Mamamia’s What’s In Her Bag series asks Aussie women to give us a look at their everyday beauty routines. Kind of like a sex diary but with beauty. So… not like a sex diary at all. We discover what women are putting on their faces, how much of their hard-earned cash goes towards beauty, and what works for their busy lives. There’s no right or wrong, just real beauty from real women. This week, Mamamia writer and podcast host Emily Vernem shows us what’s in her bag.

AM skincare routine.
I'm going to be honest with you. This is a safe space right guys? My morning skincare routine is the only and I repeat ONLY reason I wake up 20 minutes earlier than I need to.
It is the one daily act of self-care that I can't live without. I find it so therapeutic and only when my routine is complete, do I feel awake (even though by then it's around 8:45am).
Before we get into it, I have a confession. I have an aversion to sinks. Don't get me wrong I still brush my teeth at the sink, but the thought of carrying out my sacred morning skincare routine in my bathroom makes me feel icky. The majority of my routine takes place in my bedroom with a guest appearance of my shower which is where my daily AM skincare journey begins.
