Top Skincare Tips For Mothers | Shens Aesthetics

“A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take”.

Like the above quote implied, mothers are indispensable in this world. With that, they’re likely the first people we ever know when we enter the world, and they love and care for us as we grow up. We understand that some of our readers are mothers themselves too, and you certainly deserve only the best.

All mommies should be given due credit for all their sacrifices and hard work. With a baby taking up all their attention, it can be rather challenging for many moms to put some effort into caring for their skin and looking good. Most mommies are usually spotted with eye bags and dark circles. However, we believe that being a mom does not mean that you have to struggle with dull skin.

With many mommies searching for the elixir for younger skin, Shens Aesthetics is here to share the “Top Skincare Tips For Mothers” to help them regain their radiance! Hence, we will also be sharing an amazing treatment to all mommies to help them regain their glow!

Without further ado, let’s begin!

Cleansing, Toning & Moisturise

Cleansing

If you have read up on our previous articles, you will notice that we have always emphasised that every beauty or skincare routine will undoubtedly start with the most important step of “cleansing”. This crucial step will help remove any dirt, makeup, grime or reduce the chances of clog pores on the skin’s surface. Thus, improving the absorption rate of beneficial serum or hydrating elements subsequently applied. 

Besides the above, it is also important for all mommies to wash their face with a cleanser that turns their skin into a sponge for anti-ageing products (if you aim to slow down the sign of ageing). If you were to buy whatever cheap cleanser is on sale or promises the biggest benefits on its label, you’ve likely been hurting your skin. We understand that cost may be a factor for some individuals, but we would like to advise individuals and mommies to choose a cleanser designed specifically for their skin type. The cleanser should not strip away too much of your skin’s natural oils or healthy cells, as getting the wrong cleanser that is too harsh for your skin can make your skin red, dry and irritated.

Hence, if your skin type is not super sensitive, we would advise you to choose a cleanser that contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs). These can stimulate cell turnover, helping prime your skin to better absorb the products you apply afterwards.

Toning

Toners can be the additional step to ensure that your face is properly cleansed. Toners are most helpful and necessary for people with oily or acne-prone skin or for people who want extra cleansing after wearing makeup or other heavy skin products such as sunscreen.

Furthermore, applying a small amount of toner and cleansing it with a soft cotton pad can give the appearance of smaller pores. Thus, the process helps to close pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing, reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. It can even protect and remove chlorine and minerals present in tap water.

Other than the above, do you know that toner can help to restore your pH balance too? In short, our skin is naturally acidic, and balance can get out of whack after cleansing due to the alkaline nature of the soap that we use (any forms of cleanser). Thereafter, our skin would require some time to return to its normal levels (which may result in oil). With the use of the toner, we can quickly restore the balance.

Sunscreen & Moisturise

Many dermatologists have noted that the foundation of younger skin is a multitasking moisturiser and sunscreen. The skin on your face, ears, neck and chest are very sensitive to environmental changes. These areas of skin also shed cells more rapidly than other parts of the body and therefore need moisture to repair itself, which allows for younger skin cells to rise to the surface.

In our previous articles, we have mentioned the importance of sunscreen and how it can act as an anti-ageing barrier for sun damages. Hence, wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is the most important thing for younger-looking skin.

Although sunscreen application is unable to undo the sun damage which your skin has already incurred, it is still best for any individuals to prevent more signs of photoageing, like fine lines, age spots, and discolouration.

Furthermore, by moisturising your skin, you can ensure that your skin stays hydrated and plump. Moisturising every day can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Both extremes are harmful to the skin and cause common skin conditions like acne.

The daily process of moisturising your skin can help to conceal your existing skin’s blemishes, and that is because moisturising tends to make the skin have a slight sheen. Thus, those with any tint or self-tanner can even out different skin tones.

At Shens Aesthetics, we recommend individuals look for moisturisers that offer broad-spectrum protection, meaning they filter both UVA and UVB rays, with an SPF of at least 30. For optimal benefits, choose an SPF moisturiser that also includes DNA repair enzymes like photolyase and endonuclease—these ingredients help block UV light on a molecular level, reducing the risk of photoaging even more.

skincare products

Other than the above, we would also recommend individuals look out for moisturising products containing hyaluronic acid (HA), which is incredibly hydrating and will plump the skin. In short, HA is a sugar found naturally in our skin that holds water and helps keep it hydrated. The HA within our bodies holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin and joints but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air.

It is important to note for all busy mommies that as we get older, the amount of naturally occurring HA in our bodies decreases. Hence, we will need to replenish HA in our body constantly to achieve and retain dewy and younger-looking skin.
