Whether we like it or not, summer is winding down and rather quickly. This means that it is back to school time for the kiddos. Moms don’t always have time to get ready in the morning and girls often find that their current beauty routine takes way too much time. Here are some great back to school beauty hacks for moms and young girls alike.
Back to School Beauty Hacks For Mom
Use lemon juice for sweat stains
If you notice sweat stains on your clothing when you do the weekly laundry, just add some lemon juice to the washing machine before you start the wash cycle. Sweat marks will be gone and will stay gone for good.
Use baby powder for your lashes
Before putting on mascara in the morning, dust your lashes with a cotton ball dipped in baby powder. This will give your lashes a thicker look when you put your mascara on.
Braids and beach waves
You don’t need to spend a ton of time in the morning using a hair curler. Instead, at night before you go to bed, wet your hair and braid it into small braids. In the morning, use a hair straightener to go over the braids, take the braids out and you will have beach waves in an instant.
Use a sandwich bag to stretch out new shoes
If you have new shoes, you know how much of a pain they can be to break in. Solution? Fill two sandwich bags with water and add one to each shoe. Then, toss them in the freezer overnight and you will find by morning, they have stretched out a bit.
Give your bangs a wash
If you don’t have time to wash your hair in the morning but your bangs look a bit stringy, just wash your bangs. Put your hair, except your bangs, in a ponytail. Wash and rinse your bangs over the sink and you are ready to go.
