Cheryl: On Post-Baby Beauty

Having welcomed her first child, Bear, in March, Cheryl knows as well as any new mother that pampering often takes a back seat pretty quickly once there’s a baby on the scene. Here, as she returns to work by launching a trio of Paint by Cheryl Lip Kits with L’Oréal Paris, she shares her post-baby beauty tips and explains how motherhood has changed her outlook on life.

On skincare

Honestly, for the past few months I haven’t had a beauty regime. Because you get up, you’re with the baby, he naps maybe two or three times a day and in that time that he’s napping you’re doing all the other stuff that needs to be done, like washing up and cleaning his clothes. So you don’t really have time for yourself, in the beginning. It’s not until you adjust and get into a pattern with your child that you can then start making new time, which has just been recently for me. It’s like: oh my god I’d forgotten about all this! I do cleanse before bed – whether or not I’m wearing make-up, because of pollution and things like that – and I do drink a lot of water. And wearing an SPF is vital. I like the Skinceuticals one, that’s my luxury. That and Decléor are my favourite luxury brands.

On her beauty saviour

Coconut oil is amazing. You can use it on your hair, as a mask, on your face, on your body, in your bath, you can eat it, you can put it on the baby… And I started putting oils in the bath with me, oils like Bio Oil, so when I get out I’m already moisturised. It’s one less thing to do. I mean, be careful you don’t slip – I don’t want to be responsible for that!

On relaxation

Nowadays my main way to relax is sleep. Since the baby was about seven weeks old he’s slept seven hours through and now he can sleep for 12, so I’m lucky. But the first time I had a massage, since the baby, I think I went to a dreamland. It’s just me, Liam and the baby rocking around 24/7, so you don’t have one second to yourself really, especially not in that first three months. They’re so precious. So when someone said “go for an hour”, I was like: hallelujah! I think that should be a gift to any new mother.

On make-up

I’ve actually got a new lip collection with L’Oréal Paris, which has three shades – peach, greige and burgundy. For the burgundy I went to Paris last year and we created it from scratch. It was fascinating. I went into a room first and spoke to the top guys, who told me the ins and outs of what they do and the science behind everything. It’s actually amazing what they can do, I didn’t want to leave! Then they started mixing colour right in front of my eyes. So we worked together on it, and I showed them photos and references and stuff like that. It’s out for autumn so I’d wear it with a goldy kind of eyeshadow and just loads of beautiful eyelashes. And a bit of contouring. And one pound from each lip kit sold is going to my charity which is amazing for me. I’ve always had a really good relationship between my charity and L’Oréal and now we’re all intertwined with the Prince’s Trust so it just works.

On exercise

Tracey Anderson has a streaming service and it’s heaven sent. I have a space in my house where I heat up the room and then just stream it and follow that. I’ve always done Tracey Anderson. When I lived in the States I went to Brentwood, to her studio, but the streaming is brilliant, so easy and you can do it in your living room.

On hair

Pregnancy is great for your hair. But afterwards you have all these hormonal changes and it does change it. the L’Oréal hair masks are great, or coconut oil. If I’m just sat inside, nobody sees me, so I just keep it on! And then if I’m going out, L’Oréal Paris has a great mousse which you can put on towel-dried hair for a bit of volume.

On returning to work

What’s interesting is that I love music now more than I ever did. The baby loves music too, and I always played it throughout my pregnancy. So back to the grind, back to popstar life, back to recording. It’s all fun again. I haven’t released music for a long time but it’s good to clear your mind – silence and tranquillity and beautiful things happening to me has helped me to see things differently.

On her new outlook on life

I think I’m still adapting in some ways. I just feel differently about everything to be honest – my views on everything have changed. Firstly you see the fear in everything, like sharp edges! Your whole being changes because it’s not about you anymore. If something happens to you it doesn’t matter as much but if it happened to your child, the impact would be severe. I do worry about where social media will be headed by the time he’s old enough to have it, you know? It’s scary. I’m so glad I didn’t have social media when I was growing up. We didn’t have any of that. I’m glad I was able to have a popstar life without camera phones in those early days. Everyone’s a paparazzi now. Then you just signed autographs. Nobody wants those anymore!

[VIDEO] Cheryl shares top tips for multi-tasking mums

Cheryl has exclusively revealed her top beauty tip for busy new mums to us – coconut oil!

Speaking in her first interview since giving birth to five-month-old Bear, the star explained why the product was perfect for time-pressed mums trying to get ready in a hurry.

And best of all, her go-to product can be bought on the high street for less than a tenner.

She explained: “My top tips for new mams would be – you don’t always get time to moisturise, when you’ve jumped in the shower quickly while they’re napping, or have a quick bath – so my thing would be, go in the bath and put in bath oil in with you so you don’t have to worry about that and you’re moisturised when you come out.

“I use coconut oil from head to toe. Literally, you can eat it, put it on your hair and you can put it on your face, your body. It’s brilliant stuff.”
