As my friends who have young kids tell me, nap time is a precious gift from the heavens. It’s a chance to sit down, have a bite, maybe finish that coffee you’ve been microwaving all morning… or maybe even take a nap yourself! That is, if your kids aren’t so darn cute that you photograph their adorable naps.
You can really do a lot during your children’s nap time if you put your mind to it (and practice… a LOT), including this half-hour pampering routine designed by mother and lifestyle expert Jordan Reid. I am already obsessed with Jordan for her genius hacks to make lipstick last, but this action-packed half-hour spa session truly blew me away.
Jordan carefully executes her beauty treatments in a precise order that lets her fit an unbelievable amount into her kids’ half-hour nap. Seriously: she fits in teeth whitening with whitening strips, a hydrating hair treatment with a deep conditioner, exfoliating, a face mask, showering, a mini manicure, tanning, eyebrow care, and a leave-in hair treatment in just 30 minutes!
You really have to see it to believe it, and I’m definitely going to give it a try the next time I have a half-hour free. It might take a few tries to get it all down so quickly, but mastering it might just unlock the secret to express beauty.
Check out how she does it, and please SHARE this video with your friends and family who might like some express pampering!
