8 Quick Beauty Tricks For A More Sensational You

By Janet Martin

Time is of the essence for busy women, especially for working moms. Being busy, however, should not be an excuse for looking haggard, stressed out and simply unkempt. Despite your ultra busy schedule, you need to allocate even a few minutes to look your best, wherever you go.

Nowadays, being beautiful doesn’t mean spending hours on end primping your hair and doing your make up. Here are some beauty tricks that can make you feel and look gorgeous in less than five minutes anywhere, anytime.

Shiny Locks

A hair spa could definitely give your hair a beautiful shine, but it usually takes at least half an hour to finish. Brushing your hair for 100 times could also add shine to your otherwise dull hair. But do you know how time-consuming 100 brush strokes can be? The answer to shinier hair is simple. Just make sure that you apply hair conditioner after shampooing twice. It would also be better if you choose a product that deeply conditions and treats your particular hair problem such as being dull, brittle, heavily colored or damaged hair.

Bouncy Hair

If you have at least five minutes to spare, you can blow dry your hair using big round brushes. This will surely give your hair some volume. If you have the money to buy one of those battery-operated brushes that roll on their own, get one and you can cut your blow-drying in half the time. However, if you already have dry and brittle hair, you should stay away from hair dryers. Instead, dab on a leave-on conditioner or hair serum on your hair before you go to sleep. Surely, you will wake up with fantastic bounce in the morning.

Professionally Done Hair

Tying your hair in a ponytail is sometimes a little boring, especially if this is your do for almost everyday. For a professional looking do without the fuss, simply add a wide or thick headband with your ponytail and you will surely look great, clean and crisp. For special occasions, choose headbands with a little glitter and shine.

Slim Silhouette

Exercise and dieting can really make you slimmer and leaner. But if you want that instant slim factor, you should wear a push up bra. This will help lift your breasts, giving an illusion of slimmer tummy. If you have some girdles or shape-contouring undergarments, you can use them to look sexier.

Shimmering Skin

You can show off your flawless skin without wearing very skimpy clothing. Just use lotions that have a little shimmer and surely people will notice your slim arms or long sexy legs. If you have an evening date with your husband or partner, don’t forget to use the shimmer because it will make your skin sparkle every time it catches some light.

Concealed Flaws

Everybody has a scar or flaw that needs to be concealed and hidden. You can make your skin problem disappear in a jiffy with the use of airbrush makeup or concealer. It is easy to use and looks natural on your skin. Find one that has moisturizer to keep your skin from drying.

Kissable Lips

You can get an injection just to have the lips of Angelina Jolie if you have a strong tolerance for pain. If not, you can simply dab on your lips some translucent reddish pink gloss. This will make your lips look plump and truly irresistible.

Clean Nails

Find a nail polish that is nude or beige so that your nails will look cleaner and neater. A shade that slightly contrasts your natural skin tone can also do the trick. However, before you polish, make sure that your nails are clean and well trimmed. If you have nail fungus, skip the polish. Make sure you treat your nail fungus first with natural anti-fungal remedy, such as Somasin
