Easy Beauty Tricks for New Moms

With sleepless nights and 3 am feedings, being a new mom leaves little time for a lengthy beauty routine. Gone are the days of curling irons and long, luxurious showers, but there are some super-helpful essential tips that can simplify and solidify your new mom routine:

1. Use an exfoliating face wash to brighten up your skin

Basq’s Fresh Face Kit, which includes their rebalancing face cleanser, facial brush and cucumber tea eye gel, gently removes dead dry surface skin to reveal a brighter, more balanced complexion. Their cucumber tea eye gel zaps puffiness under eyes and refreshes and cools the skin.

2. Multi-tasking makeup

Who wants to deal with the hassle of a multi-step routine? Concealer? Foundation? Powder? Forget it! Try an all-in-one BB cream and make it a one-stop shop for your face. Gently blend the BB cream around your face and you will be glowing in no time flat.

3. Mascara, mascara, mascara

If there is any beauty product that will awaken tired eyes, it’s mascara! Choose a lengthening formula that helps to extend those lashes! Another trick is colored mascara in shades like navy and deep purple. These subtle tones help to bring out the whites of your eyes and make them appear brighter overall.

4. Hydrate!

Drinking plenty of water is not only good for your health, but also for your skin! Hydration helps to restore dull, dry skin and helps to lessen the appearance of fine lines. Drink up for a fresher appearance.

Step 1: Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

In facial care, anti-aging begins with exfoliation but this is also true for pregnancy body care as well. Exfoliation preps the skin for better product absorption and more importantly, kick-starts your skin’s natural repair process that tends to slow down after the age of thirty.

To make sure you are smoothing skin and not damaging it; avoid salt scrubs—they are drying and can cause more damage. Additionally, loofahs and shower mitts can be too rough and lead to micro tears which harm the skin. Many everyday scrubs have clary sage, rosemary and caffeine – these also should be avoided during pregnancy.

We created Basq Citrus Sugar Body Polish for pregnancy-safe exfoliation. The natural sugars gently smooth while rich oils and butters nourish the skin. Focus on mark zones— chest, belly, thighs and hips—for best results.

Stay tuned for Step 2 and more helpful tips from Basq Skincare.
