We all have a morning routine, whether it’s waking up early and knocking out a quick workout or spending time with our kids before they log into their first Zoom school session. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, the way we start our morning sets the tone for the rest of our day. We’ve shared Kourt’s a.m. rituals and tips on how to become a morning person, and today we’re adding to the list with Camila Coelho’s foolproof routine.
The Brazilian fashion and beauty entrepreneur and founder of Elaluz (an inclusive and sustainable beauty line) generously gave us a peek inside her rise-and-shine daily habits. Read on to learn Camila’s morning hacks to feel refreshed and full of energy throughout the day.
Cold Water Face Wash
“Every morning when I first wake up, before I even have my first sip of coffee, I wash my face with cold water to wake up my mind and body. It gives me a jolt of energy so I can start my day alert, and it also gives my skin a nice base glow.”
Quick Face Massage
“Then, I massage my face with a gua sha tool for a deep Brazilian lymphatic massage that shapes my face and de-puffs after a good night’s sleep. When I used to travel a lot, this was a hack I used every time I got off of the plane.”
Sip Warm Lemon Water
“Something else to de-puff, especially if I didn’t sleep well during the night, is drinking warm water with lemon on an empty stomach. This helps rehydrate my body, wake up my mind, boost immunity, and flush out any toxins.”
Embrace Natural Light As Your Alarm Clock
“I sleep with my blinds open, allowing the sunlight to naturally wake me up. It’s so important for our mind and body that the first light we see is the sunlight and not the blue light from our phones.”
Prep Your To-Do List the Night Before
“I start off my day with a list of things that I want to get done that day. Making these obtainable goals allows me to have a much more productive day. I usually write my list before I go to bed at night, to give myself extra peace of mind and not stay up thinking about what I have in store the next day or wake up trying to remember.”
