8 Morning Routine Tips for a Great Day

In the recent months, everyone’s life has been shaken up a bit. Between kids being on summer break, and the pandemic wreaking havoc on the world, you may find yourself sleeping in later, rolling out of bed into your “work from home” space, and logging in remotely while still in your pj’s. While there’s nothing wrong with that, (and something very special about being able to work from home), not having a balanced morning routine can leave you feeling scattered and your skin looking dull and washed out. Developing a simple morning routine can set you up for success, and in turn, keep your skin radiant throughout the day. Despite the current situation you find yourself in, read on for some helpful tips to simplify your morning routine, so you show up with radiance and grace!

#1 Make Your Bed
As soon as you wake up, make your bed. This small, simple habit will set the tone for the rest of your day. Check off this task to create a snowball effect for the rest of your morning routine. 

#2 Keep Your Phone on Airplane Mode
Some people like to leave their phone outside of their room entirely, while others use it as an alarm. In both cases, throwing your phone on "airplane mode" before going to sleep will prevent you from checking your notifications and emails first thing in the morning. Give yourself time to wake up and take care of your business to feel ready before you switch off airplane mode and to start your “virtual day.” 

#3 Combine Steps
A little multitasking goes a long way. To rinse off any allergens or nighttime oil build up, wash your face in the morning with Doctor D. Schwab Herbal Foam Cleanser and towel dry. Follow with the spray on  Doctor D. Schwab Herbal Toner to refresh, hydrate, and balance skin’s pH. While the toner is drying, brush your teeth or hair to save time during your morning skincare routine

#4 Drink Lemon Water
To help purify your skin and body first thing in the morning, drink warm lemon water. It aids in digestion and promotes detoxification, and the Vitamin C in lemon may help reduce wrinkles and the appearance of aging.

#5 Find Quiet Time
Carve out some space in the morning where you won’t be interrupted, or before anyone in your home is awake for private, contemplative time first thing in the morning to meditate, pray, journal, or anyway you’d like to pause and reflect. This time will set the tone for the rest of your day. There are numerous benefits and studies linked to meditation (including reduced premature aging in skin). Journaling in the morning can also shift your day, whether you write out a schedule, make a gratitude list, or simply release and organize your thoughts on paper rather than taking them into the day with you.

#6 Morning Movement
Take a walk, stretch, or workout first thing. You’ll get your exercise out of the way, and remember, it doesn’t have to be complicated - dance around to your favorite music! Find a movement that inspires both your mind and mind. Be sure to toss your Doctor D. Schwab Invisible Glove™ Hand Sanitizer in your gym bag to stay sanitized and protected from germs if you head out to the gym or a studio.

#7 Eat a Nutritious Breakfast
Take special care to fuel your body and brain in the morning for energy to perform during the day. Plus, your skin will shine brighter if you provide it with the best nutrients! 

Skip the heavy foundation and start your day by enhancing your skin with the Flawless Skin Fluid® Tinted Moisturizer. As soon as you apply the mineral-based, lightweight formula will make your skin complexion appear smooth and dewy. The Flawless Skin Fluid® will save your day and make your morning routine a breeze with it’s natural finish that conceals redness and softens fine lines. The Flawless Skin Fluid® can be used as a highlighter and adds glow and a boost of radiance to your skin.

Look and feel your best throughout the day by starting it off on the right foot and adding in these simple steps.

6 Lifestyle Habits to Stay Healthy and Boost Immunity

The best defense is a good offense. With the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many people are concerned with staying healthy and strengthening their immune system. The immune system helps to prevent infection and fight off illness. As just one of many systems in the body, it requires balance and harmony with the rest of your body in order for it to function optimally. 
Doctors say the best way to stay healthy is to wash your hands, practice social distancing, and staying home as much as possible. Here are six healthy-living strategies you can implement from the comfort of your home to improve your overall health and give your immune system the upper hand. 
1. Wash your hands and keep frequently touched surfaces clean.  If there is one thing the COVID-19 outbreak has taught us, it’s personal hygiene (anyone else notices how much they touch their face?!). Doctors across the board agree washing your hands frequently is an absolute necessity to prevent illness and keep you and your family safe.

Brighten Your Skin, Brighten Your Life

Has being cooped up inside all day given you a lackluster feeling? The stress of being in quarantine can bring dullness to your mood and in turn, your skin. If you’ve noticed a lack of radiance in your skin recently, there’s no need to worry. With just a few simple reminders (you’re already wearing sunscreen everyday of course), and a little skin TLC, you can get your glow back so you’re strutting out of quarantine with a pep in your step (and a smile on your face!). 
Get Your Glow Back!
Hydrate and Maintain Healthy Nutrition  If there’s one thing you can do to positively impact your skin and overall health, it’s drinking more water. Dehydration can trigger moodiness, fatigue, and cause lasting damage to your skin such as fine lines and wrinkles. When you’re dehydrated, it decreases the amount of blood flow to your skin making you look tired. Aim for 8 glasses of water per day and keep your skin glowing and bright. 
“You are what you eat” absolutely applies here. What you put into your bo…

Maybe you’ve finally settled into a routine, maybe you’re refusing to accept to the “new normal”; maybe you’ve been doing everything you’re “supposed” to be doing during quarantine (eating healthy, staying active, hydrating, getting enough sleep, etc.), or maybe you’re just barely getting by each day. Everyone might not be in the same boat, but everyone’s in the same storm right now. Whichever boat you’re in, here’s a short guide of 7 things you can try out to help you stay afloat through the rest of quarantine.
1. Find Peace. Whether you’re living alone or feeling distressed in a shared space, it’s important to set aside a few moments for yourself every day. It’s vital for your mental health (and those around you) that you take time for yourself to find peace in this chaotic time. See if you can incorporate one or a…
