Connie Britton's Secrets to Being a Do-It-All Single Mom
The "Nashville" star dishes on the key to finding serenity and feeling beautiful as a new mom
That's a good question! I'm a relatively new mom, and I took on a brand new job at the same time [that I adopted my son]. For me, finding a place where I can just sit quietly and meditate is a way for me to relax. Of course, as a mom, it gets harder and harder to do that. So I find one thing that really helps is hanging out with my friends who have kids. A support system is important.
There's a lake by my house in Nashville, and I find if I can just walk down there every now and then, it really relaxes me.
What soothing beauty treatments do you indulge in?
Listen, there's nothing like a good Epsom salt bath. Another thing I love, as simple as it is, is using cold cream on my face -- it's almost like a moisturizing facial, and you can feel it sinking in.
As a mom on the go, what makeup tips do you recommend?
Find the thing that really works and is really functional. I love Pond's towelettes to remove makeup. They're great because they're moisturizing and toning and so easy.
When you don't have much time to get ready, what makes you feel beautiful?
A good bronzer. Enlivening my skin with a little bronzer or tinted moisturizer goes a long way and makes me feel younger.
