As a busy stay at home mom, I don’t have much time to luxuriate by myself. I have my two little buddies with me at all times – I wouldn’t want it any other way – but taking a few minutes out for me every day is important so I can be the best mom I can to my boys. One tip I give to new mamas is to carve out a few minutes every day just for you to regroup and breathe, I call it the 5-Minute Recharge.
One of my top ways to recharge is with a little skin pampering. We recently built a new home and our master bathroom is truly a retreat. We designed it to be spa-like: clean, bright and soothing. I’m taking some new Bioré® Natural Charcoal products that I just picked up at Target for a 5-Minute Recharge.
Picture this: two boys in the jumbo cart and little me trying my best to steer it without running anyone over. Target is hands-down our favorite store and a great place to spend a hot summer afternoon. We try to save our Target run for later in the day so we can escape the heat while we pick up our weekly items and peruse new products. My little guys give me about .08 seconds to pause anywhere other than in the toy aisles, so I have to be quick in the Complexion Care section looking for the new Bioré® products with Natural Charcoal, known for its ability to draw out and trap deep-down impurities. Luckily the Bioré® products were front and center.
First up, in my 5-Minute Recharge is the the Bioré® Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. I’ve never seen anything like it! The cleanser pumps out black but lathers white and rinses clean. Its oil-free formula is gentle enough for everyday use even though it feels like a deep cleanser. It purifies pores to leave your face deeply cleaned and your skin tingly-smooth. I love a tingly clean sensation and could instantly see how all of my makeup and grit from the day was washed away after just one use.
This is the clean and makeup-free face that this blogger rarely shows you.
Next up in my 5-Minute Recharge routine is the Bioré® Self Heating One Minute Mask. This unique formula heats on contact to open pores and remove pore-clogging dirt and oil.
This is Bioré® Self Heating One Minute Mask gives you purified pores in one minute, so take that time and enjoy! One of my favorite yoga instructors told me to try to make your exhale longer than your inhale and your body quickly relaxes. Breathe in for a count of five, out for a count of ten. Visualize breathing in fresh new air and exhaling anything you don’t need. This one minute of deep breathing self-care will last all day.
How’s that for multi-tasking? Most competitive masks take 10 minutes, and an appointment at the spa takes at least an hour. My 5-Minute Recharge leaves me feeling transformed with tingly clean skin and restored patience, ready to conquer the rest of the day, thanks to some fast acting Bioré® products with Natural Charcoal. I mean, look at me – I look like a poster of a relaxed mom! Don’t you hang out in your bathroom like this, too?
