11 Beauty Hacks To Save You Time In The Morning

Have you ever struggled to get out of bed in the morning? Whether it’s because you stayed up too late the night before or you accidentally hit the snooze button 5 (or 10) times. It happens; and having to rush to work in the morning all because you woke up late, isn’t fun at all. Luckily, there are a few beauty hacks you can use to make running late a little easier.

Here are 11 hacks that’ll save you time in the morning while still helping you look great:

Style Your Hair The Night Before

You don’t have to wake up in the morning with messy hair. You can actually style your hair the night before so you wake up with fresh waves. Before you go bed, apply your go-to cream or leave in conditioner, and braid your hair into two, loose braids. Then, go to sleep and voila — you’ll wake up with gorgeous curls!

Dip Your Nails In Ice Water

Did you wake up with a chipped manicure? Worry not. You can paint your nails and have them dry in less than one minute. How? By dipping your manicure into cold, ice water. Cold water instantly dries nails so you don’t have to wait around!

Stick To Makeup Essentials

A lot of women think they need to apply a ton of makeup products in order to look presentable. This isn’t true! You really only need a few essentials: foundation, concealer, highlighter, mascara, and an eyebrow brush. (You might not even need the mascara if you’ve been blessed with thick lashes.)

Apply your foundation, use concealer to hide your blemishes, and then use a highlighter to add a little glow to your face before defining your brows and eyelashes.

Consider Getting Waxing

Do you spend a lot of time shaving? Whether you’re constantly shaving your bikini area, your legs, or underneath your armpits, you should consider waxing. Yes, waxing can be expensive but it’ll save you so much time in the long run.

Say goodbye to shavers so you can save yourself some time in the mornings!

Shower At Night

Showering at night will save you so much time in the morning, it’ll also help you sleep better. Your body temperature drops when you get out of the shower which makes you more relaxed and ready for bed.

Not to mention, you won’t have to worry about blow drying your wet hair in the morning when the time is already of the essence.

Blow Dry Your Hair Last

You might be one of those people who LOVES showering in the morning. That’s fine, too. Just make sure you don’t blow dry your hair the second you get out of the shower. It’s better to leave that until you’re dressed and almost ready to leave the house.

This will give your hair time to dry naturally which means you’ll only have to use the blow dryer for a few minutes…if that.

Don’t Forget About Hats & Headbands

Here’s the thing about bed head…it can be covered up! Use a trendy hat or headband to hide your unruly morning hair. Not only are these cute accessories great at making you look good (even when you look bad) but they can usually take an outfit up a notch!

Introduce A Bold Lipstick

Hack: When you’re running late in the morning and you don’t have time to apply a lot of makeup, take advantage of the lipstick rule. Use a bold lipstick, or lip liner, to give your face a fashionable look without spending too much time. Try something bright that’ll add a little “wow” to your face.

Use Lipstick For Blush

Speaking of lipstick, did you know it can be used as a blush. Yes, I’m serious! Instead of spending money going through your makeup bag trying to find the perfect blush color, use the lipstick you already have in your hand.

Rub a little lipstick on your finger and then dab some onto your cheeks to create a clean look!

Use Ice To Debloat Your Face

Do you ever wake up in the morning with a puffy face? Guess what? A few minutes of ice will help you debloat and get rid of that swelling so you can leave the house looking fresh-faced! Take an ice cube and roll it over your face. If you don’t have ice, use anything in your freezer (a frozen bag of peas will even do the trick.)

If you consistently wake up with a puffy face, purchase a jade roller to make the debloating process quicker and more effective.

Group Tasks Together

Whenever you can group tasks together, you should! If you can detangle your hair with a comb in the shower, why not do it? If you can let a face mask sit while eating your breakfast, give it a try! The best way to save time is to reduce the amount of time it takes you to complete tasks. Don’t be afraid to group things together!
