Like many of you, one of my priorities this year is self-care. As a busy mom of three, this is easier said than done because there’s just not enough time in the day to take care of our children, home AND take care of ourselves. Let’s face it. We moms are so used to running around after our kids and completing household tasks that we put ourselves in the back burner 90% of the time.

Now that my youngest baby is almost 19 months and our routine is somewhat back to normal, I make it a priority to take care of my hair, body and skin with a dedicated and regular beauty regimen.

As much as I’d love to follow an extensive and complete beauty routine, reality is that I’m not left with much time and energy to do so every night so I keep my routine simple and practical.

In this post, I want to share some of my favorite beauty hacks for busy moms who don’t have much time.

1. Simplify your daily make-up routine

Before I became a mom, I had time to invest in a full set of make-up that includes eyeshadow, blush, highlighter, lipstick, etc. Nowadays I’m lucky if I remember to put on sunblock before leaving the house.

Today my daily make-up routine is much simpler by using combined ingredients. For example, instead of using sunblock and foundation, I use tinted moisturizers or cushions that combine moisturizer, sunblock and light coverage in one formula. Instead of lipstick, I use tinted gloss that moisturizes my lips as well as add light color. I usually skip blush, eye shadow and any other extras that require more time to apply and remove.

2.  Always carry a face mist for dry skin

I have dry skin that gets even drier around wintertime. To combat dryness, I always carry a face mist with me so I can rehydrate my face whenever it needs extra moisture. The hydrating facial mist from Walgreens is a good choice, with cucumber, rose water and hyaluronic acid as key ingredients.

Like other Walgreens beauty products like the facial cleanser and moisturizer, the facial mist is free from parabens, phthalates and sulfates.

3. Buy quality beauty items without the high price tag

If you think you have to pay high prices for quality beauty products, think again.

Studio 35 Beauty is now an extensive Walgreens beauty line that includes high quality beauty essentials like facial moisturizer, cleanser, mist and cleansing water as well as various body wash and lotions. It also features men’s beauty razors as well as various sized cosmetic brushes.

What I like about Walgreens products is that they are trusted, high-quality beauty and personal care products that can be found at Walgreens nationwide. With its new attractive packaging and quality ingredients that are free from parabens, phthalates and sulfates, Walgreens beauty offers an array of beauty and personal care essentials at great prices without sacrificing quality.

So next time you’re in need of new beauty essentials like lotions, facial and body cleansers as well as personal care items like razors, make up brushes and cotton swabs, stop by your local Walgreens and check out the new Walgreens Beauty section.

  1. Such a helpful blog post! I spent so much time on my beauty routine before I had my baby, and now, I have totally abandoned it because it took up so much time. Having a simplified routine with products that do multiple things is a great way to get back into it without having to set aside too much time from my busy schedule. I love the layout and look of your blog. It’s beautiful!

  2. I think the most important thing for busy Mom’s is to keep it simple. All of your tips here fit into that belief. We are so busy anyway, who has time to add another long and drawn out routine? No one. Thanks for sharing your quick tips.
