Grab Some “Me Time”

Time is in short supply when you’re brining up kids, and the concept of pampering yourself may have disappeared long ago. However, if you want to enjoy movie star looks while bringing up your brood, it’s essential to set aside a little time to yourself when you can. For instance, after you’ve put your little ones to bed, why not pamper yourself with a facial mask? When used once or twice a week, facial masks can clean your face, tighten your pores, and brighten your complexion. Just make sure you choose versions that suit your skin type.

Evenings are a good time to soak in the bath. This little window of relaxation at the end of your day can make the world of difference. It’s especially good if there’s someone else in your home that can come to the rescue if your children wake up and need attention. This way, you’re guaranteed some much-needed downtime.

Make Yourself Up Tip Top

Efficiency is the name of the game when you’re applying your morning makeup. You may only have a few moments to whip your face into shape, but as long as you know what to prioritize, this should be enough. A decent foundation takes seconds to apply and can bolster your appearance, particularly when you’ve not slept well. By choosing a product with a subtle shimmer, you can give yourself that all-important glow too.
