MORNING SHOWER & SKINCARE ROUTINE | MINIMAL & SIMPLE

🌱 My current morning shower + 3 step skincare routine 🌱 

⭐️ Low maintenance
⭐️ mindful 
⭐️ Streamlined 
⭐️ 10 minute 
⭐️ Minimal 
⭐️ Tox-free 
⭐️ Waste-free 
⭐️ Simple 


I’ve never been one to spend long periods of time getting ready for the day, throw and almost-one-year-old into the mix and that already limited time has been further reduced. 
What I do value though, is taking some time each day, however short or long for some self care + mindfulness practice. Some days I have to skip the shower and do the tooth brushing with a bubba on the hip but ( most ) of the time I get this whole short sha-bang in. 

Success after all, is not material, it is happiness. And taking a moment to fill your own cup is a big component of that. You cannot underestimate the positive influence this can have on your day. 

This is not a trending 13,575,527 step product skincare routine promising reverse-ageing and airbrushed looking skin. Most of that is marketing anyway. It’s just a busy-almost-36-year-old-mum's of one's few simple steps feel fresh and natural ( and freckly ) for the day.

STEPS

Dry Body Brush (I do this naked before showering)
Using light pressure, start at your feet and move up your body brushing always towards the heart. Avoid sensitive areas. Brush feet, legs and mid section then brush your arms. 

Shower
To save time I wash my face & body and also brush my teeth in the shower. 
Wet the konjac sponge and squeeze excess water out. Gently rub over face and rinse out after use. When it begins  to fall apart a bit it is ready to home compost and grab a new one! 

Floss
Super important! See compostable floss linked above 

Moisturise
I use my body butter from HOME by Natural Harry. I warm it between my hands to melt and then do a short version of Abhyanga and Ayurvedic all body massage. A bit like the dry body brushing, doing this supports the body in many ways.

Face oil
A couple of drops is all you need. My face oil recipe in HOME by Natural Harry is so simple. Just 2 ingredients. I use a repurposed dropper bottle for this. You can just use your fingers to gently work it in or, I love to also use a gua sha tool to gently massage it in. Doing this is a lovely relaxing practice with many benefits.

Tinted moisturiser
This beautiful, completely natural and SPF 15+ tinted moisturiser is so wonderful. I have used it for years almost every day. I got to know the product so well year before I sold it in my store Anna, the owner is a naturopath and all round legend. It is non greasy, smells wonderful and mild and absorbs easily. I find applying my face oil prior helps it to evenly blend and soak in well giving that very subtle glow. 

And that all folks. Short and sweet. I'm all for simplicity as you can see and I have shared these recipes and many, many more in my 3rd publshed recipe book HOME by Natural Harry. I have linked it here for you if you want to have a closer look and learn more. Otherwise, any questions please leave a comment below. Much love xx

    Hi Harry, you’ve probably been asked this a million times, but from where do you purchase your little jars & bottles? Thank you 🙏

    1. Harry says:

      Hi Kim,

      You could wash and reuse glass jars/containers from any store-bought products that store dry ingredients, such as sauces, dips and spreads. Otherwise, take a look at thrift stores, or ask your family, friends or neighbours. Quite often they have jars they are happy to let go of 🙂

      Hope that helps, thank you so much for your comment!
