I love the cool weather of early fall and late spring, but I can’t take the colder months. How about you? It’s been 5 years since I came to America from a tropical island, and I’m still not used to cold weather. Not only do I get cold easily (My husband says I need more fat), but the cold makes my skin much drier and I get lazy to fix myself up. Oops… Today, I’ll be sharing few of my favorite ways on how to feel beautiful fast during the cold months. These tips are also great for busy moms who have active toddlers like me!
1. BRAID OVERNIGHT
If you’re tired of having your hair up everyday, try to braid your hair (when it’s dry) before you go to bed. When you wake up in the morning you’ll have an instant wavy hair look! My favorite way to braid my hair is on the side (image above). I like to put down my hair during the cold season because my long hair acts as a shield for the cold breeze. 😉 This overnight braiding is perfect for busy women or moms, who are looking for a time-saving hair style in the morning.
2. MOISTURIZE IMMEDIATELY
Moisturize your skin immediately. I love how Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer offers an easy way to moisturize my skin. Right after showering I apply it to my wet skin – no need to dry off first! Then, I pat my body dry afterwards. I like how convenient the process is: it keeps me from skipping moisturizing my skin after I shower. I picked up two different scents at Walmart. The first one was Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Cherry Almond Essence, a new scent that is is exclusive to Walmart. I also grabbed a bottle of Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Calming Green Tea Oil, and I love the smell!
3. MAKE YOUR OWN TINTED MOISTURIZER
Cold weather makes my face dry, and that’s why I choose a foundation that also moisturizes my skin. I love to use tinted moisturizer. If you don’t have this product at home, you can make one on your own by mixing your favorite facial moisturizer and foundation together. Not only does it moisturize your skin, it also quickly evens out your skin tone. The application is fast and easy, as all you need are your fingers. Just apply it as you would regular moisturizer. Tip: If you have matte foundation, try to squeeze a little bit of highlighter liquid or a tiny bit of baby oil onto your DIY tinted moisturizer, and then blend them well. This will help your skin look radiant and dewy during the cold season.
4. SWITCH TO CREAM BLUSH
Like I often mention in my beauty posts, cream blushes are fast and easy to apply and they last longer throughout the day. Plus, they give natural blush to your cheeks without looking powdery. I also love to use liquid lipstick that comes with a wand. It’s convenient to use and I can also use it as an instant-blush.
5. WHAT YOU WEAR IS WHAT YOU FEEL
During the fall and winter, it is so easy to stay in pajamas all day. Sometimes I notice my mom or husband are dressed up, and I ask, “Where are you going?” Often they are not going anywhere – they just like to look nice! One of the things I learned from my husband (who is a psychologist) is that taking the time to dressed up in the morning, makes you feel more awake and positive. You don’t have to dress up in formal attire or anything, just something nicer than your pajamas. Changing into some nicer clothes and fixing your hair and makeup a little bit can help lead to a beautiful feeling. Not only are you taking care of yourself, but you also inspire others (like your kids) to take care of themselves as well.
6. ADD SIMPLE ACCESSORIES
Whether you chose to wear sunglasses or add a scarf to your wardrobe, this is a quick and easy way to definitely boost your confidence and make yourself feel beautiful fast!
7. BEAUTY COMES FROM THE INSIDE
Reading the Bible is one of the best ways to feel beautiful fast. Before my day becomes busy with the kids, reading my Bible in the morning helps me to think and feel positively beautiful. It’s a great foundation for your heart and mind, to feel and see the beauty of God working in you. I’m in the book of John right now, and I really like the verse where Jesus says, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give will become a spring of water gushing up inside that person, giving eternal life.” (John 4:13-14)
By the way, Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer has other scents like Nourishing Monoi Oil, Refreshing Coconut Oil (I’ll try this one next!), and Restoring Argan Oil. All of these scents are essential oils that work with your wet skin to lock in moisture. Try using this product right after you shower to experience how quickly it moisturizes, keeping your skin soft throughout the day.
