Being a mom is a full-time gig, and it can be so easy to neglect caring for ourselves. But, don’t you worry, mama! If you’re looking for some quick and easy tips to care for your skin this summer while chasing your toddlers and rounding up children, we’ve got you covered. From helping your skin retain its moisture by using glycerin deodorant to simple tricks to give your skin a summer glow, we’ve got everything you need right here!

Always cleanse before you head to bed

Our skin picks up all kinds of grime during the day, especially when we’re groped by our child’s sticky fingers during a routine day with the kids. When you’re a busy mom it can feel like all you want to do go to bed at night, and we get that. That’s why we’ve got a simple solution. You just need two things – cleansing wipes and moisturizer – and you’re good to go! Simply keep them next to your bed, and before you go to sleep, give your face a good cleanse with the wipes and add a little moisturizer after. Trust us, you’ll feel much better after!

Keep away from the summer sun by sticking to indoor activities

Summer doesn’t mean you have to spend all day every day outside… especially as the summer months heat up. Hot, sweaty, cranky kids aren’t something any of us enjoy; and being out in the sun too much can also damage your skin. Instead, opt for some fun indoor activities. We’ve even shared 10 top indoor summer activities for you to try!

When you do head out, wear minimal make-up

Wearing make-up in the summer is not only time-consuming but can also lead to unwanted breakouts and drip in hot weather. Let’s be honest, as parents, we have enough to worry about when we’re getting sweaty chasing our children around in the summer heat without thinking about how our make-up looks. Ditching make-up completely isn’t necessary, but it is definitely worth embracing the season and giving your skin a chance to breathe. If you do apply make-up, keep an eye out for gel-based or cream-based products, and those containing SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s harsh UV rays.

Don’t ever forget sunscreen

With a million things on our minds, we’ve all been guilty of forgetting to protect our skin. The easiest hack is to always keep a bottle of sunscreen on you! We always use SPF30 or higher for the best results, and the benefits are worth it. Sunscreen helps slow the aging effects of the sun on your skin and prevent skin cancer too.

Use products that are kind to your skin

The summer months aren’t always kind to our skin, especially for parents like us who don’t have time to spend hours (or funds) on skincare. But it’s simple enough to be a little kinder to your skin by opting for products like glycerin deodorants that help retain natural moisture or rosewater spritz to cool, soothe and refresh dull, inflamed skin in the summer heat. Even something as simple as a hat can do wonders to protect your skin when you head outside in the summer! It’s all about making sure you’re prepared for the heat. 

We told you we had you covered. As much as you love your kids, spending some time on a little self-love with these summer skin care tips will leave you feeling so much better. And we all know a happy mom means happy kids!
