Being a mom is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling roles you can take on in life. But it also means you’re often stretched for time, between shuttling kids to different activities, cleaning the house, and making sure everyone has enough to eat. That can make taking care of yourself a bit of an afterthought.
However, taking the time for self-care is essential for your health and wellbeing. Skin is the largest organ on the human body and needs a bit of extra care and attention. Here are some skincare tips for busy moms to help you stay looking and feeling your best!
Drink Plenty of Water
Keeping your body hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your skin. When your body is dehydrated, your skin can become dry, dull, and prone to wrinkles. To prevent this, it’s recommended that you drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
Get Enough Sleep
Your skin needs time to rest and regenerate. Not getting enough sleep can cause your skin to appear tired, pale, and dull. Aim to get at least seven to eight hours of sleep each night to keep your skin looking and feeling refreshed.
Using sunscreen is extremely important for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and apply it to all exposed skin when you’re going to be outside for more than a few minutes.
Keeping your skin moisturized is essential for keeping it looking and feeling healthy. Look for a moisturizer that is specifically designed for your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, look for a non-comedogenic moisturizer, and if you have dry skin, choose a moisturizer that is more emollient.

Keep Stress Levels in Check
Stress can have a negative impact on your skin health. When you’re feeling stressed, your body releases hormones, such as cortisol, which can lead to breakouts or dry, patchy skin. Try to find ways to manage stress, such as exercise, yoga, or taking a few minutes each day to do something relaxing.
