BEAUTY: Two Minute Mornings

Who else hates mornings?

 We all know that dreaded feeling on a Monday morning when your alarm goes off. We head straight for the snooze button. Once, twice… until finally we have to drag ourselves out of bed and into the bathroom. By this point, if you’re anything like me, you’re running late! This calls for a quick and easy way to prepare your face for the day, (I’m even a poet and I didn’t even know it).

I’ve tried a fair few face cleansers and moisturisers, some specifically for my skin type (oily and sensitive) and others that had gotten the seal of approval from friends. Nothing worked for me. I’d end up with either inflamed patches on my face or breakouts. Not to mention the time it takes to apply all these products, it just didn’t work for me. So, my secret? Simple’s bar of soap.

And you can get two bars at a time!

The entire Simple collection is brilliant if you’re conscious about harmful ingredients or using products that are too heavy but in particular though their good old-fashioned soap is fantastic. It takes the best part of two minutes and honestly, my skin is clear and feels smooth. I always prep my face with warm water to open its pores and to wash off the lather I use cold water to seal its cleanliness. To finish, I use Simple’s light hydrating moisturiser as my face produces excess oils and I use a liquid foundation so my skin doesn’t require too much added moisture. And voila – you can now head to work with supple and refreshed skin and gain an extra ten minutes in bed!
