Getting out of bed — whether it's to go to work, work out, or just face the world — can be a struggle, especially when it's basically freezing outside. You know how it goes. Your bed is a warm, safe haven and anything that is not your bed is cold and terrible.
But because we're doing this thing called adulting, we ultimately have to pry ourselves out from under the covers (after hitting snooze approximately 49 times) and get ready for the day. To help make that a bit easier, here are 11 of our favorite products to leave you feeling refreshed and awake, even before the first sip of that delicious drug we call coffee.
PLANT Bodywash and Body Oil
You'll obviously spring your skin and senses into action with a body oil that's named Wake Up. This organic body oil is lightly scented with rosemary and lemongrass and will surely give you a boost out of your sleepy state, especially if you use PLANT's Get Happy Bodywash in the shower first. It's made with essential oils of geranium and peppermint (and only 8 ingredients total!) and is perfect for even the most sensitive skin.
skinnyskinny Body and Foot Scrubs
Even if you have to leave the house to get your drinkable coffee, you can invigorate your skin in the shower with freshly ground fair trade coffee beans thanks to this amazing Black Coffee Organic Body Scrub.
We're also fans of the Rosemary Mint Organic Foot Scrub before bed. It's important to take care of your tired tootsies to ensure that getting out of bed tomorrow isn't even harder.
Clark's Botanicals Eye Cream and Moisture Mist
There's only so much that concealer can do, so if those stubborn under-eye circles get you every time, take a preventative measure every morning with Clark's Botanicals Anti-Puff Eye Cream. The combination of vitamins and botanicals make this paraben- and sulfate-free formula a favorite.
After you've busted the dark circles under your pretty peepers, refresh your whole face with the Cellular Lifting Moisture Mist before scooting out the door. There's even a smaller size bottle that's perfect to keep in your purse for a mid-day pick-me-up.
Blithe Patting Splash Mask
Face masks are great, but it's nearly impossible to find a spare 15 minutes in the morning, especially when the idea of even getting in the shower seems daunting. Well, that's where this new Korean skincare trend called "splash masks" comes in. Simply add water to the Patting Splash Mask, splash it on your face, and pat dry for an instant pick-me-up. You'll get the same glow as a mask in a fraction of the time.
