Being a mom is a 24/7 gig. In between feeding and changing diapers there’s little to no time for beauty. But when it comes to beauty and motherhood, former beauty queen and new mom Caitlin Rose Dahlin knows the best of both worlds.
If you’re a busy mom with a busy life, Caitlin’s 3 beauty hacks can give you the confidence boost you’ve been looking for. Best of all, they can be penciled into your busy schedule.
Hack #1: Skincare
Ah, skincare… Boy, does your skin change so much while pregnant and postpartum! The most important thing to remind yourself is that the changes in your skin may not be permanent. Something that helps me is using iTAN’s Photo Facials twice per week. The Photo Facials consist of a 20-minute session that uses LED light emitting both red and near infrared light designed to rejuvenate and restore the skin on your face. Not only have I seen huge improvements in my skin, but it’s so relaxing and peaceful to have some alone time during the week!
Another service that has been seriously what I would call life changing is the FIT Bodywrap. It utilizes far infrared heat to promote weight and pain management, and detoxification. The FIT Bodywrap has helped my skin detox while breaking down cellulite. Plus, what busy mom could complain about an hour of me-time?
Hack #2: Hairstyle
Being a new mom can be so challenging at times, so my go-to for a quick and effortless look is dry shampoo and a cute messy bun! In seconds, I can rock a cute look that I can dress up or down and will last me throughout the day without having to worry about my hair getting pulled and tugged on. Mastering the messy bun took me a couple times, but now you can see me rocking it all around town!
Hack #3: Makeup
My go-to everyday look includes a little bit of BB cream, bronzer, blush and mascara. For a night out, something as simple as putting on a pair of false lashes with eyeliner transforms my daily look into more of a dramatic glam that only takes seconds to add!
My go-to looks aren’t complete without my weekly Mystic spray tans from iTAN! I will say, having a fresh tan makes me feel better and makes everything look so good! My favorite Mystic combination is the Magical Medium with an enhancer combined with the Mocha-Kyssed bronzer. It gives me just the right amount of glow that ties in my quick makeup routine, making me look like an all-star new mommy!
