A Simplified Beauty Routine

As most things in my life, I try to make what I do streamlined and simplified.  This does not necessarily mean that there is no work or thought involved, rather it is more about knowing what I need/like/use/brings me joy and then surrounding what I do around those factors.  Just as I would organize my entertaining supplies, I recently reorganized and purged my beauty supplies to make getting ready a little easier on me.

I previously had my jewelry in storage boxes in my closet which meant I never wore them because I did not want to dig through the boxes.  I had this open space on top of the dresser in my closet for awhile which was becoming just another surface to pile clothes on.  My solution was to put out my accessories so that they were easy to grab, try on, and put away.

Literally what you see is the only jewelry I have and wear besides my wedding ring and a few post earrings.  I have come to the conclusion that I do not need more.  Instead I have a few favorite pieces that I actually wear.

The same goes for doing my hair.  I cleaned up all of my supplies and organized them so they are easy to grab.  And even more helpful, by having a simplified routine, I have less excuses for putting things away after wearing.  No more leaving bobby pins and rubber bands on the counter.  Instead I put them in their little bowl in the drawer right next to the bathroom.  Having less clutter around the house (and especially in our bedroom) makes for less tidying up throughout the day which allows me to focus on more important tasks.

My beauty routine is also pretty low maintenance.  I put on moisturizer, eye shadow, and eye liner, and I am out the door.  I will admit I am not the best at putting on lotion, painting my nails, or putting any type of hair product on my head.  But, especially during the winter, there comes a time that my skin gets so dry, I have to stop what I am doing to moisturize.

I am really enjoying the Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion line.  I have a large bottle of lotion when I am in the mood to lather up after a hot shower.  But I also love having the oil spray available when I need to quickly put something on for radiant and moisturized skin.  So whether your are low maintenance (and maybe a little impatient!) like me, or enjoy taking the time to pamper yourself a little bit, Suave Professionals® is a great source for professional products for the everyday woman.

The Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Care line includes Body Lotion, a daily moisturizer that absorbs quickly for up to 24 hours of non-greasy hydration, and Dry Body Oil Spray, a non-greasy formula that absorbs instantly, locking in long-lasting moisture. The Dry Body Oil Spray is perfect for special occasions such as adding radiant sheen to legs. With a light, luxurious fragrance, these premium products create beautifully silky, radiant skin.
