Glowing Skin for the Busy Mom: 5 Tips to Simplify your Daily Ritual

Being a mom is a full-time job, and sometimes taking care of yourself can fall to the bottom of the to-do list. But just because you're busy doesn't mean you can't have great skin! 

We spoke with Courtney Gervais, a digital creator and mom-of-all-trades based in Chattanooga, TN about what skincare during and after pregnancy means to her:

"Skincare has become increasingly important to me, the older I've grown... Clothes, shoes, cars - all come and go - but your face? ...You only get one! And it's better to start a good routine early, than try to backtrack years down the road. What's equally important to me is clean, natural ingredients and RBA checks all the boxes! I've been using RBA for the last 3 years and it is a one-stop shop. Their products meet all my needs. I remember the first time I tried the skin Firming Serum and thought, 'Wow, I can genuinely feel my skin tightening!' I've been pregnant or breastfeeding since December of 2020 and the RBA team has helped me select products that are prenatal and postpartum-safe. You don't have to sacrifice good skincare during this stage of life!"

In honor of Mother's Day, we wanted to share 5 simple tips that can help busy moms look and feel their best everyday!

Keep it Simple

When it comes to skincare, less is often more. Instead of a complicated 10-step ritual, focus on a few key products that work well for your skin. A gentle cleanser, a nourishing serum, and a hydrating moisturizer with SPF are all you really need to keep your skin healthy and protected.

Multifunctional Products

Saving time with multifunctional products is a super helpful way to simplify your skincare ritual while covering all of your skincare bases! A moisturizing SPF like our lightweight, daily Luminous Moisturizer is a great way to make sure your skin stays hydrated and protected throughout the day. Additionally, our 2-in-1 Quench Polishing Mask is an amazing product to incorporate into your minimal skincare ritual a few times a week that allows you to gently exfoliate your skin, while nourishing it with natural, effective ingredients like calendula, comfrey, and honey.

Invest in a Good Eye Serum

Late nights and early mornings can take a toll on your under-eye area, causing dark circles and puffiness. An effective and calming eye serum, like our Revitalizing Eye Repair, can help to brighten, reduce fine lines, and de-puff this sensitive area, making you look more rested and refreshed.

Take Advantage of Shower Time 

Who says skincare has to take up extra time in your day? Use your shower time to give your skin some extra love by using a polishing mask or a gentle exfoliating scrub with moisturizing ingredients. Add these extra, easy steps to your shower or bath routine and your skin will thank you!

Don't Forget Your Hands

As a mom, you're probably washing your hands a lot throughout the day. This can lead to dryness and irritation, so be sure to use a hydrating lotion regularly to keep your hands soft and smooth.

Remember, taking care of yourself is important too! By incorporating these simple skincare tips into your daily ritual, you can look and feel your best even on the busiest days. So go ahead and give yourself permission to indulge in a little self-care – you deserve it, mama!
