Being a busy mom or dad isn’t always a role that allows for a lot of time to devote to looking incredibly fancy. Sometimes the only thing that you have time to do in the morning is to throw on a shirt and brush your teeth. The last thing on your mind is matching your clothing or running a comb through your hair. Especially if you’re the only one getting your kids ready in the mornings.
When you’ve got to worry about your kids getting ready and there are several of them, then you may find your head spinning just to make sure that you make it out the door in time. However, even though you may be pressed for time, it’s important to take time every day even if only in the span of 10 minutes that you have to make sure that you cover the essentials.
When it comes to quick and simple grooming that will make a huge difference, here are some of the best things that you can do for yourself in the mornings.
Take Care Of Your Face
As a dad, there’s something about a scruffy face that screams “I didn’t get enough sleep last night.” Reaching for your clippers or razor and trimming things up or clean shaving can really make a world of difference as far as looking tired or not.
Try to do a quick shave or trim every morning. If you master the speed, you’ll eventually be able to do it in under 3 minutes or less.
For those tired moms out there, you may want to think about hair removal rather than shaving if you find yourself with a scruffy face. A few layers of makeup under the eyes and lipstick does the trick for tiredness as well.
Reach For The Hair Product
Taking a little bit of pomade and applying it to your hair for volume can completely transform your look. While hairspray can be a little messy, and gel can sometimes look outdated, pomade is able to make your hair look texturized and voluminous without overdoing it.
Simply take a dime sized amount between your fingers and rub in your hands. Apply to your head starting from the back moving forward. You’ll find that you look much more put together from this small and simple step.
Unfortunately, some people don’t realize how important sunscreen is every day. Even when the sky is overcast you may find that your skin is susceptible to harming rays which can age your face and even lead to cancer.
Apply a bit of sunscreen every morning as part of your self-care regimen. Your face will thank you for it.
Flossing Is Crucial
Most people brush their teeth in the mornings, however, a smaller percentage of them follow by flossing. Make sure that you floss every day to avoid decay and cavities in between your teeth. Even though you may think a toothbrush is doing the job, it can’t get between those hard to reach places.
