It’s time to get back-to-routine! 

Back-to-school can be a busy time.  With early mornings and a new schedule, P&G wants you to feel prepared!  Now that the first week of school is behind us P&G has no doubt that you have stocked up on books and binders, but it’s time to make sure that you are back into the full routine.

Being a new(ish) Mom, quite often I find it so hard to get into the groove of preparing a fail-proof skin care and beauty regimen for those early mornings. You know a routine that can hide my tired skin and the bags under my eyes. However, I don’t need to sweat it this season… OlayCOVERGIRL and Secret have me and many other Mom’s covered!

Put your best face forward…

Waking up early to organize the kids can be tiring, and for many (like me), dark under-eye circles and puffiness are a concern! With COVERGIRL + Olay The De-Puffer Eye Concealer you will look well-rested and ready to tackle the day – even though you may not always feel that way. Using warmer, brighter shading to counteract dark circles and Olay rejuvenating serum to soothe under eye puffiness, the concealer is applied through a unique cooling metal tip applicator, reducing the look of fatigue around the eyes for a more youthful appearance!

You can also reveal your skin’s natural luminosity and radiance with Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream – improving the appearance of pores and uneven skin tone for a flawless, airbrushed finish. If firmer looking skin is your dream, try COVERGIRL + Olay FaceLift Effect Firming Makeup. This dermatologist-tested formula includes Olay FaceFirm technology for all-day hydration and skin renewal, improving skin’s natural firmness in just two weeks with continued use.

Give her a good foundation…

This time of year a big change and adjustment for mom, and we all know a little help from the wise goes a long way during a period of transition!  If you have a teen daughter now  is a better time than ever to bond with her and pass along some of your key beauty and skincare tips.

A few great products worth checking out are… Olay Fresh Effects {Acne Control Scrub!} Salicylic Acid Acne and Blackhead Clearing Scrub,  a clearing scrub designed to provide unstoppable freshness that lasts all day. For those early school mornings Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer is perfect. It will awaken and re-energize skin with its feather-light gel, packed with an instant boost of cooling hydration and COVERGIRL Ready, Set Gorgeous Concealer will help cover those imperfections and dark circles that we all love to hate.  You can even top off the final part of your morning beauty routine with, COVERGIRL Ready, Set Gorgeous Liquid Foundation.

Don’t sweat the small stuff…

Does the back-to-school hustle and bustle have you sweating more than ever with drop offs, after school activities and everything in between? Never fret, Secret has introduced two new additions to the Secret Clinical Strength collection – Invisible Solid and Clear Gel – to keep you cool and collected during even the busiest of times.

    I am entering your giveaway.
    It would be great to win a P&G Back-to-Routine Kit for my mother.
    In response to your question of
    What are your tips for easing back into the back-to-school routine?
    My tips are make lunches the night before school. Older children should help or make their own. Give them the option to buy lunch in school if they prefer and finances permit.
    Set alarm clocks. Have school-age children set their own alarm clocks to get up in the morning. Praise them for prompt response to morning schedules and bus pickups.
    Leave plenty of extra time. Make sure your child has plenty of time to get up, eat breakfast, and get to school. For very young children taking the bus, pin to their shirt or backpack an index card with pertinent information, including their teacher’s name and bus number,
    as well as your daytime contact information.
    Thank you for having this giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!

    As far as beauty wise, choose easy to use products – products like a fast absorbing moisturizer that comes with SPF, foundation that bends easily, 2-in-1 products- so you don’t have to spend too much time in the morning getting ready! that way you can spend that saved time elsewhere like preparing healthy lunches or breakfast

    Normally the routine would be to start going to sleep early a week or two beforehand. If that fails, then start a week or two beforehand *and* set the clocks fast so they think it’s bedtime when really it’s much earlier than that. When the early routine set in, then you can correct the clocks.

    Get into an early bed time routine, buy school supplies earlier in the summer, start eating healthier lunches and make them before bed.

    I start getting the kids into an earlier bedtime routine a week or two before school starts. Then they are easier to get up in the AM!

    Be prepared, and have everything ready to go so you’re not running around like a maniac in the morning.

    always do as much as you can in the evening before bedtime, to allow for the mornings ro run smoothly. Depending on the ages of children, depends on how much Mom does and how much the children can do. As they grow designate new tasks to them to reach responsibility at a rate that the child can handle..:-)

    I always start the bedtime routine about a month before school starts so the kids are used to the regular bedtime routine and time

    The best tip that i can think of is to make sure the kids go to bed at a descent time. It’s a long day for them and it can be tough on them if they are tired.

    kids thrive on routine – let them know if there will be any changes due to holidays, events, etc beforehand.

    Tip: My tip is not to wait until 2 days before school begins to get the kiddos geared up for earlier bed times and dinner time changes. I always started at least 2 weeks prior to school starting. It makes it so much easier for when the big day arises.
