EASY WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN POST BABY
1. WASHING YOUR FACE
Oh yes do you get time to do that ? There were some days where I didn’t get time even to wash my face, I am sure there will be moms like me . The first thing in the morning once you wake up is to use a mild face wash.
The dead skin accumulated on the facial skin at night can be removed by this. Wash your neck too.
2. CTM ROUTINE
Ok whats this CTM ? Simple its cleanser , toner and moisturizer. This has to be followed twice in your daily life ; Once in the morning and another before bed time .
Cleansing cleans the skin , toner tightens the skin pores and moisturizer hydrates and makes the skin supple.
There are many brands available in the market , so choose the ones according to your skin type.
If you wish to go for natural ways ,
Cleanser – Take 2 tbsp. milk in a bowl preferably raw milk . Dip a cotton ball and wipe gently on your face and neck in the upward direction. This helps to ensure the skin is free of dirt , grease and germs.
Toner – Take a green tea bag and steep it in a cup of boiled water . Dip cotton ball in this and wipe your face and neck. This helps to tighten the pores. Rose water , aloevera , coconut water, tomato juice all are good toners.
