No one likes to be in a rush. But when you’re a mom, this is often inevitable. When you’re running short on time, it’s often the case that the kids are put first before you can even get ready. As much as you’re used to it, it can get a bit frustrating sometimes. Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you have to forego looking presentable at the very least. 

Moms, you’re not alone in this journey! There are thousands of other women who feel the same. Don’t be disheartened as there are many ways that you can look great even while you’re in a rush. Let’s take a look at five of some of the best beauty tricks you can apply without sacrificing too much of your time:

  1. Work On A Shower Routine That Best Fits Your Schedule

The foundation of looking and feeling great starts with a good bath. But when mornings move at light speed, it’s often the case that your time to shower is also cut short. The best hair dryers can help you dry your hair quickly but, sometimes, there’s just too much going on. When this happens, consider coming up with a shower routine that best fits your schedule. 

But what is the best schedule? Of course, this is very subjective and personal. You have to study your schedule and see which time of the day is less busy for you. For example, there are moms who prefer to do their shower routine at night, so they don’t have to fuss about it in the morning. On the other hand, there are also those who need to shower in the morning, because it’s their wake-up call that gives them a boost of energy. Find the schedule that works best for you depending on your individual daily routine.

  1. Practice Overnight Beauty Hacks

Many women tend to take for granted the evenings, which is the time their body does nothing but rest. Overnight is the best time you can pamper your body with beauty products. Through this, you give yourself a chance to rest and for these beauty products to be absorbed by your body without any disruptions. When you sleep, you don’t sweat, and you aren’t exposed to the sun, so these products can work their magic.

Before you sleep, take the time to pamper yourself with overnight beauty tricks like the following:

  • After you shower and dry your hair, apply dry shampoo. This gives it an entire night to soak up the greasiness of your hair. You can wake up the next day with hair smelling good and looking great.
  • Be diligent about applying night creams or facial masks that can be left on your face overnight.
  • Hydrate your hands. As moms, your hands may feel older than they are. After all the work that you have to do in a day, your hands may look wrinkled and dry. There are hydrating gloves that you can now purchase, and you can wear these overnight. If you can’t find one, regular moisturizing lotion will do.

These tips, when applied religiously, can help you look better and feel refreshed in the morning. When your both your skin and hair naturally look good, this takes away the need to put on makeup or style your hair in the morning. This way, you can save so much while also looking your best in a natural way.

  1. Prepare Your Clothes The Night Before 

You may have a closet full of clothes, but you still find that nothing works for you. Mixing and matching clothes is a very common problem among women, and it takes up so much of their time. But rather than fussing and rushing in the morning, give yourself the time to lay out your clothes the night before. That way, you’re able to think through each option, mix-and-match and have better outfit choices. This minimizes the haphazard decisions that you make, which you might regret later on when you feel you don’t look good in your outfit.

  1. Pay Attention To Detail

Paying attention to detail can make the overall difference between looking good and looking drab—but this doesn’t mean that it should take too much time either. It just means exerting that extra effort to look polished without making any significant changes.

Some beauty tips for you to try out are:

  • Keeping your hair neat. If you have a long day, straighten out your hair with the help of hair straighteners or keep your hair tied.
  • Wearing fragrance to smell good despite being on the rush.
  • Put on a dash of lipstick to keep yourself from looking too pale. 
  1. Cut The Makeup Short

Looking good doesn’t mean wearing pageant-ready makeup all the time. You only have to stick to the basics. The less you apply, the less time it will take—and the more natural you’ll look. It also minimizes the chances of you making time-consuming mistakes.

Your basic makeup routine can include any of the following:

  • Wearing BB cream instead of foundation for easy spreading.
  • Keeping your brows natural.
  • Wearing only at least two to three coats of mascara.
  • Keeping your lipstick simple.


Mornings always tend to be in a hurry. As a mom, you might sacrifice your own self-care just to save time. But even if you’re scrambling to get things done, there are still ways that you can look your best in a short amount of time. Give yourself a chance to try out these beauty tips so you can be a supermom—and look great while doing it!
