Sometimes a hot shower isn’t even in the cards. But because we firmly believe beauty makes you feel good on the inside, it’s worth finding ways to get the job done against all odds.
Being a mother is a hands-on job. Whether you are a stay-at-home mom or a working woman, giving yourself time can be a challenge. So, if you’re a busy and tired mom who wants to look good but have no time, then we’ve got you covered. Here a list of a few time-saving beauty tips and tricks that can give your skin and hair some TLC:
Use baby oil as an instant anti-aging highlighter
Ever wondered how those supermodels get that, oh-so-fresh, dewy look? It's actually often as simple as baby oil. So grab some from your kid’s drawer and apply it on your cheekbones. Plus, it doubles as an anti-aging treatment.
Skip the nail polish
The truth is that chipped nail polish is worse than no polish. If you have no time to maintain your polish, it’s best to skip the nail polish. Whenever you get time, make sure you file the nails and hydrate your cuticles.
Use coconut oil in bed
If your skin and hair are too dry, then you can indulge in a night-time routine. Apply coconut oil to your skin and hair overnight. Next morning, you will wake up to soft skin and hair.
Use a CC cream
When you’re tired, your skin can take a toll. To look flawless in no-time, apply an all-in-one product like a CC cream. It will moisturise, colour-correct and make your face look more healthy.
Do your eyebrows at home
The best way to maintain your eyebrows is to pluck the extra hair once they start growing. If you don’t have the time to go the parlour for your eyebrows, keep a tab on when they start growing. You can also use an eyebrow razor to shape them at home.
Try hair-removing at home
The best way to get rid of body hair is to use a razor. Use a moisturiser or a hair conditioner on your body and use a razor for a quick shave. If you want to avoid razors, you can try epilators or at-home wax trips. The best way to maintain a hair-free body is to use wax trips and epilators at the time the growth starts coming. This way, you don’t have to spend hours removing the full-growth.
Use a sheet mask
If your skin is dry and flaky, you can invest in sheet masks. Whenever you’re taking a nap, apply a sheet mask on your face and just relax. This way you can boost your skin hydration and keep it firm too!
Get a no-maintenance haircut
Taking care of your hair can take time. Go for a haircut, which is low maintenance. This way you don’t have to spend much time washing, drying and styling your hair.
Use a lip tint
To make your face look more lively, always keep a lipstick handy. Once you’ve applied the CC cream, use a lip tint on your lips and fash. This will make you look fresh and even younger.
Try an egg white mask
An egg white mask will help to swiftly tighten up your pores and achieve a smoother complexion.
Just crack two eggs, discarding the yolk; you don’t have to beat the whites if you don’t have time. Spread the white onto your face and neck and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes. Wash it off et voila!
