The Working Mom’s Guide To Great Skin! @PONDS #PONDSPerforms #Sponsored



    It’s amazing how much my skin has changed over the years.  I’m pretty sure that this has had a lot to do with my hectic schedule and the fact that I haven’t always had a regimen in place to care for my skin.  Being a Working Mom, I don’t have a lot of time to spend applying products so I need a quick routine that keeps my skin beautiful and moisturized.

    The way that I have approached my skin care regimen is by making sure that I do specific things throughout the day to improve my overall health as well as the condition of my skin.  This begins from the moment that I get up in the morning to the moment that I lay down to sleep at night.  Trust me, I know what I’m talking about because I have been working full-time since I was sixteen and I know a few things about maintaining great skin.  Check out my advice below:

The Working Mom’s Guide To Great Skin

  • Drink plenty of water-Staying hydrated helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles so it is important to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
  • Wash your face before going to bed-It is important to wash your face before going to bed to remove makeup, dirt, and oil from throughout the day.
  • Eat right-Eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables is much better for your skin and overall health.
  • Stay out of the sun-Protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays with sunscreen and avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight.  The sun can really damage your skin and speed up the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Don’t use harsh cleansing scrubs-Scrubbing and irritating your skin can actually cause acne so be careful what you wash your skin with.


    I have combination skin so it tends to get really oily in certain spots by the end of the day.  As soon as I get home from work I grab POND’S Exfoliating Renewal Wet Cleansing Towelettes and clean all the grime from the workday off my skin.  It is unlike any towelette that I have used before because it contains invigorating beads that gently polish away dull, dry skin while removing dirt and make-up.  The best part is that they are infused with sparkling citrus and cucumber scent that leaves my skin smelling delicious.


    Right before going to bed, I wash my face with POND’S Cold Cream Makeup Remover.  It does a great job of removing any residual make-up that I might have missed.  Since it is Hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin, I don’t have to worry about breakouts or irritation when I use it.  It makes my skin feel fresh and clean and prepares me to get a restful night’s sleep.



    POND’S and Rockettes are experts at having to remove makeup at the end of the day because they don their famous signature red lipstick for all of their performances.  To remove tough stage makeup, they depend on POND’S hard-working products to gently cleanse their skin after every curtain call.

  1. Honestly I need to do more to take care of my skin and keep it healthy! I get so busy that by the end of the evening often my routine goes awry.

  2. My number one tip for good skin is to drink more water! My Mom used to use Ponds cold cream nightly. I can almost smell it from your pictures. I’m intrigued about their cleansing wipes, I’ll have to try them.

  3. I know I should stay out of the sun, but I love a good tan so I bake all summer long 🙁

  4. We’ve used those towelettes before and my girls love them. They use them before bed and it helps keep their complexion under control.

  5. Lisa Brower says

    i love Ponds, I need to try these out, I havent used Ponds in a while!

  6. I use makeup remover towelettes each night and lotion every day.

  7. Lois Alter Mark says

    Ooh, I haven’t used Pond’s in a while. Will definitely have to go back to it.

  8. You know, I have never tried Ponds but heard such good things about it. Might have to give it a try.

  9. I use Ponds wipes on days where I’m in a rush or just too tired to really do my whole regimen, haha. Love Ponds!

  10. Ponds is such an amazing brand – it amazes me how much you can actually use their cream for as well!

  11. I really need to make it a habit to wash my face before I go to bed. I forget and I just really need to do it.

  12. I have a friend who swears by their cold cream for getting makeup off. They’ve been around for a long time.

  13. I LOVE Pond’s cold cream for taking off my makeup. It removes everything completely and doesn’t dry out my skin!

  14. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    My skin has been so dry since we have turned on the heat that I need to do something drastic. I bet this would help with that.

  15. I have combination skin as well and I use an exfoliator once a week but moisturize every day. I remember using ponds years ago but haven’t used them in a while. They worked then, I’m sure it still works so might have to go back to them once again.

  16. mena & taty says

    Daily care is so important. Little basics will do a big difference in the long run. Water and cleaning twice a day are my most important tips

  19. I used this a lot before – I heard Pond’s cold cream is especially wonderful.

  20. amanda ripsam says

    A rule my grandma drilled into my head never use soap ever it’s pore clogging and drys out your skin. Always just use warm water splash it and wipe off with a soft wash cloth or baby wipe or cleansing cloth use moisturizers but not ones with fragrances or oily stuff in them.

  21. I used to always use this brand before i started making my own. It really is the only one I’d ever consider buying!

  22. Ponds was always in my mother and my grandmother’s bathrooms. I have no idea why I haven’t used it as an adult. You’ve got me wanting to go get a jar! I think I will. 🙂

  26. My mom has used the Ponds cold cream for as long as I can remember. And I LOVE the towelettes!

  27. I have been using Pond’s Cold Cream since I was 14 years old. I think it has a lot to do with why my skin still looks great at almost 35!
