I’m not sure if its the lighter, brighter days or just the fact that I’ve left the ‘newborn’ stages of mama-hood long behind me….. Now I’m ready to go back to being ‘Me’, or a variation of it at least.
Wow! I’d packed 2 pregnancies in 4 years, a big chunk of life where any decent skincare and fitness regimes pretty much went out the window- my bathroom ended up strewn with very random face/body products and fast fixes.
We all know that pregnancy and in fact motherhood has a major impact on your skin, health and fitness! I just couldn’t recognise myself anymore…. silver roots, dark circles, large pores, tired puffy skin, aching muscles/joints…..something had to be done and it all started with a concealer!

My sister recommended an under-eye concealer by Revlon (photoready)- I’d never used an under-eye concealer before so I was pleasantly surprised by the difference it made; I didn’t look as tired (or as old) anymore, so then it began….
I went shopping, replaced old makeup and skincare and put in place a pretty good routine. I could now afford 10mins in the bathroom to cleanse/tone/moisturise, as opposed to the earlier 2min brushing of teeth and quick splash of water on face.
I’ve now begun to notice skincare and makeup videos online which I’d never done before, and have come across some inspirational articles and blog posts on self-care and creating the perfect space for you to do all your beautifying- ‘cos that’s important too you know!
