Carrying pregnancy for nine months is no small business. It takes its toll on the mother, and most of the time, many women complain that their skin colour is never the same after delivery.
Many women use many products without results; some visit a lot of specialists and spend a lot of money just to get what they want, while some damage their skin in the process of trying to get it back. Hilariously some women say they have passed on their skin colour and beauty to their children leaving them looking far less than themselves. Here are some of the best ways to get your beautiful skin back after delivery.
The first and most vital tip to getting your skin colour back is to avoid panicking. When we panic, we tend to make bad decisions, some of which we cannot reverse. So, when it comes to post-delivery skincare, you need to avoid the usual panic of when will I get my skin back to normal? Just relax, and relish the moment of safe delivery and a healthy child because this is something most women do not experience.
Drink lots and lots of water
When you were pregnant, your body concentrated more on your baby than you, and this is one reason for most of the changes you experienced. This means you have to give life to your body by drinking lots and lots of water. When you hydrate, you give your body the new life required to help you look as good as you were before the pregnancy. Water is life, and it can help your skin start to glow.
Invest in good skincare products
The golden rule of skincare is cleansing, toning and moisturising. This means you need to get good products from each of these categories – preferably from the same product line. Ensure that your moisturiser fits your skin type and ensure you are consistent with the use. Also, apply sunscreen when heading out to prevent further damage to your skin from exposure to direct sunlight. With consistent use of good skincare products, you will begin to see results.
You cannot keep on eating what you want and expect that your skin will get back to normal. You need to avoid junk food, eat good food, and, most of all, avoid starving yourself. Invest in vegetables, fruits, nuts and foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Exercising after delivering a baby can be difficult, but it is not impossible. Weight gain causes your skin to add pigment, which means that losing weight helps you look better. But I’m breastfeeding and taking care of my baby, and exercising might not be the best option, you might say. However, exercising is possible if you are willing to. All you need to do is speak with your doctor or check out simple and easy post-pregnancy workout routines you can start even while breastfeeding.
The final piece of the puzzle for getting your skin back is supplementation. Vitamin C and calcium supplements help the skin to recover and revitalise the skin. This is one thing that can help you get your shine.
Getting healthy skin after delivering your baby is possible with some simple steps. It might seem less complicated, but it’s the little things that count. Use these tips to your advantage and get yourself looking fresh and even better than you looked before conception.
