Skin Care Tips for Mothers

Most people endeavor to put their best face forward, but for busy moms, having a consistent, healthy skin care routine can often take a backseat.  It is vital to make this a priority as early in life as possible, and here are some suggested tips to keep in mind……

Drink Plenty of Water

The first important thing that can help your skin glow is to drink plenty of water. Carry a water bottle as you go out ‘n about….and try to drink regularly throughout the day.  If you work from home or are on the computer a lot, keep one handy so you may conveniently sip.

This routine is important to follow because even if you apply the most expensive skincare creams, they will not prove effective unless you drink plenty of water daily.  Good hydration is vital for good skin health and beyond.  If you don’t tire of the taste of regular water, you might try adding some lemon or other fruit slices, and even fresh mint.

Avoid Junk Food

This may sound obvious…..but the healthier you eat, the better your skin will look. Consider organic food like veggies, fresh meat, fruits, and milk.

Dermatologists also recommend avoiding unhealthy food for all who have oily skin. Fresh vegetables help in improving the digestive system because they detoxify the body and improve overall health.

Exercise Regularly

Our body detoxifies when we sweat during exercising, and this is a reason nutritionists often recommend mothers take regular brisk walks or do their best to squeeze in exercise despite the demands of parenthood. There are many exercise programs available via Apps and videos to watch on YouTube and Instagram. You don’t need to frequent a gym to maintain fitness. It’s about commitment and accountability.  If it helps, try to recruit an exercise buddy or take an online class.

Apply Quality Sunscreen

You should leave the house on a sunny day without applying quality sunscreen on your face, hands, and arms.  The sun’s rays can be very damaging, so you want to protect yourself.

Use a Good Moisturizer

Dry skin can be a challenge for many, especially when it is extremely cold outside.  Make sure to follow a routine as you should apply moisturizer at least twice a day.  As an aside, some adults may experience occasional breakouts, and an Acne spot treatment can be helpful in this case.  They contain micronized benzoyl peroxide gel for helping to keep the skin free from acne.

Breathe in Fresh Air

Fresh air is important in everyone’s life because it, too, affects health and skin. Take your child out for a walk in a non crowded area, and you both will gain.

Drink Fresh Juices

Fresh juices also help in improving skin health…and you want to drink caffeinated beverages in moderation.

Vitamin C is important for skin, so keep on hand fresh juices including oranges, grapefruit, and pomegranate, which can be great on their own or in smoothies.

Wash Off Makeup at Bedtime

Often busy moms don’t bother to wash makeup off before going to bed after a long day.  You want to choose a quality cleanser for washing the face especially before sleeping.  Makeup can affect pores badly if you keep it on your face for a long time, so it’s worth the extra effort at bedtime.  Your skin will thank you.
