Being busy is no new concept, it has become a cornerstone of modern living and an expected part of our lives. So, in the spirit of time-saving (because who doesn’t love a good hack?) we scoured the Mamamia office and sought the best tips when it comes to saving time for dressing up, when the clock isn’t on your side. Why didn’t someone tell us these sooner?
1. Dry shampoo.
Washing, drying and styling your hair is sometimes a challenge so large that cancelling your plans and opting for a night on the couch is much more tempting. There’s an easy and cheap way to get around it. Dry shampoo is a godsend when last minute plans are made and your hair is between washes. Make it a staple in your makeup bag, and you’ll never face the go out or couch night debate again.
2. Make shaving easy.
When life is getting busy, shaving your legs may become somewhat of a luxury. Instead of only shaving below the knees (guilty) or throwing on a pair of tights (also guilty), show your legs some love – and light – and skip the shaving gel with the Schick Intuition razor. The Schick Intuition razor lathers, shaves and moisturises during shaving – and all in one easy step.

3. Go bright.
If you’ve got approximately 30 seconds to make yourself presentable, picking a bold lip colour is the only way to go. It instantly makes you look put together and shaves time off your beauty routine. Swipe, blot and done.
