Pampering for new mums
Being a new mum can be exhausting, so it's important to take time to relax when you can. Enjoying some 'me time' needn't cost the earth – and you don't even have to leave the house
Top tips for new mums
Our quick tips will help you look after yourself, even while you're looking after baby.
Soothe your skin
Choose a face mask or moisturising lotion to help improve the condition of your skin. If you have developed stretch marks, look for a specially-designed stretch mark oil to help leave your skin softer and more supple.
Maintain your immune system
Lack of sleep can leave you feeling tired and depleted. Eat a varied diet and consider taking a multivitamin supplement with vitamin C to help support your immune system.
Treat your feet
Give your toes a little attention with some hand and foot cream, a nail file, buffer and your favourite polish. Who said you need to go to an expensive day spa to feel good?
Sleep when your baby sleeps, if you can. If you really need a night off, ask your partner to look after the baby and express some milk if you're breastfeeding. Spray your pillow with a natural lavender scent and try to catch up on some shut-eye.
