Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or trying to find the perfect work-life balance amidst caring for your little ones, there’s no denying that being a mom is tough! While you should not feel pressure to keep up with a beauty routine while balancing your parental responsibilities, sometimes keeping up with your beauty routine amidst your busy schedule can keep you looking and, more importantly, feeling good. If you’re a busy mom struggling to prioritize your usual beauty routine, here are a few tips for making it a little easier.
- Prioritize Skincare
To minimize the need for heavy makeup, try focusing on upgrading your skincare routine. Taking good care of your skin will reduce the likelihood of problem spots such as acne, scarring, and dry patches, and will leave your skin with a natural radiance so you can go makeup free. Whether you invest in the luxury serum you’ve been eyeing or treat yourself to a procedure at The Insitute of Natural Health, going the extra mile to care for your skin will leave you looking great and feeling more confident. If you’re new to an in-depth skincare routine, try starting by identifying your skin type and consulting a professional at your local beauty store about what products would be best suited for you.
- Drink More Water
While this might sound like a no-brainer, the truth is that many busy adults forget to drink enough water throughout the day! Water is not only great for your body, but it’s one of the best ways to clear up acne and other problem spots while leaving skin with a natural, lit-from-within glow. Invest in a large, high-quality water bottle that you can carry with you throughout the day to ensure you’re drinking enough. This might not seem like it will make a huge difference, but after time, you will see major improvements in your skin.
- Use Multi-Tasking Makeup
To help cut down on time during your everyday makeup routine, try using multi-tasking products that serve multiple purposes. Using a liquid blush that doubles as a lip stain, a cream bronzer that can be worn as an eyeshadow, or a double-ended brush to apply both of the above can decrease the amount of time you spend digging around in your makeup bag or drawer for different products, therefore saving you some precious time.
Whatever your routine, the saying goes that beauty comes from inside and it’s true. All the make-up in the world doesn’t compare to a smile, and a peaceful spirit. Take time out for yourself sometimes, sit under a tree. Your inner beauty will radiate outwards and make you feel that much better!
