Ever feel like you don’t know what a godly man is looking for in a wife? Our Irresistible Godly Woman Checklist will give you clear insights so you can stop guessing and start preparing … while reaching your full potential as a single Christian woman.

Your appearance speaks volumes

What is your personal brand? When a person first sees you, what impression does he/she immediately have of you? Do you look like a confident put-together woman? Are you enhancing your natural beauty?

Believe it or not, you are judged by your appearance and the truth be told, you also judge others by the way they look. Before a person sees your heart, they see your appearance.

  • Does your hair look neat or untidy?
  • Are your clothes ironed or do you look like you just rolled off the bed and strolled right into your office?
  • As someone passes by, do you have a pleasant clean scent or is your body odor offensive?

Self-care is important

As a single woman, self-care needs to become a habit. It shows that you value yourself and that you’re a wise steward of your body. But as a busy professional, where can you find the time?

I know what it feels like to have a super crazy life. Therefore, I have had to implement little quick strategies to keep myself looking my best (most of the times). You too may not have a whole lot of dedicated time to beautify yourself, but by adding little daily routines that take less than a minute, your beauty can shine through.

Here are some daily ‘beauty in a minute’ tips that I’ve discovered that are quick and easy to do:

1) Smooth clean heels…beauty in a minute!

The buildup of dead skin under the feet can become hard and unsightly over time. Every morning, I use a pumice stone on my heels to remove dead dry skin. It is the last step of my shower routine so that the pumice stone can be applied to softened skin. You can either use it when your feet is lathered with soap or when your feet is simply wet. Either way works for me. Select the time of day that suits you best. Guess what…it takes less than a minute!

Needed: Pumice stone & water

Tip: Store the pumice stone in the bathroom within arm’s reach.  Otherwise, you may be prone to forget.

2) Long nails…beauty in a minute!

Nail technicians charge a lot.  I have had acrylic nails three times for short spurts. After every instance, I told myself ‘never again’. The last time that I did it, my nails were so brittle that it took over 6 weeks to recover.

On several occasions, I’ve grown out my nails naturally by applying olive oil throughout the day. This painless routine has saved me money, time and discomfort. You need a bottle of olive oil or another type of oil. Apply the oil often especially before you go to bed. Unless you have a medical condition, you’ll be sporting your own lovely long nails in no time! That too takes less than a minute.

Needed: Olive oil (or another alternative oil)

Tip: Have a little bottle next to your bed and carry a small bottle in your handbag.

3) Soft lips…beauty in a minute!

Before I retire to bed at nights, I apply lip balm. I wake up with soft lips and it takes less than a minute daily.

Needed: Lip balm or oil

Tip: Place it next to your bed or on your dresser.  Choose a place where it can be within your reach when you settle into bed.

4) Healthy hair…beauty in a minute!

I’ve been massaging my hair daily and it is so therapeutic. One minute is better than no minute. Scalp massages promote hair growth. As an added bonus, scalp massages also act as a stress reliever. It can be done in a minute, but you’d like it so much, you just might extend it to 5 minutes. But who’s counting?!? You can use your own fingers or invest in an electronic scalp massager.

Needed: Your fingers or an electronic scalp massager

Tip: I massage my scalp while I’m doing a mundane task like listening to music or watching TV.

5) Glowing skin…beauty in a minute!

You can take less than 1 minute to drink a glass of water.  Therefore, you need a maximum of 8 minutes daily to drink 8 glasses of water. That’s a small price to pay for beauty! I bought a 4-cup glass bottle which I placed on my work desk to save myself the hassle of 7 refills. It has also helped me to track my water consumption. When you’re going on the road, why not carry a water bottle with you?

I met one of my aunt’s friends that I hadn’t seen in years and she was looking very young. Honestly, she didn’t look like she had aged in over 10 years. Of course, I had to ask her about her beauty secrets. She said that she drinks at least 12 cups of water (8 ozs = 1 cup) throughout the day.  

From my own experience, my skin looks healthier and rosy when I consume at least 8 glasses of water daily.

Needed: Water and water bottles (32-ozs water bottle and an 20-oz water bottle)

Tip: Place a large water bottle on your desk for easy and quick access. When you’re going on the road, carry your water bottle filled with water.

6) Smooth face…beauty in a minute!

Try removing dead skin cells and dirt on your face by GENTLY applying an exfoliating cream/scrub 1-3 times weekly. Your makeup foundation will be applied easily and your skin will ‘glow’. I usually add Baking Soda to my cream cleanser, Aveeno Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser at least once a week. Remember to be gentle because your face is very delicate.

An electronic cleansing brush like, Clarisonic Mia Prima 1-Speed Sonic Cleansing Brush, is also a good alternative. It is said that the Clarisonic Mia cleanses 6 times better than your hands alone. I bought one a few years ago and I love it!

Needed: Baking Soda and a cream cleanser like Aveeno Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser and/or Clarisonic Mia Prima 1-Speed Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush

Tip: Place a small container of baking soda in your bathroom for this purpose.

7) Soft heels…beauty in a minute!

Apply a foot cream (or whatever lotion you have) on your feet before you go to bed and then wear a pair of socks overnight. An old pair will do just fine. When you wake up in the morning, your feet will be well-moisturized and soft.

Needed: Foot cream or body lotion and a pair of socks

Tip: Place these items close to your bed.

NOTE: It seems like lots of items need to be close to the bed! haha

8) Scented lady…beauty in a minute!

I personally believe that a woman should look good and smell good. For a lasting scent throughout the day, you can apply your favorite perfume to your bra and maybe even your undies. The fragrance will last much longer on fabric than on your skin. Skip this tip if you’re allergic to fragrances. In that case, regular showers would suffice.:)

Needed: Your favorite perfume or body spray or fragrance mist

Tip: None … just remember to spray it on your underwear (bra and panties).

Final thoughts

You don’t have to spend copious amounts of time beautifying yourself. As you practice self-care, your confidence will begin to grow even more. Remember, confidence is like a magnet. 

You can have smooth clean heels, long nails, soft lips, healthy hair, glowing skin, smooth face, soft heels, and smell beautifully.
