We’re currently seeing an increase in the number of working women. In fact, there is a larger number of women now filling mid- to top-level management positions in large corporations. Being a career woman and having a busy work life can be challenging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t maintain beautiful skin. In fact, if you stick to these simple beauty routines, you can easily look your best at work.

Early Morning Routine
One of the best things to do in the morning is to wash your face. This is something you should do every day, even when you’ve washed your face at night after a long day at work. Use a gentle cleanser with an inbuilt moisturizing agent and you’ll be able to maintain healthy and elastic skin.

If you have sensitive skin or skin that’s prone to acne, there are special acne-fighting cleansers and facial foam products that will work wonders. They are perfect for morning routines because they too contain a large amount of moisturizing agent.

For oily skin, on the other hand, going with a simpler facial foam designed for this type of skin is the way to go. You don’t need more moisturizer for your skin is producing a lot of natural moisturizer already. You can also use toners to deep-clean the pores and remove any remaining oil and dirt.

Cut Back on Makeup
Instead of wearing heavy makeup to work every day, it is actually better to have a more natural, lighter look. There are two benefits you can get from applying lighter makeup. First of all, you save a lot of time in the morning. You will no longer have to spend an hour or so applying the right foundation and layers of makeup. This means you’ll have more time for a healthy breakfast or perhaps a quick bit of exercise.

The second benefit is the fact that lighter, more natural makeup is easier to maintain throughout the day. As you juggle between your work and the master of science in nursing degree you are pursuing through Bradley University’s online course, you won’t need to do multiple touchups or reapply your makeup at all.

You’ll be surprised by how little you actually need to look beautiful. The right BB cream or a moisturizing foundation is usually enough to conceal any blemishes and other imperfections. A light layer should be more than enough. You can then use other makeup items such as a blush on or an eyeliner to add the right accents for a natural look.

After a Long Day at Work
Always – and I do mean ALWAYS – take the time to clean your makeup after work, no matter how tired you might be. Leaving makeup overnight is okay every now and then, but going to bed without cleaning your makeup every day will cause some unwanted issues in the future.

A toner or a makeup remover is usually enough to wipe everything off cleanly and quickly. You can also use a night cream to help your skin regenerate and provide it with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. There are a lot of products to choose from too.

After all, it’s the end of the day. No matter how busy – and how bad – the day was, taking a few minutes to wash your face, and apply some night cream and skin treatments before finally jumping into bed will help you sleep even better.

  1. Great article! I find having a simple routine helps me de-stress a little bit and I feel happy that I’m doing self care even if it’s something small.
