5 skin tips for time-poor mums


Of all the people in our lives, our mums play a vital role in shaping us into the people we become. Whether it’s rejoicing in our triumphs or providing a shoulder to cry on, mothers are pros at juggling a whole range of responsibilities. However, sometimes keeping up this impressive balancing act can mean mums don’t leave enough time to look after themselves.

This is why, in honour of Mother’s Day, we at Ultraceuticals thought we’d lend a helping hand with these top skincare tips for busy mums.

When you’re a mum, no two days are ever the same.

1. Don’t forget to cleanse… twice!

With all the dirt and grime that builds up on the skin’s surface throughout the day, cleansing is one of the most vital components of any skincare routine. Rather than using makeup wipes, which can be abrasive and drying, we recommend a double cleanse using our soothing Ultra Hydrating Milk Cleanser.

It’s easy to incorporate into your routine, and leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. The first cleanse is to remove makeup or grime, while the second is to really give the skin a good deep clean. Find your perfect cleanser here.

2. Keep calm, it’s just a pimple

In today’s hectic, non-stop world, no one has time for pimples, least of all busy mums! That’s why Ultraceuticals has come to the rescue with our Ultra Clear Spot Treatment – the perfect secret weapon for managing unexpected pimples.

The formula contains exfoliating Bromelain, Salicylic and Mandelic Acids, in addition to soothing Vitamin E Phosphate to address breakouts and target irritation.

3. Moisturise and protect in one step

To take the best possible care of your skin it’s important to provide it with sufficient hydration, as well as protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. But rather than relying on two different products to cover these bases, time-poor mums can turn to the Ultra Protective Daily Moisturiser range.

This daily moisturiser comes with broad spectrum SPF protection to ensure you leave the house ready to face the day, no matter the weather.

4. How about an exfoliating hack?

Many of us know that we should be exfoliating on a regular basis, but with everything else going on, it can be an easy step to miss. Make life easier by keeping an exfoliator like the Ultra Gentle Exfoliating Gel in the shower to use a few times per week, so you don’t have to go out of your way to keep your skin feeling revitalised.

5. Makeup like you woke up like this 

If you don’t like leaving the house with a bare face, but don’t want the hassle of a complex makeup routine, the Ultra Complete Correction Range could be the perfect match for you. The mineral makeup not only provides natural-looking coverage, but also delivers brightening and anti-ageing ingredients – talk about packing a punch in a small package!
