Figuring Out My “Mom” Beauty Routine

If you are a mom then you know that having any kind of beauty routine with a newborn is next to impossible. For the first five weeks of Lincoln’s life I was lucky to change out of my pajamas. Taking a shower was a luxury that didn’t happen every day. After Mike went back to work I told him I needed help with Lincoln to take a shower. He told me I needed to learn to do it myself. At first I thought it was impossible. If I set Lincoln down in his crib or his swing I might get through the shower but he was crying by the time I got out. Then I got smart and learned to bring him in the bathroom with me and set him in his Rock and Play. Being close to me keeps him amused long enough to get through the shower and get dressed. If I’m lucky I might actually get to put on some makeup.

I never realized when I was pregnant how much more complicated it would be to take a shower. I thought it was bad enough that I couldn’t see my feet and I could barely wash them because that was a difficult position to get into. I definitely don’t miss having to navigate around an enormous belly but at least it was only me I had to worry about!

Now my newest challenge will not only be getting a shower and getting dressed but I will have a time limit too in the morning being back to work. It’s not going to be easy but we will make it work. Mike and I are big believers in having a routine and I will just need to figure one out (that won’t make us late to work every day!)

One thing that I will always work into my beauty routine is moisturizing out of the shower. My skin is always super dry and I feel so itchy without slathering my whole body in lotion. Suave Professionals has a new Morrocon Oil lotion that features authentic argan oil from Morocco. It is non greasy with a light scent that saves me the step of having to use a separate body spray or perfume. Mike likes the way it smells too so that is an added bonus.

If I want to add an extra sheen I will use the non greasy body oil spray. It will be perfect to use once I can actually show my legs off again in warmer weather. Spring can get here anytime :)
