The Solution For Busy Mums Who Don’t Have Time For Skincare

The Solution For Busy Mums Who Don’t Have Time For Skincare

Crazy busy between the school run, work, after-school activities, running errands and doing household chores? Wondering when you ever found the time to do more than quickly splash cold water on your face (as much to wake you up as anything else)?

We hear you.

Life as a mum can be super busy, and looking after yourself often comes way down the list. But looking after yourself mentally and physically is important because the better you are, the better parent you can be.

Skincare is an essential part of that self-care. Your skin is your body's biggest organ, and often, skin problems are one of the first signs that something isn't right.

Let's look at why skincare is so important and how you can make a routine happen even when you don't have much time.

The Solution For Busy Mums Who Don’t Have Time For Skincare

Why Is Skincare Important For Mums?

As a Mum, it is more important to look after your skin than ever before. That’s because every year we get a little bit older and your body goes through some pretty massive changes while you are pregnant and when you give birth.

If you are a busy mum, your skin might suffer because:

You are tired

It's probably not possible to find a mum that isn't tired at least some of the time, if not a lot of the time. When you are tired and run down, your skin can suffer. You'll lose your glow, and you might find your skin gets drier or you might get breakouts.

Your hormones are a bit all over the place

Hormones play a huge part in our lives and can also affect your skin. Estrogen, in particular, can have an effect. Lower estrogen levels are associated with lower collagen and hyaluronic acid production - these are the things that help to keep your skin looking firm and plump.

You are getting older

Every day we get a wee bit older. And as we age, we start to see more fine lines and wrinkles. You may also find your skin starts losing its firmness. But, don’t worry. The right skincare can help to combat all of that.

How To Make Time For Skincare

So, what can you do as a busy Mum who knows all those things, but doesn’t have much time to have a shower, let alone introduce a skincare routine?

Here are some easy tweaks you can make to prioritise your skin and wellbeing:

Change your mindset

When you have a hundred things to do as a mum, you might think of skin care as just another job that needs to be ticked off your to-do list. Changing your mindset can encourage you to make time.

Instead of seeing it as a “job”, consider the time you spend on skincare as part of your self-care time. It's essential to take time to regroup and rejuvenate yourself and your skincare routine can be part of that. Your mind and body will thank you for it!

Get into a routine

There will be things in your day that you do on autopilot without questioning them - a morning coffee, a snack in the mid morning. Caring for your skin could become part of that unconscious routine. If you can do your skincare at the same time every day, it helps you to make it a habit. Try doing it in the morning before cleaning your teeth or at bedtime.

Simplify your routine

Before you were a Mum, you probably had hours to think about your hair, makeup and skincare. But now, there are a lot of demands on your time. So, take your skincare back to basics. Instead of collecting hundreds of products and having an elaborate routine, pare it back. Stick to the core skincare processes that will give you the best results.

What's the minimum? Cleanse and moisturise. If you do nothing else, then cleansing and moisturising will help to protect your skin against the stresses of the day and signs of ageing. Sunscreen is important too.

Get the right products

Have you ever noticed how frustrating it is to try and do something when you don't have the right products? Just like trying to bake a cake and realising you don't have any eggs, trying to get into a routine with skincare when you don't have the right products is not going to work.

Having the right products will make you want to use them as they will look, smell and feel amazing too!
