Thanks for bearing with a few off topic posts. Now back to basics! I mean literally! Many women today are career oriented and do not have much time to muss and fuss over their appearance. They need to get beautiful and out the door quickly.
Here are a few beauty essential tips that will make your morning routine smoother and enjoyable! 🙂
Does your hair have trouble holding a curl? Here’s a great simple recipe for a no-fail hair set gel that is easy and all natural!
- ¾ cup water
- 1 tablespoon flax-seed
Combine the water and flax seeds in a small pan, bring to a boil. Simmer on low heat until the mixture is gelatinous (about 10 to 15 minutes). Strain out as many seeds as you can. Dip a comb into the gel, and comb through the hair before setting with curlers or pins.
Tip 2: Shower or bathe right before bed the night before. Use an all natural moisturizing soap with shea butter, follow-up with a great body oil. You’ll still feel fresh in the morning and your skin will be soft and hydrated.
Tip 3: Stretch and breathe in the morning. Take time to organize your thoughts. With your main beauty steps finished the night before, you will have more time to relax and get yourself together in the mornings. Prepare a simple but balanced breakfast for yourself that contains protein. Getting a good start is important.
Tip 4: Use a natural mineral make-up for a natural glow, set the mineral make-up with a spritz of rose water. Add jojoba oil or natural tinted lip gloss on your lips, finish with a little mascara and you’re good to go! Keeping your look simple and natural is always best. It lets your natural beauty shine through 🙂
Tip 5: Start the day with an attitude of gratitude. No matter what the day brings, always be thankful for what you have. A content and cheerful person is always more attractive and beautiful inside and out 🙂
