Don’t let the stress of the back-to-school season get you (and your skin) down. This busy time of year often leaves parents overwhelmed and worn down from getting kids back in the groove. After you treat the kids to new school supplies and clothes, pamper yourself a bit.
The busier life gets the easier it is for sleep deprivation to creep up on you. Not getting 7-9 hours of sleep every night can put a serious damper on skin. Being especially tired may even lead to skipping detrimental steps in your daily routine. Layer that on top of not feeling as well as you should, and you have a recipe for stressed out skin.
With fall fast approaching, make it a priority to treat your skin with the care it needs and deserves. Soon the weather will be cooling down and you may find yourself indoors more. That doesn’t mean you should skip the sunscreen. Rain or shine, make sure your daily routine includes a sunscreen of at least 15 SPF. Eclipse Protect Sensitive Skin Anti-Oxidant Facial Sunscreen SPF 30 is a great option!
Falling into a new routine means you can change any existing bad habits! It takes 21 days to make a habit, so start now and make some good ones! Cleansing your face morning and night removes dirt, oil, makeup, and even that little bit of paint left from your kids’ latest artistic venture. Regular face washing is also important in keeping your skin smooth and moisturized by managing pH levels to enable sufficient water and skincare product retention.
Keeping your skin clean can allow skin to get maximum benefits from anti-aging products. Bonus, remembering to remove the impurities will leave you and your skin feeling bright and refreshed!
Exercise helps to relieve stress; and we all know, stress can speed up aging tremendously. Additionally, blood flow is increased basically cleaning your skin from the inside by flushing cellular debris from the system. With that said, you’ll want to remember to wash and care for your skin, especially after exercising to avoid clogged pores. Don’t forget the sunscreen especially on days pretty enough for a workout outdoors!
The skin is ~65% water, so don’t deprive it in the midst of your busy day super-parenting! The National Institute of Medicine recommends that women get 2.7 liters (about nine cups) of water per day. A great way to make sure you get your daily intake is to have at least 2 cups, or an entire refillable bottle at every transitional stage of the day. So drink up when you wake up, when you get to work, halfway to lunch, at lunch, etc. Hydrated skin is happy skin!
In the evenings when you finally get a chance to relax, take some time for you! Kick back, try an Eclipse facial mask, and relax. Once the hustle and bustle of back to school is over, talk to you skin-care provider about Eclipse products to get you back to looking and feeling younger than ever!
