What's your daily routine? For a lot of moms, it involves getting up, throwing on the usual outfit, preparing the day’s needs for the family, and so on. You have probably gotten so used to living a non-stop life that it's only when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror that you may feel a jolt of surprise: "Is that really me? When did I get so old? Why don't I look like my age?"
It's little things like the way you do your makeup and even the style of your hair that can make you look older than you really are. Don't panic—you don't have to undergo a complete makeover. It's just the little details that you need to change, so here's what you can do:
Be careful when you style your hair. You're probably rushing most days, so the hotter your blow dryer or hair iron is, the faster your hair dries and the more quickly you finish prepping. The thing is, this can lead to hair breakage, which thins your hair and makes you look older.
TIP: Use your styling tools sparingly, maybe two to three times a week. And when you do, settle for the medium heat setting. Remember to hold the dryer at least six inches away from your head, and don't forget to use a heat-protection serum.

Put on a little makeup. Even if you're rushing around all the time, don't take your face for granted. Use some lip and cheek tint to brighten your face, moisturize whenever you can, and apply some powder. You also have to make sure you use the right makeup and understand the correct application.
TIP: The easiest and quickest fix is to invest in the right makeup. Pencil in your brows with a few, short strokes. Get the right shade of foundation. Get your blush going with the correct application. You can learn from expert YouTube makeup tutorials. You may even find yourself enjoying in the process.
