It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to a close, and the fall and school season are fast approaching! That means busy mornings trying to get everyone out the front door on time and less time to go through your usual morning beauty routine. But just because you’re a busy mom doesn’t mean you have to cut corners to feel beautiful. Make looking great less of a chore with these time-saving beauty tips to help you look refreshed and radiant all day long.

Twice as nice
You’ve mastered the art of multitasking; why not use products that also do double duty? Use lip balm to smooth wayward brows or a peachy lipstick to double as a cream blush. Mascara isn’t just for lashes—wipe excess clear or light brown mascara off the wand with a tissue and brush softly through your eyebrows to groom or fill in sparse brows.

Hair tease
Forget about hiding your hair under a hat. Instead, try a chic headband to cover up your roots or hide the frizz, or slick your hair back into a ponytail to keep your hair off your face while still looking fresh. If you don’t have time to shampoo in the morning, use a dry shampoo, an invention we think was made specially for busy moms! Simply spray or sprinkle the formula on your roots, massage it around, and you’re good to go—it absorbs the oil in your hair instantly.

Caffeine perk
Sometimes a boost of caffeine is all we need to get our day started. And not just in our coffee mugs! For those bags under your eyes, freshen up with ELASTIderm® Eye Serum—formulated with the boosting power of caffeine, this cool, refreshing eye serum helps reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness to perk up tired eyes.

We know parenting isn’t a Monday through Friday job, but when Saturday rolls around, be sure to take some time for yourself to relax and rejuvenate. A quick nap or a mani/pedi may be just what you need to feel good. Because moms, you deserve it!
