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.
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.
