|8 Out Of 10 Mums Say|
Having a baby doesnít have to spell the end of your beauty regime.
Whether youíre a brand new mum or taming a toddler it can be hard to find a moment for yourself. But taking time out for a mini pampering session could help you relax, boost your confidence and bring benefits for you and baby.
Me-Time for Mums with Nurture SkincareThe basis for any beauty regime is good skincare and Nurtureís range of products is designed to feed your skin inside and out. Dermatologists and skin health scientists behind Nurture Skincare know the importance of ensuring your skin gets a healthy balance of nutrition and protection.
To begin with, itís all about inner health. The antioxidants and natural plant extracts found in Nurtureís skincare supplement range protect from the inside, while the creams themselves are packed with goodness to hydrate, nourish and moisturise from the outside. However, not all skin is the same Ė some of us have sensitive skin; others have dry or oily skin. Even on our face, we have different skin types, which is why Nurture believes a great skincare regime includes these essential products:
Beauty Must-HavesHormonal changes can cause post-pregnancy skin to lose that dewy glow, while sleep deprivation can leave it looking depleted - so itís important not to neglect it.
Your first step should be to invest in a good quality, soothing cleanser that wonít irritate your complexion. Nurtureís Protecting Soothing Cream Cleanser is ideal and super kind to skin. Itís free from artificial preservatives, colourings and fragrances - perfect if your new mum skin is on the sensitive side.
Wipe away StressItís also worth stocking up on some cleansing wipes for when timeís really tight. Nurtureís 3-in-1-Gentle Cleansing Wipes are multitasking miracle workers that can be used to remove make up (even on the delicate eye area), cleanse and tone.
Next on your agenda should be a rich day cream to help your skin hydrate and add lost nutrients. Nurtureís Replenish Day Cream is bursting with pro-vitamin B5 to keep your skin softer for longer and both UVA and UVB filters to protect your skin against environmental damage that contributes to premature ageing.
Beauty Balm RescueWhile a day cream is essential for your skincare regime, there are times when it might not be enough. Breakouts, stressed skin and dry patches are more likely when youíre tired and run down, and will need a bit more attention. In these skin emergencies a rich beauty balm such as Nurtureís Nourishing Rescue Balm is a must. It contains 100% pure essential oils, plant essences and vitamin E so itís a great boost for fatigued skin and dry patches anywhere on the body. With sweet almond oil and calming lavender you can also dab it on pulse points, as the aroma will soothe you and your baby.
And of course no mum should be without an under eye concealer like Nurtureís Illuminating Touch Treatment to help banish bags after a sleepless night.
