As a mom it is so easy to put all your focus on your family and forget about yourself. Before kids, I had all the time in the world to shave my legs, paint my nails, put makeup on just because I wanted to.
But now…my husband is lucky if I shave at all for at least a week. My hair is always up in a messy bun, I never wear makeup unless I get out of the house- which is never!

There are times where I’m comfortable and happy if I get to take a shower. But there a lot of times where I feel like I have let myself go and then I get in this sad mopey mood, and I feel ugly.
So here are some things I have been doing almost everyday because it doesn’t take long, and I feel like a million bucks, and makes me feel sexy
I’ve been pampering my skin every night. I know you’re thinking, “I don’t have time for that.”
But you do! Night time is the busiest, biggest headache time for me, but I make time once the kids are in bed, or at least watching tv in bed…don’t judge.
1.Skin Care- I dry brush my skin. I take one of those brushes you see on the foot scrubbers and I use circular motion and brush my skin while it is dry. This takes off a lot of your dead skin a lot easier.
Then in the shower I use a exfoliating towel, which exfoliates a lot better than a loofa. I use my favorite moisturizing soap, I usually use Dove.
For extra soft and smooth skin use an easy to make homemade brown sugar body scrub. If you don’t have time for the body scrub, use a body oil after the shower. Apply to damp skin and let dry- doesn’t take long.
2. Feet Care- While I’m in the shower I use a pumice stone and scrub my feet. Don’t over do it and do it kind of lightly so it doesn’t damage the skin and make it more scaly.
3. Face Care- After I wash my face I use an exfoliating scrub every other day. Since I’ve been doing this I’ve notice a big difference. My favorite scrub is a gentle oatmeal facial scrub. You can make your own, or buy it. For a deep exfoliation this coffee facial scrub is amazing!
After a my shower I use a daily moisturizer. This one is my favorite so far. I have combination of oily and dry skin and this lotion is perfect for it. It clears redness almost just over night, and makes your skin smooth and supple.
Dress to impress…yourself
Wear something that makes you feel good about yourself. Something that makes you feel sexy no matter what anyone else thinks. Wear cute underwear or lingerie even if no ones sees it. Wear a cute black dress and go on a date even if it’s a in-home date night. Take boudoir photographs to let your inner goddess out.
Take time for yourself WHENEVER you can! Go for a walk and refresh. Go to a yoga class. Go to a coffee shop and read a book. Go for a hike.
When you feel good about yourself it shows, and that is sexy.
