Mom Beauty Hacks

Tricks for busy moms to feel beautiful, fast

Women are natural multi-taskers. This rings even more true once they give birth to another little human for whom they are completely responsible for, not just for a year, but for their entire lives. Now the question is, while trying to run a household, a business and taking care of children, how does a mom look and feel beautiful? Here are some beauty hacks for moms to get you started.
 
Treat While You Clean
If you have young children, especially toddlers, the task of cleaning is a constant effort! One amazing time saver is to do your skin and hair care treatments while you clean; not only is your house tidy, but you will be glowing! Finding the time to sit for 10 to 20 minutes and wait for a mask to do its thing isn’t always an option. Jump in the shower for a quick shampoo, apply a hair mask like JAFRA’s Moisture Replenish Hair Mask, and secure your hair. Next, apply a face mask, such as JAFRA’s Malibu Miracle Mask. After tidying up for 20 minutes, hop back in the shower for a fast rinse and voila! Healthy hair and radiant skin to go with your newly clean home.
 
Save Time with Natural Tresses
Becoming a busy mother creates an opportunity to embrace your natural beauty from time to time; especially your hair. If your old hair regimen consisted of time consuming steps like blow drying, curling or flat-ironing, try to let your hair live in its natural state. Look for products that can help your hair be its best, naturally. Try applying a detangler like JAFRA’s Hair Detangling Shine Spray and letting your locks air dry on the go. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results!
 
Double Duty Products
Products that do more than one function are a busy mom’s BFF! Look for products that not only perfect your skin, but protect them as well, such as JAFRA’s CC Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It primes, moisturizes, and minimizes imperfections all while protecting you from the sun’s harmful rays. If you love a good manicure, choose a quick drying nail polish, like JAFRA’s Rapid Dry Nail Lacquer.
 
Products That Go the Distance
Fast moving moms know that reapplying makeup or touching up chipped nails is a major time stealer. Instead, look for products that will get you through the day without having to worry about fading or wearing off. JAFRA’s Makeup Setting Spray, which is infused with natural antioxidants, will perk up your spirit with its revitalizing hydrators while setting your makeup for the day.
 
Gel manicures are great, but if you don’t have the time to go to a nail salon, try using an at-home gel-system, like JAFRA’s Beyond Brilliant Gel Nail Lacquer and Beyond Brilliant Gel UV Top Coat. Designed to create a gel manicure at home without a UV lamp, your nails will be able to withstand even the wildest toddler!
