I must admit I truly looked disheveled the first few months of becoming a new mom. Yoga pants and stained t-shirts were my jam. Since a few years have gone by I’ve learned a few tricks here and there, also it helps that my son is now more independent.
Perhaps you are in the same boat I was in, probably struggling to sneak in a shower. If you are that mom on the move, I’m here to help you get your self-care routine back in line.
How do you find the time for self-care as a mom on the move?
Well, although it’s easier said then done you can find the time but you have to really focus. I’m so excited to work with Dove to try their Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and bring you these doable self-care tips.
was am a real “No, I’ll do it Mom” and if I could take back those NO’s I gave a way when someone wanted to help me I would have been a far better woman to myself. I could have taken a few of those moments to myself to recoup.
Undoubtedly my number One tip for a successful self-care routine is to SAY YES to anyone who offers to help.
Simplify the process: Stay Fresh with Dove
We’re not talking full on hair and make-up here. Unless you have a #glamsquad, you’ll have to take care of your beauty routine
alone in the company of a possibly crying child. Strong fragrances aren’t recommended around babies, so you won’t be able to mask that spit up smell that easily.
Showering can be a haunting tasks if you’re home alone with your baby, so plan accordingly. When home alone, the best time to shower is when the baby is asleep, but keep in mind you will be hearing phantom baby cries throughout your shower.
If you are privileged to be in the company of a responsible adult, hand over your baby to said responsible adult and hop in that glorious shower you so deserve.
I’ve been a Dove girl all of my adult life, and I was very excited to try their Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant to see if it holds up through the hectic day of a mom on the go.
Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection, plus its Nutrium Moisture formula and 1/4 moisturizers leave your underarms feeling soft and smooth. I can attest to that and so can all of the women who have rated it 5 stars.
A clean hair and a fresh scent will immediately lift your spirits and give you the boost you need to keep taking care of your little one. If all else fails you can be sure your Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant won’t let you down. You can still feel fresh even when a shower isn’t in the works.
3 Minute Make up Application:
Applying a little make-up never hurt anyone, and when I say little I really do mean it. You don’t need a full face of make-up. I suggest applying a facial moisturizer, mascara, light concealer under your eyes, cream blush and mascara.
Yes, you’re a new mom! The baby hanging from your arm will make sure to let anyone know but your clothes don’t have to show it. You can easily look polished by changing a few things. Say No to wearing shirts that smell of spit-up.
Just like you’ll be constantly changing your kiddo daily, you’ll need to follow the same schedule for you. Store clean and cute tees in the same place as your kiddos onesies and you both can feel fresh.
As a mom on the move, how do you keep fresh all day ? If the Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant isn’t yet part of your self-care routine it’s time for an upgrade.
Go ahead and experience the difference of the Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant. I’m sure once you do you won’t stop sharing your 5-Star Review, let me know when you do.
