Is Motherhood Aging You?

When doing market analysis I see this heartbreaking problem in my clinic all the time. Women spend time and money on their skin prior to having a baby and then ten years later they are sitting in my treatment room depressed and lost. They have given their heart, sole and body to their family and the price they have paid is that they look 5 to 10 years older than they should. Are you aging faster because you had children.

The marketing and promotion companies have all said to me target 25-35 year old non-mothers and then the 45-75 year old women. Unless you are selling baby/kid products the women with young children will not buy a thing for themselves. This is so sad. The pressure of being the perfect mother is aging the person inside.

How do we stop this travesty? Aging faster because you had children

Studies have shown that a happy mother that still has an interest outside the “baby” is more happy and healthy and so is the baby. Wether this interest is jogging every morning where she can listen to her favourite music. A dance classes once a week. Mine was champagne and candle bath on Sunday afternoon where I pampered myself and did my personal grooming of a weekly exfoliation and hydrating mask. Also I would wake up with my husband at 5am before he went to work to have a quiet cupper together without any children “just our time”. Even though our children have all grown up we still have the cup of tea in the morning it’s a great way to start the day, a half hour date with your partner. This little “me time ritual” was my sanity break, my ability to keep the “Me” in me plus it didn’t cost the earth.

How do you stop yourself from pre-mature aging because you have had a baby? Its simple as demand without guilt a “Me” time that will make you happy. Start today with this 30min treatment.

Mummy Little face lift and Hydrating Rescue mask

1 egg white (tightens, lifts, and firms)

1 lemon or lime wedge, squeezed (brightens, balances)

1 spoonful of honey (moisturizes, hydrates)

1 tablespoon of coconut or olive oil (hydrates and nourish)


Add all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until it becomes a whipped, foamy broth.

Using a wide fan brush or your fingertips, spread mixture evenly on your cleansed face and neck, and chest. Please avoid the lips and around the eyes.

Make a cupper and put you feet up for 20 minutes, or until the mask dries completely.

You may feel a small amount of tingling sensation this is normal, but if there is more intense sensation remove mask immediately,

As the mask beings to dry the mask may begin to feel tight.

Once dried, Wash the mask off with large amount of cool water.

Follow by Applying a moisturizer. And enjoy your new-uplifted face and reduced the aging affects.
