If you have exactly 25 seconds to get yourself ready for the day – I have the perfect skincare routine for you!

In this article, I’m going to show you how to create a Morning Rush Skincare Routine

It’s all-natural, effective and completely no-fuss, so that even on those days where you feel you barely have enough energy to get dressed – you can still step out the door feeling and looking your best!

To create this collection – you’ll need three spray bottles and a few natural ingredients. I’ve included a shopping list for you. This a great thing to make on a Sunday, so that you are ready to go all week. It’s like a meal prepping, but for your skincare! 

When you wake up, all you need to do is follow the routine. And the results are that you look refreshed and well – with a boost of energy to take on the day! Here’s the plan:

Shopping List

First things first, get yourself set up and make sure you have all the ingredients – you can find everything in your kitchen pantry or supermarket:

  • 3 Spray Bottles
  • Cotton Pads
  • Aloe Hydrosol
    Pure hydration for your skin, it’s packed with nourishment that will soothe, heal and create more radiant skin. You can use Rose Water if it’s easier for you to find.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar 
    A fantastic ingredient that cleanses and exfoliates your skin for a smooth, glowing complexion. It also helps to keep your skin balanced throughout the day .
  • Sunflower Oil 
    A nutrient packed oil that soaks right in. It’s good for all skin types, oily and dry skin all benefit from sunflower oil.
  • Lime Essential Oil
    In aromatherapy, lime essential oil is stimulating and refreshing, the scent makes you smile, it feels cheerful.
  • Rosemary Essential Oil
    In aromatherapy, rosemary essential oil is uplifting, it helps to clear the mind. We’re also using rosemary in the Cleansing Face Wipe, because it’s a great antiseptic that cleanses your skin.
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil 
    In aromatherapy, eucalyptus essential oil helps to fight mental fatigue, it perks you right up!

If you have a home diffuser, you can also diffuse the essential oils in the mornings to help yourself feel more alert, clear headed and positive as you start the day.

Here below are the recipes you need:

ONE: Cleansing Face Wipe


In the mornings you won’t need to wash your face, but it’s so nice to splash and freshen your skin. What I love about these wipes, is that you’ll find it picks up excess oil that accumulates over night – and even a little dirt or makeup, that sometimes gets missed!

Step 1: Freshening Toner

A toner is often called a “second cleanse” this toner is incredibly hydrating, cleansing and helps prep your skin for the day ahead.

  • 1/2 cup aloe water  (this is a hydrosol)
  • 1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 10 drops rosemary essential oil, which is a natural cleanser (with added anti-aging benefits!)
  • 4 oz spray bottle
  • Cotton pads
  • Start by spritzing a cotton pad with our Freshening Toner
  • Wipe all along your face – you can use this safely around your eyes
  • The shelf life is 1 month
  • Tip: Cleansing wipes are good for your pre-teens who don’t like to wash their face!

TWO:  Spray On Lotion


If you’re in a rush in the morning, you might skip your moisturiser. You might skip a lot of things, let alone rubbing lotion all over your legs and body. But with a spray on moisturiser, you just need to spritz and go!

Step 2: Spray on Lotion

A spray on moisturizer has all the components of a lotion, water and oil. Water hydrates your skin, the oil locks in that hydration and keeps your skin supple.

  • 1/2 cup aloe water
  • 1 tablespoon your favorite oil: almond or coconut. This season, I’m loving sunflower oil for skincare.
  • optional, Fresh Energy EO Blend: 10 drops lime, 6 drops rosemary, 8 drops eucalyptus
  • Spray bottle
  • Cotton pads
  • Shake the bottle first to combine the oil and aloe water
  • Spritz all over your skin, face and body
  • Let it air dry – the oils will soak right in
  • Spray on throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated if needed

A natural perfume not only has a beautiful scent, but also nourishing properties for your skin. Keep this in your bag and spritz on your face and body throughout the day – to freshen up, hydrate your skin and to give yourself a little boost of energy!

  • 1/2 cup distilled water

  1. I’ve been doing water + microfiber cloth followed by a moisturizer in the morning. Your method seems so much more invigorating and equally no-fuss. Pinning!

    • Hi Courtney! Yes! I’m loving microfiber cloths for cleansing – you might even try the Cleansing Face Wipe, and use your cloth instead of cotton pads. Even better! 🙂

  2. I love the idea of a spray lotion, but it looks like your instructions are for the cleanser. Do you just shake to combine the oil into the spray before each use?

    • Hi Melissa! Yes, they’re super similar – but the difference is that the cleansing toner has aloe and applecider and the lotion has aloe and oil

      You shake to combine, since we don’t have an emulsifier – but it goes on really nicely! Hope you give it a try 🙂 PS – your blog is beautiful!!

      • Hi Militza, Melissa’s right — there seems to have been some oversight in the editing where the cleanser instructions got copied into the spray lotion section.

        Also, it seems the perfume should be step 3, not 2?

        Thanks for the article though, very helpful for creating a quick fuss free morning routine!

        • Hi Rachel!! You guys are 100% right! Thanks so much!! I updated the post and fixed the errors – lucky to have an extra set of eyes on this. Thanks again Rachel and Melissa! 🙂

  3. This is amazing! I was wondering where would you suggest to buy these oils from? Other than ordering online I’m not sure where to find these unique type of oils or the type of products you use in some of your beauty products. Let me know thanks!!!

    • Hi Zakia

      Thanks so much, I really appreciate it! If you can’t easily find essential oils – a good tip is to ask people behind the counter at health food stores, yoga studios, farmer’s markets or any space where you might find like minded people. They might direct you to a little store or essential oil brand that you hadn’t seen yet 🙂

      Most of the ingredients that I use, can be found in health food stores or supermarkets – I hope you can find it! Where are you based? Let us know if you uncover any good spots!
