Looking after yourself becomes so much more difficult when you become a Mum for the first time, and the more children you have, the harder it gets.
In part this is because we have less time to spend on ourselves – but another main, contributing factor for me is that I forget – in between attempting to get the children ready for school, tidying up after them and repeating myself a million times of a morning, I forget to moisturise, use primer and straighten my hair.
The struggle is real and my skin suffers as a result.
Here’s a few things you can do to make it just a bit easier…
I don’t just use them to clean up my kids, my car and my entire house – I use them on my face twice a day too. I know, I know – but I’m a no-maintenance mum of two now. I use them to take my make up off – the shame!
Moisturiser with built in primer
This is a game changer. If you can’t fit in all the steps – lose one! No need to worry about waiting for it to dry as you’ll be chasing the kids around thrusting tooth brushes at them anyway.
I find foundation too heavy in hotter weather so during the summer months I opt for a BB Cream instead – use one with SPF to protect yourself from those long awaited rays.
Dealing With Acne
My skin is completely different since having children – I’m blaming all of the many, many sleepless night’s I now get to enjoy, my unhealthy need for caffeine and my new found love of wine. There are many products out there to help combat troublesome acne including Skinoren for acne – No one wants acne – I couldn’t be any further from my teenage self – I’m a mere shadow of that person – so I have no need for pesky acne.
Buy it. Use it. Love it. If you’re not using it – HOW ARE YOU MANAGING? This stuff is a life saver in the morning!
