Once you become a mother, it seems like sweatpants and a messy bun become part of the uniform. Moms often find themselves in front of the mirror and wonder what happened to the gorgeous young woman they once were. Don’t fret! It happens to everyone. If you ever start to feel frumpy, it’s time to practice a little self-care and learn a few new ways to feel better in your own skin. Here are some simple mom makeover tips you can use to feel confident and young again.
Your skin is your largest organ and it’s one of the most noticeable. Moisturizing your skin will keep you looking radiant even when you don’t have time to put on makeup. Plus, it keeps you looking younger for longer. Rather than putting on makeup every day, take the time to use a good moisturizer at night and in the morning. And since you’re putting sunscreen on your kids, be sure to apply some yourself and protect your face from wrinkles and dark spots.
Fast Makeup Solutions
Busy moms definitely don’t do their makeup every day. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look glamorous. Using semi-permanent cosmetic tricks, you can keep your face looking ready even when you don’t have time for mascara. If you’ve ever wondered about microblading your brows or laser hair removal, check out local clinics for discounts. While it does take some time investment for the initial treatments, most processes last for at least a year, making them well worth the time. And this way you won’t have to waste time in front of the mirror in the morning.
After delivering child, your body will never be the same. But in many cases, your body will become stronger and healthier than before you had a child. Take time for yourself to exercise. Kids are extremely active, so take the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone by playing tag or active games with your children at the park. You can also go on bike rides together or take the dog for a run together. That probably won’t be enough in the long run. Talk to your partner about taking over responsibility for the kids an hour or two a couple of days a week so you can get to the gym or spend an hour running outdoors.
New Haircut or Fashion
A little change helps every woman. Take the time to go to the salon and get a new haircut or a new hair color. The new look will encourage a new you. You can also try out a trendy new fashion piece or get yourself a few new accessories. Give yourself a little present and try something new!
Being a mom is a big job, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect your own health and beauty. Take some time for yourself. You deserve it!
