Being a mom is a job in itself, and on top of that, to make out time to stick to your old elaborate beauty routine may seem impossible. You need not indulge in a lengthy beauty routine to look good. Here are a few beauty hacks every busy mom should know about.
1. Accept Your Natural Hair:
Most women hate their hair texture and spend a lot of time blow-drying, curling, or straightening their hair. That is a time-consuming task. Accepting the texture of your natural hair will change your life, as you will have a ton more time for your kids. Moreover, no hair texture is unacceptable, and you will find a few celebrities who carry the same textured hair with a great style.
2. Go Nail Polish Free:
No nail polish may sound challenging initially, but you already know it takes a lot of time to apply nail paint and let it dry. Getting pedicure and manicure will make life much easier, and you will never get tired of the same color.
3. Braid Your Hair Overnight:
If you need non-tangled hair in the morning, French braid it every night. You will wake up with wavy and manageable hair which needs no heat styling. You will save a lot of time and also look your best.
4. Get Double-Duty Products:
If you stick to products with one purpose for skincare routines, you will be stuck with a lengthy and time-consuming beauty routine. Instead, get products that solve multiple purposes. Like, get a moisturizer that acts as a sunscreen to reduce the skincare routine steps.
5. Make Use of Good Quality Products:
To save time in the long run, you need to maintain healthy hair and skin. That will only happen if you ensure to use high-quality products that do not use harsh chemicals on your skin and hair. If not, you may end up with a skin or hair condition, which takes a lot of time and energy invested in its treatment.
For example, check the ingredients of your lipstick before you buy one. Also, throw away any product that has expired, or else you can end up with a condition named lip eczema that needs a lot of attention to get rid of.
6. Get a Low-Maintenance Haircut:
Getting your hair trimmed such that you need not spend much time taking care of it is a great way to save time. Longer hair needs more care. If you get your hair trimmed to a manageable length, you will find it easier to save time in styling and maintaining them.
7. Master a Few Simple Hairstyles:
You need not indulge in complicated and time-consuming hairstyles to look good. Great YouTube tutorials are available that teach you to make simple hairstyles that take a few minutes and look great on you.
The Bottom Line:
Looking your best may still be time-consuming, but you can always look good even when you have your hands full. It is all about being willing to learn shortcuts to looking beautiful and staying natural.
