Drying Nails Quickly
You need to dry your nails in the most effective and quick manner but you are stuck with a blow dryer! This problem is common among most working women. A smarter tip is to use a small bowl of icy water. Dip your painted fingernails into it for about two minutes and see the magic work.
Using Face Wipes
No matter how expensive is your foundation or any other touch-up you have used to ensure that you look fresh at an office meeting or party; the hot & humid climate can ruin the effort. Rather than using too many cosmetics, it is better to keep a few face wipes handy. These are a better substitute for washing your face and redoing the entire make-up. Just dab the face repeatedly with non-scented, hypo allergic facial wipes. This also ensures that the make-up is kept in place and you appear fresher.
Invest Minimally in Eye Make-Up
Most women tend to invest too much time in their eye make-up forgetting that after a few layerings, the effect is marginal. Thus, overdoing it when short on time doesn't make sense-it is better to use basic, quickly-done eye make-up with eyeliners. You can use a bit of mascara to complete the dressed-up look.

Smarter Shampooing Helps
If you have to shampoo, don't stress upon washing the entire length of your hair. Wash the scalp and roots only. This is where everybody's attention goes, i.e. the top of your mane. This is where all the grime gets collected. This is a great way to save time in the shower and makes sense when you are struggling to reach somewhere in time. Just rinse the rest of the hair and you will find your showering time cut by half!!
If you are adamant about keeping your curls intact, you need to save some time, during the night. Use a sock bun. Here, you need to slice-off toes of a sock and roll it in the shape of a doughnut. You can call this a sock-shaped doughnut. Just damp your hair. Tie the hair into a high ponytail. Now, position the doughnut-shaped sock around the ponytail. You need to sleep with the sock bun which might be slightly uncomfortable at first but then you will get used to it. The rounded ponytail unfurls into big curls when you take-off the bun during the morning.
