Hacks & Tips For Looking Good & Feeling Good When You’ve Got Little Kids

When you are a busy mom, it can be hard to take time for yourself. There are always other things to be doing when you get any spare time. There are chores to do, clothes to clean and groceries to buy. Nap time is a precious time to get things like that done. You might even take a nap yourself during that time.

Quick Looks for Your Hair

If you can add a few quick looks and hair tricks to your repertoire, then you will have a winning formula. I find that hair is something that can make sure feel and look much better. So even if it means just changing things up and adding hair clips every now and again, then go for it. Braided hair is pretty trendy at the moment, and they last for a long day being a mom. You could also use hats in summer to hide a multitude of hair sins! Dry shampoo is a must for any mom when you need to get out of the house in a rush.

Quick Beauty Tricks
Again; our time is so precious. So if there is something that can speed up your routine, you need to consider it. You could dye your eyelashes or get eyelash extensions. Then you don’t have to worry about mascara each morning. If you’d prefer something less permanent, you could use false lashes. Then they can just be stuck on as and when you want to wear them. There are many affordable falsies out there, so you could shop violet voss or other similar brands. Other beauty tricks that save time include things like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. They will hydrate and moisturize your skin, as well as acting as a bronzer or foundation.

Eat Well

It can be hard when you have little children, as you can constantly feel drained of energy. If you are eating the wrong types of food, it can make you feel like you have less energy. A balanced diet has never been more important. Avoid foods that are too sugar-laden or full of carbohydrates. These can give you a bit of an artificial energy boost. Then you will get an energy slump, as it affects your blood sugar so much. You want to eat foods that will keep your blood sugar fairly regular. Lots of protein and low-sugar foods would be better.

Plan Your Time

The main message is that you need to plan time for yourself. As moms, we will rarely do this. But it isn’t selfish to schedule in a little time for yourself. It could be when your partner is home, or another family member can take care of the kids. It might just be when the kids are in bed. Just remember to schedule it in and make sure that it happens. Do something that you used to love, like baking, running or crafts, for example.
