Bodycare Routine from Day to Night

Now that the temperature is firmly on the rise, summer holidays are in sight and we're baring our shins more than once a month, implementing a few season-friendly products into your post-shower routine makes all this a little less daunting. Keeping that reptile-like skin at bay is sometimes easier said than done, and it's taken me until now to get into good habits with my skin (sometimes even moisturiser is more than I can handle). With that said, when I do muster the energy to exfoliate, moisturize and oil-up everywhere from the neck down, the benefits are more than worth it and I wonder why I didn't do it sooner. Depending on the time of day or what I'm doing, I usually change-up what I'm using to suit. This is more of an evening combination, as the Aesop scents in particular are very indulgent suit best when you're winding down. I'm swaying towards oil over moisturiser at the moment but only in the evening as it's a bit too greasy for day-wear.

When it comes to the morning, I'm looking for scents to uplift and revitalize (aka any good reason to get out of bed), over a relaxing, luxurious scent that works the opposite way. Believe it or not, the scent of kelp and magnesium has quickly become one I associate with getting energised for the day, particularly during the week, thanks to REN's latest bodycare launch (read more here) so I'm religiously using the scrub, wash and cream combination in the early hours. A lack of time in the mornings also means that anything I do use, I want it to actually be doing something to my skin, rather than just making it smell pretty. Ameliorate's Skin Smoothing Lotion is the master of resurfacing the texture of your skin and I try to use it on a daily basis on the backs of my arms. Keeping it somewhere you usually reach for in the morning (like next to your toothbrush) is very useful in helping you remember to use regularly, as results with things like these only come with repeated use.

What do you use to wake up in the morning and unwind at night?
