You know, most people have it wrong about us lazy girls. Contrary to popular belief, we’re all for looking good, it’s just that we’re advocates for maximum returns from minimal input. Is that too much to ask?
Well lazy girl, it’s time to show them who’s boss. If you favour speed and simplicity over primping and preening, you’ll feel us with these five smart shortcut solutions. Because yes, it is possible to look like a stone-cold fox with minimal effort.
LGs, your beauty cheat sheet awaits!
DRY SHAMPOO FOR LIFE
Washing your hair is not conducive to sleeping in. And in winter? Noooo thank you! Dry shampoo is the easiest way to get another day between washes, and if you’re really savvy, spritz it in your locks at night before bed. Because those extra seven seconds in the morning matter.
SKIN CARE ROUTINE = WIPE AND GO
Cleanse, tone and moisturise? That sounds loooong. Cut that time in half and reap the same rewards with cleansing wipes. They’re handy for space-saving travellers, too.

CURLS GO IN THE TOO-HARD BASKET
The result is just a few waves in the front and we’re over it. The arm ache is just not worth it. Natural hair for the win! Jazz it up just a little with a sea salt or texturising spray if you’re feelin’ fancy. That’s the LG motto.

BROW GROOMING? PLEASE…

MAKE-UP IS FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS
Going through the pain of this every day is just too much for one woman to handle. You need a quick go-to routine for work, plus when you do put in the time and effort, the transformation is so much more rewarding.
