5 Beauty Secrets All New Moms Should Know

New moms may find adjusting to their new lives as parents difficult. Motherhood means your day consists of feeding your baby, changing diapers, and bursts of sleep. You may not have time for a beauty routine with all your new responsibilities.. 

But motherhood should not stop you from taking care of yourself. Although you do not have as much free time as before, you can try these new mom beauty secrets that you can add to your multi-tasking routine.

1. Drink Lots of Water

Drinking water is essential to your body’s functions. Coffee might be tempting to jump-start your brain, but the drink may increase your blood pressure

So, while you may crave coffee in the mornings, try starting the day with a glass of water instead. You can drink water while doing your hair or makeup, during breakfast, or feeding your kid. The drink can help you wake up quickly and get right into your day.

2. Use Dry Shampoo

As a new mom, you may be so frazzled with your new responsibilities you won’t even have the time for a quick shower in the mornings. Fortunately, you can use dry shampoo to make your hair look fresher and less oily.

With dry shampoo, you do not have to go out in public with oily hair. It also saves you the time it takes to rush into the shower and rinse the bubbles out of your hair. You can focus more on your child with more time on your hands.

A spray of dry shampoo can soak up the excess oil on your hair and leave it smelling fresh.

3. Try Hydrating Serums

If you are blessed with a newborn, who likes to eat, poop, and sleep on their schedule, you need something to keep your face hydrated. 

Try adding hydrating facial serums to your list of skincare products. The product smells good, hydrates, and moisturizes your skin. It also firms your skin, which can help give you a youthful glow and counter the effects of aging.

You can use the serum in the mornings or before going to bed. It is also perfect for busy moms since it is easy to apply.

4. Keep Your Lip Balm Close

You may not have the time to put on makeup now that you have a baby taking up all your time. But you can always take small steps back into your makeup routine.

You can start by always having a lip balm close. Because you do not have the time to use lip liners, tints, and lipsticks, you can use a tinted lip balm instead. The product serves as a moisturizer for your lips while giving a little bit of life back to your tired face. 

Because a lip balm is small and takes up minimal space, you can keep them all over the house. You can even stash one in the diaper bag and your car. Doing so will let you take care of your lips and prevent them from being chapped and colourless.

5. Do Not Forget To Use Mascara

If you are a new mom, you may feel like you haven’t slept in ages. You can use mascara to hide your sleepy eyes. 

Although you may not have the time to do a detailed smokey eye look, you can still take a minute to apply some mascara to your lashes. With mascara, you only need a couple of minutes to make your eyes pop and improve your look.

How to Make Time for Self-Care for New Moms

As a new parent, you have the responsibility to put your child’s requirements ahead of your own. However, you shouldn’t feel guilty or embarrassed if you need to ask for assistance to take a break.

If things, as well as people, are not given the opportunity for routine maintenance and rest, they will eventually break down. Consider that practicing self-care is analogous to recharging a battery in that you need to connect to a source of energy before you completely run out of juice.

Your ability to concentrate may suffer, you may become irritable and depressed, and your immune system may become compromised if you allow high levels of stress to continue unchecked.

Caring for Your Body

1. Healthy Eating

Eat a lot of vegetables, whole grains, and proteins that are low in fat. Even if you are short on time, you should still plan out when you will eat and what you will eat (even if you won’t be the one to prepare the food). If you wait too long, you run the risk of becoming hungry while having no healthy options available to you.

2. Exercise

Our bodies were made to move, and research has shown that exercise is effective at lowering stress levels. Walking, hiking, or biking are all examples of activities that can count toward your weekly goal of 150 minutes of moderate exercise. Along with stretching every day, it is recommended that you perform strength training twice per week. Any amount of time, even something as short as a 10-minute walk, can be beneficial.

3. Good Sleep

Even though it may be challenging when pregnant or caring for young children, you should make it a goal to get seven to eight hours of sleep each night. Many parents stay up late so that they can have a few hours to themselves in the evening, but this comes at a cost because it makes it more likely that they will be irritable and tired during the day. You should try to create a relaxing routine for yourself before bedtime, and you should turn off all screens at least an hour before going to bed.

Caring for Mind and Spirit

1. Set Realistic Goals

Putting too much on one’s plate is a surefire way to invite trouble. Look over your list of things to do and be honest with yourself as you do so. Are there any tasks that you could delegate or simplify? Both the laundry and the groceries can be delivered to your door, and there is no need to fold the clothes. Keep in mind that it’s perfectly acceptable to decline some opportunities to accept others.

2. Relieve Stress in the Moment

When you start to feel stressed out, stop and take a few deep breaths. The body is unable to react negatively to stress when the person practices deep breathing. You might find that going for a brief walk helps you think more clearly. Both drinking to excess and engaging in risky behaviors while under the influence of alcohol have the potential to backfire and make you feel even worse.

3. Have a Daily Practice

Find a method that is effective in relieving stress for you, such as yoga, meditation, deep breathing, or prayer, and commit a short amount of time each day to practicing that method. This will make it easier for you to reset yourself when you’re rattled and help you create a buffer against the daily annoyances that you’re bound to encounter. Try using apps and taking classes online if you are unable to attend a meeting or class in person.

4. Keep up Connections

When things get hectic in life, it’s easy to feel as though “friend time” is a luxury. Keeping in touch with friends, on the other hand, can not only make you happier and healthier, but it can also help you live longer. Don’t overlook the importance of date night or other activities that can help strengthen your connection with your partner.

5. Seek Out Support

You are not capable of doing everything, nor should you be expected to. Discuss with your significant other ways to more evenly divide the responsibilities of caring for children and maintaining the household. If paying for a babysitter is not an option, you can ask a relative for help or organize a babysitting cooperative with some of your friends.

6. Make Time for What You Love

Have fun listening to music! Listen to music as you go about your daily activities. Do you enjoy painting? Start something, even if it’s just a little thing. Like knitting or sewing? Participate in a community activity that involves crafting. Because it is an appointment with yourself, scheduling time in your calendar for your hobby can be of great assistance.
