5 Quick And Easy Beauty Tricks For Busy Professionals

As a busy professional, you don't have time in the morning to doll yourself up for the day, so keeping up your appearance can be a challenge (especially if you have a family to take care of before work!). So, do you resort to waking up earlier or do you skip maintenance all together? You don't have to do either! These five quick beauty tips are easy and doable for any woman - no matter how busy!

1. Prep The Night Before

Go ahead, hit the snooze button one more time! Before you head to bed, paint your nails, do a facial, or trim your bangs. Not only is it a nice way to unwind at the end of a long work day, but it will help you wake up refreshed and ready to go.

2. Get Brighter Teeth With Lipstick

Kiss those dull teeth goodbye and trick everyone into thinking you have a new set of pearly whites! Try lipsticks with blue undertones. Shades that accentuate your smile include wines, burgundies, and berries.

3. Put Your Moisturizer In The Fridge

Puffy eyes? No problem! Leave some moisturizer in your fridge and use it when you wake up in the morning. The coolness helps get rid of swelling and inflammation, so say goodbye to puffiness!

4. Rinse With Carbonated Water

If frizzy hair is a major problem for you, try this weird (but easy) remedy. Because of its low pH level, carbonated water is a great frizz-reducer. This quick fix is especially helpful in the summer when it's sticky and humid.

5. Tame Unruly Eyebrows With Hairspray

Hairspray is a wonderful thing (when used in moderation!). Spritz a little bit of hairspray on an old toothbrush then comb your eyebrows for a polished, eye-popping look. Photo Credit: Shutterstock

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
