We have all been there … working hard to maintain career goals while also juggling fitness classes, heavy carry-all bags, and simultaneously meeting the demands of our families packed schedules, dinner menus, and so much more. And then we look in the mirror and – GASP!
There are flyaways and frizzies galore, our lips are pale, and the circles under our eyes are as black as night. With so many challenges in today’s fast-paced world, it is difficult to conquer it all and still look pulled together. However, women everywhere are able to pull it off every single day. Wondering how do they do it? We’ve got you covered!
Do not leave the house without these five beauty tips to always look pulled together:
1. Purchase a Water Bottle You Love
You probably already know that water is one of the most important nutrients for good health. What you might not know is that each and every cell in your body is made up of approximately 2/3 water – including skin cells. To help reduce fine lines and banish dark under eye circles, try to drink the recommended daily amount of purified water every day: about 13 cups for men, and 9 cups for women.1
Drinking enough water can be a daunting task without a carry-along water bottle that you love to use. Some of the best water bottles include fruit/herb infusers inside of the bottle, so that you can get more nutrients and flavor in every sip.
NOTE: Only buy BPA-free bottles, or opt for glass bottles to reduce your exposure to toxic chemicals.
2. Quick Wipes
These are an absolute must-have for women on-the-go. Take them to the office, use them before (or after) a spontaneous gym session, and even try them as a makeup remover. Quick wipes are ideal for fighting off breakouts and keeping smeared makeup from standing in your way of looking fabulously put together. These versatile, pre-moistened towelettes are available at drugstores for all skin types.
3. Extra-Long Lashes
Everyone wants long, beautiful eyelashes, but it can be hard to maintain that high-intensity look with regular mascara. The solution? Beverly Hills MD Lash Enhancing Serum – made to plump up your look with a clear formula specifically designed to nourish lashes that grow in naturally longer, thicker, denser, and darker. Simply apply the Beverly Hills MD Lash Enhancing Serum to clean, dry eyelashes for a more dramatic look without the need for expensive lash extensions.
Keeping healthy snack foods in your desk is the best way to get your mid-day energy levels up. Awaken tired eyes with a workplace snack that revs you up for a night out. Try any of these energizing foods: seed and nut bars, Greek yogurt, hummus dip with cucumber slices, kale chips, grass-fed beef sticks, and pasture-raised, hard boiled eggs. Stash these natural foods in your desk drawer or a mini-fridge at the office, for a super-nutritious snack in a pinch.
5. Only Purchase Multi-Purpose
You can’t take a full makeup kit everywhere you go, but you can pack a punch with these three all-purpose products. Always keep these best-kept beauty secrets handy if you want to look like you just stepped out of your front door, when it’s 3:30 in the afternoon.
Hydrating Stick. Moisten dry spots, smooth down flyaways, eliminate cracking cuticles and even use it as a lip-gloss. Just one cocoa butter hydrating stick is ideal for a touch-up anywhere on your face or body.
Crème Blush. You can find these in a stick or tub, and the colorful results are always the same. Smooth a dot of crème blush into cheeks, eyelids, or even lips for a fast, flushed look that will always leave you looking pulled together.
Nude Makeup Pencil. For covering blemishes, balancing uneven skin tone, smoothing stray brow hairs, and reducing the appearance of dark circles under eyes, use a thick, nude pencil. Made for use on face and body, there isn’t anything these nude makeup pencils can’t do.
Women that seem to have it all may not really have everything under control, but they can still look like they do. All you need to always look pulled together are these five beauty secrets of everlasting wonder women, just like you.
