Do you ever feel like you don’t have enough time for a beauty routine, and then feel unattractive without it? I’ve been there. It’s a very depressing feeling. Being a mom is a full time job…and a job that does not have breaks, at that. It has both morning and night shifts every day of the week, for years on end. Fortunately, I’ve found that there are some quick beauty routines that every busy mom can incorporate into her daily routines to help her look beautiful.
With kids running all over the house and you having to chase after them, the sweat buildup in the skin can become a problem. If you have kids, you’re probably also touching things that are not so clean, and end up touching your face. This can cause problems too, as you can have a breakout from all the stress. Some skin care is needed. You should use a cleanser that can be applied quickly and set in for less than one minute. Use a cleanser that can double as a moisturizer, in order to save time.
If you get stressed out, your face can turn a splotchy color. It’s helpful to have a good skin whitener on hand like Revitol or Meladerm. These are super-easy to apply, and they can help prevent hyperpigmentation.
Since you are in the house and generally taking care of your little one, use this around the eyes to save on time and still get your work done. It will automatically brighten your eyes and conceal all the dark spots that come with deprivation of sleep. (Anyone who has been a mom knows all about that.)
This is where things get a little interesting. If you happen to have a few minutes for your makeup routine, you can go for liquid foundations that last longer. However if not done well, these can come off as unnatural and a plastic look. Powdered foundations are best for you if you are in a hurry, and besides, they are easier to remove later on.
Eyebrows are definitely one of the most important factors in my beauty routine. Even if I skip the concealer and foundation stages, I always make sure to do my eyebrows. This goes a long way to shape your face, and in the end make you come out as extremely organized. Curl your eyelashes if you have time and add mascara to make your eyes pop out more. Eye shadow is not really necessary in this case, as you can leave it for outings.
Use color, it’s as simple as that. Go for lip glosses that add a little brightness to your face but do not come off as too much for a busy mom. I like lip glosses because they take almost no time at all, and have a huge impact on how I feel about my beauty.
You can do this entire routine in 10 minutes or less. Personally I always cleanse my skin again before bed, as it’s an important routine for both long-term and short-term beauty.
