I may not be an expert on all things beauty or self-care, but I enjoy writing about it and reading about blogger’s routines. Anyone else with me? And since becoming a mother, my self-care routine has changed quite a bit. It’s no surprise that I have less time to devote to my beauty game in this season of life, so my strategy has been to use a few quality products and create regular self-care habits so make my skin, hair and nails look great without a lot of primping.
Here’s the products and habits I like to incorporate into my self-care routine including AVEENO® from Walmart. When I do these on a regular basis, I feel so much better and as a result- am more on top of my Mom game!
Throw in a good magazine or TV show and some dark chocolate, and it’s just as good as a trip to the spa if you ask me. Almost… :-)
Wash my hair with quality shampoo and conditioner
I have trained my hair to go a few days between washes, and it’s been great for my hair (along with letting it air dry most days). On those days when I do wash it, I reach for a shampoo and conditioner that are effective. I’ve been using AVEENO® products like lotions and body wash for quite some time, and really like how effective they all are. So on my latest trip to Walmart, I picked up AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner to add to my hair care routine. The sulfate-free formulas remove impurities and help rebalance my hair’s moisture so it feels shiny and healthy looking between washes. Plus, it’s dye free and safe for color treated hair. My hair definitely feels healthy and more full of life these days so I don’t have to hide my hair under baseball caps all the time!
Treat my feet
At the end of a long week, there’s nothing better than a warm foot soak with epsom salts (and I use the kind with lavender in it- absolutely divine). It really works wonders and is a nice way to treat myself by sitting down with a magazine and just relaxing. Every few weeks, I do a bit of an at-home pedicure complete with using a pumice stone, cleaning up the cuticles and applying a fresh coat of polish. Happy feet, indeed!
Shape my eyebrows
I have dark eyebrows, so it’s fairly obvious when I go a while without tweezing. Maybe it’s just me, but there is something so satisfying about having freshly plucked eyebrows that makes me feel like a million bucks. It makes my eyes pop and makes my face feel so much more fresh. (I’ve also been doing this and it’s been a big game changer for my face…plus it’s quick, cheap and insanely gratifying when you are done.)
Washing my face with a great cleanser is nice, but I always try to do something a little extra a couple times a week. I have been using the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® 60 SECOND IN-SHOWER FACIAL and feel like it’s really made a difference and is a great addition to my self-care routine. First of all, any product that I can use while I multitask is a win for me as a Mama. I don’t always have time to sit with a mask on for 10-15 minutes, so using this product makes the process so much faster. The oil-free non-comedogenic formula transforms my tired-looking skin to look brighter and radiant in literally a minute. It works with the steam of your shower to deeply (yet gently) exfoliate dirt, oil and dead skin, leaving healthy, glowing skin behind…and 4x faster than at-home masks and peels. Major win in my book.
Clean makeup brushes and hair accessories
I make a point to clean the items that come in contact with my skin and hair. I regularly wash my makeup brushes with baby shampoo so I’m not causing myself any breakouts. Same goes for hair accessories like hair bands and hats that I wear all day or during workouts when I get sweaty. A good wash and air dry gives my brushes and accessories new life and helps them last. (I also try to go through my makeup once or twice a year and get rid of any old or expired items. My skin is better off without them, and it makes for a more streamlined counter or cabinet!)
