10 Beauty Must-Haves For The Busy Bee

Female professionals play a huge role in Malaysia’s workforce. And just like everywhere else, a career woman has to be an expert in juggling her work life and personal life. However, female professionals often don’t have time in taking care of themselves. They don’t even have time on figuring out which beauty items they should purchase. If you’re one of the many busy career women in Malaysia, here are 10 must-have beauty items you need to have in your arsenal. Foldable slip-on. Wearing high heels at the office can take its toll on your feet. While there are many stylish flats that are perfect for the office, many women still prefer power heels. Foldable slip-ones are great because you can easily reduce them to the size of a smartphone, slip them inside an accompanying pouch and throw them in your handbag. Rehydrating facial spray. Computer stress coupled with staying indoors for hours can make your skin look dry and lifeless. While you can always wash your face, you won’t have enough time to re-do your full makeup during lunch time. The best solution is to have a rehydrating facial spray handy for that quick pick-me-up anytime. Dry shampoo. A busy schedule is not a good reason to show up at work with bad hair. But most women don’t have time to do the whole wash-blow dry-style routine in the morning. Moreover, it’s not healthy to wash your hair every single day. Dry shampoo is a busy woman’s best friend. It helps absorb not just oil but also odors and dirt from your scalp. Best of all, it gives your...
