A lot of women, especially busy moms tend to forget about the most critical component of their appearance- their beautiful faces! The thought is…who on earth has time for tedious routines of exfoliating, moisturizing, masking, and makeup? It’s just one task that I can do without, right? Actually, not quite.

Facial care routines should be simple but consistent. It is especially important that women take the time to provide their skin with appropriate moisture. Skin that is neglected and lacks moisture easily wrinkles and before you know it those wrinkles invite their friends over for a party on your face and BAM! You begin to look a lot older than you are. Why take the chance?

Here are six simple beauty tips for keeping your face gorgeous, healthy and radiant:

1. Cleanse, exfoliate, tone and moisturize Why? As a busy mom you are constantly exposed to the elements- wind, dust, pollution… you even get perspiration. Surely you don’t want to have these things on your face, right? Consider cleansing with a soft cleanser. I always recommend using products that are as natural as possible. If you can eat it, chances are you can put it on your face. Stay away from products that are heavily based in alcohol because of its drying effects. I love to use lemons and apple cider vinegar in my toning routine. I also use oatmeal and apricot scrubs to exfoliate and rich vitamin A & C moisturizers.

2. Don’t forget the eyes Eye cream is really important. I know, it is so easy to forget, but just think about this- if this is neglected, in a few years time you might have to use a crane to lift up the bags from your eyes. That my dear, is never a good look!

3. Rest Not much to be said here. Beauty sleep is a must.

4. Water It keeps your vital organs functioning and helps keep skin supple and hydrated.

5. Diet Eat foods rich in vitamins and minerals. Avoid fried foods and foods rich in refined sugars and salt.

6. Light daily makeup routine It makes you look refreshed. Skin bronzer or light powder, lip gloss, mascara, blush. That’s all you really need. In a future post, I will show you how to make the best of this simple routine.

Your face is your treasure! Treat it with love and care.

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
