Well, it’s spring.

That time of year we all start unpacking our shorts, unwrapping the scarves, and getting back into our summer beauty routines of pedicures, glow tans, and resistance training. Of course, if you’re a mom, you may no longer have time to indulge in a spontaneous facial or barre class.

The good news is, while motherhood cuts down on time for these treatments, baby is secretly helping you get ready with these hidden beauty boosters. From the silly to the sweet, here’s a roundup of the makeshift routines you can fit into your day to prepare for that summer glow.
