Post-Natal Skin Problems

skincare pregnancyOnce the baby has been born, the early weeks can be a shock to the system on every level. The priority for most new mothers is to establish breastfeeding (if they choose to) and a good routine involving enough sleep for baby and Mum!

However, there comes a point where things start to get a little easier and that’s when women tend to start thinking about regaining their pre-pregnancy looks and addressing any issues that pregnancy, childbirth and lack of sleep have left behind.

Start easy, by having a haircut or treating yourself to a DIY facial at home.

When you’re ready, there are a host of professional aesthetic treatments which can help to tackle common skin issues after pregnancy or childbirth.
