Are you wondering how to get your glow back amidst all the stress of being a busy mom during this especially crazy year? It’s a big deal to try to find doable, healthy skincare routines while managing working from home, kids learning from home, and much of our “normal” being thrown out the window. It’s also extremely important to take care of ourselves as moms—you’ve probably heard this time and time again, the phrase “you cannot pour from an empty cup.” When we take care of ourselves we are more easily able to care for those around us. And, taking care of our skin is also just FUN!
So, where to begin if you are feeling stressed and want to take better care of that beautiful face of yours? Start small! If you are a beginner—do not start by taking on a 10-step routine! All this will likely do is overwhelm and confuse you and you’ll end up right back where you started. What should you do instead? Focus on ONE issue you’d like to start correcting.
Maybe you have acne from mask wearing—start there by introducing a detox mask and exfoliation a few times a week to help purge your skin of excess dirt and oil. Seeing added wrinkles from the additional stress of mom life this year? You are not alone! But again, instead of adding an hour to your nightly routines before bed, consider 1-2 anti-aging products you can easily introduce while you brush your teeth!
Like anything else in life—creating glowing skin free of the negative side effects of stress is a process that is built on consistent, healthy habits. And, those habits do not just come down to the things you use to wash your face! Eating a balanced diet, consistent and adequate water intake, and cutting down on stress in general all contribute to how our skin looks and feels. But, what you do use on your face to cleanse, tone, and moisturize does play a huge role.
Focus on the big things first-daily cleansing, wearing SPF no matter your activities or the time of year, and build from there. Find a way to track your daily usage and maybe even a partner to keep you accountable. You’ve got this, mama, and you will be thrilled at the results you see as you make your skin a priority.
I love this mask because of its simplicity! All I need to do is use it before bed a couple of times a week to see major results in how my skin looks and feels. It's been a game changer for keeping the pesky breakouts at bay.

Plus, exfoliation is super important for our skin for getting rid of the dead and dry stuff on the surface AND for cell turnover.
