for Busy Moms
by APTO, October 10, 2022
>Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom to a busy toddler or a working mom to on-the-go high schooler, being a parent is a full-time job. Between drop-offs and meal prep, homework and bath time, it can be hard to find time to take care of yourself! But being a busy mom shouldn’t mean you have to sacrifice the health of your skin—which is why we’re sharing our top 5 tips for busy moms.
>#1: NAIL DOWN YOUR ROUTINE
Sometimes the most time-consuming part of taking care of your skin is figuring out what you should be using! Instead of reaching for a different lotion or potion each time you’re in the bathroom, create a tried-and-true ritual that really works for your skin. Need a place to start? We recommend the classic two-step regimen of cleansing and moisturizing, AM and PM.>#2: ELIMINATE & STREAMLINE
Now that you’ve nailed down your basics, it’s time to streamline your skin regimen. Have 15 cleansers? Toss the ones you don’t love and stick to the one that works best for your skin. If this exercise feels too daunting, look at your lineup of products and throw away any you haven’t used in the last three months. (Ahem, you should definitely toss that serum you bought in the throes of 2020 Covid lockdown!)>#3: RELY ON MULTI-TASKERS
When you’re a busy mom, products that do multiple things are your holy grail. For example, our Turmeric Mist refreshes, hydrates and energizes skin, plus can be used to do things like set makeup and add essential moisture throughout the day. Look for hardworking products like this one to help you do more with less.>#4: TAKE YOUR PRODUCTS ON-THE-GO
Have no time to do a full skincare routine at home? No worries! Products like our Orange Blossom Lip Balm fit easily into your bag, making it all that much easier to apply them while you’re navigating the pick-up line at school.>#5: DESIGNATE ONE DAY AS “MASK DAY”
Exfoliating properly is essential for maintaining proper skin health. Clogged pores can lead to blemishes and breakouts as well as skin dullness. Designate one day—a weekend or a weekday evening—as “mask day” and treat skin to a purifying experience, so you have clear skin all week. Need a good option? Reach for our Turmeric Mask.
