The Must-Have Beauty Tools That Will Simplify Your Morning Routine
The rush for the door can seem hours away when you wake up with puffy eyes, frizzy, knotted hair, and a bad case of the Mondays. Luckily, these beauty tools are here to save the day. Start with an exfoliating silicone brush that will give your complexion new life. Wet, tangled hair is no match for the Tangle Teezer—now with a tropical new design just in time for summer. If you’re air-drying, try an anti-frizz microfiber towel for pulling out some of the moisture before letting your tresses do their thing. BaByliss is a favorite of hair stylists, but their Nano Titanium Dryer is a good option for home blowouts without a super hefty price tag. Pair it with the Spornette cushion brush for a smooth blowout every time. Whether you’re straightening or creating loose, beachy waves, the GHD Professional Styler is here for you. You won’t fear the Southern humidity after running your strands between these plates. If big, Southern hair is what you’re after, go with the Volumizing Hot Rollers. Their clips promise to leave your hair crease-free. When the day is done and it’s time to cleanse, grab a Liz Earle muslin cloth. It will gently exfoliate and leave your skin feeling baby soft—the perfect canvas for your nighttime skin regimen.
