Whether you’re going to college full-time or are balancing work, family and online study, you need a quick and easy beauty routine to keep you looking good and also functioning at your optimum level. Here are five beauty tips for busy college students that will save you time.
1. Drink Plenty of Water
We all know that we need to drink plenty of water every day to keep us hydrated and healthy. Water helps to hydrate the cells in our body, which is extremely important for proper muscle function. It dissolves minerals and nutrients making them more accessible to our body. This helps every part of our body to function correctly including the brain.
So whether you’re studying for your accredited nurse practitioner degree or an MBA in marketing make sure that you carry a bottle of water with you whenever you’re on campus.
2. Organize Your Beauty Needs
Before classes start, make sure all of your beauty needs are well organized, tidy and easily accessible. Throw out all your empty bottles, the make-up you never use, and any brushes which are no longer functional.
It’s amazing how getting organized helps to streamline your daily routine. When everything is easy to find there’s no time wasted in rummaging through your makeup drawer trying to find your eyeliner when you’re already 10 minutes late leaving home.
3. Try Laying Out Your Essential Products the Night Before
Having everything laid out ready for your morning routine takes the stress out of getting ready and out of the house on time in the morning. You could even put all your essential make-up in the one bag which you can take with you if you’re running late.
4. Detangle Your Hair in the Shower
Make sure you have a wide tooth comb hanging in the shower and after applying conditioner to your hair, comb it through and rinse. This is especially useful if you have curly or wavy hair which tends to frizz easily. Combing your conditioner through helps to coat each hair strand and means that you don’t need to do anything to your curls after you get out of the shower.
5. Practice Putting Your Make-up On In Five Minutes
Stick to the bare minimum of make-up and work on putting your face on quickly. This is especially important if you’re trying to balance work with studying for an online nurse practitioner’s degree or a similar health related field.
When working in the health field, you want to look as natural as possible so concentrate just on using maybe a face powder, mascara, a dab of blush, a concealer if you need it, and a neutral lipstick or gloss. With practice this simple makeup routine should only take you five minutes to put on every morning.
So whether you’re going to college every day or you’re studying hard to learn how to become a nurse practitioner while holding down a job and caring for your family, having a quick, simple beauty routine will save you time and stress every single morning so you
