We know that between doing the school run, cooking dinner, buying Christmas presents and actually getting to sit down for 2 minutes, there’s little time left for a skincare regime.
Here are our top beauty tips for busy women:
Stay hydrated and eat healthy
We know you’ve heard this one hundreds of times, but this really is the best tip of them all. Maintain a balanced diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables and leafy greens, and drink at least 2 litres of water a day.
Although it requires a little discipline, you’ll see almost instant results - your complexion will become brighter and clearer, and you’ll lower those toxins that drag your energy levels down. The best bit? It takes no extra time out of your day and means you’ll have more energy to tick more off your to-do list.
Organise your products
The things you need are so much quicker to find when they’re nice and organised! Try keeping your ‘everyday’ skincare and makeup products that you use on a daily basis in one place - e.g. the top shelf or drawer of your beauty cabinet.
Everything else should be sorted in a way that makes sense to you. For example, you may want to keep all travel minis together so they’re easy to grab before a weekend away. Keep an up-to-date list of what you’re running low on so that the next time you’re out and about, you can buy everything you need in one go rather than wasting time with lots of little trips.
Find products that multitask
Nowadays, there are plenty of products that do more than just one thing. As well as saving your precious time, they’ll save space on your bathroom shelf too! For example, our Rosehip Seed Oil a deeply nourishing moisturiser and it makes a great cuticle oil.
Stock up on minis
Most beauty brands produce mini versions of their top products, and they’re a complete life saver! Keep your favourites in your handbag or car for glowing skin and flawless makeup on the go - perfect for when you don’t have the luxury of getting ready at home.
Top tip: minis are also a great way of trying out new products without spending money on the full-size versions. Our Discovery Set has our three best selling products in miniature - perfect for travel, trial or as a gift for someone special.
Nail an easy look
The ‘no-makeup’ makeup look is one of the greatest weapons to have in your arsenal for when you’re running late but still want to look amazing. Practice using a choice few beauty products that are quick to apply and which make you look healthy and feel confident, but not so many that you look ‘made up’.
Along the same lines, establish a quick, easy hairstyle such as a messy bun or tousled waves which take a couple of minutes to do but look stylish. A top tip is to plait hair when damp so that it dries in loose waves with no effort!
