5 Ways To Groom Like A Girl Boss
Taking care of your mental, emotional and physical health should be a priority for everyone these days. When you’re a working woman, though, it can be easy to put things on the back burner as you’re up against deadlines, long hours, and family obligations too. Since grooming, attitude, and confidence all go hand in hand, it’s essential to stay up on your glow-up no matter how long the days seem to be. Let’s take a look at some easy ways to make sure you’re grooming like a girl boss – cause let’s face it, when you look good, you feel good!
Maintain Regular Appointments
While keeping appointments may not seem like they’re parting of grooming routines, they 100% are. As mentioned earlier, when we’re busy, it’s easy to put off our needs to meet the needs of our bosses, our spouses, and our children. When you want to look and feel your best, honor yourself by keeping your routine appointments. Make sure you’re going to the dentist twice a year for your cleanings and addressing any issues that may arise. Go see your hairstylist every six to eight weeks to keep your hair looking its healthiest. Visit your dermatologist to keep your skin glowing and address anything else you may have going on, like moles or rashes. And keep your therapy appointments. Health is wealth – and mental health is paramount.
Shower At Night
When you’re rushed in the morning, it’s easy to put off showering because it’s time-consuming, especially if you’ve got a hair mask or shaving to do. Instead, shave off some time in the evenings to shower then. If you’re a working mother, you can also relax during this time after your kids have gone to bed. Take a nice hot bath and unwind some nights when a shower doesn’t sound as calming. By showering in the evenings, you free up time to do other grooming like a boss in the morning.
We all know while working hard that jobs are a lot easier when we have the right tools. The same concept applies to our grooming routines too. Investing in the highest quality tools, you can make your grooming routines more straightforward and faster. So, if you flat iron your hair, go for that Babyliss; if you blow-dry daily, go for the new Dyson blow dryer. Maybe you’re a makeup gal who already spends a good amount of her disposable income on high-end makeup, then treat yourself to a new fragrance like the new Chanel, Ariana Grande, or Jessica Simpson perfume you’ve been coveting. Whatever you need to make you feel polished and ready to tackle the day, especially if it’s something you will use often, is worth the splurge – every single time.
DIY Where You Can
If you’re the type of woman who’s constantly juggling a million different balls at once, it’s worth it to try to DIY where you can when it comes to your grooming. Not only does chipped nail polish look unprofessional, but it can also make you feel unkempt, too – remember, when you look good, you feel good. Being able to do your nails and waxing can be a serious time saver on top of being a significant money saver. You put in a lot of hard work to earn that salary, so saving some towards achieving financial freedom is a big bonus. Additionally, you save serious time by not driving to salons, waiting for your technicians, etc.
While everyone loves getting treatments, save your precious time for the treatments you can’t DIY, like lash extensions if you wear them or get your hair done. By doing your treatments at home, you’ll always look put together without having to rely on anyone else.
Get Enough Sleep – No Matter What
While it’s easy to feel like you’re burning the candle at both ends as a working woman, you have to prioritize yourself and your sleep. Not only is sleep critical for your mental health, but it’s also a critical time for your body and brain to heal as well. Sleep is often referred to as the great restorer, and that’s because your body and brain are doing a ton of repair on a cellular level. You may not consider sleeping part of your grooming routine, but it absolutely is and will affect your appearance quickly when you’re not getting enough. So, catch at least eight hours a night – the emails can wait, put your phone on silent.
By implementing the above habits when it comes to your grooming, you’re going to see yourself looking your best and saving valuable time and money. Work as hard on yourself as you do everything else – just make sure you’re working smarter, not harder as you groom like a boss.
