Like I mentioned in my last post, having time for yourself is imperative, especially for your health. And, as a mom of a speedy robotic toddler, you'll just forget yourself and not take good care of your body. Eating the right foods and taking the right supplements is extremely conducive, and I had to learn that the hard way. I still breastfeed Sage and it literally sucks the life out of me when I do not eat the necessary foods, and a certain amount of food a day. I thought food would just help, but it didn't, I was still drained, I would sleep 9 hours and still feel sleepy by mid day. I noticed my skin looked dull, by hair was dry, bangs under my eye, I mean I was the walking dead. So there was a few things I started taking and doing to brighten up confidence and appearance.
In terms of eating, it is pretty self explanatory that healthier foods is better for your body inside and out. It also helps with energy. I would stay away from heavy greasy foods because it tends to weigh you down. I stick to healthy but flavorful. Regarding skin, I exfoliate my face at least twice a day, if not three times on a summer day. I can't stand when my face feels dirty and oily, so I exfoliate with Up & Up towelettes from Target. There are different kinds but this one seems to work for my skin. You have to find what works for your skin. If you need it to be medicated or not. After, I moisturize with Hyaluronic serum alone, or with vitamin E for extremely dry skin. Now I started taking vitamins because even with all that, I still needed a push. So I am trying Sundown Natural's Women's Multivitamin with biotin now, I am unsure of the results yet, however I do have more energy through out the day.
I am still adjusting. I had so much time before to capture beautiful moments. Now, if I see it, I have to figure out if Sage is going to cooperate with mommy or just down right not having it. So, I'd attempt to take some shots, and somehow, she'll put her face or toy props to leave her mark, as you can see enclosed lol.
