One of the things on my vision board this year is to take better care of my skin – intentionally. Over the past few years, I have had skincare routines on and off. This is partly because skincare takes time to do, and also, some of these products are expensive, to be honest.

And so, when my mind convinces me that my skin is doing well without any products other than moisturizer and sunscreen (when I remember to use it), that’s when I stop 🙈. 

Although my skin is generally okay, I have been looking for quick beauty hacks that will save me time, but most importantly, money.

If you are like me who is making every effort to take care of your skin but at the same time save time and money, here are some beauty tips for you.

Spritz on Perfume

Selecting a signature scent will automatically make you feel more put together, even on days when you’re walking around in jogger pants and a sweatshirt. You don’t need to use your hard-earned money on a dozen different fragrances—spend some time sampling scents at your favorite beauty retailer and pick just one that makes you feel good.

Perfect the At-Home Mani/Pedi

There’s nothing better than being able to give your nails new life from the comfort of your home. Look for some Pinterest inspiration and do the magic!

You’ll be surprised by just how much money this beauty trick will save you.

Go Through Your Makeup Collection

A few months ago, I used an expired foundation. At the time of using it, I didn’t know it had expired until my face was full of breakouts a few days after.

What I’m trying to say is, if there is anything in your beauty cabinet that you haven’t touched in three to six months, let it go. It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed when your cabinet is full of things you don’t use and like.

Pick Your Top Favorite Products

It’s hard when you are hearing all these reviews about products you don’t have and want to get. However, try and stick to one product for your eyes, and another for your face.

This way, you won’t have a longer process in your routine, and you won’t need to spend money buying too many products.

Try This Trick to Look More Alert

Who has time for a multi-step beauty routine every morning? If you want to look more alive in the morning, put some shimmery shadow in the inner corner of the eye. It’s so easy and makes you look instantly awake.

You can thank me later when the compliments roll in 😊
