It’s safe to say ‘looking after ourselves’ kinda gets put on the back burner where we become parents. (And if it doesn’t please tell me how the hell you keep up with it?!)
I’m lucky if I manage a 30 second shower each day, let alone my skincare routine, even though I do try to use organic and natural products when it comes to shaving creams and other skin care remedies. I hardly put make up on anymore and my hair is constantly in a mum bun.
Even a trip to the doctors is tricky. General check ups are out of the question without childcare. If it’s something more serious that can’t wait, like an ear infection, places like Auris Ear Care are a good place to look if I need a check up.
Surely there are ways we can keep on top of health and beauty, as well as change nappies, wipe noses and do the school run? Even if you’re a professional beautician you may need to take time to update your make up or toiletry bag, https://www.ellisons.co.uk
I’ve asked my fellow parent bloggers for their top tips for keeping on top of health and beauty routines and generally looking after yourself. Because if we don’t, then we’ll burn out, and just not go out because we look like crap. 😉
