5 Essential Beauty Tips for Busy Mums


1.    Treat yourself to a new hair cut

Book in with a great stylist who can help you get a new, easy to style look. A good haircut can dramatically reduce the amount of time it takes to get ready in the morning as well as making it easier to maintain throughout the day. Simply by cutting a few inches or adding some extra layers, it could help your hair to dry naturally and therefore save you some much needed time.


2.    Moisturise and exfoliate

One of the simplest and quickest ways to keep your skin looking radiant is to moisturise and exfoliate regularly. This simple addition to your routine will add around 30 seconds to your morning, and is guaranteed to help your skin look healthy and re-vitalised.


3.    Dry shampoo is a must

Sometimes you just don’t have time to wash and dry your hair after a busy day. For a solution in seconds, try dry shampoo.  Perfect for giving your hair a new lease of life and freshness on the go, simply spray a small amount onto your roots and rub in for some instant oomph. It’s definitely a product to add to your next shopping list.


4.    Invest in a quality foundation

Put aside just a few minutes for a flawless complexion and invest in a high quality foundation and concealer that you can quickly apply on the go. Mineral foundation is ideal for full coverage and a natural look during the day, while a creamy concealer is sure to disguise any dark circles and imperfections.


5.    Long lasting nails

Finding the time to sit down, file and paint your nails without any distractions can be difficult. Schedule an hour out of your busy month to treat yourself to a manicure, and it will save you time in the long run. Treatments such as GELeration will provide you with a long lasting, high gloss shine to your nails for 2-3 weeks and with such a wide variety of colours available, you can have some fun experimenting!
