As much as it would be great to have beautiful skin for life with minimal effort, for most of us we need a bit of help. Ultraceuticals skin expert, Tracey Beeby has come up with some top skincare tips for mums that address lots of women's skin care concerns too: 
 
1. Skin Concern: Adult Acne
Cause: Out of control hormones such as progesterone and estrogen fluctuations can lead to increased sebum production and clogged pores which is all too common in mums. Stress and sleepless nights can also excaberate this skin condition. 
 
Treatment options: 
1. A-Zyme peels, Mandelic acid peels, Microdermabrasion
2. Try not to over treat the affected skin with too many treatments or products as it may overstimulate the skin
3. Use Vitamin A to control oil flow
 
Treatment/ product recommendation: 
Mandelic Acid Peels – Utilises AHA to quickly decongest, clarify and help control oil production. With proven anti-inflammatory ingredient Niacinamide and potent antioxidant Clove Oil, this peel improves surface congestion and reduces irritation. Ideal for problematic and acne prone skins, this treatment gives the skin a smoother, brighter and clearer complexion.

2. Skin Concern: Dry Skin
Cause: Hormonal fluctuations can play havoc on our skin lipids especially after pregnancy which promotes moisture-starved patches on the face. 
 
Treatment options: 
1. Invest in a quality moisturiser that contains biomimetic technology to support the skin lipid barrier. This technology replaces the components of the skin cells within the epidermis to provide true therapeutic moisturising properties. Ensure you choose one for your skin type – oily, normal, dry, very dry. 
2. Exfoliate using a liquid or physical exfoliator to ensure the moisturiser is absorbed effectively into the skin. Ensure you pay extra attention to elbows, knees and feet.

3. Skin Concern: Tired skin
Cause: Sleepless nights, exhaustion and not taking time out to eat properly or drink enough water can take its toll on even the best skin. 
 
Treatment options:
1. Hands-on pampering facials that include a massage helps not only to relax but to promote blood flow to the muscles and cells within the skin. 
2. Exfoliating / Micodermbrasion / Hydro-Brasion are excellent ways to slough dead skin and reveal a more polished and glowing surface. 
3. For dark circles under the eyes, try an energising mask or Vitamin A that is suitable for the delicate eye area to stimulate the blood supply to the area.
