19Beauty Comes At A Price
Isabelle* regrets spending so much time and energy on her looks after giving birth, rather than spending that time on her newborn.
“I’ve always struggled with perfectionism over my looks. But it got to a whole new level after we had our daughter. Suddenly I didn’t have the time to put
into my normal beauty routine.
I felt ugly and unaccomplished when my hair wasn’t done, no makeup on, and wearing sweats. My obsession got in the way of me enjoying the little moments with my baby. It made me hate the newborn times instead of loving them like other moms.”
