It’s the season to be gorgeous. Sun’s out, showing skin is in, and beach trips are waiting to be Instagrammed. But who has time to put in the effort? We know you don’t, so we’ve rounded up products that will hustle for you so you can keep on bustling.
Match the youthfulness of summer with these beauty and fashion tips. Here’s how to look younger the busy mom way.
Hydrate like a windswept flower in the Mediterranean hills
Say what?! Moms, allow us to introduce you to the small, but definitely not humble, Clary Sage. This flower faces constant battering by the winds of the Mediterranean, and thrives by trapping and retaining moisture.
Natural skincare and beauty brand Burt’s Bees, has harnessed the power of this wonder flower in formulating its Intense Hydration line. The latest addition to the line is the Nourishing Facial Water with Clary Sage, a ‘nutrient-infused drink for your skin’.
Meant for use after cleansing and toning, but before applying moisturizer, the Nourishing Facial Water with Clary Sage balances skin’s PH and boosts its hydration.
Smear the glow on by Strobing
Always wanted those Hollywood cheekbones but never had the tools or knowhow to make them happen? Homegrown makeup + skincare brand, Happy Skin, has come up with a no-fuss solution for busy moms – a strobing kit that even comes with a cheat sheet!
Strobing is the technique used to achieve a “perfect shimmery, dewy, and youthful glow”. Blend the Champagne and Taupe highlighter sticks for cheekbones and a nose bridge like you’ve never had them before, and finish with the Pink Satin blush stick.
