Mommy Self-Care

Make yourself a priority every once and a while.. It’s not selfish, its necessary.

Homemade Calming Mask- A Mommy-do fav

A calming and hydrating mask is easy to do and perfect for the summer heat. Cucumber is known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory benefits. It will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated while greek yogurt is perfect for a gentle exfoliation. The combination of the two will leave you feeling refreshed in a quick 10 minutes. Add honey for an extra umph in your moisture levels.

Wash your face and leave your skin damp. Rub a generous amount of the yogurt mask onto your face and neck and allow the mask to dry completely (about 10 minutes). To remove, rinse skin with a warm water and gently buff with a soft cloth. Follow treatment with your moisturizer of choice.

  • 2 tablespoons pureed or shredded cucumber
  • 3 tablespoons greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Slice cucumbers and place them on your eyes if you choose to do so. Lay down, relax and enjoy your well deserved “me-time” mommy!

The feeling when your baby touches your chest for the first time and cuddles with you is indescribable. It’s the moment I immediately felt like a mama lion ready to protect, love and push to do my best for this sweet baby. The skin to skin on my chest continued for months at home. We had a no shirt type of thing going on for a while where we would trade off snuggling for hours at a time.  It was natural and I soon learned all the benefits of what we were doing through our pediatrician. She started to talk to my husband and I about things we never knew about… development milestones.
