5 Ways To Take Care Of Yourself After Birth


Gone are days of being able to have a nice hot relaxing bath and pampering evenings you are now most likely covered in baby sick and can't remember the last time you painted your nails or had a face mask. Rest assure there are still ways that you can get your body back in tip top condition and get out of that mummy rut!

1. Hair removal - Many new mums don't have time to shave their legs and opt for laser hair removal. This is a simple and effective way of permanent hair removal and will save you a lot of time in the long run. Why not treat yourself to laser hair treatment which can be used on any part of the body including the most common problem areas: face, bikini area, legs and underarms.

2. You probably won't have time to go to the hair dressers for a full head colour unless you have a well behaved baby who will sleep for hours at a time. If like me and your baby doesn't sleep why not bring the hair dressers to you! You could either ask a friend to come over and help dye your hair or even hire a hair dresser to come over and do it for you. This is especially good if you are breastfeeding as you are in the comfort of your own home. 

3. Sleep - Its important your body gets the rest it needs, and that means getting some down time. If your baby is now sleeping through the night make sure you take advantage of all that heavenly slumber time by going to bed as early as possible. Which means don't stay up all hours just because you can. If your baby is still young try and catch some shut eye while they nap. You can nap when your baby naps even if it is just for 20 minutes. Lack of sleep can effect your immune system, concentration, memory and mood as well as making you feel lousy. 

4. Treat yourself to some new clothes! You most probably haven't bought yourself any new clothes since you were pregnant it's time to treat yourself to some new clothes which actually fit. Go on, go out and hit the shops. I know you'd much rather spend it on the little one but it's okay to treat yourself every now and again. You deserve it!

5. Get a manicure, pedicure, or both: This could either be at a local salon or if you have a friend who is a nail technician even better! Put your feet up and relax. Having freshly painted nails can make a world of difference and make you feel much more glammed up even if you are in your pj's all day!

How do you like to treat yourself as a mum?

  1. Thank you for the post will follow your advice in future) as for laser hair removal i think it works but not on every woman, i have tried and just wasted time and money. Also spoke about this with my beautician and she confirmed that it didn't work for her as well. Did it work for you?

  2. It's SO true that you should go to sleep early once your baby starts sleeping through... but why since having children I only go to bed later than before just to get up earlier than before?? The me time after they go to bed is just too tempting! :-)

    I think every woman should for hair removal treatment. If you are one of the thousand of individuals who has to wake up early to complete your hair removing routine each day, you know how time-consuming it is. Sometimes, you will cut your face with the blade while shaving. Laser hair removal clinics that provide the best services are just within your reach to solve your problem. I find about laser hair removal facts some information You can take a look at: laser hair removal
