Whilst being a mom is hard work, it is also one of the most rewarding jobs you can do. However, what with hectic work schedules, child care itineraries and after school routines. It can feel like you never have a minute to yourself, let alone time to fit in a beauty regime.
Finding the time for keeping up your beauty regime can be somewhat challenging when you are running about after the kids and cooking dinner. By the time you have a minute to yourself you are most probably exhausted.
To help you fit a beauty regime into your busy schedule we have put together a few quick and easy beauty tips below:
Tip 1: Get a good haircut
Ask your hairdresser to give you an easy to perfect hair-do. Explain that you want something you can let dry naturally that looks great even if you don’t have time to style it properly.
For a mommy-friendly do, opt for a style that rests between your chin and shoulders, preferably no longer. You want something that is not too long to manage, but can still be pulled back into a tidy ponytail or bun.
Tip 2: Invest in a good concealer
If you are up in the night with the kids, you are going to end up with dark circles under your eyes. Invest in a good concealer that is quick and easy to apply and gives you maximum coverage.
For excellent coverage try MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. It offers good coverage, looks natural and lasts all day long – so is perfect for busy mommies.
Tip 3: Take a shower at night
Swap your morning shower to the evening. That way you won’t be rushing and once the kids are in bed, you can spend as much time preening as you want to. Use your evening shower time to pamper yourself – wash your hair, shave your legs, exfoliate your face, etc.
An excellent facial exfoliator that is super gentle and effective is L’occitane’s Riz Rice facial scrub. For shaving your legs, Forever’s Hand and Face soap (can be used all over the body) is great – it is gentle and lathers well.
Tip 4: Use an in-shower moisturizer
Instead of moisturizing once you get out the shower, opt for an in-shower moisturizer. They are quick and easy to use, leave no sticky or oily residue and can be quickly washed off.
The simplicity and quickness of in-shower moisturizers make them perfect for busy moms. No more having to sit and wait for your moisturizer to dry before you can get dressed.
Tip 5: Take care of your body
If there is an area of your body that requires special care, like your pores or perhaps your post-pregnancy stretch marks, make time to take care of them. For instance, to help reduce your stretch marks, you could invest in a tube of the best Stretch Mark Cream.
It is important that you feel confident about your body, so make sure you make time to look after it properly.
