Time saving products

I work with beauty products and it’s super important for me to take good care of myself. It can also be a way to relax and have some self care time. We all love a good mud mask now and then, but I am also a bit lazy, so I love products that make my day 2 day life easier. Since I’m on my way to become a mum I’m thinking these types of products will be exactly what I’m gonna need. So this is why I have created a list of products that are perfect for the stressed, the lazy, the mamas. Here we go

Tinted moisturizer – this one is phenomenal, I usually don’t wear that much make-up, and a moisturizer with a little color is sometimes all I need to feel a bit more fresh looking. Super easy to apply, good for your skin and good coverage.

Instaglow – You don’t have time or patience to lay in the sun all day? Or maybe you’re just one of those who doesn’t really get tanned? Or maybe you just want a little bit of glow and color in your face? This one is amazing. It smells minimal, super easy to apply, natural color that gets even straight away and it leaves an amazing glow. Mix bit of this one and the tinted moisturizer in the morning and your set.

AHA facial peel – this is a chemical peeling that just preforms miracles on your skin. It’s an amazing treatment and I do it once a week (while not pregnant). It’s dipped pads, so you just pick one, scrub it around, leave for 10 minutes and then do step 2, which is the same thing but a different pad. Super easy, super fast, and makes a huge difference. It’s also anti-ageing!

Hydrating mask – After the AHA peel, or just in general, throw some hydration on your face. I’ve been living for this while pregnant too, since my skin has gotten a bit more dry. It’s so soft and mild and feels great. It is a mask, but you don’t need to use it like one, you can just put a thinner layer and leave it on, I usually put it on before bed.

Hair mask – now you might be thinking, time saving? Really? on this one. But yes! My beloved miracle hair mask is of course amazing as a mask, for when you take a bath, or have that time to leave it in. But my time saving tips in regards to this product is, put it in before bed and leave over night for when you’re gonna shower in the morning, or just put a bit in the lengths after washing your hair, when it’s still wet, of course not a lot, just a bit, like a leave-in product. It’s amazing for dry and split ends.

Lumispa – for me, this device is time saving, and also super easy to use. Since it does everything that you need to cleanse properly, even removes your make-up, all in 2 minutes, and it’s also super relaxing, like a mini face-massage.

If you like any of these products and want to try them you can leave a comment with which ones your like and what country you live in and I will provide you with a link with a special offer, 15% discount that is. You can also reach me through my facebook page.

Examples for creating a morning routine that works for you

So for me a morning routine is very important. I feel a huge difference when I have done my morning routine and when I have not. It’s setting a tone for the rest of the day.

I have had a few different routines, and there are so many different versions. What’s important is to create a routine that works for you and that doesn’t feel like a chore but feels like something that makes you feel good.

I like to start off with something clean. To wake me up and make me feel fresh

  • A proper skincare routine
  • Wash your face with cold water
  • A shower
One of my favorite skin care systems
Let me know if you wanna know more about it!

Then I like to do a quick stretch session, I have tired to do the full on yoga session or a long walk, but the morning is just not the right time for that for me. I do think it’s important to do some sort of movement.

  • Take a walk
  • Go to the gym
  • Go for a run
  • Do some exercises at home
  • A full on yoga session
  • Stretching

I try to start my day in silence in general, no music, or podcasts, or tv, just silence. It makes me feel calm. I have listened to music and podcasts and motivational videos but for me the silence is what I need. Get some space in your mind, calm those rushing thoughts. Give yourself a break.

  • Meditation
  • Praying
  • Breathing
  • Calming music

Writing. Journaling. Now this is my favorite one. I could not be without it. For me journaling is like organizing my thoughts and mind. I have an amazing planner that I fill out every morning and night, but also just a notebook where I write freely. I make sure to write down what is happening in my head, gratitude and visualization.

  • Gratitude list
  • Visualize
  • Journaling
  • Reflections
  • Affirmations
  • Goals
  • To do’s for the day
  • Morning motivation video (example here)

Other things that I think are important for my mornings are

  • Get up on time, no stress
  • Have a good breakfast
  • Enjoy my cup of coffee
  • Cuddle with my pups
  • Get dressed and ready
  • Air out the bedroom (especially important when one is allergic like me)
  • Reading

I wish I could make the bed in the morning, but I need to air out properly for some time before I can do that. The last point on the list here is not really true for me yet. I really want to incorporate reading into my morning routine, but I’m not quite there with the time I have.
