Whether you have a full-time job or you’re a stay at home mom, it can seem impossible to find any time to yourself. So the next time you find yourself with 60 minutes that aren’t dedicated to work, cooking meals, or pick-ups and drop-offs, use them for yourself!
Try these simple at-home beauty tips to pamper yourself!
Let Off Some Steam!
After washing your face, boil a pot of water to make your own personal “steam room.” Create a tent with a towel and sit over the pot for about 5 minutes. This will open up your pores so your facemask can soak in better.
Make Yourself a Facial
No need to waste any of your precious time driving to the drugstore to find a facemask. Check your fridge! You can make all of these facemasks with common household food items.
To maintain healthy skin, studies suggest you should moisturize your entire body at least every other day. But for moms who barely have two minutes to shower, spending an extra five to put on lotion is not an option. While you’re letting your facemask soak in, put on some soothing lotion!
DIY Mani + Pedi
After you’ve washed off your facemask, plop down in front of the TV, and find one of your guilty pleasures that’s been taunting you on your DVR for the last few months, and get to work on your nails! If you’re not the greatest manicurist in the world, don’t stress. Here are some at home beauty tips for the perfect DIY mani/pedi. Or you can try just doing either the mani or the pedi. While they air dry, sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of your show!
