Mother Daughter Beauty Tricks and Skincare Adventures
How do you teach your daughter about healthy skin care routines? I know my Mom tried to create healthy habits in my beauty regimens early on – to make them stick – and that’s what I try to do for my own daughter. I love to involve Kenzie in my own efforts to maintain healthy skin while also beginning to incorporate a routine targeted to the needs of tween and soon to be teenager. Kenzie and I went on a Target run this weekend to stock up on skincare essentials for each of our needs.
For us Mamas, it’s all about preventing wrinkles – or repairing them since we all know those laugh lines can take a toll as the years go by. Am I right??
For our daughters, it’s all about finding a product to help battle or prevent acne.
When it come’s to Mom’s skin, a simple routine of using the right products regularly boosts your skin’s health beautifully. I recommend targeting those wrinkles and moisturizing galore! We were excited to spot so many NEW goodies from brands we love like Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, and Aveeno. Check out our skincare haul below!
Clean & Clear® Triple Clear Bubble Foam Cleanser
When you think of skincare products for tweens and teens, it’s definitely about preventing or treating breakouts and blemishes. Honestly, I can vividly remember my own Mom teaching me to wash my face with just the right cleanser to help me prevent nasty breakouts! And now, I find myself doing the same thing for 11 year old Kenzie. It sounds sentimental, but when it comes to beauty regimens, so much of our routines are shared through the generations Mother Daughter style.
Kenzie picked out the Clean & Clear Acne Triple Clear Bubble Foam Cleanser on our Target run to start using as part of her regular bedtime face washing routine.
With an 11 year old daughter, it’s a bit more about skincare than cosmetics but sharing these moments still makes me feel nostalgic about the time I spent in the bathroom with my own Mom having her share her secrets and watch her put on her makeup in the morning and moisturizers before bedtime!
So lately, I’m helping Kenzie establish that core routine and showing her how to WASH her face and incorporate a great cleanser to prevent and fight acne. She loves her new Clean & Clear routine. Any product that FOAMS is a huge win for kids and she loves how FRESH this cleanser makes her face feel too. And I love that I’m instilling great habits at a young age! Yay!

Favorite Tips to Take Care of Mom’s Skin
I love letting Kenzie see me take care of my skin, so I know that someday — years and years from now – she’ll have learned all these healthy habits and will have had a lifetime of incorporating skincare treatments into her daily routines. So what am I using lately? On our last Target run I picked up a bunch of items that are brand new that focus on my needs – like fighting wrinkles since I’m now 40. Sigh! And of course I love anything that is hydrating, moisturizing and healthy for my skin.
Aveeno® Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial Cleanser
Let’s get real. Who doesn’t love a facial? Facials are always an AMAZING way to take care of your skin and truly give it the deep cleansing treatment your face deserves. But what Mom has time to squeeze in a glorious hydrating facial between juggling work, kids, cooking dinner and driving to all kinds of after school activities in the evening hours everyday of the week??
Enter Aveeno’s brand new Positively Radiant® 60 Second In-Shower Facial. HOORAY! This facial is something you can do at home as part of your shower routine. It feels fantastic and is literally something you can do 1-2 x per week during a shower. I love it! You can feel it tingle a bit too which I love since it’s a great signal to me that it’s really working!
With a price point of $6.99 at Target, the Aveeno Positively Radiant® 60 Second In-Shower Facial shower facial can not be beat!

Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Regenerating Cream
Anything that helps me repair wrinkles somehow is a must have in my arsenal. I’ve been loving the new Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Regnerating Cream. It’s a super moisturizer and feels SO rich when I apply it to my face. I’ve only been using this new fabulous product for less than a week, but I’m optimistic it will help me improve the look of my wrinkles to smooth them out based on my quick results so far. It contains retinol which as you know is one of the most famous anti-aging treatments too. Yay!

- Moisturizes deeply and delivers anti-aging results in just one week
- Combines retinol, the #1 anti-aging ingredient, with superior moisturization – targeting wrinkles and dryness at the same time, with no irritation
- Too rich for an airless pump, the brand developed a patented retinol stability technology that maintains retinol efficacy – even in an open jar form after exposure to oxygen and light
Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Lip Shine 60
Lush lips galore! I love gloss for my lips and I’ve passed on my affinity for hydrated lips to my daughter! Neutrogena’s NEW Hydro Lip Boost is perfect for Mamas and their girls. Kenzie loves the feel of lip gloss and super moisturized lips – especially in the winter. And adding just a tiny smidge of color to gently tint her lips is perfect for an 11 year old. I let her wear the light sorbet shades while I’ll opt for more color – like that offered in a the Vibrant Raspberry Neutrogena Hydro Boost Lip Shine.
