Doe Deere, founder and CEO of Lime Crime Cosmetics, believes that a morning routine is crucial to success and happiness. It sets the mood for the way that the rest of the day might go, and many people who have found success in life admit that they have a set of morning rituals they follow. These can help to improve attitude and increase production throughout the entire day, and Doe Deere starts her morning routine by waking up at 8:30am precisely without an alarm.

 

Doe Deere likes to get 9 hours of sleep, when possible, and believes that good sleep is one of the secrets to beauty. She starts her day out with a full glass of water and does some light yoga stretches. After the yoga, she attends to putting her breakfast together, which is usually grits with some yogurt, fruit, and fresh squeezed orange juice. She then takes a look at the schedule for the day and connects with her team. She also takes some time in the morning to catch up on emails and social media.

 

After taking care of all of this, Doe Deere listens to some music and begins her morning makeup routine. She uses a spread of her own products and spends anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour applying her cosmetics. She enjoys having this time to herself in the morning and also loves being able to draw on her own artistic abilities to create a unique look for herself. Instead of showering in the morning, she takes a shower at night, which helps her hair to be dry so she can style it in the way she desires.

 

Doe Deere knows there is science behind how pets can lower stress levels in people, and she loves cats. In fact, she has two Persian cats of her own and loves to spend time snuggling with them and petting them in the morning. She has admitted that she treats her cats like they are royalty, and hanging out with them in the morning always puts her in a good mood; no matter how she felt before.
