Everyone is busy today, and it is often difficult to find the time to beautify yourself. With all the obligations women face in this day and age, it can be difficult to leave the house with your clothes on frontward, much less take time for a comprehensive beauty regimen. Fortunately, it really does not take a great deal of time to be your most beautiful self. Consistency and simple, high quality products can go a long way toward saving time and producing excellent results. Read on to learn how you can get the most beauty with the least investment of time.
Be sure to keep your skin clean. Well cared for skin is always more beautiful. Remember to use proper cleansing products when you take your morning shower. Rather than washing your face with bath soap, keep a jar of your favorite cleansing cream or scrub handy to use in the shower. If you shower in the evening, and your skin is not oily, you may be able to get by with just freshening your face with an astringent or toner and applying a light moisturizer in the morning.
It is important to choose the right moisturizer for your skin type. Very oily skin still needs moisture, but it is best to choose a product that contains little or no oil. Aloe vera gel is a good choice. For drier skin, you may need something a little heavier. Simply adding a drop or two of natural oil to aloe vera gel is often a good solution. Whatever you choose to use as a daytime moisturizer, be sure it is quickly and easily absorbed into your skin so that you will not be standing around waiting for your face to dry when you are in a hurry.
Get a really good haircut that makes the most of the quality and texture of your hair. This can save you a lot of time in hair styling. Ideally, you should be able to just brush and go without a lot of styling. If you have longer hair, you can make morning styling easier by remembering to put your hair in a loose braid while you sleep. In this way, it will not be so tangled in the morning.
Keep a collection of cute hats and scarves on hand to cover your hair on the inevitable occasions when it refuses to behave properly. If you have the presence and bearing to support them, wigs are a nice solution for recalcitrant hair, but not everyone can pull this off. If your hair is long enough, you can wear it in a bun or other upswept style to get it under control and conceal its misbehavior.
If you suddenly find that your hair is oily and you do not have time to wash it, there are two things you can do. You can either use a dry shampoo or cornstarch to remove the oiliness. To use a dry shampoo, follow package directions. To use cornstarch, sprinkle it on your head lightly, just over the oily parts. You probably do not need to powder your entire head. Pat it in gently and let it sit for about five minutes. Brush your hair vigorously with a natural bristle brush to remove it. Your hair will be oil free and clean.
