Low-Effort Tips Working Moms Need for a Radiant Skin Care Routine

Radiant, glowing skin is in today. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or balancing a career, keeping up with the latest skincare products and routines can be overwhelming. We’re here to help you create a low-effort, low-maintenance skincare routine that keeps you glowing from morning to night.

Choose a Moisturizer With Sunscreen

You likely put moisturizer on each morning, so choosing a product containing sunscreen can help you skip a step.

Of course, if you’re in the sun for many hours, such as during a beach day or while attending an outdoor festival, make sure you wear a high enough SPF for your skin tone. You’ll also want to make sure to reapply the sunscreen every few hours.

Low-Effort Tips Working Moms Need for a Radiant Skin Care Routine

Protect Your Skin When Away From the Beach

Most of us remember to put on sunscreen when we’re at the beach or pool. However, few of us remember that we should wear sunscreen whenever harmful rays are present, whether attending our child’s soccer match or driving on a road trip.

In fact, protecting your skin while working from home or at the office is also essential to a good skincare routine.

Vehicle window tinting can help block some of the harmful rays when driving. If you own or rent a business, commercial window tinting can help protect you and your employees while also keeping everyone comfortable at work.

Window tinting services can block over 99% of UV rays, also protecting your skin and furniture.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

All the experts recommend getting ample sleep. How many hours you need depends on who you ask, but research does show that good sleep improves your health and the appearance of your skin.

Getting the recommended number of hours of sleep may be difficult between work, family, and household duties, but aiming for a few solid hours at least is a good start.

If you have trouble falling asleep at night, try to find a solution to what’s stopping you from getting to sleep. If your mind races at night, try a few mindfulness practices or jot down the things you want to remember in a notebook by the bed.

If you’re finding it difficult to get comfortable, upgrading your bed and bedding may be helpful. Turning off your phone after a certain hour also helps remove work duties from your mind.

Start As Soon As You Can

The best skincare routines are ones that you’re consistent with. Many dermatologists recommend taking care of your skin in your early-20s. Of course, properly caring for your skin goes beyond even that.

While it may be too late to return to your teen or childhood years and apply sunscreen, you can encourage these things for your children.

Make sure they’re wearing enough sunscreen anytime they go outdoors, even on cloudy or rainy days, because you never know when the sun may come out.

Drink Water and Consume a Healthy Diet

Drinking water offers many benefits, including glowing, radiant skin. Try to start each morning off with a large glass of water. Then, sip on another glass of water with lunch and again, one before bed.

Coffee and alcohol pull moisture out rather than hydrate you, so replacing even one beverage with a glass of water can be a good start.

How you eat may also affect the health of your skin. Some foods can also promote healthier skin, including fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Supplements also help you get even more of the essential vitamins or nutrients you may be missing.

Remove Your Makeup

It’s so tempting to just go to sleep with makeup on, especially after a long day. However, your makeup acts as a magnet during the day, which means it attracts dirt and oils.

Leaving your makeup with built-up debris can lead to more breakouts and clogged pores.

Try to get into the habit of removing your makeup each time you come home. Invest in a few high-quality makeup wipes or facial cleaners to make it easier to remove your makeup before bedtime quickly.


Exfoliating is another must-add to your skincare routine. Regularly exfoliating can help improve the effectiveness of your moisturizer. It also improves your skin tone and slows down the aging process.

Investing in a good exfoliator and exfoliating cream can do wonders for a low-maintenance skincare routine.

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars or hours daily to achieve good-looking, glowing skin. Instead, try to get a good night’s sleep, eat healthy foods, drink plenty of water, and limit sun exposure.

SPF sunscreen, a daily moisturizer, and vehicle and office tinting can help you avoid too much sunlight.
