An Easy Skincare Routine for New Moms


Becoming a new mom is an exciting and rewarding experience. However, it can also be exhausting and stressful trying to adjust to your new role while caring for a newborn. As much as you want to focus all your time and energy on your baby, don’t forget to also take care of yourself! Having a simple skincare routine can go a long way in helping you feel refreshed and confident during this transition.

Focus on the Essentials

When your time and hands are limited, stick to the skincare essentials. Try to wash your face morning and evening, apply moisturizer, and use sunscreen during the day. This simple routine keeps your skin clean, hydrated, and protected.

Choose Multitasking Products

Look for skincare products that can address multiple concerns. For example, choose a moisturizer with SPF to hydrate and protect skin from the sun in one step. You can also find eye creams that help reduce puffiness and dark circles while also hydrating the delicate eye area. The LED eyecare pro masks are another great multitasking product to consider. With 96 red LED lights targeting the entire eye area, these FDA-cleared masks can boost collagen, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, diminish puffiness and dark circles, and even out skin tone in just 3 minutes per day. The hands-free design makes it easy to use while nursing or rocking your baby.

Focus on Hydration

Staying hydrated is key when you’re recovering from childbirth and breastfeeding. Be sure to drink plenty of water each day. Eating fruit and veg with high water content can also help. For your skin, choose moisturizers and serums with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin. Hydrated skin will look plumper, smoother, and more radiant.

Prep Your Skin at Night

While your baby naps during the day, it’s unlikely you’ll want to spend that precious time on skincare. Focus your routine at night instead. Take 5 minutes before bed to wash your face, apply any spot treatments, and moisturize. You’ll wake up with cleaner, more refreshed skin. 

Recruit Some Help

Don’t be afraid to ask your partner, family, and friends for help with the baby. That way you can set aside a little time each day to relax and follow your skincare routine. Taking just 5-10 minutes for yourself will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to continue caring for your little one. If possible, enjoy your skincare routine while bonding with your baby – wash your face or apply a mask while they nap in your arms!

Go Makeup-Free

Many new moms ditch makeup entirely or just use a little concealer to help save time and keep skin clear. Going makeup-free means your skin can breathe and you don’t have to worry about washing it all off before bed. Get your glow from skincare instead – look for brightening ingredients like vitamin C and niacinamide to make dull skin radiant. And don’t forget those LED masks to target eye area dark circles and puffiness.

New motherhood brings massive changes, but a simple skincare routine can provide some comfort during the transition. Focus on quick essentials like cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection, and take advantage of multitasking products that can treat multiple concerns efficiently. Making your routine as easy as possible will help you actually stick to it, so you can take the best care of your skin while caring for your new baby.

I recently had the pleasure of interacting with Crepe Erase’s customer service team and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed with the level of professionalism and attentiveness they provided. From the moment I reached out with a question about their products, I was met with prompt and helpful responses that truly made me feel valued as a customer, for customer service contact visit . The representative I spoke with was incredibly knowledgeable about their cosmetics and personal care line, and was able to provide me with detailed information to help me make an informed decision. Overall, my experience with Crepe Erase’s customer service was exceptional and I would highly recommend their products to anyone looking for high-quality skincare solutions.
