Beauty and I – Why being a Parent Doesn’t stop Me being Me

Facebooktwitterpinterestinstagram

Often when we become parents, our beauty regime falls by the wayside. In the blur of sleepless nights and dirty nappies, stopping to think about what we look like is a rare occurrence. Babies don’t stay little forever though, once you’ve got a bit of a routine in place finding time to look after yourself gets much easier.

Having a good routine can help you to feel more human and more like your old self, becoming a parent doesn’t have to change every aspect of your life after all! I’ve found that with a few little adjustments, it’s easy for me to spend a little time pampering myself each day. It leaves me ready to face the world and whatever my little people decide to throw at me!

Here’s a little look into my super simple, yet effective beauty regime:

Skin –

Looking after our skin is so important! I use a non-greasy moisturiser every morning to make my skin feel healthy and supple. I also use an eye brightening serum, to reduce any dark circles that may be lurking! I always spend a minute taking my make up off before bed too, so that my skin can breathe during the night.

Make up –

I like my make up to look clean and fresh during the daylight hours. I use a light foundation that I can apply really quickly, to cover any dark circles and blemishes. I then brush a little blusher across my cheek bones to give myself a healthy glow! I finish the look off with a good quality mascara, which makes me look more awake than I feel and I’m ready to go!

Hair –

I like to keep my hair in an easy, low maintenance style. I simply don’t have the time to spend more than ten minutes sorting my locks each day. So I keep my hair long and pin it up into a nice, neat style. It’s on trend, simple and makes me look and feel smart enough to face the outside world!

Nails –

I love my nails to look great, sporting a good set is a real confidence boost! I like to apply gels or acrylics every few weeks. The hardiness of these types of nail application means that day to day, my nails take no time at all to look after. No more touching up chipped nails, or worrying about them looking bare and boring!
