You may be proud of your ability to multitask, but when it comes to beauty and skincare, things tend to go down the spiral if you’re a busy woman with goals. If that sounds like you, well, this one may help you out. Give this a quick read and discover some simple and actionable tips and tricks to take your skincare and beauty regulars up a notch without spending minutes (which feel like hours)! Read on…
Coconut Oil to the Rescue
From working as a makeup remover to doubling up as a moisturizer- coconut oil does a lot. Infact, it is one of the favorites of natural living enthusiasts, and is used for everything from oil pulling to coconut oil detox. Simply massage your skin (on the face and/or the body) with pure coconut oil every night before sleeping for soft, hydrated and visibly brighter skin.
Still having trouble getting the winged liner right? Use clear tape or an old card and hold it in the slant position under your eyes and use it as a guide- quick and no mess at all!
Peppermint Oil for the Plump
How about a natural oil that gives your lips that extra oomph factor? Massaging some peppermint oil onto your lips can help boost circulation and give it an instant plump feel; not to mention it’ll also keep your lips hydrated and supple.
Pretty Feet Things
Your feet take the maximum impact, and are probably the least cared for when it comes to your beauty and skincare routines (if you follow one that is!). If you don’t have the time to treat yourself to an occasional pedicure, make sure you apply some moisturizing lotion or cream and wear socks before you go off to bed.
Quick Scrub+Tan Removal
Scrubbing and exfoliation occasionally can help remove tan, visibly brighten the skin and improve circulation and overall skin health too. A simple mixture of honey, lemon juice and baking soda, used as a face scrub weekly or biweekly can work wonders!
Instant Skin Soother
Forget those fancy creams and lotions and go old school with plain aloe vera gel straight from the leaf for everything from breakouts and acne to skin irritation and sunburns. Aloe vera gel hydrates and soothes the skin, making it soft and supple.
Implementing these quick and easy beauty and skincare hacks can work wonders and keep you looking your best even when you’re in the midst of a super busy week.
