One of the hardest things about tending to a newborn baby is the lack of time you have to take care of yourself. Regular beauty routines are usually cut in order to give your baby the attention that it needs. Having said that, it is not impossible to give yourself a little bit of pampering, you just have to take some shortcuts. Here are some tips on how to look great and feel great post-pregnancy.
Use Dry Shampoo
Didn’t have time to shower last night? Avoid limp, dull looking hair with dry shampoo, like the well-known Batiste one. Your hair will instantly look refreshed and clean with added volume and texture. Obviously it is important to get in real showers when you can, but on those days when it just doesn’t seem possible dry shampoo is a great hair pick-me-up.
Apply Tinted Moisturizer
Who has time to apply a full face of makeup in the morning when they are dressing and feeding a newborn baby? When applying foundation and powder simply seems out of the question, rely on your favourite tinted moisturizer for glowing skin. We love the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer with SPF for radiant skin and a hint of colour that will keep you from looking washed out.
Rely On Concealer
Considering you won’t be getting much sleep, dark circles will inevitably form under your eyes. Fool people into thinking you are getting a full night sleep with an under eye concealer like Benefit’s Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer. The award-winning concealer will easily cover up dark circles and discolouration without creasing or fading.
Drink Lots Of Water
Staying hydrated is the key to looking fresh, healthy, and to avoid appearing worn out. While we know that you are constantly caring for you baby, it is important to also take care of yourself. That involves nourishing and hydrating your own body as well, which means getting in the recommended 8 cups per day. We promise you will look better and feel better because of it!
Get Some Sleep
Sleep is important to a healthy beauty regimen, but becomes somewhat of a lost cause when you have a baby. While we know that your newbornwill totally throw off your sleeping schedule, always try to sleep when your baby sleeps. It will help you to regain your strength, look refreshed and prevent you from becoming completely worn out.
