If you’re like me, you’re on the go most of the time… working, taking care of family members, exercising, and handling various responsibilities on a daily basis.

Simple skin care and fashion secrets to look and feel your best for success!
If you’re like me, you’re on the go most of the time… working, taking care of family members, exercising, and handling various responsibilities on a daily basis. And while we try to live a healthy lifestyle, unexpected events often come up where we just need a little something “extra” to look and feel our very best. Whether it’s a big job-interview, meeting, date with someone special, or another activity, what can you do when this happens?
Here are my favorite, on-the-go beauty tips to help you look and feel more successful at your last-minute event!
Simple Skincare for Fast, Glowing Skin
Are you ready to make a great, first-impression with glowing skin, or could your complexion use a little help?
I don’t know about you, but when I clean my face, I instantly feel refreshed. My favorite, skin pick-me-up is the Foaming Facial Cleanser. Just add two pumps to your hands, and massage the soap in a circular motion from your forehead down the rest of your face. You’ll remove all of the dirt, make-up, and impurities while unclogging pores. The fresh scent is invigorating, and it’s actually fun to wash away your stress with the fluffy, white foam!
After rinsing and gently drying your face, add your favorite, facial moisturizer to hydrate your skin. Your face will have a healthy, energetic glow. (And ladies, you now have a smooth, clean base for applying natural-looking make-up appropriate for your event.)
If you have time, I recommend you use a skin exfoliator and night cream too. Feel free to use the products you are most comfortable with, but I love the Age Defying Exfoliating Scrub and the Restorative Night Cream. The exfoliating scrub helps remove dead skin cells, refine pores and even out skin tone. Plus, it’s all natural so I don’t need to worry about plastic microbeads hurting my skin or polluting the oceans!
And the Restorative Night Cream has a unique combination of Omega 3 and 6, antioxidants, vitamins, and rich, tropical butters. No matter how horrible I may look at the end of a long day, I use this before bed and wake up with an energized, well-rested appearance.
Quick Fashion Tips to Look Your Best
Once your skin is ready to go, it’s time to figure out what to wear. If you are staring into your closet and feeling a bit overwhelmed, remember to keep it simple. Think about what you’ll be doing, weather conditions and the image you want to portray.
For business events, start with a plain, well-tailored suit, skirt and blouse, or dress. Then, add a sense of style, color and personal flair with a tie, scarf, sweater, or jewelry. And don’t forget to check your teeth, hair, nails, and shoes before you leave to ensure your look is clean, polished and professional.
If you are going on a casual date, choose an ironed, collared shirt or blouse with pants or jeans that flatter your personal, body shape. Then add heels or a nice pair of comfortable shoes for walking or dancing. While you may want to wear something that’s a bit too tight or revealing to be more “sexy,” be careful. You may end up looking heavier, shorter, messy, or just plain silly!
Instead, stick to clothes that fit well and are appropriate for your particular age. Remember, just because something is a fashion “trend,” or it has been hiding in your closet for several years, doesn’t mean you need to wear it. Think about your personal style and what makes you comfortable and confident. Then, you’ll look and feel sexier than ever!
Simple Skin Care and Fashion Secrets for On the Go Success
When it comes to last-minute events, don’t get overwhelmed! Instead, take a deep breath, relax and start with simple skin care. Clean your face and moisturize for a fresh, glowing appearance.
And for your outfit, stick to the basics. Choose a tailored suit, blouse and skirt or dress for business events, or a nice shirt and well-fitted jeans or pants for more causal activities. You can add your own personal flair with colorful and unique accessories.
The key is to feel fresh, confident and comfortable. Then you can relax and be ready for success… no matter how much time you have to prepare for your last-minute event!
