I've just started my first year at high-school in January, and it's been alot of fun so far with new friends and classes and asdfghjkl! But it takes up alot more energy than primary school and you do not even want to know how many times I've been late to homeform so far.
I know that some girls in older grades seem really rushed and stressed at school, so I'm here to give you some quick cheats for things you don't have time to do anymore ^____^
#1: You haven't washed your hair in foreeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeerrr.
Use dry shampoo. As the name suggests, it acts like shampoo, but there's no need to use water whatsoever.
Shampoo rinses and washes away sebum and dirt, while dry shampoo only absorbs it, and then you comb the shampoo out, so it is still necessary to shampoo and rinse your hair, dry shampoo is for when you just don't have enough time or your hair seems especially oily.
I would recommend Batiste Dry Shampoo [comes in different smells, very cheap] and Klorane Oat Milk Dry shampoo [a tad more expensive, some reviews says smell is disgusting, works well].
#2: You've just finished PE, you're late for your next class and you look like a giant mess.
You don't have enough time to shower and you're mascara and eyeliners running, and you look like a stinky, sad little panda. No worries, just clean up your look a bit with these quick items: Firstly, put in some dry shampoo in the oily parts of your hair, and then tie your hair back up into a high ponytail, to avoid getting even dirtier. Use a facial wipe to clean makeup away and to remove dirt and oil from your face so you won't get clogged pores which leads to pimples. I recommend using Clean and Clear Deep Cleansing Facial Wipes.
Then use some body wipes for 'down there', but be sure to buy a reliable brand which will be gentle for your skin. Finally, use deodorant [duhh]. If you sweat alot, use a 'specialty' roll-on deodorant, and then spritz your favourite smelling deodorant all over your body, and you should be good to go!
#3: Not enough time in the morning to do your normal makeup routine?
Improvise a little to save yourself time, if you don't have time to put on foundation, use a tinted moisturiser instead [pick your favourite brand]. If you really don't have time to put on your mascara and eyeliner, try tightlining your eyes for a more natural but still effective look. Tightlining is where you only line your lash-base, not your waterline. Line the skin where your lashes come from, but only line to the middle of your eye, not to the inner corner. Also, put on some creme blush in the car and double it as lip-colour, or just use a tinted lip-balm.
Well, there you go!
Three easy ways to save time when you're in a rush for school.
