! I’m so happy my little one is sleeping in more so I can start my own morning routine before hers! I’m going to have to look for those Tom’s products they sound amazing!

    I’ve looked at this brand of toothpaste a few times, but never tried it. Maybe I will!
