If you’re a mum, finding a spare hour - or even a few minutes - to enjoy for yourself can be hard, and you might have found your skincare routine has gone out of the window. It doesn’t make it any less important to take care of your skin though. So, to help you out, we’ve rounded up our top skincare advice for those struggling with time.
Keep your routine simple
It’s easy to get sidetracked with fancy products and do-all tools but if you’re struggling with time, start by finding your favourite skincare products - and sticking to them. After all, if your daily regime is quick and easy to do, you’re more likely to keep doing it.
Our range of CURRENTBODY skin products are suitable for all skin types - even those suffering with sensitivity - and can be used on their own or alongside a beauty device. The collection includes our Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Daily Foaming Cleanser and Daily AHA Tonic, all of which have everything you need for a brighter and clearer complexion.
Find a quick cleanser
Cleansing your skin regularly is a great way to achieve a flawless and radiant complexion. Put simply, cleansing removes the build up of dirt, impurities and oil which can cause breakouts if left. It doesn’t have to take long either. The Clarisonic Mia Smart has a cleansing cycle of just 60 seconds, and can be used when you’re in the bath or shower.
It also cleanses skin 6x better than using your hands alone, and it’s much more environmentally friendly than using wipes. On the off chance that you do get some spare time, routines can also be customised with a range of different heads including those for massaging and anti-ageing.
Use pick-me-up products
We all need a little extra help now and then, and our skin is no different. A facial can be a great way to give your skin the boost it deserves but finding the time to have one is another story. That’s where at-home face masks come in.
The MZ Skin gel sheets help to promote cell repair, even out skin tone, reduce pigmentation and give your skin a luxurious treatment. The mask needs to be left on for 20 minutes to benefit from the full results but it’s easy to wear while continuing with busy mum duties for those who just can’t sit still.
Focus on your eyes
Running on a few hours of sleep? Spend a little TLC on your eyes, and no one will know. Start with your favourite eye cream, massaging it in. If you have time, an eye mask will help to alleviate any puffiness and soothe bags.
If you’re really serious about improving the area around your eyes, then NuFACE’s Fix Line Smoothing Device is just the thing. Harnessing microcurrent, this pen-sized tool can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes. In fact, 97% of users said the area looked instantly firmer. What’s more, each treatment takes just 3 minutes making it an easy addition to your weekly routine.
So there you have it, our best advice and favourite products for busy mums who want to focus on their skincare. If you’re looking to give yourself an extra boost, and treat yourself this Mother’s Day, check out our selection of beauty devices. We think you definitely deserve it.
