Beauty + Fashion

If you’re a busy lady who’s always in a rush – especially in the morning, before work – you should definitely stay with us and keep on reading. Here are five useful tips on how to minimise your beauty routine and save some time, so check them out and give them a try ASAP!

Skip the morning shower

A lot of women love to take a shower and wash their hair every single morning, but you know what? You should skip this step simply because hair washing, drying, and styling require a lot of time you probably don’t even have, so stay away from your shower and you’ll do the right thing. However, if your hair seems a bit greasy when you wake up, all you need to do is to apply some mousse to your scalp and you’ll solve a problem in the blink of an eye. On the other hand, if mousse isn’t really your thing, you can use a dry shampoo instead. Just make sure to apply it properly, so that you aren’t left with white powder streaks!

Prep your skin the night before

Cleansing your face is an absolute must before going to bed for two important reasons. First of all, because removing makeup and getting rid of dirt, grime, and excess oils will unclog your pores and minimise oxidative damage, which will keep breakouts at bay. Apart from that, an intricate bedtime routine means that you won’t need much more than water and a gentle cleanser in the morning, which is a fantastic way to sleep a bit longer and save some time. This is exactly why you should step up your bedtime routine and use a range of products that include a cleanser, toner, scrub (not more than twice a week), and a hydrating moisturizer. Your skin will be more than grateful!


Use skincare products that contain antioxidants

In case you weren’t aware of it, the fact is that powerful antioxidants such as vitamins C and E can protect your skin from free radicals that speed up the process of ageing, which occurs when you encounter pollution, UV rays, and other environmental skin stressors throughout the day. Antioxidants also can help your sunscreen work better and contribute to a gorgeous glow if you start using them every day, which is why you should incorporate them into your daily skincare routine. Some of the best natural skincare brands offer skincare products such as toners that contain antioxidants, so don’t wait any longer and get them right now. Trust us when we say that you’ll see a huge difference shortly!

Opt for a tinted moisturiser instead of a foundation

Speaking of your makeup, you should stick to the ‘less is more’ rule – especially if you want to simplify your morning beauty routine. The first step you should take is to switch from a full-coverage foundation to a tinted moisturiser. Truth be told, a lot of foundations are too thick and heavy, which means that they won’t allow your skin to breathe underneath them. Besides that, these are highly likely to clog your pores in combination with dirt and sweat, which is why you should ditch them as soon as possible. Instead, go for a lightweight tinted moisturizer that will nourish your skin while providing enough coverage at the same time. This is a fantastic multi-use product you should definitely have in your makeup bag!

Use products that multitask

When it comes to products that can be used for multiple purposes, we have to say that these are absolutely essential if you want to speed up your morning beauty routine. Apart from saving you time and space, these will also save you a lot of money, which is a benefit that shouldn’t be overlooked. For example, you can use the same matte eye shadow to fill in your brows, as an eyeliner with an angle brush, and as an eye shadow with a fluffy blending brush. On the other hand, lip products can double up as a creamy blush that gives your face a nice and healthy glow. Just be creative, think out of the box and you’ll be more than fine!


Minimising your morning beauty routine doesn’t have to be as tricky as you probably thought – as long as you know what you’re doing, of course. In order to make that happen, all you have to do is to stick to our tips and we’re sure that you’ll do a great job!
