Quick beauty fixes: getting beautiful in no time

Time is one of our most precious belongings that, due to our jobs, families and households, can sometimes be rare. Besides their duties and obligations, women don't always find time for an extensive beauty routine. The good news is that there are some quick beauty fixes, making us beautiful in no time.

Another type of coffee break

Uh-oh… A remote and an empty bag of chips tell us what has happened on the couch the night before… Crime movies can be very compelling! However, when you look into the mirror, the short night and salty snacks have left their marks: a tired complexion, one or another pimple and swollen eyes look at us. It’s about time to take action! Instead of a cup of coffee, our eyes first get another special caffeine kick: as an ingredient in eye creams it drains the tissue, supports the liquid removal, tightens the blood vessels under the skin and hence, diminishes pouches. Tip: when being stored in the fridge, the extra-cooling effect makes our eyes bright even faster!

Saving time under the shower

No matter how tight your schedule may be, body care should never be neglected, even though it can become an additional source of stress. Great that we can get several things done under the shower! A facial mask during the shower can do wonders for stressed skin. If it’s been a bit longer since the last full shave and a bit of stubble comes out, shower gel can be used as a shaving gel too. Extra tip: conditioner and hair masks are well suited for fast shaving. They make our skin soft and facilitate the hair removal.
You don’t even have to leave the shower if you want to put on some lotion. In-shower body lotions are applied while still being under the shower and showered off afterwards: no exposure time, just softly groomed skin.

No hairy affair

Bad hair days often occur when time is scarce anyway. As we don’t want to waive hair care and styling, dry shampoos or blow dry sprays are great time savers!

Complexion tuning

Primer, makeup, powder, bronzer and highlighter are often benched at a push. BB, CC or DD creams now get their chances and give our skin a naturally beautiful and flawless complexion. Since they combine care and makeup, they additionally nourish the tissue with goodness, and have protecting and moisturizing traits. Any signs of a short night, a long sunbath and other blemishes are concealed in no time and the skin appears evenly fair.

Last minute makeup

Those who still have some time left can also use lipstick to accentuate the cheeks besides applying it to the lips. This freshens up the look and can even be done on the go. Don’t forget to put on mascara and you’re ready to go!

Nightly cleaning squad

Cleansing milk, eye makeup remover, peeling: after an exhausting day of work, facial cleansing should not take too much of our time, either. For a visibly relaxing sleep, the night care can be mixed with a bit of self-tanning lotion in order to have radiant skin the next day. Have a good sunny day!
