  1. Haircut

Nothing can refresh your look better than a good haircut. Talk with your stylist and explain that it has to be easy to manage haircut. Luckily edgy haircut trending so you can pick one of them and don’t worry about styling.

  • Best Quality Concealer

Great beauty tip for busy mother is to invest in the best quality concealer. Not matter if you have a baby, toddler or teenager one thing is for sure you will have periods of time with lack of sleep. The consequences of sleep deprivation can quickly show on your face in the form of black circles under the eyes. A good concealer can cover these eye bags and you will easily have a fresh look.

Because of hormonal misbalance after pregnancy, your skin can be prone to acne or brown spots. To cover these irregularities you can use tinted moisturizers. The advantage of this product is that your face will be hydrated.

  • Lip Stain instead of lipstick

A great tip for busy moms is to pick a lip stain instead of regular lipstick. With lip stain, you don’t have to constantly repair the color, like with lipstick. Additionally, balm-like stains are excellent for chapped lips.

  • Natural Organic Makeup

There are a lot of reasons to switch to natural organic makeup. When you are the mom you are constantly worrying what in 1-minute absence of mind your baby can put in mouth. If you don’t want to risk that full of chemical makeup finish in your newborn belly than natural organic makeup is a perfect choice.

Just to remind you in after pregnancy period you can be more prone to allergies. No chemical ingredients and toxic free makeup can really be a more reasonable option for moms than regular makeup.

  • Low Budget Easy to Make Beauty Products

Believe it or not, you can easily make some beauty products with ingredients that you have in the kitchen. It can be very quick and cheap if you have a recipe. For example, you can mix a little bit of Curcuma spice and olive oil and make a perfect face mask in a couple of seconds. In addition, natural oils like coconut oil or olive oil can be excellent body moistures. Just apply them after showering when your skin can easily absorb them.

  • In-shower Products

Even if you plan everything in advance, as a mom you can really feel that day is to short for everything you have to do. We take seriously this problem of shortage of time and because of that, we recommend you in-shower products. There are a variety of in-shower products in the market like in-shower body lotion, in-shower foot scrubber, in shower cream hair removal and even in-shower hair styler. They are really functional and easy to use.

  • Aromatherapy Products

A great tip for tired moms is aromatherapy products. Senses can really affect how we feel and when your energy level is high your face will illuminate.  We highly recommend Aromatherapy products with Stress Relief features. They can easily energize you.

Two in One product are super efficient and more economical. You can buy hair and body shower, a gel that can work as a body scrubandshower cream that is shower gel and body lotion in one package. They are multi practical, easy to use time efficiently and budget-friendly products.

Experts Can Help Revive Old Floors and Wooden Surfaces! Here’s How

Published

on

By

Many prefer wooden floors for their unique charm and warmth. However, with time, these wooden surfaces can become dull, lose their luster, and wear out, and this is when you need to look for proper restoration techniques that would bring life to the old wooden flooring.

We are about to share restoration tips that will revive your wooden flooring and bring back the beauty of the place.

  • Check the floor condition

Before you start the restoration project, you have to assess the condition of the old wooden floor. Look for signs like water damage, stains, wear, scratches, and holes. Note down all the areas that require repairing. You can also get help from the flooring contractor Tampa Florida, to determine the extent of damage and restore the place effectively.

  • Sanding and refining

In restoration, you must remove the old finishes, imperfections, and scratches through sanding. This would help to reveal the natural surface of the wood. You can use an orbital or drum sander to achieve a smooth finish on the wooden floor. These have fine-grit sandpapers that help with the smoothing process. However, it would help if you did not overdo sanding the place; otherwise, it can create uneven patches. After you are done, apply a fresh finish coat to enhance the color and protect the wooden floor.

  • Repairing damage

Over the years, the wooden floor has undergone different kinds of damage, including water stains and scratches. To get a uniform and polished appearance, you need to repair the imperfections, so if there is any scratch or gouge, fill it with a wood pillar or putty. You can use the sanding technique to smoothen the wooden surface. If there is a water stain, gently sand the affected area and apply the wood bleach to lighten the discoloration. If the damage is quite extensive, then you need to replace the rotten boards to protect the structural integrity of the place.

  • Staining and coloring

To achieve the natural beauty of the wooden floor, you have to apply stain, and on top of that, you have to put in a desired color tone. Go through the existing decor or architectural feature, and based on that, choose a stain that would complement the space. Always conduct a small test before applying that stain to ensure the product will meet your expectations. Use a brush or rag to apply this paint and wait for it to penetrate. Finally, a topcoat is applied to protect and seal the coat.

  • Preserve the character features

Wooden floors are popular due to their appealing elements, such as grain patterns, patina, or knots. You need to retain these character features when restoring old floors and not erase them.

Summing it up

After restoring the wooden floor, remember to maintain it routinely to ensure its long-lasting beauty. Sweep or vacuum dirt and debris daily and gently mop the damp area to keep the wooden floor free from stains. To prevent scratches, you can use protective felt pads under the furniture. Also, make it a habit to avoid walking with heels or shoes on this wood; otherwise, it can damage the wood.
