Any other ladies who like wearing makeup at home?
The fact is, if you are a modern woman in the Philippines, you are probably working while caring for your family. Even if you are working from home, you are rarely not connected to the outside world anymore. I'm a working mom myself, although right now I'm working from home. Sometimes, physical meetings come up at a moment's notice and I have to be out the door. I don't have an hour to do my hair, makeup and outfit right then so I just do the bare minimum in the morning and I'm ready for anything! Yup, from groceries to meetings. Then again, my career is pretty casual so a simple routine applies to my life.
Self care is important for me. It helps keep me sane. The funny thing is, the anchor of my sanity, especially in the morning, is a beauty routine!
I'm sure a lot of other women can relate to this. I just feel incomplete if I did not at least fix up my appearance for the day, even if I know I'll just be doing chores around the house. I'm also a mom of two active boys so I definitely feel like an ogre most days. However, I love the feeling of knowing I look presentable at the very least. I've found that on days when I didn't make an effort to make myself look nice, I definitely did not feel nice about myself for the whole day, bordering on feeling sorry for myself. So, I resolved to make it a habit to always do my complete morning skincare routine, put on a bit of makeup, wear some nice casual clothes and get on with the day. I always feel ready for anything when I do this, which makes me happy and lowers my tendency to stress out when unexpected things come up during the day.
Everyone has their own 'thing' to keep them sane and decent. I happen to be a beauty girl and I go cranky without moisturizer!
