Self-Care for Busy Moms
Show of hands: Who could use a little extra “me time”? Us too. If you’re reading this, you’re probably a mom with a mile-long to-do list. Below, our guide to self-care rituals that truly deliver results in five minutes (or less).
Use an Eye Cream
It’s the easiest-ever trick for wide-awake eyes and takes just seconds to do. Not only does it feel incredible, but a great eye cream makes concealer go on so much easier. Our Firming Eye Cream smooths the look of skin for a more youthful appearance. Gigartina seaweed combines with DPHP (dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline), a plant-derived amino acid, to firm skin and leave it feeling supple.
Set It and Forget It
Don’t have time to exfoliate your face? We’ve got you. Our new Seaglow Overnight Serum AHA Treatment resurfaces and reinforces your skin’s moisture barrier in one easy step. Use it before bed to smooth, retexturize and minimize the look of pores while you sleep. So please, put on your coziest PJs, cover your face with our serum, queue up your favorite show and get comfy. You’re not moving until morning (unless your kids wake you up, of course, but even then you’ll still get all of the benefits–i.e., glowing, otherworldly skin).
Face Oil Changes Everything
Need a midday pick-me-up? The moment your energy tanks and your skin starts feeling dull, apply a few drops of face oil to recharge your complexion (and your spirits). Our beloved Essential Hydrating Oil instantly makes skin soft, moisturized and glowing. Made with a blend of nourishing jojoba and macadamia oils and eight essential oils, this miracle product (formulated by our founder, Jenefer, over 26 years ago!) sinks in fast and smells like a gorgeous bouquet of geranium, rosewood and clary sage.
Make Time for Dry Brushing
Exfoliate, smooth and energize all in one step. Before hopping in the shower, brush your entire body, starting at your feet and working your way up toward your heart. Our Plant-Based Dry Brush is the perfect balance of soft yet firm vegan sisal-fiber bristles that feel like absolute heaven on the skin.
Try a Body Butter
Nothing screams downtime more than applying an ultra-decadent and utterly moisturizing body butter. We’re talking about our best-selling Undaria Algae Body Butter. It transforms dry, crepey skin to soft, smooth and supple and has high-performance ingredients that you’d normally reserve for your skincare, like firming DPHP (dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline), seaweed, ceramides and shea butter. Also, it’s clinically proven to hydrate for 72 hours, so if you don’t have time to moisturize daily, you can rest assured it will keep on working wonders.
