Waking up early in the morning and getting ready for the day is a big pain. But did you know there are things you can do to take minutes off your morning routine?

Plan Ahead

You can give yourself ten extra minutes to sleep. Plan and organize the night before not leaving it for morning. Check your schedule to see if you have any meetings that requires some preparation.

Beautify Over Night

You can save a lot of time in the morning by adding certain products to your night routine. Try an overnight tanning moisturizer instead of having to worry about primer or toner in the morning. You will wake up with a fresh and healthy glowing skin.

Kiss the Blow-Dryer Goodbye

After you shower let your hair air dry naturally. It can save you a lot of time because instead of holding the blow dryer you can do so many other things simultaneously. Less heat is much better for the health of your hair. To get beautiful beach waves, put your hair in a loose side braid and take it out before you get to work.

Double Duty

Invest in some double duty makeup products. It’s a great way to save your time and money. There will be no need to go to the store also! Cream blush can work great as a lip stain. Light eye shadow can also act as an awesome highlighter and darker shades can work as double bronzer.

Instant Coffee

Save you’re few minutes more by making your coffee the night before. Get the water and coffee all set up done at night itself  so come morning, all you need to do is just push the button.  If you have an instant coffee maker then you there’s not a lot you need to do to speed up the process because it’s already fast.

Ready to Go Outfit

As a part of your plan ahead process, pick your outfit the night before. Make sure to choose the correct outfit which is stain-free, ironed, and pressed. You will be surprised that you will be saving a lot of time when you aren’t trying three different outfits until you find the one that is just right.

Forgo the Face Wash

If you wash your face at night, which actually you should, then there is no need to wash it again in the morning.  As your face doesn’t get dirty while you’re sleeping and washing it too much can strip the skin of its natural oils. Instead as a wakeup call for your face just splash some cold water.

Hello Hydration

Say bye to soap and instead start using hydrating body wash. Soap is really harsh on the skin and pulls off your skin’s moisture that is why you feel the need to apply lotion after a shower. Using a hydrating body wash will moisturize your skin, and there will be no need to apply lotion post-shower.

Stay Organized

Keep your closet and bathroom organized so you exactly know where everything is kept including your makeup bag too. If you have a huge bag packed with all types of makeup divide it into few smaller bags, depending on the day and night make up. By doing this you will realize the amount of time we wasted when looking for things.
