Simple Beauty Routine for Busy Moms
The kids are back in school, and while summer had no shortage of busy days, I think this school year will keep me just as busy. I think you can talk to almost any person and they will tell you how crazy busy they are. Whether you are a mom or not, we are in this constant season of hustle and bustle. It’s non-stop and we are trying to maximize every second of every day.
One thing that should not be compromised is your beauty routine. I know I have said this before, but I really wish I had started a solid skin care routine at a much earlier age. I didn’t see the importance of it, but now I realize how important it is to take care of your skin. Despite being a busy mom, we should take care of our overall appearance. You feel better about yourself and your 60-year-old self will thank you!
Here’s everything you need to know about my beauty routine for those busy on-the-go days.
First Things First: Skincare
Skincare is the single most important part of your beauty routine. It is so important to take care of your skin! A cleanser and moisturizer are going to be the essentials for your skincare routine. I wash my face every morning with TULA’S GENTLE MILK CLEANSER and every night I double wash my face with CETAPHIL GENTLE CLEANSER and TULA’S CLEANSER. Then I make sure I use a good moisturizer in the MORNING and at NIGHT.
If you want to go the extra mile, these DR. DENNIS GROSS PEEL PADS are easy to use couple of times a week and will brighten your skin. ORDINARY makes a hyaluronic acid that locks in moisture. It is so reasonably price and you can add it to your AM and PM skin routine.
Next Up: Make-up
I like to keep my make-up simple and as natural looking as possible. Here are a few products I have found that save me time when applying my daily make-up.
I have been using AVENE TINTED MOISTURIZER. I love the coverage and it has 50 SPF. So this one product has the trifecta: moisturizer, foundation, and SPF.
I use the LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK every day. It keeps my lips moisturized and is the perfect lip gloss.
I use TARTE SHAPE TAPE for my concealer. This is the best deal you will find on this product.
Finish the Look: Hair
Dry shampoo is life-changing and will help you extend your time in between washes. It is beneficial for so many reasons. Saving you time as a busy momma is the best reason of all!
You can quickly add textured waves to your hair to give it a finished look without spending a lot of time on your hair. I don’t have to curl my entire head but instead just use these products to achieve this look.
I divide my hair into sections with DRYBAR HAIR CLIPS.
And I use the T3 SINGLE PASS CURLING IRON to curl a few pieces.
Then I will finish with DRYBAR’S TRIPLE SEC 3 IN 1 FINISHING SPRAY. My all time favorite hair product.
I have also used OUAI WAVE SPRAY without using the curling iron.
I hope this helps as you go about your busy days!
