When you’re a busy mom of three, time is of the essence, so we sat down with this superwomen, RachelAnne, to learn a thing or two about how she finds balance in her busy world.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a mama to three amazing children, living on a small six-acre farm by the busy city of Atlanta. One of my favorite things to do with the children is go outside and enjoy all of that sunshine! After a long day of play, we come back inside and clean up for dinner and then bunker down and read books together and cuddle up. I love alone time after the children are down for bed, but wouldn’t change this busy motherhood life for anything!
Can you describe your skin type (i.e. Is your skin usually oily, dry or normal)?
My skin has always been extremely dry and requires lots of extra moisture to keep it soft and from breaking out. It’s been a sore-spot since middle school, and finally in college, I got a hold on my skin care routine once I realized I needed to moisturize!
What are your skin goals?
My current skin goals are to keep my skin acne-free and keep bags from under my eyes, especially being up all night with a new baby, as well as two older children.
When you need to de-stress, what is your go-to?
The best de-stresser for me is some alone time with a chai tea and a book in hand. I love to soak in our clawfoot tub and then pamper myself with skin care indulgences.
Can you share your best multitasking tips in for both your everyday life and your skincare routine?
Being a mom of three keeps me on my feet, but I always take the time in the morning to teach the children to brush their teeth while I’m washing my face and preparing my skin for whatever lies ahead in our day. I like incorporating whatever I’m doing in my conversation with my older children by telling them how important it is to clean our faces and keep our skin healthy and happy!
Favorite thing about being a mom?
My hands-down favorite part of being a mother is watching my children grow into their personalities. My oldest daughter is spunky and so artistic, my son is bashful and just a teddy bear who loves snuggles, and of course, the baby is the light of my life. I love watching them smile and interact with each other and seeing how they are learning to play well together.
Do you have any tips for new moms trying to find a work-life balance?
My best advice for any mother trying to balance everything is get a routine down. It doesn’t have to look like anybody else’s around them, just something that suits the needs of their families and to be sure to take care of themselves and prioritize that time.
