The question I get asked the most is, “what do you do to look so young?” In all honesty, I’am like everyone else, and I do have flaws! However, I have found that these 5 products have worked for me, in terms of helping my skin or concealing the flaws that I do have. Here are my top mommy must-haves:
My number one beauty secret is SUNSCREEN! I use sunscreen year-round to prevent wrinkles and age spots. Last year, I decided to neglect my skin and went without sunscreen during the winter, well… it only took a few winter months for me to see the results: AGE SPOTS! I was horrified to find three light brown age spots near my nose, and now I try my very best to use sunscreen everyday!
My next mommy must-have is a CC cream. I would recommend using a CC cream for light coverage of the skin. CC creams are great because they even out your skin tone while correcting any discolouration you have!
If you don’t feel like using a CC cream, then a concealer is a great alternative. I usually use concealer to cover up my dark under eye circles (caused from my toddler keeping me up most nights) and to cover up some of my age spots- that’s it! Using a small amount of concealer will give you huge results and leave you looking refreshed! And if you don’t feel like wearing makeup at all, throw on a pair of sunglasses!
Sunglasses are another quick and efficient way to cover those under eye dark circles…now, if only I could wear sunglasses indoors without looking creepy…!
Finally, my last mommy must-have includes a tinted lip balm. If you have pale lips like me, you need this! With bare lips, I look sick and dehydrated; I will have people come up to me and ask me if I’m sick- it’s that bad! But, with the help of a little tinted lip balm, I look ‘lively’ and refreshed!
