Mum's the word: ready on the run
From the school run to the supermarket and then back home to spring clean – being a mum leaves little time for grooming. And when I say ‘grooming’ I don’t mean an hour spent tonging your tresses or time spent applying a face mask, tweezing your brows and tending to stray hairs - I just mean having enough time to run a brush through your mane before you rush out the front door!
Being a mum means being on the run, so I’ve discovered that the only way to look half decent is to select time-saving products that can be spritzed, sprayed, slathered and rubbed while rushing from one job to the next.
Take Dr. Spiller Body Oil Spray for example. I don’t have the time to waste minutes massaging a thick moisturiser all over my body, but I do suffer from dry skin and need something quick and easy with a nourishing formula. A spray oil that is non-greasy, nourishing and sinks straight in means you can fast-track from the shower to the front door without neglecting your skin or having to suffer from scaly legs.
And from one mum to another – make bedtime your best friend by taking advantage of products that work best overnight. Transform parched hair into sleek strands with Redken 5th Avenue NYC Real Control Overnight Treat. The nourishing formula works its magic while you sleep, leaving locks soft and restored come morning.
Dr. LeWinn’s Instant Beauty Radiance Booster is also my new BFF. Just like a woman this product is a multi-tasking maverick! You can pop it on under your make-up for a velvet finish or apply before bed and allow it to revitalise your skin while you’re counting sheep. Even if uninterrupted sleep is just a pre-offspring memory it won’t show, trust me!
See, so busy mums can look groomed – even if you do feel like you’re about to collapse from exhaustion and lack of sleep!
