When you have just had your baby, your body image is at its lowest. The extra body weight and an exhausted face can make you feel quite depressed. There are, however, ways to make your appearance better.
Take a glance at how you can make yourself look attractive right after giving birth.
You cannot go on a diet immediately after having a baby. You need to give your body time to heal. Plus, if you are feeding your baby, you need your calories. What you can do instead is to turn to clean eating. This involves, cutting out all junk food, soft drinks and artificial juices. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and take your supplements.
Eating clean might not shed your pounds right away, but will certainly make you feel much better about yourself. Also, your skin will stay healthy.
Have a Simple Skin Care Regime
As the pregnancy hormones go down, you no longer have a glowing skin. However, having simple but regular skincare regime will help you maintain the beauty of your skin.
You don’t need to go overboard with your skincare routine as you do not have enough time for yourself with a new baby in your life. Simply do the following:
- Use a face wash that removes impurities.
- Apply a moisturizer with vitamin E to keep your skin well-nourished and supple.
- Use an under-eye soothing cream to help you get rid of eye bags and puffiness that usually occur due to lack of sleep.
Wear Trendy Maternity Clothes
Since you will not immediately lose your pregnancy weight, you can continue to wear your maternity clothes. Opt for comfortable yet trendy dresses so that you can feel as well as look pretty.
Choose colors that compliment you. At this time when you are exhausted, you need the right colors to help you glow.
Sleep deprivation cannot be avoided as your baby wakes you up multiple times during the day. Soon, you are going to develop dark circles around your eyes. A good concealer can come to your rescue. Get the right shade to hide those ugly dark circles and make your eyes appear brighter and fresh.
Go for Subtle Makeup
Some light makeup can enhance your postpartum appearance. Go for makeup that is long lasting and does not require retouching.
Do wear a light blush-on. As your cheeks are brightened up, it removes paleness from your face which often results from weakness after giving birth. Also, wear a light gloss or a lip balm to keep your lips moisturized.
Finish the look with a mascara. Your eyes will be brighter and your overall look will be pleasant and pretty.
Tie your Hair
As you do not have time for elaborate hairstyles, blow drying or curling your hair, simply tie them in an elegant bun. That way, your hair will appear neat and tidy. Your overall look, in turn, will be very presentable.
Through these simple ways, you can look pretty and attractive during this happy yet stressful time of your life.
