Spending 5 minutes on your face:
Cold winter winds deplete your skin of moisture. After cleansing, apply a hydrating mask: leave on for 3 mints. Then rinse off. Next, apply moisturizer. Look for a formula that replenishes nutrients naturally found in skin. Vitamin A & E.
Apply gel-based blush. Blend it in with your fingertip, then top with a powder bronzer. The combination creates a natural-looking healthy flush. Add color and softness to your lips with an emollient berry or burgundy hued lip balm.
Spending 1 minute on your face:
Use cleansing cloths. They are really quick and convient. And if you use cloths that contain moisturizers, you can cut your morning skin-care to one step.
Use mascara. If that's all the time you have use it, then add a little lip gloss and you're good to go.
Ingredients you have in the house you can add to your bath water:
1 cup of powdered milk...great for softening the skin
Sprinkle a couple drops of your favorite perfume into the running bath water.
Put oatmeal into a mesh bag ( use an old vegetable bag or laundry sock/lingerie) holder tie onto spout and let running water over it.
If hubby buys you roses for a special occasion save some petals to float in the water along with the instant dry milk...wonderful you'll feel like a princess.
Oh yeah and after you let the oatmeal mesh bag run into the bath water use it to exfoliate your skin by rubbing it all over. Follow with a good moisturizer.
Out of your bubble bath use baby's. My favorite is the lavender kind.... and I use the baby shampoo too!
