Effective Skincare Routine Tips for Glowing Skin

Getting glowing, healthy, plump, young-looking skin at home is possible with a few simple and effective tips. Here are some ways to achieve a radiant complexion without leaving your house:

  1. Stay hydrated: Drinking enough water is essential for keeping your skin hydrated and healthy. Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily to help flush out toxins and keep your skin plump and youthful. I find it helpful to have a cute water bottle to motivate me to drink enough water. Also – cucumbers offer a ton of hydrating benefits!

  2. Exfoliate regularly: Exfoliating your skin helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub or a chemical exfoliant like glycolic acid or salicylic acid to slough away dead skin cells and reveal fresh, glowing skin. (I love O Naturals Ultra Hydrating Coconut Body Scrub, Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub, and one from Cetaphil.)

3. Moisturize daily: Moisturizing your skin is important for keeping it soft, supple, and hydrated. Choose a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type and apply it daily to help prevent dryness and flakiness. (I like this CeraVe one!)

4. Use a face mask: Face masks can help to give your skin a quick boost of hydration and radiance. Add a face mask to your morning routines! Look for masks that contain ingredients like honey, avocado, or vitamin C to help brighten and nourish your skin.

5. Get enough sleep: Getting enough sleep is crucial for allowing your body to repair and regenerate. Lack of sleep can cause your skin to appear dull and tired, so aim to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Using a helpful tool like Sleepbd might be very beneficial for you. Maybe explore the benefits of yoga and your mental health when examining your sleep quality.

6. Eat a healthy diet: Eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and fats can help nourish your skin from the inside out. Foods like salmon, avocado, and blueberries contain antioxidants and vitamins.

Life is so busy and can get so chaotic, and it`s lovely to think of having a consistent routine that is centered all around yourself and caring for yourself. But the odd time, I have been able to get in 2-3 days of a beauty routine. It will usually consists of washing my face and brushing my hair, which is nothing compared to many lovely bloggers, but for me, it is a mountain I am climbing. I feel wonderful when I can reach the top and finish my little routine. It feels really wonderful to set aside time to care for myself. It is even wonderful to believe that I am worth the time. Self-care is everything.

I will set some personal goals to help myself find the time to care for myself.

My Personal Beauty Routine

  1. Take the time to wash, condition, and deep condition my hair at least twice a week.
  2. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
  3. Enjoy a bath once a week WITHOUT feeling guilty for stepping away from being a mom.
  4. Wash my face EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.
  5. Wear a piece of jewelry every day. (I love jewelry but never find the time, and I don`t try to do it.

But, I am learning that beauty does not necessarily need to imply make-up.  While I may not have the energy to apply makeup regularly, I can incorporate beauty in many other areas of my life. And that’s where my effective skincare routine tips for glowing skin really come in handy. And being a mom who struggles with mental health, I need all the effective skincare routine tips for glowing skin!

So, I have gone days without caring for myself, sadly. The realness of life with mental illness can be ugly. I have gone days without brushing my hair. Days without even washing it. Days without showering. My list, sadly, goes on. When the lows hit me, my demons won`t allow anything. I try to be stronger, but I fail. Every… single…. time. The things that will help me feel better are the things that I can`t find the energy or motivation to do. This is where my self-love goals jump in. It`s the little things that I often neglect. I care for my children, even when my mental health is bad. But, as for me, I neglect myself. I`m sure this is the reality for many. I don`t even think that neglect is the right word to use. When my mental health suffers, these beauty/self-care habits don`t pop into my head. So I`m making these goals with the hopes they become a routine. My skincare routine is probably very odd compared to most, but essentially, my goal is to care for myself and allow myself to take the time to have a routine.

    I don’t have a set beauty routine but I definitely agree: taking the time to take care of yourself is super important! I’d love to set aside time for a bath once a week; I find them so relaxing ?

    My beauty routine is not as professional as others but I always moisturise like you and wash my face with warm water. I use very few products and the ones I do are natural and vegan. Also drinking loads of water helps your skin I believe!
    Thank you for sharing.

    There is definately a great deal to learn about this topic.
    I really like all the points you’ve made.

    Wow, I dont officially suffer with
    mental health, but some days ( usually on weekend) I trully feel this way. A list helps me to motivate me. I am a detailed oriented person that requires me to achieve something or tick off a list of to do’s inorder to be happy with myself.
    I think your beauty list is great, I may need to make one for myself on weekends so I dont forget about me.
    Good luck with your list

    I was always made to feel guilty about not having a beauty routine. I loved this post ❤️

    So you don’t have a solid, regimented routine? So what! You need to do whatever you need to do on any given day. If that means the very basic “wash face, brush teeth” and that’s it, then so be it! I find it difficult to stick to a routine too sometimes. “Self-care” as they call it, can totally depend on my mood also. You do you!

  7. Nyxie

    This was very informative, especially for someone who has next to no skin or beauty routine. And I wonder why my skin is suffering! Thank you so much for sharing this, you’ve certainly given me some ideas 🙂

  8. Aaliyah

    Not everyone has a specific routine and I think that’s ok! I always think that people should do what makes them happy and setting those goals is really great! X

    I really liked your take on the meaning of beauty. You’re so right, internal beauty is even more important than external beauty. Thanks for sharing!

    I don’t have a beauty routine. I am lucky to shower twice a week! I haven’t worn makeup in many years. It’s never really been my thing, and once I learned my husband does not like it, that gave me the license to stop bothering with it. Once I feel like I can trust the kids to be alone while I shower, that will happen more often. At least my curly hair prefers being washed less often.

    I like that you raised the question about whether or not your mental health is part of your beauty! I think it TOTALLY is. Also, beauty is not just in how much makeup you put on, but on the N-side ;). Great post!

    Sorry to hear you are going through this. But you’re right, on a good day just getting up and doing one thing can be beneficial and help you avoid falling into a hole.

  13. Jess

    I love reading other skincare/beauty routines! As someone with a busy schedule its often easy to take some time to pamper yourself. Your routine sounds lovely but also achievable which is great. I never understand those who fit in a massive routine every day though I’m sure their skin loves them for it.

    Thank you for sharing.

    My heart felt every part of this post. As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression, I understand how hard a simple routine can be. Just getting to the mirror is sometimes the hardest part. Each one of us suffers differently so unfortunately I don’t have the right words to help you through this. All I can say is, regardless of the voices in your head, you deserve to love yourself so fiercely. Even at your worst. This post was so raw and realistically different. Thank you for sharing.

    I can so relate to it. Due to my physical and mental health I never have the motivation to do much. For me taking a bath, brushing and combing is an accomplishment. At the end of the day, we are trying our best.

  16. Sarah Winton

    My beauty routine changes with my moods too. When I’m feeling a lot of anxiety I just can’t be bothered with it. I know what it’s like to go days without caring for yourself at all and self-care can mean doing the smallest things.

  17. Rachael

    It’s so refreshing that you admit to not having a beauty routine and being a bit haphazard in the morning! I do have a routine that I stick to but that’s only because I’m a bit haphazard too and have to have a routine to prevent myself being late for everything!

    1. Yaya

      Really enjoyed this! My routine has suffered recently bc of bad health and I’m just getting back into it.
