Working moms are downright superheroes and they deserve all the praise of this world. But unfortunately, instead of getting praise and assistance, they’re expected to not only take care of their children and their career but also look amazing doing it.
Moms usually think about themselves last. They take care of everyone else and if there are a few minutes left over during the day, then they indulge in something they like. There is a myth that women take care of their appearance because of how other people perceive them, but this is far from the truth. In reality, taking time to take care of your body and give yourself the chance to look the way you want to look will give you some precious “me time” and allow you to feel confident and ready to face any challenge. So let’s see how we can make that process easier while still giving you what you need.
Nobody likes getting sick, but if a mom gets sick, some of the crucial daily routines around the house just shut down. Signs of illness can often manifest on our appearance, including dry skin, dark circles, brittle hair and nails and similar symptoms. You should never ignore and cover these up, but rather visit a doctor and see what you can do from the inside. Maybe you can save some precious minutes on applying hair moisturizer every morning by simply changing your diet and making sure you’re getting a nutritious enough combination to make your hair naturally strong and shiny. This can apply to nearly every part of your body, and it’s important to regularly go to check-ups and not ignore the signs that your body is giving you.
Do you ever wish that you could spend one whole weekend just making dinner and never having to make it again? Solutions like these are rarely available, which gives us all the more reason to use the ones we have. A lot of moms in Australia are opting for medical laser hair removal in Perth to get rid of leg or armpit hair for good. It saves so much time in the shower and eliminates embarrassing situations when you realize you’ve missed a patch in the middle of a meeting. You can also find long-term-but-not-forever solutions around, like applying gel polish to your nails, microblading your eyebrows or putting in a weave.
Nobody wants to struggle in the morning thinking about what kind of makeup would go well with that day’s look. Find and absolutely perfect a daily routine that you can put on in less than five minutes and be ready to head out the door. The most important things are: foundation or concealer, mascara, lipstick, eyebrows and blush. If you have more time, you can add more things, but remember that if you’re crunched for time, you should skip makeup rather than skincare. You can also have a little travel makeup bag in your everyday bag to make sure you can touch up or add something during the day. The more minimal your daily routine, the easier it will be for you to get ready.
If you didn’t wash your hair the night before and you’re running late in the morning, you know you’re going to spend the whole day just thinking about how bad your hair looks. Think ahead and always plan whether you have time to wash it in the morning, if it can go another day with the help of some dry shampoo or if you have the chance to put it in a bun or ponytail that will make it look brand new. If you’re really out of time and your hair looks helpless, mix some volume powder with regular baby powder and rub it on your roots. Brush out, fluff up and pin it back – you’ll get through the day.
Remember that looking good isn’t an important part of being a good mom, nor a good woman, but it can help you feel your best and give you the motivation and energy to do the things that you want to do. Beauty is a powerful tool and every woman wields it, so learn how to use it well.
