So I'm just over a week PP and I thought I'd share some tips I have discovered for beauty during this period.
1. Invest in a good body oil. I have jojoba and sweet almond. They feel great on, require less to moisturize and have all kinds of lovely healing properties. Perfect for postpartum skin, especially if you are worried about stretch marks.
2. Master the art of 5 minute makeup. I know it's not on everyone's list to get makeup done when you are running on a 3 hour sleep schedule, taking care of a newborn and possibly other children....but you can find five minutes. Those five minutes can make you feel like a million bucks!
3. Drink a stupid amount of water. I have to do this anyway because if I don't I can't nurse effectively, but i have found all that extra water has really gave my skin a glow, and overall I feel very refreshed from the extra fluids.
4. Get some spanx or control top panties! I am loving them right now. I have heard that they can help the progress of getting your skin and muscles back into shape and even if this is not true, who doesn't love feeling like they lost 5 more pounds of belly flab in 5 seconds!
here is a pic of me and my lovely new baby boy!
