Anyone else suffer dry skin during or after pregnancy?
Those good ole pregnancy hormones can play havoc on your body during pregnancy and if you'r like me your skin can take a hit too. Hormonal changes rob skin of oil and elasticity in some women, which leads to that dreaded dryness.
A well rounded skin care routine is essential ALL the time but during pregnancy and postpartum it is absolutely vital if you want to stay on top of the dry skin dramas.
For me these 4 steps were and still are the absolute minimum in my skin care routine - and THEY WORK!
1. CLEANSER A good cleanser is first thing on your list. Cleansing your face regularly gets rid of dead skin cells that can contribute to a feeling of dryness. Using an all NATURAL product is super important when you are growing a tiny human which is why our cleanser is ideal for troublesome skin types. It is gentle but will still still do its job and has SO many added goodies in it to combat other issues - ie breakouts (sigh).
2. MOISTURISER I feel like this is a bit of a 'yeh not shit' thing to add to our list but ladies i'm telling you you NEED a decent moisturiser! It should be all natural and soak deep into your skin to help hydrate you ALL day. I cannot live without our Renewal Cram - And YES a night cream is also a good idea but you can use our renewal cream for both (i do!) We developed our products so that we can create a routine that is quick and easy without too many different products so YES our 'day' cream is also our 'night' cream. Lets not over think this list right?!
3. SERUMS So, this is where the little secret weapons come in and they come in the form of SERUMS. Yes I know, I know you've heard all about them they are all over the internet and everyone is selling them they are everywhere. TRUE. But have you noticed that a lot of the ads for serums feature a lovely face that is literally flawless like W.T.A.F. Is that what this serum will do to my skin? I'll take 20 of them here take all my money.
Well, let me tell you something - the internet has been pretty spot on with the serum craze. They are well worth investing in. But you NEED a good product that is NATURAL! There is a difference between products, just like anything and getting a good one with high potency quality ingredients is V.I.T.A.L. Trust me.
So we have 2 serums and there is a good reason for this. We created the 2 that we believe (from personal experience) work and work even better when used together AND work even better again when used with our Daily renewal Cream. So here's what I do - cleanse, HYALURONIC ACID SERUM especially on the dryer parts of my face, then VITAMIN C SERUM all over, and finally Daily Renewal cream to finish. Morning and night, the routine is the same, obviously you can switch it up depending on what works for you. This process will sort. you. out. ladies, it is SIMPLE, QUICK and it bloody works
