A Beauty Editor's Morning Routine With VEGAMOUR

Mornings are sacred to me — so much so that I even schedule my A.M. self-care routine as the first priority in my planner! Taking care of my skin and hair is a ritual that helps me start off each and every day on a positive note. It really helps me to prioritize “me time” during those early hours before the to-dos of the day ahead.

I find that if you begin the day looking and feeling your best (and in a clear headspace), you’ll experience more of the same positive energy throughout the day. Read on for the morning routine that helps give me a physical and mental boost. Plus, find out what clean, naturally nourishing products you should use for some much-needed morning TLC

Morning Mantra: Begin With Intention

Each morning offers the opportunity for a fresh start, allowing us to choose our energy for the day. I immediately write in a gratitude/intention journal upon waking (while still in my bed) and then head to the beauty closet to start my skincare routine!

Morning Mantra: Oils Are an A.M. Essential

Depending on the day, I use an ice roller in combination with my daily lymphatic drainage massage. However, I always use my morning skin serum with a drop or two of Pure Marula Oil before using a rose quartz gua sha massage tool on my face, forehead, neck and hairline. 

I apply the oil by gently dabbing — rather than patting or rubbing it in — to pamper and protect my skin before massaging my skin in a downward motion to allow excess lymphatic fluid to drain. In the winter, I also use a bit of the oil on my cuticles, which get super dry. It’s also helpful for taming static-induced flyaways.

Morning Mantra: Serums Go Beyond Skincare

Besides taking care of my skin with serums, I also use them on my lashes and hair. 

Each morning, I use GRO Lash Serum on both my lower and upper lashes. I’ve noticed such a dramatic difference in both the length and volume of my lashes ever since I started using the serum. I even go so far as to skip mascara completely on some days, which I had never previously done!

Next, I apply GRO+ Advanced Hair SerumTip: I keep it right next to the lash serum on my vanity, so I won’t forget to use both in one fell swoop! I part my roots in sections, fill the dropper completely and apply directly to my scalp, massaging in with my fingertips. I love that it dries instantly and isn’t greasy, so it doesn’t weigh down my hair. Better yet, each time I see my stylist, she remarks how much thicker and quicker my hair has grown ever since I began using it! 

Morning Mantra: Daily Movement Is a Must

I like to do some sort of morning movement, whether it’s yoga, cycling on my stationary bike or mat-based strength training. Not only does it ensure I won’t miss the opportunity to work out later in the day, those exercise-induced endorphins are a great physical and mental boost. 

And, thanks to GRO Dry Shampoo, I can’t use the excuse of messing up my hair (I shower and wash my hair at night, before bed) by working out. One thing I love is that this ultra-lightweight dry shampoo is formulated without benzene or talc. Instead, it’s powered by clean, phyto-active ingredients such as USDA organic certified rice hulls, mung bean, red clover and kaolin clay, and it’s free of synthetic fragrances. 

This multi-tasking formula is balancing, volumizing, texturizing, refreshing and absorbs excess oils, odors and sweat. It’s also perfect for my dark brunette hair as its eco-friendly propellant perfectly and evenly disperses the dry shampoo and doesn’t leave behind those annoying telltale white traces other dry shampoos do. 

Morning Mantra: Supercharge Your Day With Supplements

Now that my morning movement is done, it’s time to bolster my whole-body wellness with my morning supplement routine — and, let’s be honest, I also need my homemade AM adaptogenic cold brew caffeine kick. I keep my supplement drawer right under my caffeine corner in the kitchen, so it’s all together, and I stock up on a few months' supply at a time of GRO+ Advanced 3-pack Gummies with VEGAMOUR’s Subscribe & Save option. Not only does it save me money, but I never have to worry about running out! 

Each gummy features hair healthy nutrients such as biotin and folic acid, plus, vitamins A, B-5, -6 and -12, C, E and zinc to support and nourish the scalp and hair from the inside out. Plus, the natural strawberry flavor tastes great!

Maximize and Make Each Morning a Wellness Ritual 

There you have it: Healthy habits for your hair and beyond that encourage mind, body and spirit wellness that begins from within. With VEGAMOUR, I can rest assured my skin and hair are as safe as they are healthy. Try prioritizing a self-care practice by integrating these ideas and non-toxic scalp and hair wellness products into your daily routine. Then, watch your hair, along with your whole body wellness, thrive and flourish to look and feel its very best!
