Mothers are always busy by nature, but that doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice looking good while juggling your job and your family life!
Working mothers can find it especially hard to keep on top of a regular beauty regime while they take care of their family, run their home and are continuing to climb up the career ladder at work. Quite often a busy mother’s beauty regime is to take a quick shower, put on the minimum amount of make-up possible, then head off for the school run and work.
However, we have gathered together some handy beauty tricks that you can incorporate into your daily routine that take no time at all! You’re welcome.
Maximising your shower time
While in the shower, take a few second to smooth through a conditioning hair oil treatment, pop on a shower cap and let the warm water of the shower help the oil penetrate your hair and condition it while you shower. Grab a handful of body scrub and go to work on your dry skin areas, such as your elbows, knees and heels. Take off your shower cap and rinse away the oil and body scrub. Use a combined hair and body wash so that you don’t need to use two separate products for your hair and body.
All in one foundation
The science behind modern make-up products is quite amazing. These days there is no need to use a foundation followed by a dusting of face powder. If you suffer with spots, you don’t need to use a separate concealer either! There are fantastic all-in-one skin foundation make-up products that do the job of all three – foundation, concealer and fixing powder. The foundation goes on wet, but quickly dries to give your skin a flawless and even look that is a perfect base for a lick of blusher. You can try a tinted moisturiser to give your skin a healthy sun-kissed glow, even in the middle of winter!
Take some well deserved ‘me-time’
Take a weekend off just for yourself. Get your partner, friend or family member to take care of the kids for the day while you head off to a beauty clinic for a well deserved aesthetic treatment. Treating yourself to either a laser skin rejuvenation, chemical peel or some laser hair removal can really help to boost your self-esteem and make you feel more positive about your looks.
If you want it – fake it!
Busy mother’s may have little time to take to a tanning bed to give their skin a healthy glow. Instead give yourself a bit of colour by using fake tan. Gone are the days of the streaky orange self-tanning products. These days top beauty manufacturers have combined skin moisturiser with gentle tanning agents in ready to use body lotions that leave you with a soft, all-over glow. The colour develops in a very natural way and can help your skin feel more healthy and radiant.
You can keep looking your very best with these top beauty strategies, but make sure you take some time out to treat yourself to some well deserved beauty therapy treatments that you cannot do at home.
