Secrets from the industry.
Seasons come and go, but one thing that shouldn’t is your morning routine. You can tell a lot from a person, simply by how they look in the morning: some tired, others fresh faced. How do you become Fresh faced? Here are some industry secrets:
When Rihanna said ‘Shine bright like a Diamond’, she was really talking about Teeth. It is important for you to brush your teeth, people judge them when you talk. Recently, we’ve noticed a lot of guys converting from a manual toothbrush to an electric toothbrush. We cannot stress at how white your teeth will become just from electricity. Yellow teeth can make you feel insecure, which can sometimes make you never want to smile, but with a better toothbrush, you can. Therefore we suggest that every single reader purchases an electric toothbrush, they start from £8. We can guarantee you that you will notice a difference in your teeth within two minutes.
In addition to white teeth it is important to compliment them with toothpaste. Why not be spontaneous?

Look around public transport in the mornings, its easy to see who actually puts an effort in simply by their face. Your face is a trophy. A trophy should be kept clean and from without blemishes, therefore use a facial scrub. A Facial Scrub not only eliminates Grease but spots too.

We at PAUSE have used every facial brand from Kiehls to Clean & Clear to Molton Brown and the only facial wash that’s eradicated both to your spots and grease is Cetaphil.

The focal point for your morning routine should be a Moisturiser. A moisturiser is a shield for your face, it protects, energises and smoothes. Therefore, it’s important to choose the best moisturiser that will shield your face for a long time.

This also uses the ‘Flower Method’ in which over the day your skin is continuously fed with moisturiser to help refresh and keep it energised. This is available for £8 from Boots.co.uk
