The most easy skincare routine for moms
One thing I won’t skimp on as a mom is my skincare routine. It might sound vain, but I do love looking good. However, a good, easy skincare routine for moms doesn’t have to be complicated, so I want to share my easy skincare routine with all of you!

Why Skincare is Important
I know that proper skincare seems secondary sometimes, especially if you have small children at home. My youngest is five, and I still struggle to get five minutes in the bathroom alone. However, taking care of your skin prevents premature aging, and when you use sunscreen and a moisturizer with it, you get that added protection against the sun. This is super important to me in the summer. I barely get my sunscreen on the rest of me when I am trying to chase an exuberant Crankles!
Sometimes though, we let things like this fall by the wayside, especially when the kids are little. However, sometimes a bad day is made better for me just by taking care of my face.
My Super Easy Skincare Routine
My skincare routine comprises of only 3 products. One of these products is not even used every day. Trust me, this won’t take more than a few minutes to do, and you will have fresh face!
Product One: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Prep Facial Cream Cleanser
Actually, another Neutrogena Cleanser will do. I recently started using this one because turning 40 this year makes me think I will wrinkle soon. However, I still get mistaken as my son’s older sister, so I am good with this.
I have been using Neutrogena forever, and they have cleansers for all types of skin and issues you may have, like acne. Basically, I just wash my face with this.
Product Two: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Retinol & Vitamin E Face & Neck Cream Moisturizer
Product Three: dr. brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant
This product is newer to my skincare routine. It came in a beauty box earlier this year and fell in love! I keep this in the shower and use it about twice a week. Followed up with moisturizer, it makes my skin feel so smooth! It is a bit pricy, but it is completely worth it!
Making Self-Care a Priority
I know that this doesn’t sound glamorous, but real self-care really isn’t anyways. Taking those couple minutes to take care of your skin makes a difference when you are stressed out. I love all my kids immensely. However, as a homeschooling mom, I get stressed out a lot. Sometimes, washing my face is my pause for a moment on the stress.
