Time is a valuable and sometimes scarce commodity when it comes to dedicating it to our care and beauty routine. When in a hurry, women need products designed for fast care and styling which will help them look good while on the move. Luckily, there’s a whole range of express multi-tasking products to avoid a beauty S.O.S…

Skin 
Let’s face it: who wouldn’t want 5 more minutes in bed and a more simplified skincare routine? Serums are your saviour! The fast-care favourite quickly absorbs into your skin and has an immediate visible calming effect thanks to the heightened concentration of active ingredients. It also reduces the signs of stress and makes for an ideal foundation primer thanks to its light texture.Alternatively, a BB-, CC- or DD-cream also makes sure your complexion look naturally beautiful, while also providing great skin care because it unites make-up and daily care functions. The great advantage is that most of them contain SPF, meaning no need to worry about skin damage during the summer. For smaller skin corrections for when you’re on the move you can use a concealer, which also works wonderfully as eye shadow primer.

Make-up 
Use your time on the train well, and dedicate it to make-up. Luckily mascara, eyeliner and lipstick easily slip into your handbag! Surely you can find a little room in a side compartment for the bronzing powder, too? Not only does it give your skin a healthy glow, but it can also showcase your eyes by adding a bronze hue to your eyelids. Lipstick helps frame not only the lips, but also the cheeks, giving them extra freshness. Now just slick on the mascara and the natural look is done! To finish off the base, make sure that the make-up stays put with a little compact powder or thermal water spray.
Hair 
When you barely have time for a shower, you’ll need imagination for a good hair-do. If you wash but have no time to blow dry, add a serum or styling cream to avoid frizz.Dry shampoo is another great hair hack, so we don’t need to deploy super skills when time is an issue. Dry shampoos are great to use when your hair isn’t fresh – after the club or after a workout, for example. You only freshen up your hair, and give it some volume and grip. The process is easy: just spray the dry shampoo into your hair, let it work its magic for a few minutes, then brush away the rest. Why not carry a hair mist to freshen up throughout the day, or even better, add a sprinkle of your favourite perfume?
Body 
While hair and make-up issues are easily solved when you’re on the move, there’s little you can do for the body that’s as good as the care it receives at home. But luckily there are two things you can combine: especially when you’re travelling, in-shower body lotions are really practical. Instead of skipping the moisturizer, special in-shower body milk and body lotions will get the job done in half the time! Take care of unwanted hairs with a compact razor, or opt for an in-shower depilatory cream with built-in essential oils.
