**Advice needed***

So the past 5 months have been chatioc! I'm a single working mom,my children are 4 months old and 3 years old! Between work running to daycare cooking and cleaning and waking up at all hours of the night I constantly look like death! Im neglecting my self like really letting my self go! Any words of wisdom on how to get my dark circles to lighten up? And ways to relax with 2 little ones and nobody around to help? Any advice will be appreciated! Picture is for reference on just how rough I look and I can't seem to make the time to pamper myself😪

    Girl I have been exactly in the same situation. When the kids are younger sleep is a nice fantasy. lol I think if you can get a quick night time skin care routine down while they are sleeping it will help. It Cosmetics Confidence in your Beauty Sleep is a good moisturizer you can use at night and it sticks with you the next day, so if you are in a rush that is one less step in the morning. Mario Badescu's DERMONECTIN EYE CREAM is a good one that you can also use at night that will stay with you the next day. I think these two products would be perfect for you and will have you skin ready for makeup etc the next day, without you having to do a skin care routine in the morning. As mothers it can be difficult for us to get anytime to take care of ourselves, and hope these suggestions can help you out. I'm on twitter @missyoakley79 if you ever have any questions or ever need anyone to talk to you. I am also a single mother. Being a single mother is hard,and your kids are very lucky to have a mom that puts them first. BTW you are beautiful just the way you are.

    Whew ! I do remember those days well. Looking back I realize how very tired I was. I did not like having to put my children in daycare and then before and after School care but You do what you have to do. We are women hear us roar ! It feels like hell but we get through it. I suggest ice and tea bags for the most immediate relief of dark circles and or puffiness. If you know of other single moms try to work a one day a week thing where you take hers for the day and she takes yours for a day. Not a day to clean or for you to go do errands. Let it all go and rest. You will make it through and it will feel rewarding. Honestly it never stops you are a mom. Stay level headed and strong. God Bless You !!

    Hang in there, girl. I am sure you are just exhausted. Keep up the hard work and hold those little ones close because they grow up so fast. I have been using Earth to Skin Citrus day gel from Walmart. I just love it. I have noticed that my eyes seem a little brighter and my skin is a little glowy. It is not expensive either. I think I paid like $8.94. I wish you the best of luck and really hope things get a little easier for you!
