When it comes to motherhood, we all know far too well how crazy the days can get. From running endless errands to keeping a close eye on your little ones, we just can’t seem to catch a break. As a mother of two, Erin Ziering understands how much of a real struggle this all can be.
Residing in Los Angeles, she is mom to 4-year-old Mia and 6-year-old Penna — and wife to 90210 actor Ian Ziering. Erin was an RN nurse for eight years before focusing her time on making her daughters her #1 priority, in addition to running blogs At Home with the Zierings and Millennial Mamas.
Her days are spent juggling tasks like any busy mom — from working to squeezing in quick workouts to preparing meals for her family. Though her mornings are particularly hectic, she squeezes in a little bit of time for herself — on her skincare routine. But she couldn’t do it without her hubby.
“I wake up at 6 AM to take my dog for a run. At 6:30 AM, Ian and the girls wake up. While Ian is making breakfast (his favorite meal to cook), I get ready for my day with a quick face and makeup routine and an easy style for my hair,” Erin tells Babble. “My daughters are in different schools across town from each other and both have to be out the door [by] 7:30 in the morning. While the girls eat, I pack their lunches and style their hair. Ian drives my oldest to her elementary school and I take our youngest to preschool.”
Understanding all that mom life puts on our plate, Erin felt that it was important to share her simple, everyday morning routine with moms everywhere.
“Having a quick and easy beauty routine is essential for the busy, modern mom. Life can be so hectic and having to go from drop-offs to workouts to meetings, your look has to survive it all,” says Erin. “In our community of women, sharing and learning from each other is key to staying calm! I definitely feel like [my routine] is a great mom hack. I sometimes feel like I cheat in many ways!”
Here are Erin’s eight beauty product essentials for a simple look that will leave you feeling great all day long.
