As a busy mom, there are chances that you are slacking on your skincare routine.
Now that you’re entering motherhood, skincare routine should be given more attention. It will not only help with hormonal changes and postpartum stress, but it is also great for your self-esteem and mood. When you are in a hurry with no time to go through your routine, you can reduce the time you spend on your face daily by following this quick skin care routine to make you look more awake and refreshed even though you may not feel it.
It is necessary that you wash your face before you sleep and when you wake up in the morning. During sleep, your skin glands are producing oil. You can get a product that is gentle on your skin to ensure that you get the best experience while removing dirt and grime from your skin. Remove all the mascara and eyeliner without any residue with a good facial wipe or cleanser to ensure the skin is free from dirt, grime or makeup.
Dry Facial Brushing
After pulling off an all-nighter, it is possible that you’ll wake up with a puffy face. You can easily fight this by using a facial dry brush just immediately after you wake up. It will only take a few minutes, and the brush will help you to move fluid away from the face and also increase blood circulation. It will also help you in stimulating your nervous system which will help you feel more awake.
Exfoliation is essential to give yourself bright and glowing skin. By definition, exfoliation is the removal of dead or dry skin cell from the skin. By exfoliating your skin on a regular basis, probably 3-4 times a week, the size of your pores will decrease, and your skin will be glowing and smoother. You should also remember to do it every after facial cleansing and that you should exfoliate gently.
Apply A Firming Cream
After cleansing and toning your skin, you can take care of your face by applying a firming eye cream that will help you tighten up the under eye area and also help reduce its puffiness. Apart from that, dark circles can also be improved by proper diet, the right cover-up and getting enough sleep.
Moisturizing is the final step when it comes to a daily skincare routine. Apply a good moisturizer followed by an SPF for protection from the sun. A good skin cream will do an excellent job of hydrating your skin without making it look greasy. You can try searching online for products that are confirmed by dermatologists as hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin which would not clog your pores. Some skins have the chance of a break out if products that are too heavy are applied to them so its essential you choose one that soothes your skin.
There you have a simple, comfortable 5-minute routine that will keep your skin glowing to help you feel great and get a perfect day.
