NORMALLY:
- I fall out of bed, land on the chair in my office down the hall, and turn on the computer.  While the laptop boots up, I head for coffee.  After some time, perhaps even hours later, I comb my hair.  Maybe.

When I sleep, I twist around so that a rat's nest forms in the back of my head.  I have actually emerged from the house like this to let the dog out.  As I return to the house and glance in the glass pane of the storm door, I see the nest and spikes shooting up and out from the back.  Isn't it pitiful?  :lol:

I love the contrast in your two morning routines:  on the one hand, you have a luxurious lineup of Chanel skincare.  On the other hand, you have.....nothing!

Here's mine in words and photo form:

1. Cleanse with Paula's Choice One Step Cleanser.
2. Treat with PC 1% BHA Lotion or SkinMedica C+E Complex (I alternate).
3. Moisturise around eyes with PC Hydrating Treatment Cream.
4. Protect neck and around eyes with SunSense Moisturising Face SPF30+.
5. Protect face with SunSense Daily Face SPF30+ (which is tinted).
6. Apply almost any old lip balm (currently using a freebie from a credit union).

I'm very happy with this. I'm curious about Paula's spray sunscreen though, so may have to try this next time round.

 :lol:  Good one, SQ!

Cougar, I figure our bodies know when we need more sleep, so I'm glad you listened to yours and got more sleep.  I bet you felt a lot better that afternoon.

There is nothing wrong with you. Not one single thing. Any fault lies with the fashion/cosmetic/marketing industry that has trained you with false proof to believe that you’re not perfect.

*ahem*  The topic was morning routine.  Sleeping is a large part of my early morning routine!   :evil:

Wash my face and body with Sebamed Face & Body Liquid something (20+ yrs)

Put on La Mer Eye Balm (a couple of years now)

Apply PTR AHA/ BHA (thanks to Zuzu´s recommendation)

That´s it!

I found my GoW products a couple of days ago and have, again, tried Viper Venom and the peptide serum (DMAE?). The peptide serum smells of fish remains, it is really horrible.

I´ll be adding SPF soon, as spring is finally coming into town.

I did see something recently on TV about sleeping too much on a side of your face causing wrinkles.  Indeed, if I get LOTS of sleep AND sleep on back, I swear my face and eyes look more refreshed the next day.  But it's really difficult for me to sleep on my back  :(

Oh, that snooze button. Does anyone have the discipline to get up straightaway? I like to be conscious of being snuggled in bed for just a little while longer and to think about my dreams. And it sounds as if some de-wrinkling time wouldn't go astray either, so I'll start lying on my back in those last few ("few" as in somewhere between 8 and 32) minutes.
