How To Speed Up Your Morning Routine

No matter what your agenda reads for the day, mornings can be tough for some (especially when you’ve run out of K-cups). We can recommend you some great local coffee spots—but when it comes to your beauty routine, we’ve got all the details on how to speed things up and get you out the door in no time—no matter what’s on your schedule. Keep reading for all of our tips!

SHOWERING/DOING HAIR THE NIGHT BEFORE

Prepping the night before not only shaves off minutes of getting-ready time in the AM—it also means more time to sleep in (looking at you, night owls). You can lay your outfit out, fix your hair and even prepare your morning coffee. When you wake up in the morning, your hair might need a few touch-ups courtesy of bed head, but with a little spritz of Aveda Air Control, you’re ready for the day (and feel like you’ve got your life together—what’s better than that?). We love Air Control because of its light, flexible hold, without the stickiness. Bonus: it has net-zero climate impact, so you can feel good about making sure your hair stays put all day long.

IF ALL ELSE FAILS, AT LEAST YOU HAVE DRY SHAMPOO

We know life happens—and sometimes preparing the night before is not an option. If all else fails, dry shampoo is always there for us. Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo instantly revives your hair and senses with the calming, iconic aroma of 25 pure flower and plant essences. Absorbing excess oil and impurities, it’s perfect for all hair types (and even better on second—or third—day hair). For an extra boost that detangles and conditions, Shampure Thermal Dry Conditioner keeps things soft, with natural movement and shine.

EYELASH TINT

On top of your hair routine (and everything else that comes your way), it can be overwhelming to think about how your makeup routine can fit into the mix. Reverting from the default “I’ll-do-it-between-traffic-stops” crutch, our Eyelash and Eyebrow Tint Services make things way easier* (and safer). These tinting services add life and color to your natural lashes and brows, which means you can forego your mascara and brow products—and lose the guilt of hitting the snooze button.

KEEP THINGS NATURAL (WITH A POP OF COLOR)

In the spirit of keeping things natural, using a brightening, firming eye crème can give you glowy, rested-looking eyes right when you wake up, and we turn to Aveda’s Tulasara Wedding Masque Eye Overnight for just that. By working during the night, a key time for skin’s natural repair process, this eye crème smooths the appearance of lines and wrinkles to give skin a firmer, more lifted look. Formulated with curcuminoids, a potent extract from turmeric root that helps to brighten skin and promote a more even looking skin tone over time, it’s also dermatologist-tested and non-acnegenic—so there’s no added setbacks to your morning routine.

Last but not least—your lipstick. (Because with a quick swipe, you can feel that much more put together—a big confidence booster even on the most chaotic of mornings). That’s why we love Aveda’s Feed My Lips line—with 23 long-lasting shades that stay on all day long (8 hours to be exact), condition lips, and more importantly—won’t wear off on your coffee mug.
