Too busy for a beauty routine?
I know that a lot of you out there are busy working mothers or over-worked career women who just don’t have much time for your beauty routine. You want to look good but you just cannot afford the luxury of tending to your beauty needs with the hectic schedule. I have always wanted to look high maintenance without actually being high maintenance. The truth is, there are days when I spend way too much time in the bathroom!
When I do have a busy work day, still want to work out and adhere to a beauty routine, I multi-task. If you’re like me and hit the gym after work, try this: After your evening work-out, apply a mask and while it’s working its magic, hop in the tub, shave your legs and exfoliate your calloused feet. See how much you can accomplish in just a few minutes? I’ve even been known to call my mom when I’m in the tub. The sound of splashing water always gives me away but while she may laugh, she’s still always glad I called. Just don’t drop the phone in the water!
If you think you don’t have time for a mask, think again. Try AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask. There’s one for oily skin and one for normal to dry. It only takes two minutes and makes a real difference. Don’t even think about telling me you don’t have two minutes. Nobody is that busy.
One of the best ways to save time is to find products that accomplish multiple purposes. One of my favorites is Colorescience Line Tamer. I use this product every morning to lock in moisture, absorb excess oil, protect my skin from the sun, calm redness and prime for makeup. What an amazing product. It’s a real life saver!
I was very impressed when I stumbled upon a web site called 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic. This site has a lot of great tips for women who want to look good but are strapped for time. Make sure you check out the piece on Christine’s manicure routine. I usually feel that I don’t have time to do my nails but this article has good ideas for making the process easier and faster.
As always, please continue to share your tips. We busy women are always looking for ways to shave time off of our beauty routines!
