Lately, with my schedule a bit in flux these days with both the weather and NYFW kicking into high gear, I’ve been squeezing my workouts in during the mornings. If it’s warm enough (which thank goodness, it has been lately!), I’ll opt for a morning run along the Hudson (around 6am, eep!). If it’s a bit chillier, or there’s fresh snow on the ground, I’ll head to my trusty Equinox or a Barry’s Bootcamp class to wake up.
I’ve always considered myself an early riser — and when the mood strikes me just right — I love working out in the mornings. It’s a great way to energize your day and by the time most folks are just thinking about their first cup of coffee, you’ve already covered a few miles or did your fair share of squats to get your booty looking fresh for summer.
For early mornings like these, I keep my beauty routine simple, with a fresh layer of BB cream and moisturizer to perk up my skin. The folks over at Clinique recently introduced me to their new eye cream, Pep-Start, which I’ve been testing out for my undereye area, right after applying my all over facial moisturizer. If you’re like me, your under eye area is probably super sensitive when you first wake up (meaning I sometimes look like a zombie on the treadmill), but Pep-Start has been an easy step in my routine that actually perks up my skin (i.e. it feels more plump, making my eyes pop just a tad bit more). 
As for this past Wednesday’s early morning workout with Clinique? Well let’s just say I experienced my first 7am dance/rave/Daybreaker event. In short, I thought I was signed up for 7am yoga. Instead, I was greeted by fire acrobats, Knicks City Dancers and a ton of glow sticks. But that’s another story, for another day, perhaps? 😉
Have you guys tried out Pep-Start yet? You can snag your own at Sephora right here.

    • Yikes, I'm an idiot! I just default to wearing sunglasses all the time, I didn't even think twice about. That's my fault. I'm sorry, it's a silly oversight on my part.
