Post your morning routine

I believe in taking care of myself, in a balanced diet, in a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the icepack, I use a deep pore-cleanser lotion. In the shower, I use a water-activated gel cleanser, then a honey-almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb mint facial masque which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after-shave lotion with little or no alcohol because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm, followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

Are you a woman? :p

EDIT: My routine (just for comparison):
1) Wake up
2) Shower
3) Deodorant
4) Brush teeth
5) Shave (if I need to)

That's pretty much it.

Wake up.
Wash my face.
Take a shower most of the time.
Don't exercise.
Don't eat.
Go to school.

Just out of curiosity, do you:

a) get manicures
b) get pedicures
c) get your hair cut at a "salon" as opposed to a barber?
