While we can all agree that being a mom including living long enough to become grandmothers, is one of the noblest roles any woman could ever take, it’s also a really taxing and overwhelming one. With how hectic motherhood can be, it isn’t surprising to see how these amazing women in your life have completely fallen out of their skincare habits or have just not had the chance to figure out what specific skincare products they need. To help moms and grandmothers regain their youthful glow, we’ve listed five products fit for busy women.
Skin "essence" is a concentrated formula that specifically targets fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. This skincare product is primarily made with yeast which helps restore the balance of the skin. Business Insider’s review of Misha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence explained that the right combination of fermented yeast extract, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide can help smoothen the skin, reduce redness and hydrate the face.
Most dermatologists would agree that the best way to keep your skin healthy is by wearing sunscreen even when you’re indoors and it's raining cats and dogs outside. Sunscreen protects the skin from harmful and damage-causing UV rays which cause sun spots, skin sagging and many more. Allure’s review of Glossier Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen SPF 35 noted that the best sunscreen for everyday use is one that’s very light and won’t leave your skin looking ashy.
Vitamin E Cream
Recently, one of the biggest skincare trends has been vitamin-infused skincare, and one of the most common vitamins used in skincare products is vitamin E. In PrettyMe’s review of the popular AR vitamin E cream from Thailand, they explain that vitamin E cream can protect the skin from free radicals that damage your skin and weaken its elasticity. Vitamin E also closes skin cracks and prevent moisture from escaping, keeping your skin plump and hydrated.
By moisturizing your skin daily, you can reduce the chances of developing extreme dryness or oiliness which can cause common skin problems like acne. Today’s review of Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Night Face Cream mentioned that the best anti-ageing face moisturizers today are made with retinol which boosts the collagen your body makes and makes your skin look plumper. Combined with Vitamin B3, retinol in moisturizers can help get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and lighten dark spots.
When it comes to the eyes, fine lines and wrinkles are the biggest concern for women. Eye creams differ from face creams because they are particularly made for the delicate eye area that needs constant hydration. Good Housekeeping’s review of Lancôme Absolute Revitalizing Eye Cream explained that the best eye creams are not only hydrating and firming but also contain some brighteners that mask under-eye darkness and make the user look a little more awake.
Other than using skincare products, moms should also take a hard look at their lifestyle and make changes if they want to maintain a healthy and glowing skin. In our post '9 Tips for Staying Young!' we've discussed that steps as simple as drinking enough water and having a healthy diet can already improve the condition of your skin.
