I remember in the first few months of first becoming a mom, I had days where it would be 2:00 pm and I would still be in my pajamas with my hair tied up in a ponytail and basically looking like a hot mess. But since then, I’ve learned that when I look good, I feel good and do good. I’ve had to come up with a few hacks here and there to help me on those days I need a shortcut, and I can’t wait to share my top 5 secrets with you!
Keep a travel makeup pouch with you My essentials consist of an eyelash curler (my lashes are stubbornly stick-straight otherwise!), mascara, and lipstick. I have my doubles of my favorites in my purse and in my car — because sometimes a red light is the only spare minute I have in the mornings!
Have makeup wipes and moisturizer at nursing station I learned this one the hard way as I’ve had a few nights of falling asleep with makeup still on while nursing my little ones. Now when it’s late and the baby cries, I’ll take some preventative action by wiping my face clean wipe and slathering on moisturizer while I’m feeding. It’s not a full routine, but it has saved me from a few nights of clogged pores!
Learn to love dry shampoo Washing, drying and styling hair takes time. With dry shampoo, I can style once and wear for at least 2-3 days with minor touchups. It’s a huge timesaver not to mention healthier for my hair too!
Have a go-to hairstyle for those greasy days Because sometimes even dry shampoo won’t cut it. I have an easy low chignon and headband look that I fall back on as the extra grease actually helps prevent any flyaways. It’s a simple yet still looks polished!
- Cut down getting-ready time I’ve also had to simplify my beauty routine. For the last few weeks, I’ve been trying out a new moisturizer and it’s made such a big difference not only in speeding up my shower time, but my skin has never felt better! JERGENS® Wet Skin Moisturizer is an innovative and new product that you apply directly after the shower while your skin is still wet. The formula binds oil to water, and my skin’s moisture is locked in! It takes half the time to apply yet provides twice as much moisture! And did I mention the scent? It comes in three flavors (coconut oil, monoi Oil, and green tea oil) and it’s like a tropical vacation in a bottle. I’m usually one who likes to linger in the shower but now, I’m actually looking forward to turning the water off just so I can slather on this lotion! Once I rub on the lotion, I can pat dry with my towel like normal and get dressed almost immediately as the product is instantly absorbed. No more waiting around and I like that I can be on my way already! Definitely give this moisturizer a try (save $2 now with this coupon — available first come, first serve) and let me know what you think!
