Beauty Tips For Busy Moms To Follow

By Janine Hughes

Being a mother is a round-the-clock job that requires a great deal of time, money and effort. As a result, many mothers don't often have a lot of time, money or effort to invest in themselves, particularly if they happen to be working as well. These beauty tips for busy moms will help to make it a little easier to look and feel good even when things get hectic.

Having a haircut that works for a woman's lifestyle is essential. The right haircut will suit a woman no matter how it is styled and will look good even when there isn't much time to do any styling at all. Wash and go cuts are perfect. A good stylist will give a proper consultation, often for free, before a decision needs to be made about what to do with the hair. Also enquire about all necessary products to maintain the style.

Speaking of hair, dry shampoo can work wonders on days when there isn't enough time for a wash. Oily hair in particular will benefit from this type of product. Furthermore, using a dry shampoo will reduce the need to wash hair as often, which makes it a perfect choice for women who have dyed their hair, as it helps to preserve the colour for longer.

Stock up on travel size versions of your favourite products and put them into an emergency kit for the car or your purse. That way, you will always be able to look well presented, even if you haven't had time in the morning to put on makeup. Think about items like lipstick, perfume, a small hairbrush and a concealer so that you are always prepared.

A good night's sleep is not always possible, though it is preferable. For puffy eyes or dark circles, cold products work best. A cold ice pack placed over the eyes for ten minutes will work wonders, or simply put two teaspoons in the freezer for a few minutes. Gel eye masks also work well, but in the event of there not being enough time to indulge in one, consider using an eye gel and leave it in the fridge to get the maximum benefits.

Instead of using a foundation, consider cutting beauty regime time considerably by using a tinted moisturizer. This will help to keep the skin looking young and fresh while masking any flaws without caking the skin. Furthermore, a product that already contains SPF will add another benefit by protecting the skin from sun damage that can speed up the aging process.

Familiarize yourself with one or two go-to looks and hairstyles that you can execute well when you are pressed for time. The more you practice these looks, the quicker you will get at completing them. You may have one or two favourite cosmetic products that you cannot do without. Keep these products nearby at all times and learn to live without the unnecessary things to save time.

Finally, as obvious as it may seem, it's important to set aside some time every now and then to do some pampering. Be it a trip to the salon or simply a soak in the tub at home with an exfoliating face mask, it's super important that a mother gets time to look after herself. This will ensure that she is able to perform at her best.
