Some might believe that they will not have time for themselves once they have kids. Sure, children take up some of your time, and you may not be able to dedicate much time to yourself, but you should take this as a challenge. Beauty can still be achieved as long as mothers are willing to change things up a bit and adjust to their new lifestyles.
The following are a few self-beautification tips that you can do in a few minutes during the morning rush hour when your kids are getting ready for their day.
Hacks to Enhance the Face
There are plenty of moms out there who simply do not want to take the time to worry about taking care of themselves.
It takes time to readjust your life now that you have kids, but taking care of yourself actually makes you a happier mom, and your family is going to appreciate that.
The following are a few makeup tips that can help you look your best that will not take too long:
One thing you can do when you wake up is to make sure you freshen up your face by cleaning it. You can use a bentonite clay mask that you can put on your face while you do other things you have to take care of.
The paste is thick enough to stick to your face, and you do not have to do anything with the mask for at least 15 minutes before removing it. The mask should revitalize your skin and make you look stunning even without makeup. Make sure you splash your face with a little cold water to close up pores when you are done.
Less is More
You probably do not have time to put on makeup as you once did, but consider this a blessing in disguise. What you can do is focus on the area of your face that needs the most help.
For example, those who have small lips may want to focus on highlighting your lips to accentuate them. If you have weak cheekbones, you may want to concentrate on making these areas pop a bit more. You get to save a lot of time by focusing on one area, and you still end up looking great.
Quick Hair Tricks
Face it, your hair requires some work, and you do not have the time anymore. Do not fret, there are a few tricks that can help you look great without doing all the grunt work. The following are a few tips to consider:
Ready to Go
Mothers should definitely consider the idea of braiding their hair or even going so far as rocking some dreadlocks because it is a style that you do not have to work on much once it is done. Dreadlocks are there for life, and you can keep braids looking great for a couple of days.
Move and Dry
Those who are tired of using a dry shampoo but still want their hair to have that volume you’re used to seeing should invest in a good hair drying machine. Make sure the machine is mommy-friendly, meaning that it is light enough for you to move around with since you only have a few minutes to dry your hair as you help everyone get their day started.
Scarf it Up
Be sure to consider using a scarf instead of dealing with your hair in the mornings, especially when you don’t have the time to deal with it. You hardly have to style your hair with a scarf, and these pieces of cloth can look quite chic. Be sure to have a number of styles at home because you never know when you might need one.
As you can see, you can still take care of yourself even if you only have a few minutes to do so in the morning. Mommies do not have to let themselves go but rather simply re-invent beauty regiments, and you can do that.
