Summertime Skincare Tips for Busy Moms

Summer for the busy mom is the season to sweat, play, swim, and manage feral children home on summer break. When the sun is out, it absorbs moisture from your skin, leaving it flaky and irritated or extra oily. If you enjoy swimming to cool off, the chlorine in your pool could make your skin even drier. As a busy mom, you may not have much time for skincare since it’s go-time as soon as the sun comes up until it goes down again. However, it could make a huge difference to your skin if you took a little time to incorporate these easy skincare tips that can fit right into your busy schedule.

Hydrate All Throughout the Day

This is one of the simplest ways to care for your skin. When you are dehydrated, it reflects on your skin in the form of dry patches, wrinkles, acne, and tightness. Try to drink at least eight glasses of water throughout the day. Make it tasty by adding some fresh cucumber, lemon, or watermelon slices to infuse some flavor into your H20. Water can also help to boost your metabolism, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.

Use Non-Comedogenic Products

A sure-fire way to keep your skin clear and on point this summer is to make sure whatever foundation, moisturizer, or sunscreen you are using is non-comedogenic, meaning its formulas won’t clog your pores.


Protect your pores from clogging with oils, dirt, and silicones this summer. If these creams clog your pores, they can trigger even bigger problems like blackheads, acne, and enlarged pores.

Protect Your Skin from UV Rays

Fun in the sun is a real thing, but so is harmful UV damage. Long-term sun exposure can trigger age spots, wrinkles, and other skin issues, so before you hit the pool, run errands, or lay out to enjoy that much needed vitamin D, make sure you apply SPF 30 or higher.

Choose Healthy Food Options

With a busy mom schedule, it can be easy to eat leftovers off your kids’ delicious snacks or make a quick trip through a drive-thru somewhere, but greasy, overprocessed foods aren’t good for your skin. Make sure you’re stocked up on ingredients like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins, and have them prepared to grab and eat when on the go. Your skin and your body will thank you.

Skip Shaving and Waxing

Shaving and waxing are some of the most time-consuming tasks for women during the summer. It seems right after we spend 15 minutes in the shower shaving all the important bits, we need to do it all over again 3 days later. To help save you some valuable summer play time, try laser hair removal and make your shower times shorter and play times longer.
