Quick and Easy Skincare Routine for Busy Moms

Being a mom is most rewarding. But let’s face it, being a full-time mother can be as challenging as time-consuming. Motherhood means juggling day-to-day responsibilities and often struggling to balance work, family, and recreation.

You’ll be dealing with a lot, from the smallest to the most complex matters. Sometimes, it means giving up some things you enjoyed when you were single to give more of yourself to your husband and kids. But every mother should understand that taking care of herself is as critical as taking care of her family.

So, having a simple skincare routine can go a long way in helping moms retain their youthful beauty and feel good about themselves and being a mom. Here are a few skin care tips for every busy mother.

Gentle Cleansing

One of the worst mistakes a woman can make with her skin is to subject it to harsh soaps and cleansers. Another is to wash too often during the day. We suggest a one-time cleansing before bedtime and a gentle rinse in the morning with clean water. At Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville, we offer Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel to gently remove makeup and everyday impurities for a fresh, clean complexion.


When we talk about skin hydration, it involves from within and without. From within requires drinking sufficient amounts of water during the day. From without is using a medical-grade moisturizing cream. Obagi Nu-Derm Hydrate is a moisturizing cream to be used to soothe areas of flaky, dry skin.

Sun Protection

The most dangerous environmental factor for your skin is over-exposure to the sun. Wearing some form of protection is critical, especially during the warmer months. Our 100% mineral-active sun protection, Sunbetter Tone Smart is broad-spectrum protection you can carry conveniently in a tone-adapting compact.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure is commonly performed around the eyes and mouth, effective on uneven skin tones and facial scars.

At The Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville, laser resurfacing is often performed along with another aesthetic procedure, like eyelid surgery or a facelift. Although a facelift or brow lift resolves skin laxity by re-draping tissue, neither operation will improve texture.

Injectables and Fillers

These quick and convenient anti-aging in-office treatments provide youthful, smooth skin over the entire face. Injectable fillers like BOTOX resolves expression lines about the forehead, brow, and crow’s feet. Dermal fillers deliver skin rejuvenation by adding underlying volume to the mid-face and below. The procedures generally take less than a half-hour, making them a perfect fit for any busy mom.
