Quick and Easy Beauty Tips for the Busy Mom

  • No time to do fancy foundation applications? Fret not. Why not find yourself a tinted moisturizer? Maybe see if the brand of moisturizer you currently use (if you use one AND YOU SHOULD) carries a line of tinted moisturizers. You get so MANY benefits out of one little product – moisturizer for your delicate skin, protection from the sun (as most tinted moisturizers contain SPF) and a bit of makeup coverage! Even better, you can go for a CC Cream that is all that but also has skin benefits such as anti-aging serums in them!
  • Hair – Oh yes, many have this issue. Especially when it comes to oily hair. Get yourself a dry shampoo! These instantly refreshen and volumize your hair. Taking good care of you hair is just as important as taking care of your skin. And you know, mom buns are so stylish!
  • Get yourself a brow pencil, or gel. Or anything for the brows. Having nice looking brows overall makes you look put together.
  • MascaraThis is my favorite! I feel you can wear mascara without any other eye make and still look like a million bucks. No need for eye liners or eye shadows. Just a couple coats of mascara and voila!
  • Most importantly, a lipstick, gloss, anything for the lips that you like. Can be a neutral color or even bright. Depends on what you like. But I find without color on my lips, I look like death and just adding that color makes me look alive! But then again, some have gorgeous lips without anything on them, so this beauty tip is for the moms who need some color like me.

Now, for the evenings as that is the most important time of day for your skin as its been through so much during the day, I recommend using a mask twice a week. This makes your skin feel and look like new.

Yes, sometimes 10 minutes of mask time is hard because you’re tired, but it is very crucial to take care of your skin because it is hard to get it back once it starts aging. And the one product I feel every woman should use every night (and morning too) is a serum. Those are the best! I actually use organic cold pressed rose hip seed oil as my serum because of all its benefits (read more about it HERE!).

But seriously, don’t cut yourself short when it comes to your skin. Make sure to wash it daily with a great cleanser and then use toner so your skin doesn’t get dry (before doing the above mask and serum).

And I’m sure you use a moisturizer already, and if you don’t, THEN GET ONE! Because at night, you can spare a few extra minutes to take care of yourself as opposed to those rushed mornings. Plus, your skin will look amazing the following morning! {If you need some beauty products recommendations, check this post HERE!}
