Media personality, Eku Edewor is ‘The Cover’ star of Accelerate TV this month.
In the interview, the new mother of one talked about her beauty routine. She also gave advice for the kind of products that should be used on new borns.
On how motherhood has changed her style
I definitely have an appreciation for flats now even though I was never really a heels-person. I wore heels to work, now I am always trying to incorporate ways that I can wear a lower heel or just more comfortable shoes but maybe when my baby is a little older and a lot more independent, (I’ll ditch the flats again). Maybe it’s because I am carrying her all the time and I always want her with me, I discovered that it is safer to be closer to the ground.
On products for babies
Any product that I use, I read reviews, first of all just to make sure that nobody is selling me a dud. I learn about the ingredients on the bottle. I think for babies, it is better to always go as natural as possible. That doesn’t mean that those brands that you look at the back of the bottle and don’t understand the ingredients aren’t natural, because that might just be the technical name for the natural product.
I think I used to get confused about that and be like ‘uh, shouldn’t it just be coconut oil, full stop?’ There are pretty great products for babies, I use Mustela, which I chose particularly because of the smell. I found it in a pharmacy in London, it was the nicest smelling product, it smells like a baby if you know what I mean. I was like this is a baby smell, I even had to buy the perfume for my daughter because it was a baby’s smell in a bottle.
