When we moms aren’t busy working, homeschooling, feeding our families and generally trying to keep our shit together, we have been known to try and snatch back some of our youth (and fake some sleep) via the best skin care products out there. There’s been a surge in skin care’s cool factor of late — perhaps because self-care is so necessary right now. Or maybe it’s just nice to see a smooth, refreshed face looking back at us in the mirror instead of our standard up-all-night look.
But there are just so many products out there — how to begin? To help you navigate through the myriad anti-aging agents and refreshing items available, here is a list of tried-and-true favorites from moms who know what’s up. These are the very best, most sought-after items in skin care-savvy moms’ medicine cabinets. And there’s something for everyone — whether you can spring for the buzzed-about Vintner’s Daughter wonder serum or just want to add a $5 Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm to your Amazon cart, you’ll find something worthwhile here. So treat yourself; a little self-care can be a lifesaver.
