At the risk of getting lashed (no pun intended) out on left right and centre, let me tell you my struggle with eye creams: I didn’t believe that they work.

I used to write on health and beauty topics for a couple of local magazines back in the day and was inundated everyday by beauty products — from mascaras and hair serums to foundation and of course, eye creams. I enjoyed working on the makeup stories because I could see immediately whether that shade of concealer would melt like second skin or if the mascara really made my eyes pop. But when the stash of eye creams started bursting out of the office drawers it was hard to ignore them anymore.

guestcontributor1Today, I would like to introduce Adlena, our new contributor on MsGlitzy.com. Some of you may be familiar with her – after all, she had shown us her makeup pouch 2 Christmases ago.

Adlena recently became a Mum and she will be sharing with us some Mummy beauty and fashion tips on the blog. I’m very excited to read her posts! I hope you’ll enjoy them too.

Five months after I had my baby, Keri, I must say I’m missing my glowing pregnancy skin.

In my early stages of pregnancy I was warned of the perils of being pregnant; be prepared for crazy breakouts on your chest and neck like I had, recalled one fellow mummy friend. I had freckles popping up all over my face!, said the other.

Much to their chagrin, I was one of the few lucky ones: for the whole 40 weeks, my skin had never been better. My “kuali”(read: oily wok) face was non existent and I could get by entire days just with translucent powder, blusher and eyeliner. Yep, no concealer, no foundation whatsoever.Thank you Keri for making mummy pretty, I would say quietly to myself as I rubbed my belly.

Now that she’s out, I’m not saying my skin took to a sudden worse, but it’s just not as radiant and oil-free as before. No thanks to late night feedings and just general ennui and fatigue of having to manage a small business while juggling the needs of an infant and doing household chores on a daily basis.

So what can I do to hide at least some of those imperfections just so my clients and co-workers won’t think that I’m going to crumble in front of them from exhaustion just by looking at my face?

I have six skincare saving graces:
