Moms, like everyone, want to look their best. The problem is, it can be tough to find the time that you want to devote to your skincare routine, and when you do have the time it can be difficult to know what to prioritize.
Luckily, there are a few things you can do to take care of your skin, prevent it from aging prematurely, and keep you looking your best.
Protect your skin from the sun
Sun protection is one of the most important things you can do to protect your skin from premature aging.
UVA and UVB rays emitted by the sun damage your skin and can leave it looking tired and cause it to age more quickly.
To ensure that your skin is protected, make sure that you always wear sunscreen on any exposed areas. You can buy moisturizers and foundations that contain sun protection so that you don’t need to think about this too much. It’s also a good idea to wear a hat to protect your face, and sunglasses to protect the delicate skin around your eyes.
If you can, wear lightweight clothing with long legs and sleeves to keep your skin out of direct sunlight.
If you like to have a tan, it’s much better for your skin to apply fake tan, rather than spend hours lying out in the sun.
As well as being bad for your heart and being a cause of cancer, smoking causes your skin to age much more quickly. Smokers find that their skin looks more sallow and wrinkled than people who don’t.
Quitting smoking also improves your circulation, which helps your skin to appear brighter and healthier.
If you can find the time, anti ageing treatments can transform how your skin looks, as well as being a wonderful way to pamper yourself after a busy week!
Hydrafacials combine a cleanse and peel that uses gentle exfoliation to reveal a new layer of skin, with pore cleaning and hydration treatments that will leave your skin looking and feeling much younger.
Moderate your drinking
Alcohol impacts your skin in a number of ways. Firstly, it dehydrates us which causes damage. And, when you drink inflammation is caused in the body which can cause the skin to appear red. When drinking is repeated over a long period of time, this redness can become permanent.
Drinking can also cause blackheads and whiteheads to form, which causes your skin to look uneven. Over time these blemishes can get worse and become more permanent acne.
It’s tough to fit in regular exercise when it seems as though there is always someone who needs your attention! However, any exercise that raises your heartbeat is going to improve your circulation, which in turn will improve how your skin looks and protect it from premature ageing.
Try fitting in 10 to 15 minutes of exercise most days, even dancing in your kitchen will make a difference!
