8 Post Pregnancy Skin Care Tips



8 Post Pregnancy Skin Care Tips

How proud we are about our flawless skin? We take pains doing the whole toning, cleansing, moisturising routine to look our best and glowing. We take pride in maintaining a flawless complexion but our pregnancy hormones create havoc and change all of that.After pregnancy, everything changes, even seemingly little things like your hair and skin. Most changes that affect your skin and hair aren’t long-term and will resolve on their own, so don’t take them too seriously. The changes that do remain are often easily dealt with by using topical ointments or medication or by undergoing minor surgical procedures. Your baby will be worth the small annoyances; in fact, you might be too busy with him to fret about these changes before they disappear.

Try and incorporate a daily routine to take care of your skin. If you follow it religiously, chances are that your skin will get back to normal in no time.

Cleansing

Since you will be pre-occupied with your baby, it is possible that you will rush in and out of your bath daily. Agreed the long luxurious baths seem a far fetched possibility yet give your face a minute or two dedicated time. Wash your face atleast twice a day with a mild cleanser and pat dry.

Moisturising

Moisturising keeps the skin soft and smooth. Apply gently in circular movements after each wash. Opt for a mild lotion in order to avoid excess oils left on the skin.

Water Intake

Drink at least eight glasses of water a day. This will help support liver function, as well, helping to stabilize your hormones. It also keeps the skin glowing and refreshed for a longer time.

Eat Your Greens

Eat dark green, leafy vegetables such as broccoli, arugula, kale and spinach. These types of vegetables are full of the vitamins and minerals your skin requires to stay healthy.

Sun Block

A lot of women tend to ignore using sun screen thinking that they are mostly at home and when they step out it is usually for a short span and the Sun can’t harm them. Applying sun block is as essential and basic as any other regime that you plan to follow.

Adequate Sleep

Sounds hard to follow especially as you are occupied with a toddler 24/7, however getting adequate rest is directly related to your skin’s health. Less sleep leaves you feeling dull and drained out and it shows on your face. A minimum of 7-8 hours sleep is a must to keep your skin feeling healthy.

Daily Dose Of Multi-Vitamins

You need all the energy you can gather to handle a busy and hectic routine. A daily intake of your multivitamin keeps you going through the day and charges you to be active and productive without feeling fatigued and tired.

Hobby Time

Take out time for yourself, even if a little. Doing something which makes you happy helps keep your overall spirits happy and cheerful will ensure that your skin and body is also healthy and invigorated.
