I fell in love with ingredient-rich skincare after I became a mama and my skin changed for the worse. I discovered a daily skin care routine that gave me a nourished, glowy complextion - and I never went back to dull skin again.
Let’s be real. We busy women want a skincare regime to be simple – but splashing water on your face and applying all-over body lotion on your cheeks just isn’t going to cut it. In order to have healthy skin, you have to use the right products at the right time. The right skin care routine will help you:
Look more radiant and have healthier skin
Decrease Puffiness, dark spots, fine lines, and dark circles.
Wake up every day with smooth, hydrated, and energized skin
Following a skin care routine might take a few extra minutes out of your day, but I promise y’all, these amazing benefits will make it allllll worth it!
1 | Fast Results
Unlike crunches or squats, you don’t have to wait months and months to start seeing results from a daily skin care routine. Simply dabbing on a night cream before you go to bed can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and inflammation on your face. Our skin actually works pretty hard at night rejuvenating skin cells, so helping it work faster, smarter, and quicker is a win-win.
2 | “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”
I’ll be the first to admit a daily skincare routine seems like a chore at first. That being said - it’s waaaaay easier to maintain healthy skin than it is to treat problems after they rear their ugly (black)heads. After a long day sahm-ing, it’s extremely tempting to skip the nightly face wash and moistruizer and fall into bed to enjoy the stillness of a sleeping house. But skipping this step leaves dirt and oil in your pores, and that can lead to acne in the morning. I’m not saying breakouts don’t happen, this is a fact of life - especially if you have hormones. That pimple shows up, we pop it, cover it up with concealer, put acne cream on it, and maybe we’re left with a dark spot or worse, a scar. Ugh. Prevention is key! Plus, once we skip it a few times, we fall out of the habit. So keep your skin looking it’s best by committing to a simple routine.
3 | Prevents Aging
Admit it – we are not as young as we once were. And that’s ok! Getting older DEFINITELY has its perks. But skin resilience is not one of them. And because you only have one lovely face, you need to take care of it. Regular skincare, facials, serums, and facial massage can all boost cell regeneration and promote collagen development. This gives you younger looking skin, and the radiance you naturally lose over time.
4 | Healthy skin actually is important
As much as we focus on the appearance of our skin, it’s easy to glaze over the important role our skin plays in our overall health. Skin is the biggest organ in the human body. It is the barrier that protects us from the hot and cold, germs, and toxins. Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong. When your skin gets dry or irritated by harsh soaps, cracks in the skin can occur. Cracks in the skin make a person more prone to infection. When we work to keep our skin healthy, we get years and years of protection from this amazing organ in return.
5 | Boosts Your Confidence
If you’ve never had amazing, glowy, healthy skin, let me tell you—it’s a game-changer.
A daily skin care routine can drastically reduce some of your biggest insecurities. Whether it’s persistent acne, age spots, puffiness, wrinkles, or sun damage - achieving truly beautiful, healthy skin can boost your confidence significantly.
When you’re confident about how you look, it can impact other areas of your life as well! You can put on that dress you were always too afraid to flaunt, or raise your hand to speak at a meeting, or have a general acceptance of yourself that other people start to notice and admire….. the benefits of better skin go far beyond the surface.
So to sum it all up…
We’re all busy. Trying to stay sane raising babies, working our tired behinds off, and trying to have a social life. The last thing we want to do is spend time on something we don’t need. The really fantastic news is you don’t need to follow a crazy, complicated skin care regimen to achieve great-looking skin. By forming new habits and following a routine daily, you can get amazing skin quickly and enjoy it for many years to come.
Until next time friends!
