In the midst of looking after your new baby and recovering from pregnancy, it can be difficult to find the time to juggle an in-depth beauty routine daily. However, there are many minimalistic ways that you can create a beauty regime that will make you feel happy and confident in your own skin while also fitting in with your daily schedule and the needs of your children. In this article, it will explain the elements which you should prioritise in your regime to add a sprinkle of self-care into your everyday life. 

Look After Your Skin

As a mum, the focus on your skincare routine may have diminished as you struggle to balance all of your new commitments. However, as you age, this could have severe effects on the appearance of your skin, leaving it dry and dull. Not only this, but the imbalance of hormones in pregnancy can lead to acne before the birth and during early motherhood, which can be alleviated with a proper skincare routine. One of the most important products to use is a moisturiser, which can help to soften and tighten your skin; you should use moisturiser on a twice-daily basis, and choose from the many different types available, such as anti-aging. However, if your skin is dry and broken beyond repair, you should consider a range of cosmeceutical skin care products and serums, which can help to repair damaged skin and reverse aging, as well as caring for skin conditions that may be found during pregnancy. 

Opt for Minimalism 

Not every mother will have time for an extensive beauty regime every morning. However, late nights and early wake-up calls can leave you with tired skin and eyes that you may wish to rejuvenate. In these cases, you should opt for a minimalist routine and consider what your priorities are when it comes to your make-up routine. For instance, a dash of mascara and concealer can help you to look more awake without the need for extensive foundation or powder. 

Work With Your Hair

Washing and styling your hair can be extremely time-consuming during motherhood, and many mums are looking for ways to limit their focus on this chore. If you want to ensure that your hair looks great without spending time on styling, you need to work with your natural hair, skipping the salon-style products and leaving it to dry naturally. To boost the appearance of your hair, you should try adding a layer of coconut oil before you go to bed, which can help to stop frizz and condition your hair naturally. You can also try putting your hair into overnight braids, which can help your hair to dry quickly without the need for styling or hairdryers and can even create stylish waves when you wake up. 

Invest in Professional Services

You should also consider the benefits of hiring professional services to perform beauty routines for you regularly. These include services such as eyebrow threading and waxing, hair dying, manicures, eyelash extensions and eyebrow embroidery. These semi-permanent solutions can help save time on your daily routine while helping you to look spectacular as soon as you wake up.
