If there’s one thing moms are short on, it’s time. Between after-school events, birthday parties, being the children’s shuttle service and still trying to tick off the tasks on your own to-do list, it is no secret mums are some of the busiest people around.
But before you let that hectic, over packed schedule stop you from taking proper care of your skin, I have some simple, time saving tips for you to incorporate into your daily routine.
Try these simple tips and remember!
“I regret taking such good care of my skin – said nobody”
Set Aside Time Aside for Your Simple Essential Routine –
Okay, I own a skincare manufacturing business, so I have a large collection of products in my bathroom. But how many of us use all the products in our skincare cabinet regularly? I know I don’t!
So, my first piece of advice is having a spring clean and throw out all those products you don’t use regularly.
My essentials include: a foaming cleanser, exfoliant, moisturiser/serum, eye cream and of course sunscreen.
I also love our Bees Brilliance Manuka Honey facial mask, and never go a week without giving my skin a 20-minute boost of hydration. Your essentials most probably will be different to mine, it all depends on your skin type.
Keep your routine simple and stress-free.
Yes, it is important to cleanse your face morning and night……and you may say “but I don’t have time”. But if there is one thing you have time for, it is to cleanse morning and night time.
Washing your face before you go to bed, not only helps remove the external pollutants from the day, it helps prevent the aging process. “When makeup is left on, it blocks the natural exfoliating process, which can leave your skin looking dull”, says Dr. Robins Ashinoff, Director of Cosmetic Dermatology at Hackensack Medical Center in New Jersey.
It’s just as important to cleanse again in the morning, even though you are thinking “but I haven’t done anything to make my face unclean?”. Morning cleansing helps to remove unwanted dead skin cells, any excess sebum and prepares the skin for the day ahead.
An easy-to-use every day cleanser is our “Bees Brilliance Manuka Honey Foaming Cleanser” – learn more about it here.
Multi-Functional Products Are Your Friend –
When I talk about multi-functional products you probably think of BB Creams, a one-stop shop for coverage, moisture and sunscreen. Another is our recently launched Bees Brilliance Instant Hydra Firming Shot, a lightweight but SUPER instant hydrating, firming and protecting gel cream.
This is my ultimate lazy routine product. An antioxidant support complex allowing protection against environmental damage to better preserve youthful skin. It provides immediate and long term skin hydration, as well as an instant tightening perceivable effect that minimises micro-signs of ageing. You will see a softer, healthier, natural glow given from a blend of botanically-sourced lipids developed specifically to deliver the skin-lipid profile of a healthy 22-year-old.
