Welcome to My Morning Routine, where Behati Prinsloo and other good-life gurus share their personal (frequently surprising, often healthy) morning rituals—to help you make your a.m.’s more awesome.

Supermodel, Victoria’s Secret Angel, and new face of SK-II’s #OneBottleAwayFrom campaign

When I wake up, it’s usually because the baby’s crying. My husband [Editor’s note: That would be Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine] and I go get her, and I’ll make coffee, with almond milk—no sugar. If I have time, I’ll drink water with lemon first—it always makes me feel good. I give Dusty her breakfast, and Adam takes over while I brush my teeth and wash my face.

The first thing I use on my skin is SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, which I pat on all over—my skin tends to be on the dry side, and this makes it feel more hydrated, radiant, and toned. After that, I usually use the SK-II R.N.A. Power Eye Cream. I love Luzern’s Force De Vie Crème Luxe moisturizer because it’s really clean, so if I’m not going outside, I’ll use that. Otherwise, I’ll mix it with a non-greasy SPF during the day. I’ve been rebuying Control Corrective; it’s my staple.

Next, I curl my lashes—I don’t put mascara on every day, but I definitely use lip balm. When I was pregnant, Lily Aldridge gave me this whole bag of Windsor Edwards lip balm—it’s all-natural, with peppermint and eucalyptus, so it’s a little cooling. I can’t live without it. If it’s a no-makeup day, that’s it. When I do wear makeup, I love Josie Maran’s—it’s easy to use.

For breakfast, I’ll make eggs with a piece of toast and avocado, or I’ll do oatmeal with berries and honey—that’s usually my go-to. We’re also a big smoothie family.

Dusty usually takes a nap around 9:30 or 10 a.m.—that’s when I’ll work outI do yoga to stretch and get my body moving—it’s my form of meditation. My teacher is Jennifer Perry. Adam trains with her husband, Chad Dennis. They’re longtime friends of ours and just opened their own studio in Los Angeles called Roam. She usually comes to me, and we do vinyasa—a lot of movement, not a lot of standing poses. I’ve also been really loving Body by Simone, which is more cardio and some floor Pilates. It wakes me up and makes me feel really good.
