Don't you agree that mummies are all heroes? From pregnancy, giving birth, to raising up a child, being a mother requires a tremendous amount of sacrifice, both physically and emotionally. Mums are constantly prioritizing others over themselves, and unfortunately, as we age, this neglect will show on our skin.
We know that it’s hard for mums to find time for themselves, so we have compiled some of the most efficient Korean products to make skincare easier for all the mums out there:
1. Multitasking cleanser
Mummies are best at multitasking, and so should the products you use! One of my favourite multi-taskers is this low-pH Kicho Natural Mineral Foaming Cleanser, which can be used not just for your face, but also your hair and body! Formulated with mild ingredients, it’s even gentle enough to use for children.
2. Eye Cream
The skin around the eyes is thinner and is constantly under a lot of stress, which is why all mummies need an eye cream that can counter all those sleepless nights. A good eye cream will brighten, firm and reduce fine lines around the eye area, so you won’t be needing those concealers anymore! The Whamisa Organic Flowers Eye Essence is a lightweight yet deeply hydrating eye essence enriched with 95.0% organic ingredients that brightens, firms and reduces fine lines around the eye area.
3. Pimple patches
Whether it’s the hormones or the stress, mummies are prone to breakouts. This is especially true for mummies-to-be too, but harder because a lot of acne treatments like benzoyl peroxide and retinoids have been ruled out during pregnancy. The easiest way to treat pimples is then through acne patches like the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch, which are invisible stickers you can put over your acne to heal it overnight.
Korean toners do not only help your other skincare products penetrate more effectively, but also keep your skin hydrated and balanced all day long. Because mummies still want that glow even long after the pregnancy, right? One of our most popular toners is the Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Essence Toner - a rich, serum-like, fermented toner enriched with 97.4% organic ingredients for a boost of hydration and nourishment.
5. Sheet Masks
There’s nothing like Korean sheet masks for instant pick-me-ups. From hydration to anti-ageing, Nudie Glow’s extensive list of mask babes has everything for every skin concern. A little tip: If you’re looking for a more heavy-duty mask that won’t budge even while you are running around with your kids, the Make P:rem Soothing Layering Double Mask might be the one for you.
