Skin Care Remedies for busy Mums

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…

Baby Wipes

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.

BB Cream

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.

Dry Shampoo

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!
