The sun has peeked its sleepy head, the leaves are glittered with dew and the birds are starting to chirp. Morning has broken, and it’s time to start the day! To get you going, we’ve put together some of our favorite Althea products to create an easy morning routine. Get ready to perk up before you head out the door!

Double duty cleansing pack to refresh the skin

Step 1 - Cleanse
Whisk away impurities and wake up from last night’s slumber with the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer in Rose! This 10-second, 2-in-1 cleanser pack showcases real, fresh ingredients and incorporates them into a system that allows a deep, clarifying cleanse while boosting the skin with nutrients and goodness. The rose version helps to refine and smooth the skin, giving you a fresh and even complexion in the morning.

Hydrate, smooth and prep.

Step 2 - Tone
Sleeping in air-conditioned or colder temperatures can really wreak havoc on your skin, causing it to be dry and lose elasticity. The Primer Water from the Bare Essentials collection isn’t your conventional toner - this one has a thicker, more hydrating formula that absorbs deep into the layers of skin to plump them up, prepping your complexion to take on the next steps of your beauty routine.

Bye-bye redness, hello hydration!

Step 3 - Moisturize
As you go about your day, you don’t want to be worrying about stickiness or greasiness, so opt for a lightweight moisturizer like the Skin Relief Calming Cream! This one is infused with ingredients that not only provide you with long-lasting hydration, it also helps protect your skin from harmful external factors, keeping your skin healthy and happy.

Safe from sun and sebum

Step 4 - Protect
Shield your skin from it’s no.1 enemy: the sun! UV rays are really harmful to the skin and can cause premature aging, pigments and even sun damage to your delicate skin. The Petal Velvet Sunaway is a lightweight, hydrating formula with an SPF of 50 and PA+++ that blends seamlessly into the skin without a white cast, making it a great everyday option. Use it on its own, or under makeup for an extra smooth finish.

Set it and forget it!

Step 5 - Set
We’re all about fresh faces, so no greasiness here! Banish shine with the Petal Velvet Powder, a finely milled formula that glides over the skin to control oil and minimize the appearance of pores. You’ll be left with radiant, fresh skin all day. What a way to start your morning!
