First, let me tell you if you are a new mother, beauty is going to take a back seat. So accept that you are going to look fatigued, dreary and tired all the time. But then if you have few minutes to get ready and change from your pyjamas to your denims before leaving the house, here are a few essentials that you will need to make you look more humane and sane to hide those dark circles and lighten up that dull face
Moisturiser: Yes this tops the list because pregnancy is going to take a toll on your skin. Irrespective of the climate or the weather it might be dry, itchy or even dull. A moisturiser can save you from these skin woes.
Lip balm: Chapped lips are a common occurrence post delivery so keep a lip balm tucked under your pillow and use it whenever needed, even while breastfeeding your baby. Just don’t forget to put it in your bag before leaving outdoors.
Under eye cream: Sleepless nights, endless hours of comforting baby and diaper changing rewards you with dark circles and under eye creams are just what you would need to tackle those bags and dark circles.
Antiseptic creams: Not exactly a beauty hack but you need them just to address some cuts or bruises if it happens.
Deodorants: You know why you need this right. If you don’t want to use the sprays use the roll-ons as you don’t run the chance of accidentally harming your baby as you spray.
Kajal: This is definitely going to light up your tired, dead eyes and add some spark to it.
Face powder: Since parlour visits are now history so keeping a face powder in your beauty box makes sense. A tint of it on your face and you are ready to take on the world.
Dry shampoo: If shampoo time seems like a luxury this is your best bet.
Sunscreen: Yes, this is a must-have to save you from harsh sunrays. You don’t want to give more trouble to your already tired and dried skin.
