Your morning beauty routine doesn’t belong on your list of chores. Here’s how to make it fun again!

The trick is knowing what to highlight and focus on so you can save time and energy which could be used for other things like getting your kids ready for school or sneaking in a bit of chores or having breakfast—-sitting down.

Take care of your skin first!

No matter what anyone says, skin isn’t what you “cover up” with makeup; it’s what you enhance!

Keep your skin looking fresh with little to no sleep using these tips:

Tip 1: Keep skincare products like cleansing wipes, toner and your nighttime moisturiser on your nightstand so you are constantly reminded to use them! No excuses.

Tip 2: For breastfeeding mums, use moisturiser with SPF to lessen dark spots or hyper pigmentation! This is a good alternative to Retinol

Tip 3: Don’t get your upper lip waxed because it may cause inflammatory hyper pigmentation. It’s best to stick to plucking

Tip 4: Keep face blotters handy. When you’re busy, it’s easy for your skin to get dehydrated; this causes excess oil. So, having oil-absorbent little face sheets at all times helps rid your skin of oil. Plus: it also fights breakouts!
