To say that people struggle to look after themselves once they become parents is an understatement. Harry is 17 months as I'm writing this and my very last pampering session was a month before he was born. I'm not the kind of mum who feels guilty doing something for themselves. I am, however, the kind that cannot afford going to a beauty parlour to have her nails done and her feet massaged.
As you may or may not know, Harry didn't used to be a very good sleeper - that is also an understatement - and by the time he went to bed at night, I was a lot more inclined and worried about going to bed early to catch some shut eye until his fist feed, which means applying a facial Mask, moisturize my nails or use my foot spa wasn't even a distant thought...I have to confess that I still haven't got around to use the foot spa I was giving from work when Harry was born, is that bad?
Harry is now a lot more independent and will sleep 12 hours straight every night, plus other 2 to 3 hours during the day - I know, amazing! - still find I don't have that much time for pampering or even the squid to go out and buy my favorite Neal's Yard cream.
With that in mind I recruited the help of my dear friend Seema Amin to give us some beauty tips.
