In just 10-minutes!

A quick beauty routine you too might want to follow, even if all you have is 10 minutes!

My favourite time in the whole week – comes on a Sunday – around 3 in the afternoon. The chores are done, the kids asleep and sometimes so is hubby… And the day I don’t also fall in bed for a much-needed nap, I can focus on my sometimes bedraggled beauty routine. New mothers, or frankly mothers in general are often sore pressed for time. I felt the pressure when I had my first son and now with another one, “free” time is more or less a fantasy. But when  I do get those 10 minutes or that 1 hour or anything in between, here’s what I do, once every week…

10-minute Wonder:

I stick to Neutrogena for this. I like the brand, but I love their nifty products. I start with the Neutrogena Wave Cleanser – a handy little battery operated product that not only deep cleanses the face but also gives it a gentle massage. At Rs 799 for the product itself and Rs 399 (30) for the refill pads, its cheap for the glowing face it gives you… A dab of my favourite moisturizer and I am glowing, thoroughly.

20-minutes Goddess:

Start with a good rub of my own wonder face oil – to every 2tbsp virgin olive oil (any brand) I mix in 1 capsule of vit E (Evion 400) – just cut open the capsule and pour. I take just a bit of this oil on my palms and give my face a good 2-3 massage. Then I follow up with my Neutrogena Wave Cleanser. Post this; I put on a quick-work mask, like the new Nivea Pure Effect Total Face Cleanup. Again some serum or moisturizer in the end and I am ready to face the rest of the day with my best face forward…

30-minute Diva:

Massage face and neck with oil and then give myself some steam for 3-4 minutes to the pores to open and the goodness of the oil to really seep in. Then it’s back to the wave cleanser for a 5-minute face wash and massage. After this, I use a toner or softener to prepare my skin better to receive the mask. Then its mask time – it could be a quick homemade concoction of coffee grounds, chocolate/cocoa powder and some milk or it could straight out of a tube – Everyuth Orange Peel-Off or the The Body Shop Seaweed Iconic Clay Mask is what I usually go for. The VLCC Insta Glow Face Pack is another choice. Wash off the mask and lotion up for a face that can launch a thousand ships, et al…

To really add to the overall glow, the new Garnier BB cream and a little lip gloss come in handy… Till tomorrow!
