5 Products Every Tired Workaholic Should Own

Written by the_chelf@yahoo.gr

Are you a Workaholic?

You’re tired, overworked and plan to keep on,keeping on. I get it. I’ll keep it short.

I do not have any advice on how to manage it all, I’m probably way worse than you, but here are 5 essential beauty products that will make your life a tiny bit easier so that you can get back to work.

1  A powerful illuminating moisturiser with light reflecting properties. They call them glotions.

This one by LIERAC is particularly good and works well as a make-up base as well so that you won’t have to be bothered with primer. You know those nights where you  had to go to bed early but just had to finish another project and reply to another email and then brainstorm for future ventures? That is the kind of cream you want to use the morning after.


2  A Quick Blow-Dry hair Lotion.

These products are amazing! They speed up blow drying time so not only you save time but they also reduce friction and protect your hair from the heat. And you get that super sleek salon-finish without spending a small fortune.

Afterall, you work so hard, why waste your money at the hair replacement salon when you could take advantage of that time to sneak in some more work.  Yes, I’m being sarcastic, you are welcome.

3 A long lasting, high quality Nude Nail Polish.

Dark polishes are harder both to apply and to maintain. If they chip you’ll have to remove the nail polish and redo your manicure. Who has time for that? A perfect nude on the other hand, not only looks heavenly chic, it is much easier to apply and you can usually get away with one coat only. And when it chips noone will know. Just apply another coat focusing on the area that chipped and smooth it out with the brush. Fresh and lovely!

4  A 10-minute face mask.

Perfect for multi-tasking. Put your face mask on and pick a 10-minute errand to run ( around the house please and thank you). Vacuum, update your planner, reply to a couple of e-mails and rinse it off. You’ll glow of satisfaction (of being so productive in just 10 minutes and all )

This one by Apivita is cooling and hydrating and is infused with sea lavender which moisturizes in depth, enhances collagen production and rejuvenates skin.  Moreover it’s free of chemicals harmful to human health and/or the environment. So in just ten minutes you managed to save the world. And do the laundry. Kudos.

5  Last but not least the multi-tasking hero you can relate to: The coconut oil.

The beauty holy grail that everyone should own. Hair, face body, lips you name it, they need it.

It’s natural, vegan and very efficent. Just like you. Why wouldn’t you want to have another you in your super busy life?



I hope you’ve found this post helpful! Ok, now back to work.
