1. Use lanolin cream.
“I swear by this stuff!! And yes, it’s a nipple cream, but after my daughter was born, I actually started using it on my lips after I washed my face at night and before I put lipstick on. If my lips are feeling especially dry, I will even put it on over my lipstick, like gloss. It helps me feel complete and put together, especially when running errands all day or chasing after Jackson and Isla Rose.”
2. Add a skin care device into your routine.
“GloPRO will change your life! I was able to meet the founder, Jamie O’Banion, last month and I couldn’t wait to test it out! It’s a microneedling tool that improves your skin’s firmness, smooths fine lines and evens skin tone. I haven’t missed one night since starting and I’ve completely switched my skin care routine, so now I’m using all of her products and I’ve noticed a huge difference. Every busy mom needs this amazing product to end her day with!”

3. Don’t touch your face.
“Growing up my mom would constantly tell my sisters and I that if we wanted beautiful, smooth skin like our grandma’s, we should keep our hands off our faces! Especially chasing my two babies around all day, I can only imagine how dirty my hands are, and I don’t want that on my face!”
4. Choose lipstick that won’t wear.
“I’m a lipstick fanatic! It’s amazing what a touch of color on your lips can do for you. It ties together your whole look, even if you’re wearing super minimal makeup. MAC and Charlotte Tilbury are my favorites!”
5. Take a shower/bath at night.
“After a long day, one of my favorite ways to unwind is to take a bubble bath with my favorite candle lit. You can’t go wrong with a Voluspa candle—they all smell so amazing and will be sure to help you relax! Sometimes I even shower and braid my hair when it’s wet, or just go to bed with wet hair, and when I wake up the next morning, I have some natural waves.
6. Invest in a long-wear foundation.
“When you’re a busy mom, you don’t have much time to think about all of the makeup essentials every day. So find a foundation that gives you everything you need—full coverage and a natural glow all in one container. My personal favorite is Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.”
