Add Self-Care To Your Daily Routine

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Caring for others is part of a magical handbook of being a parent, but what we fail to remember is that caring for yourself is just as important.

My life changed once I found out I was going to be a mom, and so did my priorities. Finding out that I was carrying a child meant I needed to take care of my body, and that’s what I did the first time around.

After our second child was born, things began to go downhill. I’m still fighting to get rid of the added weight and clear up my skin.

Post-Pregnancy Blues
You could throw on a bigger t-shirt to cover the weight gain, and even wear a hat to hide the hair loss, but it will do just that — cover it up.

No one understands your body better than yourself, and caring for it should be top of mind. This is why I’ve been proactively gulping down bottles of water and doing my best to eat three meals a day, along with snacking with the kids.

Hair loss, weight gain, and even acne have all been linked to post-partum symptoms. I should know, it happened to me after each pregnancy. Everything you put into your mouth has an effect on your body, so it’s important to care for yourself to be able to care for someone else.

One of the best ways to help balance your eating habits is to add a supplement, like the Glow by Nature Made® Skin Moisture. Adding this supplement to your daily routine can help improve skin hydration within two weeks of use.† Products like this which contain biotin may help support healthy hair, skin, and nails.†

*For adults with dry skin. ¥ 70 mg of Ceramosides®    ‡Biotin may help support healthy hair, skin and nails in those that are biotin deficient.†

    My nails can sure use this supplement. I want stronger nails.

      Same. That’s been my goal since I had our boys. This product seems to be doing the trick.

    My skin gets DRY – especially in the winter time. I could really use something like this.

      I know the feeling. My skin is very sensitive, and lacks moisture throughout the cooler months. After using Glow by Nature Made, I’ve been able to regain the moisture.

    Think my most important daily self-care is a long walk to get away from my computer & relax or re-prioritize what’s on my to do list.

      That’s a great way to add a little time for your self. Walking is always good exercise! 🙂

    My skin could certainly use all the help it can get. This looks like something I need.

    Self care is one thing that we often forget, but it’s really important that we incorporate it in our routine. Taking care of ourselves makes us feel better throughout the day.

    1. Fatima Torres

      Yes! I’m the same way. I think once we add a little me time, it really helps you get through the day.

    This is a good reminder for all of us. We focus so much on the things that we need to do everyday that we neglect taking care of ourselves. It’s what keeps us together and it’s also what helps us feel confident.

      April 27, 2017 at 9:14 AM

      Exactly! That’s why I’ve been doing my best to focus on myself from time to time. Health is wealth, but so is LIVING!

    I had no idea that they made this! I am definitely going to check my store for this!

      Same! I was excited when I heard about the product. Goodbye, dry skin during the winter time.

    I’ve heard of Nature Made but never Glow! Seems we can all use a little hydration as we get older, that’s for sure!
    Do you happen to know if Glow is tested on animals?

    PS – thank you for the coupon code!!!

    This sounds like a great product! I’ve a dry skin and the moisturizer looks like something my skin would love. I like that it’s a multi-functional product.

    It is important to care for yourself everyday. A routine is important to get into.

    Congratulations and know that being a mother is one of the most important jobs anyone could ever hold. I love the take Care of yourself message and this moisturizer supplement sounds like a great product.

      Thank you! And yes, caring for yourself is just as important as caring for those little ones.

    Though I am not a mother, this is definitely a post I can relate to. In general, it is very important to care for your self. Though we may sometimes get lazy and forget, it’s important to remember that if you’re not going to take care of yourself no one else will! And like you say, it should be a top priority!

    1. Fatima Torres

      April 27, 2017 at 9:17 AM

      Yes! I think many of us forget the value in self-care.

    I can relate to the post too. And I definitely could use some care for my hair and nails.

    I’ve taken hair and nail vitamins before but haven’t seen any with moisture benefits. This looks awesome. I bet it’s a necessity in winter!

    I wished I could do more for healthier hair but everything that I have done hasn’t been too great. I will definitely look into this!

    Loving the idea of spending more time on self care. I have to do that more myself.

    I have dry skin all year round so I am constantly looking for new products to try. It is so easy to forget your own care and needs when you have a new baby to care for.

    I haven’t tried Glow by Nature Made® before but I am taking supplements containing biotin. Have to check out Glow products asap!

    I definitely need this! After 2 pregnancies, my skin has changed a ridiculous amount of times. Now that I’m battling acne, I am always looking for a good moisturizer since many acne products leave me dry.
