As parents, we spend almost all of our time and energy focused on our kids. We once had many hours to look after ourselves, work out, and get beauty sleep, but the onset of parenthood has changed a lot in our lives. Parenthood means enduring constant changes to our lifestyle, so much so that now, we only take care of our own needs last.
The fact is, parenting is essentially an endless barrage of stress, and all of these new factors can take a toll on us both internally and externally. Between the kisses, cuddles and adorable smiles from your little one, there’s all the stress associated with looking after them.
We may not realise it, but all the aggressors from the hectic parenting life do take its toll on our skin.
Parenting brings big changes
From late nights and sudden changes in lifestyle to poor diet and hydration, it’s no wonder that parenting can lead to skin flare ups.
All parents would’ve had the experience of having the little one wake up crying at 2am and then spending the next two hours trying to get them to go back to sleep. After all that, the last thing you’re thinking about is your skincare routine!
If all these lifestyle changes aren’t enough to leave you with sensitive skin, there are also other external factors that can irritate the skin. The combination of Singapore’s equatorial climate combined with icy cold blasts of air-conditioner every time you step indoors create unfavourable conditions for your skin.
It is no wonder then that we experience ‘bad skin days’ – days when you experience skin sensitivities like dryness, redness, itchiness, or roughness.
How can you overcome your bad skin days?
The problem with identifying and treating sensitized skin is that it’s a temporary condition. You might go days, even weeks, where your skin is flawless, but then suffer through days where your itchy, red or dry skin drive you crazy.
Global beauty brand, Lancôme, has patented two products that will help to alleviate those bad skin days, so parents may continue being supermums and dads while having great skin.
The Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum is a daily serum that will improve your skin’s radiance and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The texture of this serum is lightweight and gets easily absorbed into the skin without leaving an oily residue. The result? Skin that looks healthier in just seven days! Even the bottle is carefully designed with a self-loading dropper, so you get the right amount of serum every time you use it.
The Advanced Génifique Sensitive Serum, on the other hand, is your go-to rescue serum for periods when you suffer from skin woes. Power-packed with antioxidants and probiotics, its patented formula soothes inflammation, repairs and strengthens skin, while activating your skin’s youth. It is recommended that you use this one-month treatment two to three times a year when you experience skin sensitivities.
