It is so important during pregnancy and beyond to take care of your skin and your body, and so we’ve put together a list of seven great beauty products that do just that! Being a new mom in no way means you need to sacrifice your beauty routine — you just need to maybe tweak it a little bit. These new mom beauty products are all easy and fantastic to use when you’re lacking in time and patience!
This stuff is incredible. It’s pretty much a super product, as it does literally everything. All throughout my pregnancy, I have lathered up each night with it, as it works great as a moisturizer. I’ve noticed my skin is softer and more supple than ever, and I am hooked! I also use it as a hair mask about once a week in the shower for super soft and shiny locks. I cook with it, bake with it, and use it as a face moisturizer. Coconut oil: It can do no wrong and is a new mom’s dream product. The best part is that it’s all natural, which is the most important thing to me with things I’m putting on and in my body!
I swear by this stuff. Dry shampoo is a godsend for hair that could have used a washing the night before, but that you simply didn’t have time to get around to. It’s okay, just spritz some dry shampoo on your scalp, let sit for a minute or two and scrunch in with your fingers. Voila! Instant volume, lift, and your hair actually looks like you put some effort into it. We won’t tell your secret. Try this dry shampoo by Dove.
BB Cream is amazing. It’s a bit lighter than a foundation, but still works to cover flaws and make your face look fresh and beautiful! It’s like the most amazing tinted moisturizer you will ever use on your skin. Which is great for new moms, since it skips a step in your makeup routine, which is really what new moms are all about, am I right? BB Creams also have added benefits of vitamins, antioxidants, anti-aging, and SPF. Are you sold yet? We love this one by Garnier and this one by Clinique for slightly more coverage.
Teeth Whitening Strips
New moms don’t have much time for primping and pampering, what with putting this new little one’s needs before their own and all. This is where white strips come to the rescue! They are a quick, easy and no-hassle way to brighten up your look and make sure you have some pretty pearly whites, even if you barely had time to brush your hair today, let alone your teeth! Crest white strips are my favorite beauty secret to instantly freshen up your look. If you find the regular ones to be too harsh, try the sensitive strips!
Nine Naturals body care and haircare
We love this line of organic, all natural beauty products for pregnancy and beyond! Nine Naturals has a whole line of products including shampoo, conditioner, belly butter, and lotion, that are all sensitive and great for your skin. What’s more is they all have natural fragrances that aren’t overpowering, so they won’t upset baby or your own sensitive nose if you’re pregnant. The belly butter is great as a stretch mark cream during pregnancy!
Makeup Remover Wipes
These makeup remover wipes are amazing. A one step makeup removing system and face wash in one, essentially. Perfect for the new mom who simply doesn’t have time to go through her arsenal of face washes/ scrubs/ exfoliators/ makeup remover like she once did. And that’s okay. These bad boys take care of all of that for you. We love these wipes by Neutrogena.
There is nothing like a swipe of mascara to waken up your look, especially since you’re probably running on just a few hours of sleep these days. You may not have time for eyeliner and eyeshadow and even eyebrows, but girl, you definitely have time for the mascara. Try Lancôme Hypnôse for beautifully dramatic lashes that pop.
