Busy Mom Beauty TipsThese time-saving beauty tips will keep you looking pulled-together.

EXFOLIATING FACE WASH Cleanse, tone, exfoliate and combat wrinkles all in one fell swoop—what more could you ask for? My skin is squeaky clean and has a healthy, radiant glow thanks to free radical fighting antioxidants. For an all-in-one cleanser, try Wrinkle Revenge antioxidant enhanced glycolic acid facial cleansers.

BODY OIL I seriously cannot shower without it.  The second I turn off the water I slather myself head-to-toe with body oil, then I towel off.  The light oil soaks into my skin leaving it so silky soft and supremely hydrated, moisturizer becomes an option, not a requirement.

BRONZER A very famous makeup artist/CEO once told me that if you only had time to use two makeup products before running out the door they should be bronzer and an eyelash curler.  That stuck with me and to this day can attest that a big fluffy brush and a universally flattering bronzing powder come in very handy when you need a quick, healthy glow on the go.

EYELASH CURLER When I have zero time and eye makeup is simply not an option, a 5-second squeeze with a high quality eyelash curler makes me look like I got way more sleep than I actually did. If you don’t believe me, next time you curl your lashes stop after curling the first eye and look in the mirror to compare.

DRY SHAMPOO My hair is annoyingly fine and gets greasy if I don’t wash it often. But with a 4 year old and 4 month old in the mix, daily shampooing is not always an option. Dry-shampoo is my go-to style saver: Not only does it mop up grease—instantly extending the life of my blowdry—it also perks up my lifeless roots with a much needed burst of volume.  Tip: If using an aerosol, spray hair before going to bed. This gives the product ample time to absorb excess oils while you sleep. For powder versions, put a small amount into your palm, rub it around between your hands and run your fingers through your hair. Gently massaging your scalp will help the product get absorbed by your roots.

FLAT IRON Plug it in before you hop in the shower—donning a shower cap of course—so it is ready when you are. When I am really in a rush I put my hair into a ponytail and run the flat iron through the whole thing.  A few slow passes and violà, straight hair in seconds.
