You already know that the ultimate beauty trick is good old-fashioned rest. (And heads up: Women actually need more sleep than men do.) So why are we all cutting our z’s short to primp and polish before the sun is up? Here are some ways to sleep in a little later—and still look gorgeous when you leave the house.
Clutter is a major culprit for stress (and wasted time). Create a tray of just the morning essentials and leave it out on your counter. Anything for further pampering (bath salts, masks, heavy creams) should be out of sight and mind.
Yes, you want to bust out the tweezers at the first sight of a rogue eyebrow hair. But that can spiral into a 15-minute groom fest. Promise: Your brows can wait until the weekend—or at least until that night.
Do the bulk of your body cleaning when it’s at its dirtiest: in the evening. Not only will your muscles appreciate the warm water, but you’ll also be ahead of the game in the a.m. A quick rinse-off or pat down before you get dressed is all you’ll need.
In that you wash and set it only a few times a week. Styling your hair each and every morning is a surefire way to eat up precious sleeping time. Instead, incorporate some dry shampoo or clever braids into your off days.
You can make it look glam in two seconds with something as simple as a hidden clip.
And avoid having to backtrack to clean up any messes. It should go like this: eyes, face, cheeks, lips, brows. (Here’s why.)
Yes, it’ll take an hour out of your life once a month. But every morning it’ll save you minutes of agonizing over clumpy mascara. (Read: You won’t need to wear any.) And that also means no more raccoon eyes.
Alicia Keys and Mila Kunis are doing it. Embrace the all-natural look and reclaim your precious morning time.
