As the old saying goes, “If you need to get something done, ask a busy person.” This should apply to your beauty routine. How many times have we fallen asleep with our makeup on, thrown our hands up in defeat after hearing how many steps it should take to properly treat our skin, or claimed we don’t have time for pampering appointments? Obviously, there’s no shame, and everyone has priorities. But, wouldn’t it be nice if we just had a little more extra time to ourselves?
In truth, nobody knows the importance of making time for oneself quite like high-powered women. After all, things only get more chaotic as you climb the ladder, and staying sane (and, let’s be honest, presentable) becomes more and more crucial. That’s why we consulted seven of the busiest women we know — CEOs, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs, doctors — to find out how they fit beauty into their jam-packed schedules. (Warning: Most of them wake up very early.)
Click through for some major productivity motivation. We’re never going to bed with our makeup on again (until Saturday).
