The other day I went to the dentist, where the hygienist informed me that I needed to devote 3 minutes to brushing my teeth using small circular movements. Evidently, I am too aggressive in my brushing ritual. I smiled sweetly, nodding my head in agreement. Yes, I’m thinking, three minutes to add to my already rushed beauty ritual in the morning.No problemo!
- Hairdresser: apply soothing oil to my tresses
- Nail technician: apply moisturizing hand cream AND rub in cuticle cream/oil
- Pedicurist: apply moisterizing cream to heels
Aesthetician: apply moisturizing face cream and exfoliate
Physician: exercise AND eat oatmeal
Hygienist: brush for 3 minutes in slow circular motion
Lady/Guy at the Mac Counter: use base coat before before applying makeup
Other activities random experts claim we must do:
drink 8 glasses of water
- drink herbal tea
- take B-vitamin supplement
- do yoga
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time for all that stuff. I have a job! I need to leave the house in the morning! I’m not a Kardashian who can spent hours on consuming beauty rituals.
I told my husband something had to give, that there’s simply not enough time in my day to get done everything I should ( moisturizing takes time). I’m thinking about eliminating grocery shopping from my daily activities–and cooking.
What’s your favorite or least favorite beauty ritual!
