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.
You can literally swipe these EYE SHADOW STICKS on your eyelids and go! Gives the perfect amount of color and it stays put all day. Literally takes 2 seconds. Same thing with these BLUSH STICKS.
Then I finish up with mascara. I have been a long time user of DIOR MASCARA, but have recently been trying this MARC JACOBS MASCARA.
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!
