Far From Instagram Perfection

DALEČ OD INSTAGRAM PERFEKCIJE

Ohh, če bi me le zdaj videla. Mastni lasje, speti v petelinjo figo in utrujena koža. Da o mozolju sredi čela sploh ne govorim. Daleč od Instagram perfekcije me je zadela materinska realnost. Spomin na dvajseta, visoke petke in urejeno življenje, počasi bledi. Smešno je, da kot sveže pečena mamica naenkrat nimam več časa poskrbeti zase. Po mestu hodim ”all naturele” z metlo na glavi, medtem ko moj otrok šminkira ves dišeč in urejen po ljubljanskih ulicah. Ja, svoje spa tretmaje sem zamenjala z njenimi kopalnimi uricami in prav nič ne pogrešam. No, to pa je zdaj bila ena velika laž… Res, da obožujem vsako minuto v njeni družbi, ampak včasih bi pa prav pasala kakšna nega telesa in masaža. Očitno so ti utopični dnevi daleč od trenutnega stanja, do takrat pa mi ne preostane druga, kot da kradem njene izdelke, da se vsaj malce pocarkljam.

Življenje moje drage hčerke pa je nekoliko drugačno. Zdrava koža, urejeni lasje (no tisti trije štrleči laski) in stilirana od glave do pete. Ja, godi se ji dobro, saj dnevno skrbim za njene spa urice in uporabljam najboljše produkte. Že od nekdaj sem skrbno pazila, da svojo kožo negujem z naravnimi in nežnimi formulami in lahko si le predstavljaš, kako stroga sem pri izbiri produktov za Izabelo. Drage prijateljice, so mi na baby showerju med drugim podarile tudi Afroditino baby linijo in tako sem že v nosečnosti imela priložnost testirati nekatere produkte, ki jih uporabljam in delim z Izabelo še danes.. Moja ljubezen do 100 % naravnega mazila in mandljevega olja ni skrivnost, saj sta v nosečnosti rešila trebušček pred strijami. In prav ta izdelka sedaj dominirata pri negi Izabeline kože. Olje zmeraj dodajam v vodico za umivanje, medtem ko 100% naravno mazilo uporabljam za njene masaže. Vsaj nekomu se dobro godi.

Tudi pri kopanju so nežni izdelki nepogrešljivi. Tako za tiste 3 laske na glavi uporabljam šampon, ki je sestavljen iz skrbno izbranih naravnih sestavin, dermatološko preizkušen ter iz hipoalergenih parfumov. Priznam, včasih sem še nerodna in jo poškropim po očeh, vendar nikdar ni imela reakcije, zato jo sedaj brez strahu in z veseljem gledam, kako čofota.

No, naslednji dan gospodična paradira po ulicah, jaz pa še zmeraj vsa neurejena z metlo na glavi. Še dobro, da v teh trenutkih ne vidim dalje od svojega otroka, da spregledam vse opazke mimoidočih.



FAR FROM INSTAGRAM PERFECTION

If only you could see me right now. Greasy hair and tired face. Far away from Instagram perfection motherhood hit me. It’s funny how I all the sudden don’t have time to get ready and look presentable in public. I walk around make up free and messy when my baby is all dressed up looking like a Prada model. Yap, I changed my spa treatments and pampering hours with her bathing time and I don’t miss anything at all. Well, that was one big fat lie… I do enjoy every second in her company but mama needs a bath too.. or a spa would be nice at the moment. But obviously these big dreams are far away from my reality and there is nothing left to do than to steal her baby product just to pamper myself for a minute.

Since forever I’ve been careful with what I use on my skin, and imagine how I complicate with Izabela. Even more, as she got rashes all over her body right after birth. So from then on, I use only few products that I am sure are gentle enough for her baby skin.

I was using Afrodita baby products already during my pregnancy and even though I had the biggest baby bump, I’m lucky to say I didn’t get stretch marks. Now I use the same products for my baby and even added few more from the line. Next to 100% natural balm and natural almond oil,  which I am obsessed with, I love to spoil her skin with dermatology tested sensitive shampoos and foams. As we get clumsy during bath time it is important that there is no reaction after a big splash.

And the next day, my lady is all beautiful when I still look like a mess. Luckily nowadays I don’t see anything but my baby, so I can skip all those snarky comments.

With love,

Vanesa S.
