Fun fact: when you have a baby, not only will they steal your heart but they’ll steal your luminosity, too.
And the more babies you have, the more luminosity you lose. It’s the truth.
Unless you’re Miranda Kerr. Anyway.
I have three kids, so you can only imagine how MIA my skin radiance is these days. (Plus, I swear extra lines form around my eyes any time one of my children chucks a tantrum over the size of their spoon.)
But parenthood is great – highly recommend. Although I do also recommend carving out a little time for your new mum skincare routine.
You see, when you’re a time-starved parent, making time for yourself is critical.
Yes, I'm a dermal therapist, but I just feel better about myself on the days I’ve had time to do my skincare routine. New mum skin care can also be quite meditative, if you let it be.
Taking two minutes for myself in the morning kind of makes me feel like a person who has their life together – when really, I don’t. (FYI I'm wearing makeup below, this is me on one of my best mum days.)
