The truth is that women have to fill big shoes these days. We’re business professional, mothers, housekeepers, and cooks and still expected to have social lives with friends while juggling it all. It’s hard to find enough time to relax, enjoy hobbies, and spend time with those you love.
What it really comes down to is finding little ways to save time. Every day, finding a few minutes here and there can really add up to some valuable time you can spending doing what you love.
We’re all looking for ways to get more out of every day and they are looking for products that offer convenience and time-saving solutions. So I’ve partnered with AVEENO® to share a some of my favorite beauty tips to help me regain an hour back into my day.
1. Use Multitasking Products Whenever Possible
Consolidate your skin care products. That 9 step Korean skincare routine sounds great, but honestly who has time for time for that? A one step BB cream that’s a moisturizer, sunscreen and light foundation, now that’s the way to go. A moisturizing body wash is another one is another great time saver too, moisturizing your body is important and more often or not it gets forgotten about when we’re looking to just hop in and out of the shower as fast as possible.
2. In Shower Facial
Don’t have time to pamper yourself? Well with the AVEENO® Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial, it only requires 60 seconds and can apply this to your face while washing your hair. It saves both time and money, double bonus! Formulated with hydrating soy and lemon peel extract that works together with the steam of your shower to open up your pores and deeply, yet gently, exfoliate all your dead skin cells, dirt and oil to reveal glowing, healthy looking skin. It’s part of the Positively Radiant collection, which is specially formulated to target 5 Factors of Radiance® – tone, texture, dullness, blotchiness, and brown spots. It’s safe enough to use a few times a week for visibly brighter, more radiant and velvety soft skin.
3. Overnight Facial
Another time saving product from AVEENO® is the Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial. It provides the benefits of a facial, while you snooze. Made with Active Naturals Total Soy Complex, the formula works through the night to deeply hydrate and nourish skin, which means when you get up in the morning, you’ll feel rejuvenated since your skin will feel ultra soft, revived and supple.
4. Dry Shampoo
Washing your hair daily is not only time consuming, but damaging to your hair. The trick to dry shampoo is applying it when your hair is clean, yes, that’s right. Apply dry shampoo at your roots and massage throughout your just-cleaned and dried hair. The product does triple duty, boosting volume and adding texture so you can forgo the extra styling products. Fine hair will get a lift, and your hair will stay fresh longer.
5. Blow Dry Your Hair Faster
Gently blot and squeeze moisture from wet hair with a microfiber towel before you dry. I swear this tip cuts my blow dry time in half. Microfiber towels are able to draw water away from hair better than your standard bath towel. Not only do you spend less time blow-drying, you minimize your hair’s exposure to heat, avoiding heat damage and split-ends.
