Timing is everything
Keep track of the amount of time you spend ‘grooming’, and stop at 45 minutes. That’s the most it should ever take to shower, take care of your skin, apply make-up and style your hair.
Any longer, and you need to get an easier haircut, use less make-up and cut down to one skincare product.
A close shave
Shave slowly, with short strokes, and rinse the blade often in hot water. Your skin is not flat, so long strokes increase your chances of cuts or scrapes.
Try not to press down with the blade, especially around sensitive areas.
If you have no time for a shower but need to be at your freshest, fill your sink with water and add 4 tablespoons of sodium bicarbonate. Then dip a sponge or washer in the sink and rub yourself down.
