It can be quite challenging for a busy mum to find time for herself and at times it is hard for a mum to take care of herself. Looking good and feeling good is every woman's desire, which means that even for a busy mum it is still possible to look good.

The following beauty tips will sort out any busy mum who is time constrained:

Drink lots of water

Water is such a powerful cleanser besides quenching thirst, drinking water has many benefits such as leaving you with a smooth glowing nourished skin. It is also important for your health as well besides being a beauty tip.

Water plays an important role in getting rid of toxins in your body, it also hydrates your body and reduces the bloating and puffiness making you look more beautiful than ever. This less tasty, non-attractive looking drink that you avoid all the time is a great beauty secret that you can use for a glowing healthy beautiful skin.

Moisturize with olive oil

Olive oil is well known as a cooking oil and most people will just use it in their vegetable salads or to prepare meals. However, there is another secret to olive oil, it is a wonderful skin moisturizer.

The best type of olive oil is the extra virgin olive oil which is pure and is rich in antioxidants. You can use it on your face and any other part of your body as a moisturizer.

After you have washed your face, use a small amount of extra virgin olive oil, daily on your face and massage your face well after application and enjoy the new you.

Use Dry Hair Shampoo

With little or no time to wash your hair and wait for hours for it to dry and be style. Save on time, and try using the dry hair shampoo which is easy to use. Simply spray it into your hair, massage your hair, brush your hair and style.

This may sound ridiculous, given the fact that you are used to washing your hair with water, but hey! it works especially when time is not on your side, it is a quick time saving beauty tip.

Use a tanner

No time to apply the layers of make up to get that sophisticated look? Use a self tanner to do a good quick job. There are several self tanners available on the market that will give you a gorgeous face.

This simple to use self tanning product will only require five minutes of your time to when applying it.

Use Whitening strips

Are concerned about how you teeth look like? Worry no more, with the teeth whitening strips, you can turn your teeth into pearl looking teeth within a short time. This will save you trips to the dentist for teeth whitening sessions.

Use mineral make-up

Make-up plays an important role in every woman's life, in one way of another. Women love to wear make-up, either for a gorgeous look, conceal scars or compliment their attire.

Applying make-up does take time, until you get it right you can spend several minutes just trying to achieve that beautiful look. If you are a busy mum, the time spent applying make-up can be a bother that in most you may just abandon the whole make-up application.

With mineral make up, you can get a nice look within such a short time, since it is an easy and time saving application.

Most make up products have mineral make up available, apply it using a brush, compliment your skin color without clogging your skin pores like most make-up products do.

Do some eye brow shaping

As a busy mum, you can still find some little time to go to salon and have your eye brows shaped. Since this is just about some of the things that you can't do easily by yourself, you can spend 20-30 minutes of your busy schedule eye brow shaping.

Items that should always be in your handbag

You can use eye pencil, to highlight your eyes, an addition of eye shadow will do a great job too, giving your eyes a more beautiful look. This is something you can even apply while in the car. For a much fuller look, apply mascara this will help with enhancing your eyes making you look gorgeous.

Take care of your lips

No time for lipstick? Use lip gloss for a more natural look, apply lip gloss on you lips for a fuller, glossier while moisturizing your lips at the same time.There are several types of lip gloss available in different flavors and colors giving you a wider selection to choose from.

You need to have a body spray, deodorant of perfume in your handbag at all times, and keep smelling fresh all day.

Nice to see a practical article that acknowledges that time poor mothers still want to look nice, but don’t want to spend a fortune in terms of time and money on the process.
