#GlaMOMfied Your Life

There are a lot of assumptions on what motherhood’s all about. While there is a fulfilling, positive side to being a mom 24/7, they also say this is the time women start losing themselves - not having the time to glam up or look good, which normally results weariness and looking more than how old you actually are. Imagine - motherhood is a full-time thing. In fact, they say that it amounts to 2.5 full-time jobs. Can you imagine the toll it can take, physically and emotionally?

Yes, we do have a lot on our plate! But it’s exactly the skills that we’ve acquired through being moms that have made us experts in finding the right tools to help you feel glam, look fresh, and stay youthful! Here are 5 fool-proof ways to ensure you’re giving yourself the TLC you need (and to take a few years off):

1. Start with a skin care regimen that defies ageing 

Cleansing properly is the easiest way to make sure your skin is smooth and clear! Choose a cleanser that has low PH ~ gentle enough but packs a punch to renew it.

SkinDoctor+Mommy+Mundo

We love Skin Doctors pH Balancing Cleanser. It contains avocado extract that’s perfect for rehydration while the alpha hydroxy acid helps improve skin texture. Ingredients have properties that fight skin sagging and ageing.You can save time skipping the highlighter when your skin already glows from within! No need to hide your dark circles, and worry about looking too old. This balancing cleanser can promise to repair damage skin, and even brighten it up . You can sport a no-shame, no-make-up look that you’d be confident to show off. Make your mom friends wonder how you’re defying ageing!

2. Say NO to sun damage

Sun causes a whole lot of premature ageing and hyperpigmentation. You’ll be surprised how well a good sunblock can help in maintaining your youthful look. Applying a sunblock protects your skin from early formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Skin Doctor SPF Mommy Mundo

Our pick is the Skin Doctors Supermoist SPF 50 UVA/UVB Sun Protection. It’s non-greasy, absorbs quickly and lightweight but keeps your skin moisturize. Keep one in your bag and re-apply every few hours to keep your skin looking light and glowing!

3. Don’t let your hair down, let down your hair!
