Quick And Easy Beauty Tips For New Mothers

Entering motherhood marks a significant milestone in a woman’s life—a period of enrichment filled with endless kisses, gurgles, and the profound bonding between mother and baby during feeding sessions. Transitioning into this new role flooded me with a multitude of emotions, now that my baby has reached the age of 1 year. Yet, not a day passes without ample kisses or cuddling sessions before bedtime. It seems that upon becoming a mother, a cascade of maternal hormones triggers a complex reaction in the brain, leading to heightened mental activity and physical vigor. However, this journey often leads to a state of overwhelming exhaustion. I found myself immersed in this experience and more, prioritizing my baby’s well-being over personal appearance, with beauty advice for new mothers being entirely foreign to me.

Until last month, my hair was constantly flowing freely, my skin appeared dull and lacking vitality. I found myself unable to spare any time to groom myself, not even for a simple day at home, let alone for visits to my parents where I could have dressed up or added a touch of brightness with lipstick or nail polish. There were occasions when I had to decline invitations for lunch or coffee out of frustration, solely because I couldn’t find the time for basic grooming like threading.

Quick and easy beauty tips for new mother:

However, last month, I realized that if I don’t take care of myself, then I shall continue to have mood swings, feel cranky, and pity myself for no reason. It is not necessary to visit a beauty parlor for some basic beauty needs. Here are a few do-it-yourself (DIY) tips and tricks (using home ingredients) that are for all you time-deprived-new mothers. They are not even time consuming, so check them out, and am sure you will thank me for these quick, easy, and effective beauty tips for new mothers:


1. Protect your hair from harsh chemicals and keep them soft

Before shampooing your hair, apply a bit of eggless mayonnaise on the bottom half. This way, you are shielding your pretty tresses from harsh soapy chemicals and this also ensures retention of moisture. Besides, mayo also adds shine!beauty tips for new mothers 01


1. Say goodbye to post-partum acne

Apply honey as a face mask. But be sure that the honey is of good quality. I would not push you to source raw one (although, that is the purest, unprocessed form with maximum anti-bacterial properties). Apply a thin coat about 10 minutes before going for a shower. Yes, of course, you can do other things while the mask is on! Just when you are getting into the shower, first clean your face with lukewarm water. However, there is a piece of advice: do a patch test. Honey doesn’t suit all skin types.beauty tips for new mothers 02

2. Facial hair can be easily removed

Use tweezer with sharp edges to pluck unwanted facial hair. You can also opt for cold wax strips. To tame your unruly eyebrows, apply a coating of Vaseline. Voila! Now you are ready for a lunch date with your girls!Beauty tips for new mothers 03

3. Quick exfoliation

Oranges are not just good for the body but even for your skin. All the vitamin C in them can give such an awesome glow! Apply a bit of orange juice on the elbows and knees to keep roughness at bay. Also, a bit of cucumber juice when applied on the face (leave it on for 20 minutes, thereafter, wash your face with water) can have such gorgeous results. Add a few drops of rose water for a long-lasting radiance.beauty tips for new mothers 04

4. For extra soft skin

Dab a bit of serum in your foundation before applying makeup on your face. This will give an extra punch of glow.

5. Moisturize

Ladies, never underestimate the act of moisturizing! A good moisturizer helps retain moisture and prevents dryness.

Haven’t got any time to step out looking for a new shade of lipstick? Here is a superb idea on how to make use of the lip colors already available to you. Apply one shade over the other. The merged colors will create a new shade leaving you surprised and gorgeous at the same time.

3. For that perfect pout

Add a drop of peppermint oil to your lip gloss. It will prickle a bit but will help in achieving a plumped-up pout 😉

Hands and feet:

1. Nail care

Soak nails in warm olive oil for 10 minutes for moisturized nails.
