Once your alarm goes off in the morning, it can be a mad dash to get ready and out the door to work. And if you have children to get ready and off to school, this process can take even more time. But just because you don’t have much time to get ready doesn’t mean your look should suffer. Included below are beauty secrets that will help save you time while getting ready.
- Use a Hair Remover
Using a hair remover like Hairfree hair remover will not only cut your shaving time down percentage- wise, it will remove the hair all together. It is a cream that you apply once weekly for 4 to 6 weeks and it shrinks and eventually removes the hair root from the follicle — permanently. Imagine all the time you could save if you never have to shave or wax again.
- Remember the 3 E’s
If you are running late, focus on the three E’s — eyelashes, eyebrows, eyeliner. First of all, tame and/or tint your eyebrows. Then, gently line your top lid. Next, coat your top and bottom lashes with mascara. And as a finishing touch, apply a coat of lip balm on your lips, and you’re ready to go.
- Try Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo definitely saves time and water. If you don’t have enough time to hop in the shower, spray dry shampoo on your locks. Then with a paddle brush blow out sections of your hair. The oils from your hair and the dry shampoo will mix to give your hair some va-va voom.
- Products That Multitask
Finding multi-purpose products can save you a ton of time and money, plus it can help cut down on cluttering your vanity area with products you just don’t need. For example, find a moisturizer with SPF in it. Look for an eye color that can double as a cheek color. Find a bronzer that can double as a blush. Always be looking for products you can get a dual use out of.
- Perfect Waves
When you first wake up in the morning, spritz your hair with a little bit of water and braid it back out of your face. Then, go about your morning. Later, right before you leave your house — or right before you get out of your car at work take out the braid you will have the most beautiful wavy hair all day that easy goes from office to dinner.
- Alternative Manicure
When you don’t have time for a manicure and nice coat of nail polish, try buffing your nails. You can find four-sided buffing tools that help you make your nails nice and shiny. After buffing, moisturize your hands with moisturizing hand cream with SPF (sun damage is what really ages your hands). You will be surprised how nice buffed nails and moisturized hands look.
- Tinted Moisturizer
In order to save a massive amount of time and money, instead of wearing foundation and bronzer, just wear tinted moisturizer. This may work best for summer months or warmer climates. It is suggested that you get a tint a little bit darker than your skin. Best of all you can quickly and conveniently apply this product with your fingers.
- Use a Microfiber Towel
Blot and dab wet hair with a microfiber towel before you dry it. The microfiber draws water away from the hair and absorbs it, leaving your hair drier than a regular towel would. Not only does that mean your hair will dry faster, it also means your hair will be exposed to the heat of the dryer for a shorter length of time and thus less likely to be damaged.
- Use Exfoliating Body Wash
Taking care of your skin is important, but, just like anything else, it takes time. Use an exfoliating body wash to exfoliate and moisturize in one step, so you don’t need to apply additional moisturizer when you get out of the shower. Talk about a time saver.
- Streamline Your Vanity Area
You might be surprised how much time is wasted when you have to search through items you don’t need to get to what you want. One easy way to streamline your vanity area is to organize the products you use by frequency of use. If you have duplicates of products or things you only use a couple of times per month, you should store them in a separate area. Then, make sure the products you use on the daily are easily accessible and organized in the order that you apply or use them.
