Being a mom and taking care of your skin can be quite a task. After a long day you may just want to crash into bed and forget about life. What I have observed is most of us tend to push our skincare routines to the side and not bother. This could be due to various reasons; for me it was excuses and laziness. I used to tell myself that I don’t need to bother, who cares etc. also after hitting the bed I just didn’t want to go and gather all my products and take time with them.
Most of the time this happens because we don’t spend as much time in front of the mirror as we did before children. Most of us may even hate the idea of looking into the mirror because it reminds us of everything that is wrong with our new mommy bodies. But the fact is, a quiet stare into the mirror can really motivate you, and when you start working that beauty regime again, you’ll be happy to notice the positive difference in your skin. This will also boost your confidence and most importantly make you feel good on the inside.
Here’s my tip: Wash your face before hitting the sack. Keep all your moisturisers, eye creams, gels, lip balms/treatments in the drawer next to your bed. This way you can take care of all your beauty from the bed!
It was worked wonders for me, I love how easy it is, and how practical it makes life. These are the products I keep in my side table drawer:
1. Moisturiser (Neutrogena oil-free Moisture for combination skin)
2. Eye gel (Biotique Bio-seaweed revitalising anti-fatigue eye gel)
3. Lip balm (Vaseline lip-care total moisture)
4. Hand cream (Neutrogena Hand cream)
5. Body lotion (Vaseline total-moisture in Aloe fresh -these keep changing, I only buy small sizes to keep it interesting)
I don’t use all the products every night, but do tend to use them as needed.
My daughter is three now and I have trained her to not interfere with mummys things, however if your child is small and you fear them attacking your things keep them in a box or makeup bag that they won’t be able to open. No more excuses mommy!
