Being a mother is not an easy job. It is a full-time job, where you have to sweat it out 24*7 to get the best for your child. In bringing up and nurturing the child, the mother often forgets herself. She stops taking care of herself. With so much hard work and slogging throughout the day, a mother deserves some quality time for herself.
For her children, a mother will diligently follow every skin and body care routine. However, when it comes to doing the same for herself, she will happily give it a miss. The following skin care routine is vital for healthy skin and every mother must practice them.

2. Sleeping without makeup on
Makeup undoubtedly adds an extra spark to your already pleasing personality. Many women feel helpless and vulnerable without makeup. However, more than wearing makeup, removing it is important. Your skin is sensitive and the chemicals present in makeup can damage it. Mothers often fail to remove their makeup before retiring to bed. The problem, unfortunately, is not ignorance, but the lack of time or extreme tiredness. We understand that you are tired, but sleeping with the makeup on will do your skin more harm than good.

Using a good homemade or readymade scrub (body as well as face) at least once a week is not much work and every woman must make time for it, as she deserves beautiful skin.
5. Fruits and vegetables
Different fruits and vegetables can take care of many skin problems - from wrinkles to fine lines, skin rashes to acne. Consuming them is one way to get great skin, but you can also make fruit packs with fruits like banana and papaya, which are known for their moisturising properties.
