Beauty Hack #1: Supplement SmartlyListen, just because you’re running a little late doesn’t mean your wellness should take a backseat. Simplify your morning routine with pre-packaged targeted nutritional supplements formulated to support and address your key health concerns. You can also create your own “pre-packaged” supplements by using a pillbox organizer to group together pills by day and time (e.g. morning and evening). Avoid the hassle of combing through multiple pill bottles with this simple time-saving trick, or opt for supplementing on the go with powder supplements such as Super Berry with Acai or Super Greens. Just open a packet, pour into a bottle of water and be on your way.
Beauty Hack #2: Skip the Blow DryWhile you may have enough time to fit in a quick shampoo even if you hit the snooze button a few too many times, chances are good that you’ll have to skip the blow dry (on the bright side, both your hair and your watch will thank you). Use a microfiber towel after showering to draw water out of your strands, and add a little extra body by twisting your hair into a loose bun. Leave it while you run through the rest of your morning routine, take it down right before you head out the door and, voila, say hello to natural-looking waves with practically zero effort. If you do have time to pull out the hairdryer, save it for the end—you’ll significantly cut down on the time needed to blow dry since your hair will likely be close to dry already. Of course, if you’re really running behind, skip the shower and reach for the dry shampoo (your secret's safe with us).
Beauty Hack #3: Have a (Skincare) Cocktail
No, no, we’re not talking about THAT kind of cocktail (sorry)—we’re talking about a cocktail of the skincare variety. When you’re running late, the key to getting out the door is to multitask, multitask, and then multitask some more. Look for products you can “cocktail” (or combine) for one quick and easy application that delivers multiple benefits at once. Some of our favorite combinations include:
- Vitamin C Ester Serum with Face Finishing Moisturizer, which helps brighten and heal skin while creating a beautiful canvas for makeup in one simple application.
- No Makeup Highlighter with just about anything for a little extra youthful glow, but especially Face Finishing Moisturizer or Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint for an all-over dewy glow, or Hyaluronic Intensive Moisturizer for a more youthful glow.
