Any mom will tell you, some days it’s a blessing if we can even take a shower let alone put makeup on. As a mother of two little ones, I spend more time cleaning up something sticky than throwing on some mascara. Over the past few years, I’ve had to adjust my beauty routine to keep up with my hectic lifestyle. Fortunately, Rescue offers plenty of services and products that will keep moms looking like they actually had more than three hours of sleep. Here are my top “three busy mommy beauty tricks”:
At Rescue, our Xtreme eyelash extension service is a game changer for women on the go. Each eyelash is gently applied to your lashes without damage with a safe hypoallergenic glue, which gives you gorgeous eyelashes only requiring maintenance to refill them every 2/3 weeks. In the summer, I spend a lot of time outside chasing my kids around, sweating, or taking a dip in the pool. Extensions give a long, voluminous look, that’s on par with my favorite mascara but without the downside of smudging, reapplying, or clumpy lashes. With my custom lashes, I can roll out of bed and throw on a touch of makeup in under five minutes!
2. Preventative Cleansing
In mom world, sleep is a king. But sometimes, taking that extra step to wash your face after putting the little ones down can seem like a hassle. However, preventative care can save money down the line and keep your face looking young. With toddlers running around, I needed to come up with a quick skin care routine. To start, use Lait U cleansing milk, which works to deeply cleanse the pores. Follow the cleanse with Lotion P50 to keep your face balanced and glowing. Next, apply a little Biologique Recherche Le Grand Serum, which helps to prevent aging, smooth the skin, and keep the face plumped. Finally, finish your bedtime routine with a bit of Environ moisturizer to keep the skin well hydrated. Voilà!––not only will your wallet thank you after you’ve gotten the kids off to college, but your skin will thank you too.
The quickest way to age your skin is through sun damage. Jan Marini not only smells great, but it has excellent SPF coverage and a light, airy feel that won’t make you feel oily. Too busy for foundation? Try Jan Marini that has a bit of tinted bronzer to give your face a bit of color. With summer coming, it’s an easy step to pop into a morning routine to give your a face a fresh, dewy look.
Need a break from the kids entirely? Come visit one of our estheticians at Rescue for a full skin consultation, one of our premier facials, or simply relax in the spa as you sip your tea and let the stress melt away.
