7 Surprisingly Easy Beauty Hacks For Busy Women

The new millennium celebrates working women who multitask and joggle different roles. If you find yourself always on the go, leaving little to zero time to pamper or even fix yourself, remember these seven beauty hacks that are fairly quick and easy.

#1. Trim Your Brows Regularly

Okay, let’s face it, you’re not exactly the girl who shapes her brows effortlessly, no matter how many times you watch tutorial videos. Lucky for you, there are beauty salons out there that offer brow trimming in a swift. Just book an appointment and voila, you have the perfect brows which would only need light filling during hectic mornings. A well-trimmed brow may not even require touch-ups at all. Remember, eyebrows are everything.

#2. Carry a Red Lipstick Anytime, Anywhere

Red lippies are classic. A bare face can instantly brighten up with red lips. Although some women prefer other colours, red is something the human species cannot resist, especially the males. It is a power colour and versatile enough to be worn at daytime or casual occasions.

#3. Lip Balm for Tired Eyes.

You can get crazy busy when work deadlines and children recitals collide. You may have downed espresso, shot after shot, yet your eyes do not lie. They may still look tired. Of course, wearing sunnies and eye makeup may conceal the weariness, but there is still one more trick you can do – apply balm on lower sides of your eyes’ outer edges. These areas are where your eyes meet your cheekbones. The balm, acting as a highlighter, gives you that sparkling, dewy, fresh feel; you may look like you’ve just woken up.

#4. Lip Tint and Cheek Tint in One

Putting on blush-on can get messy. Particles can spread everywhere. Plus, you may end up with a clown look if you apply too much. If you want a more natural pinkish glow, you can try using lip tint on your cheeks. Many busy women find this beauty trick a lifesaver, especially during unexpected meetings.

#5. Get a Quick Laser Facial.

You may only need a single layer of foundation if you already have a good skin. Make-up cannot cover up dry and patchy skin forever. So invest, invest, invest in skin treatments. A quick laser facial is a good start since it targets several skin problems at once, including wrinkles, saggy skin, sun spots, big pores, and so on. Just try to find a reliable clinic near you. Moreover, make sure to maintain a healthy skin after treatment by using a gentle face moisturizer as it helps in the healing process of the treated area.

#6. Conceal Whenever Necessary.

You never know when eye bags get darker, zits leave pimple marks, eyeliners smudge, or when unexpected bruises occur. You definitely need a concealer to cover up these unwanted sights. Carry a concealer with you everywhere, along with your lip tint.

#7. Never Run Out of Hair Knots.

You can get pretty sweaty and your hair messy throughout the day. That’s why it is always good to carry a hair clip or tie to avoid looking harassed when facing clients and executives. You can also carry with you a host of other tiny tools like nail clippers, hairpins and tweezers for grooming crisis situations.

There you have it, 7 beauty hacks that can save the day of a busy woman like you.

How to Safely Start Running

There is so much information out there about running – how to make the most of it, how to reach your fitness goals. You can even find out about what you should be wearing and when. But there is relatively little talk about the safety side of things. Safety is important; in fact, it is the paramount concern when you are out and about jogging in the streets or in the nearby fields. So many experienced joggers do not do everything they can to stay safe; sometimes the result of this can be disastrous. If you are a keen jogger, or you are about to start jogging, it might be worth to think about how to safely start running.

Partner Up

You don’t always have to run with someone else, of course, but it is sensible if you are concerned about your safety. This might be especially important if you live in a particularly rough area; where you might even risk being attacked by an unscrupulous stranger. However, even in safer areas it is wise to jog with someone you trust, even if only so there is someone there to help if you fall and badly injure yourself. This is particularly important if you frequently jog in more rural areas or out in the sticks. Being stuck in the middle of nowhere and breaking your ankle while on your own is no fun at all. It is much better if there is someone with you who can help you get back home… and probably to the hospital.

Go Easy

We all like to push ourselves a little; after all, that is kind of the whole point of jogging to get fit. But there’s pushing yourself and then there’s masochism; that is something you want to avoid if you can help it. If you take it too far, you will probably end up causing yourself more damage than good, and that kind of defeats the purpose of the exercise. There are a few concerns here – for a start, you need to look after your heart. Pushing too hard can cause serious heart problems, and before you know it you need to be shocked with Foremost AEDs. You also need to think about your hydration levels. Go too hard, and you might even cause yourself to faint. Be careful and only push yourself a little at a time.

Stay Alert

All in all, there are a number of things which might possibly cause you harm as you go jogging. In order to remain safe, you need to make sure you stay as alert as possible. A common concern is when joggers run with headphones in playing loud music. This can easily lead to accidents, especially if you run on pavements or have to cross roads. Make sure you stay alert, don’t block out any of your senses, and keep your wits about you. That way you can enjoy jogging for many more years to come still, and get even more out of every session.

Six Quick, Easy and Healthy Ways To Start The Day

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. We hear that a lot, right? But the reason that we hear that is because it really is. After around eight hours of not consuming anything, our body is ready for something to fill it and sustain it. The right kind of breakfast can set you up for the day and give you all of the energy that you need to keep you going. If you don’t eat the right things or don’t have anything at all, how are you expecting your body to be able to do its thing and to have an awake and alert mind?

If you feel like you’re always short on time in the morning, then here are some easy and healthy ways to start the day. Would love to know what your favorite breakfast food is too.

Crustless Quiche Lorraine – Ditch the pastry, and you’ve got a much healthier option of the classic. Keep the bacon and the eggs, as well as a sprinkling of cheese, and you’re good to go. You can make a large one ahead of time, and it will keep for the rest of the week in the fridge.

Chia Pudding – So good that it can be a dessert as well as a breakfast food. Chia seeds, along with your favorite milk and yogurt makes a great combination. Even greater is that you can make a batch ahead of time and leave overnight in the fridge. Serve in small mason jars with a lid, and you could even eat it on the go, topped with some berries or seeds.

Green Eggs and Ham – Dr. Suess was onto something, right? You could use some large slices of ham as a wrap, and fill them with some scrambled eggs. You could add in some pesto for the green, or wilt some spinach. The perfect low-carb and high protein breakfast if ever I saw one.

Bacon and Egg Cups – Line a muffin tray with rashers of bacon, and then crack an egg into each muffin hole. Sprinkle with some chives, mixed herbs or pepper. Then bake in the oven until the egg is cooked. They are great to just grab and a less messy way to eat bacon and eggs. Another protein filled breakfast.

Tea and Toast – Toast some whole wheat or rye bread and then mash up some avocado onto the toast. You could add some chopped cherry tomatoes too if you’d like. Serve with a matcha or ashitaba tea, and you’ve got a breakfast that is full of good stuff. It is nice and quick to make too.

Smoothie Bowl – If you don’t fancy drinking your smoothie, then it can be made a little thicker and consumed as a smoothie bowl. The good thing about this is that you can top it with nuts and seeds, to get extra goodness for the day ahead. Be sure to include things like spinach in your smoothie too. Don’t make it only out of fruit as it will make the fructose level quite high.
