A Busy Girl's Guide To Relaxation And Rejuvenation By Barbie's Beauty Bits

As I get older, there seems to be more going on in my life than less.  With deadlines, traveling, work events, there does not appear to be enough time for Busy Gals like myself to unwind and relax. BUT, we need to make time, as not only will it help us physically, but it helps us mentally.

For this post, I have partnered up with BabbleBoxx and Single Edition Media. So, if you want to find out my tips on how a busy gal can relax and rejuvenate when there doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day continue reading.

Get Your Beauty Sleep
Sleep what is that, yet alone beauty sleep???  Yes, I know, if you are a busy gal, you are probably laughing at me as you are reading this, but getting enough sleep is on my priority list.  To do this sometimes, I will put off some things, which only I would notice the difference they are not getting done until the weekend.  Getting at least 6-8 hours of sleep is so important as having a good night sleep affects us both mentally and physically.  Also, trying to go to bed and getting up at the same time every day also helps.

Relief For Tired Eyes
Even though I practice the above, there are still times that I wake up with tired eyes.  So, while my coffee is brewing I grab my Clear Eyes Pure Relief® Multi-Symptom to help relieve my tired red eyes.

In addition to keeping a bottle of the Clear Eyes in my medicine cabinet, I also keep one of these at my desk, worry free too. What do I mean by that? Well, the Clear Eyes Pure Relief® bottle has a built-in purifying filter that keeps the bacteria out, so there’s no need for preservatives, which is perfect for me as some of these preservatives in other brands seem to irritate my eyes even worse!

Therefore, I think preservative free is a better choice for me.  Additionally, I recently found out the preservatives that you may find in other eye drop brands can inhibit bacteria growth inside the bottle, YUK. I don’t want that; I just want some relief for my tired eyes from staring at the computer screen all day!

Tips To Getting Ready In The Mornings
Running around like a chicken with your head cut off will add to your stress, so below are some quick pointers.

Bathing
I found that washing my hair the night before saves on time. So, in the morning, all you must do is jump in the tub for a quick rinse off.

Shaving
What is that and who sees my hairy legs anyways? Well, let me tell you nothing is worse than sitting in a meeting and looking down to notice your hairy ankles! Especially if you’re in a meeting across from someone with your legs crossed, those hairy ankles can be seen, trust me it happened to me a few months ago.

So, to help with this I use Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Cream, it is a fast and painless way to remove hair. I use this no drip formula in the shower, it’s simple, quick and removes the hair quickly and it lasts a while, so no more embarrassing hairy ankle moments.

Now I know you may be thinking, doesn’t that stuff stink and burn? NO, it does not as it is formulated with natural extracts of melon, aloe vera, avocado oil and honey to soothe and protect sensitive skin. And with the new odor elimination technology, this means a lot less smelly, yeah!

Nad’s hair removal cream is an effective way to remove that unwanted hair in just as little as four minutes and who does have 4 minutes to spare in the evening?

Finding Time For Makeup And Other Beauty Essentials When You're Short On Time by barbies beauty bits

Finding Time For Makeup And Other Beauty Essentials
I found that you need to prioritize this and the best way for me is to keep all the things I need to get ready for work all in one place. I have so many beauty products and trying to go through them all when you’re short on time is a nightmare.  Hence keeping a work beauty drawer, by storing all your essentials in that place, makes getting ready much easier.

Hair
Washing your hair daily is not needed, and more so it is not good for your hair. While I do wash my hair in the evenings, in the mornings I use dry shampoo to give my hair a few extra days before I must wash it.  Not only does dry shampoo absorb the oil, but it also adds volume to your hair, so it is still looking great!

Your Scheduled Pampering Time
So, the time has come (according to your calendar) for some me time! We all like to feel like a princess, so for my me time I like to treat myself to some skincare! It is important that you are comfortable in your skin. When it comes to skincare, it isn’t just about targeting lines or fighting wrinkles; instead, the goal is to find ideal multi-dimensional products that make you look and feel radiant!  With that, I like to share with you Bloom Minerals 4 Piece Set. This skincare set has a little bit of everything in it, with minerals from the dead sea, to eye cream and mud masks, this collection sure makes a great spa escape for me!

In addition to feeling great, these products also offer some amazing benefits. And because I am a big proponent on skincare, I thought I would share with you some more details on these dead sea beauties!

Purifying Mud Mask: Mixed with olive oil, honey, fragrance and Aloe Vera extract, this natural and unique mud from under the bed of the Dead Sea is formulated to reach and clean the impurities beneath the skin and keep the skin hydrated. This mask also helps to reduce and delay wrinkles, as well as facial lines for soft, younger looking skin, instead of tired old skin from all the stress!


Softening Cleansing Milk: This cleansing product allows you to remove makeup and clean your face by using only natural moisturizers from Dead Sea minerals.

Shielding Eye Cream: Nothing like relaxing those tired looking eyes even more than with a natural eye cream formulated with vitamin E fruit extracts and the Dead Sea minerals.

Moisture Shield: Moisturizing your skin is so essential, so what a wonderful way to end your spa treatment than with some moisturizing TLC

Treat Yourself To Something Pretty
Next, on my list for some me, time is to treat myself a new bra and pantie set. Now some of you may be thinking, what?? How is this pampering, especially if I want to be by myself? But the truth for me there’s nothing like some beautiful lace to make you feel amazing. It’s the kind of thing we don’t treat ourselves too often enough, but knowing you’re wearing something underneath your clothes, like a seamless Coobie bralette can make you feel great about yourself!

Now you may be wondering, what the heck is a bralette. Well if you can’t tell from the picture below, this lovely lace bra is ultra-comfortable! Made with soft, stretchy lace, and no pads or wires, you can relax and feel beautiful at the same time.

  3. Yay such a great post. I believe it's important to take time to take care of yourself even if you live a hectic life. I take time on Fridays and the weekend to pamper myself. I do all my necessary grooming for the upcoming weekend on Thursday or Friday afternoon. That way I'm set for a while. Thanks for your great tips.
