Lazy Girl’s Guide to Grooming

Lazy Girl’s Guide to Grooming

When it comes to grooming, some gals are divas, others are just simply lethargic. If you fall in the lazy category, we’ve got your back. Here are some grooming hacks that require minimum effort, yet leave you looking pretty and polished.

Stock up On Wipes

Using towelettes is a great way to remove makeup, apply sunscreen and fix your hair with a few swipes. You can opt for cleansing cloths that contain soothing ingredients such as cucumber, aloe vera, and chamomile to prevent irritation.

Use Your Fingers

Don’t know which makeup brush works best with which product? Don’t worry! From tinted moisturizers to blush, you can simply use your fingers to apply any product to your skin.  The key is to blend the product properly to make it look more natural.

Invest in Multi-Purpose Products

Create double-duty products to save time and money. This will also enable you to keep your beauty regime super simple. For example, you can tame your bushy eyebrows by misting hairspray onto your fingers and dabbing your hair in place. Brighten your lips using a clear balm. And highlight your cheekbones using a lip tint.

Buy a Good BB Cream

Creating a clear skin complexion requires multiple layers, which consist of a primer, SPF, concealer, color correcting powder, and foundation. Thank god for BB creams. A good BB cream includes SPF, anti-aging moisturizer and a tint to even out your skin tone. Just apply it to your face and you’re good to go.

Opt for Press-On Nails

Press-on nails are ideal for lazy girls who don’t want to spend hours painting their nails and waiting for them to dry. These nails are available in a wide range of trendy colors and prints, so you’re sure to find one that matches your style. If you’re obsessed with nail art, you can try nail stickers.

Splurge on A Scented Deodorant

Spraying on perfume is one grooming step that we often forget before dashing out the door. Applying deodorant, maybe not. These days high-end fragrances are offered in deodorants too. They may be pricey, but still worth considering.

Use a Cure-All Oil

Our bodies require constant moisture. However, having different moisturizers for each body part can cost you a lot of money (and time). This is where essential oils come to your rescue. They serve as a shine serum for your hair, cuticle oil for your fingers, night cream for your face, and lotion for your limbs. Coconut, avocado, and sweet almond are three great natural cure-all oils that come with nourishing fatty ingredients. Organic oils are great to avoid breakouts or irritation. And if you have extra sensitive skin, you can try tea tree oil.
