Even if it’s just ten minutes a day, you must put aside the time to get yourself together. Use this time to try a different beauty routine, or to express your thoughts in a daily journal. Many women feel guilty about taking even a small amount of time for themselves, but you should not feel that way. You will find yourself more willing and able to give to others once you learn to give to yourself.
When beauty is presented to us in the high gloss fashion magazines, it seems overwhelming to the average woman. They dictate color, must-haves of the moment, and complicated, expensive regimes that would lead us to believe at least half our day and paychecks should be dedicated to the pursuit of perfection. Streamlining beauty routines makes sense to our busy lives. Products that perform more than one purpose, and clothing that goes from season to season, year after year, will allow you to be as spectacular as you want to be without the constrains of time or money.
Take a Break
At least twice a day, set aside five minutes to recheck your makeup, hair, posture, and clothing. No matter how impeccably you started out your day, a touch-up is both necessary and warranted. Take some deep breaths to renew and restore your appearance.
