A lot of us are busy with work and family that we do not have the luxury of time to spend on ourselves. If you are a part of this bandwagon, then you would want to get things done quickly without jeopardizing the results. Among the things that we struggle to do if we lack time is our beauty routine. Some people take a long while to do their hair and makeup and if you are someone who is in a hurry, you might want to maximize the time you have for a beauty routine and make the most out of it.
Learn to Organize
A messy vanity table will just make you spend a lot of your time looking for things you need. The key to cutting down the time spent on your beauty routine is organizing your table. You may do a general clean-up day once a week and at the end of the day, devote a few minutes of your time to fix the mess you have created in the morning. Group your products according to their use. Place your face brushes in one jar, your eye brushes in another jar, eye makeup in one container, and lip products in another. By doing this, you will not have a hard time looking for a certain product you would want to use anymore.
Use products that are multi-purpose
If you have less than 5 minutes for a makeup routine but you still want to look decent, get a multi-purpose product like a tint that can be used as a lip stain, blush, and an eye shadow all in one. You may also take this with you and use it on the go if you really are in a hurry.
Create your own routine
Apply your skin care products and makeup in the same order every single day and you will be creating a solid routine. By having a routine, your body will get used to doing it hence, you will be able to perform it effortlessly and quickly.
Only use what you need
We usually get overwhelmed with hair products when it comes to styling our hair. But, you need to remember that more products will just mean more time. If you have limited time, skip on some of the products that you do not even need. Chances are from the six that you are currently using, you will be left with a couple or three. See how much time you will be able to save if you do that.
Some people love washing their face because it makes them feel more refreshed. Washing your face three or more times per day will not only cost you a lot of your time but it will also have an effect on your skin. Experts say washing your face twice a day, once in the morning and once before you go to bed is the healthy (and time saving) way to do it.
Skip the Blow dry
Do you really need to blow dry your hair every single day? If you do not have a lot of time you can always skip this and air dry your hair instead. Besides, blow drying and heat styling can damage your hair so save it for special occasions instead.
If ever you already have a beauty routine but it takes too long, re-evaluating it will help a lot. You may find some steps unnecessary and once you omit them, you get to save time. Always remember, you need not to spend an hour or more to look good.
