Let’s be honest about it, us moms have limited time to spend on ourselves. That’s why, when it comes to our beauty regimes, there are a few must-have products that we need. We don’t have the same amount of time on our hands as we did pre-baby. Because of this, we need beauty products and tools that make getting ready to leave the house quick and easy.
In case you’re struggling to balance parenthood and beauty – don’t worry. You’re not alone. I thought I would share a few tips. Take note of this advice and treat yourself to these little products, and you can make beautifying yourself that much easier.
For your hair
Let’s start by talking hair. The best thing that you can do to make doing your hair in a hurry easier is opt for a style that’s easy to manage. Ideally a style just below your shoulders, nothing longer. To make doing your hair even easier, a good hair brush is a must. Tangle Teezers are amazing, as they can be used to quickly brush out your hair, getting rid of tangles.
You’ll also find having a detangling spray on hand incredibly useful, especially if your hair tangles easily. For a quick hair styling product that also hydrates hair, Argan Oil is a great spray to have. You know those days when you roll out of bed a little too late to shower, but your hair is looking a greasy and lank? Well, what you need is a bottle of dry shampoo – when it comes to reviving greasy hair, nothing works better.
For your makeup bag
When it comes to our makeup, as moms we have barely any time to apply it. So any products that can make makeup application quicker and easier are essentials.
To make applying your concealer and foundation easier, invest in some makeup brushes. By using brushes instead of your finger, you won’t have to stress about washing your hands before leaving the house. Or, if brushes aren’t for you, how about a blending sponge? These are a fantastic tool to have, and make applying your base makeup ten times easier. You can check these sponges out online on sites that sell a range of beauty supplies. For cleaning your brushes and sponges, use cleansing wipes to save time.
If you want your makeup to stay in place all day, a good primer, setting powder and setting spray are all musts. The chances are that once you apply your makeup, you have no time to re-do it, so it’s important that it stays in place for hours.
For your skin
After you have a child, your skin changes and needs a lot more care. The problem with this being that you have limited time, and most probably struggle to fit skin care into your day. Make things easier for yourself by investing in an in-shower moisturizer that can be washed off after a few seconds. You won’t have to mess around waiting for it to dry, as soon as you get out the shower you can simply get dressed and go.
If you want healthy skin, exfoliating regularly, is crucial. If you don’t have time to scrub your face, kill two birds with one stone and invest in exfoliating cleansing wipes. You can use these to remove your makeup and exfoliate your skin at the same time, saving you time and money.
So there you have it, all the beauty essentials every busy mom needs. As well as a few handy makeup and beauty hacks that make getting ready a little easier.
