After a long and chilly January, the last thing we need is another month of dark mornings and frozen extremities. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what February will bring, but never fear, help is at hand! I’ve rounded up six skincare and beauty products to help kick start your mornings and energise you for the day ahead.

Activbod Feel Great Shower Gel Concentrate £5 – The hardest part of getting up is precisely that; physically having to move your body from your toasty bed into a cold bathroom. This shower gel concentrate should make the whole experience a bit nicer though, as it contains sea minerals, green tea extract and almond oil to deeply cleanse your skin, as well as a pepper, eucalyptus and lemon fragrance to really blow the cobwebs away.

Nip + Fab Bee Sting Mask £14.95 – Although this is advertised as a mask, its thick gel consistency means it works fabulously as a serum when used sparingly. It contains bee venom (yes, really!) which improves circulation, effectively plumping and smoothing the skin, and the gel cools and refreshes the skin to help you feel a bit more awake!

GinZing Moisturiser £23 – Origins are true masters of skincare, and their GinZing range has an appropriately large cult following. Designed to hydrate and revitalise, this oil-free moisturiser contains ginseng and coffee bean extracts to create a healthy, vibrant glow. Talk about a good start to the day!

L’Oreal Skin Perfection Awakening Eye Cream £12.99 – One of the best ways to refresh your eyes in the morning is to apply a good eye cream. Dark circles, eye bags and fine lines can appear reduced thanks to the caffeine and vitamin C extracts in this cream. It’s also tinted so it brightens and illuminates tired eyes.

MUA Prime and Conceal Palette £4 – This is an absolutely genius palette. It might look a bit scary at first, but you apply these different coloured concealers in specific areas to combat different concerns. Lilac illuminates and neutralises yellow undertones, green neutralises and reduces redness so it’s great for covering spots, yellow conceals purple tones under the eyes, and peach adds radiance to any area. With this colourful correction kit in your beauty arsenal, no-one will know about your routine of late nights and early starts.

I Heart Makeup Go! Palette £3.99 – Another handy product to have on hand during busy mornings is the Go! palette from I Heart Makeup. They have created this set of six eyeshadows, a blusher, a bronzer, and a highlighter; basically everything you need if you’re doing your makeup in a rush.
