Beauty tips for busy girls



We always want to look our best, regardless of whether we have all morning to get ready or just ten minutes. While each person's style is different, there are a huge number of tips and tricks which can help just about anyone sharpen up on the go or ensure their style holds up all night long.

Take a look at just a few of these beauty tips with a view to helping you to look your best when you're on the move.

Wash your face

It's easy to forget that the happier we are with our natural complexion, the less make-up we'll choose to use. Using a large amount of make-up can have a negative effect on the look of our skin, sometimes creating a vicious circle. Take the time to wash your face on a regular basis using a cleanser that suits your skin type and you'll find you need to spend less time applying make-up in the future.

Don't underestimate the power of fruit and vegetables

It's no secret that cucumber can be used to cheer up your skin, but there are a few other edible skin saviours out there that you might not be aware of. Research by Newcastle University has shown that eating tomatoes could help protect against ageing of the skin caused by exposure to sunlight. Lime juice can also be used as a natural facial scrub; mixing lime juice with a bit of sea salt can help to give it a slight exfoliating power.


Sleep well

You may have a busy lifestyle and find it hard to spend time looking after your appearance during the day, but it's not only the time we spend applying make-up and cleaning our face which contributes to the way that we look.

Getting a good night's sleep on a regular basis can do wonders for your skin and overall look. While there are a number of tricks on hand for those who have only been able to catch a few hours' sleep, the only way to obtain the naturally healthy look is to take care of yourself. The first step on this road is a good night's sleep every night.
