Busy mornings? Join the club!! As the multitasking women, we all have a full schedule of getting ready for work, getting kids ready to get out of the house and of course personal care, beauty and styling routine in the morning! How do you manage to accomplish all that and still look million bucks? Well, with some planning and some smart, made-to-work-for-you products, morning routines can me made simple, quick and efficient at the same time! Here are some of my tricks for making mornings smoother -
1. Get your outfit ready the night before - Thinking of what to wear in front of your closet when you really have to rush makes things delayed even more.
2. If you want the morning run, keep your running shoes NEXT to your bed - Believe me, wearing the running shoes and then brushing your teeth makes all the difference between 'I-am-out-for-a-run' and 'may-be-tomorrow'!
3. Use multitasking and time-saving beauty products - Think foundation with SPF, lip tint that can double duty as blush, moisturizers that you really don't have to pump 3 times before you can use (and then wait few minutes to put clothes on lest you ruin the silk!!) They say the longest two minutes in our life is when we are waiting in the shower for hair conditioner to work! For me, it is not the two minutes I wait for conditioner, but the time time I need to put lotion all over after the shower! Who is with me on that? I have heard from many of my friends too about skipping body moisturizing because they had to really rush in the morning! I mean we have hundreds other things to take care in the morning and waiting for sticky lotion to rub dry is the last thing we have to worry about! Thankfully, there are people and brands listening to us and developing products to make it really easy for us. One such product I have been using to make my life easier every morning is Vaseline Spray & Go moisturizer. (I have been using the cocoa radiant formula and LOVING it!) Just hold the bottle about 3-4 inches from your body, spray and rub lightly! The light mist-like formula quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving no sticky residue! The sleek bottle looks beautiful and packs easily in your gym bag for after workout shower! What will they think of next!!
