Grooming Tips for Busy Mornings
Using Oil to MoisturiseApply a bit of oil on your face while you do your chores. Let it absorb well before your bath. Your skin will feel much smoother and softer after the bath. I used to use Olive and Coconut earlier but have now tried Almond and Sesame too. I like Olive Oil and Almond Oil the best for this purpose. Have tried Vitamin E Oil as well but that is too heavy for my oily skin. You can choose one that suits your skin type the best :)
Substitute Chemical Face Wash for Natural Homemade OnesKeep a small pot of gram flour / besan in your bathroom and use it instead of a face wash. This one is courtesy Ik from Makeup Monologues. This tip came as a blessing to my pigmented, patchy, ignored skin. A very easy way to give it some TLC is slap on kitchen goodies. Readymade packs and facewashes are good but there is a reason Besan Uptan is a classic beauty fix known in all kitchens :)
Tame that ManeGet an easy to maintain hairstyle. Be it messy layers or permanent straightening. Something that is easy to style on the run. I have cut my hair really short now and realised that it does make things easy to have a style that allows you to wash and go!
Get Your Skin Care and Makeup OrganisedKeep your skin care and makeup stash well organised. Trust me, you do not want to spend time looking for your moisturiser, perfume or hair serum when you have those ten minutes to get ready. I am truly guilty of not doing this and hunting frantically for that lipstick and that liner I fancy on a particular day!!!
Plan Outfits in Advance
Inspite of all these, I am still seen rushing out of the house on all mornings. So, what are your time saving tips???
From my now dead makeup blog Novice Makeup. I miss beauty blogging and hence re-posting an old post here. Been toying with the idea of restarting it!
