My sister-in-law Abby gave birth to my nephew Jayce a week ago, and let me tell you – she looks great! Way better than I remember looking – and feeling – after giving birth, myself. It took quite awhile after Bubbles was born until I felt like wearing anything other than yoga pants and a t-shirt.
Giving yourself a little TLC is important, though, and getting out of those yoga pants can go a long way towards making you feel better, too. So here are a few tips to help you look and feel glam after giving birth.
Buy yourself a new outfit – Your baby likely has a “Coming Home” outfit, why not you, too? It will take you a little time to get that pre-baby body back, so buy something flattering but still comfortable. A little confidence boost will go a long way.
A new makeup routine – Your days of 60 unfettered minutes in front of the bathroom each morning are no more. Instead of feeling frustrated with a half-done look or crooked eyeliner, select some versatile products (lip and cheek duos, for example) and streamline your routine. A little mascara and some lip gloss might be all you have time for, but still can provide you with a polished look.
Healthy snacks – Right after baby is born is not the time to start a diet (especially if you’re breastfeeding). But choosing healthy snacks (instead of all the mac & cheese I ate while pregnant) can make you feel better inside and out. Plenty of water and healthy snacks are great for your skin and hair, too (a nice replacement for the prenatal vitamins you’re probably not taking any more).
