How to give your new-mum skin a glow

How to give your new-mum skin a glow

Having a baby can be hard work on your skin. But with our handy guide, you can keep your skin looking its best

Changing hormones, sleepless nights, little time to look after your skin and the drying effects of breastfeeding can all zap your glow. Here’s how to look radiant with a few easy tweaks, tips and tricks.

Boost blood flow
Massage your cleanser in for one minute more than usual (even a few seconds more will boost benefits) to get blood pumping and oxygenating your skin.

Cleanse away dullness daily
Using a warm muslin to remove your cleanser will gently shift dead skin and deeply cleanse and boost circulation, resulting in healthier-looking skin.

Exfoliate regularly
Once dead skin cells are buffed away, light can bounce off your skin more easily. Keep a face scrub in the shower and use at the same time as your cleanser for time-savvy results.

Add a facial oil at night
Just one or two drops of oil alone or mixed into your night cream will transform dry, dull skin.

Spritz on a skin drink
If your skin starts to look dehydrated during the day, mist with a hydrating facial spritz to up your skin’s water levels and leave it plump and glowing.

Boost moisture while you sleep
Forget waiting 20 minutes for your face mask to work. Pop on a moisturising one before bed and let it sink in, working its glow-giving magic overnight.

Fake luminosity
Nothing injects life into your skin faster than highlighter. Blend a liquid, cream or powder formula onto cheekbones, Cupid’s bow and brow bone for a lit-from-within effect. If you’re in a real hurry, mix into your foundation for an all-over skin pick-me-up.

Bronze and glow
Dust bronzer shot through with tiny shimmer particles over your face, neck and collarbone to create a healthy, sun-kissed glow.

Add a pop of cheek colour
Dab and blend cream blusher on the highest point of your cheeks to give a hint of dewy, healthy colour.
