If you would have told me a year ago that I’d be writing a post about skin care, I would have laughed in your face.

A year ago I was STRUGGLING with my skin…but I’m so so thankful for how far my skin journey has come!

You see…my body LOVES to be pregnant. My skin LOVES to be pregnant.

My skin is like WHAT THE HECK…no baby in your belly…welcome to cystic acne HELL.

Then I get pregnant and my skin is like “yes…this is how we like you best…hormonal and with child.”

So while I was pregnant this time around, I was INSISTENT on getting into a good skin care routine that would {fingers crossed} carry over into postpartum life.

I scoured the internet, Instagram {Jen Reed is a wealth of knowledge} and Pinterest and I am so beyond thrilled with my skin.

So here’s what I’ve got going on as of August 2020…I’ll keep you posted friends!

Botanic Tree Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser

Just do yourself a favor…this stuff is amazing! It smells like the spa, feels so good and is what I was washing my face with every single night for a long time. Then I started thinking that was a bit much, so now I wash every other night with this. It’s one of my holy grail skin care items!

Palmers Skin Therapy Oil

This stuff…YOU ALL. If I had to pick one thing to take on an island with me…THIS WOULD BE IT. I’ve even made Alex start using it…don’t tell him I told you.

Biore Rose Quartz Charcoal Cleanser

When I don’t use the Botanic Tree cleanser, this is what I use. Almost every morning and then every other (ish) night. it’s super thick so I’m pretty sure this bottle will last for about 4.5 years!

Aveeno Positively Radiant Sunscreen

During these strange Covid times, I’m not wearing makeup a lot. So in the mornings, I quickly wash my face with the Biore cleanser and put on sunscreen and that’s it most days! I have tried TONS of sunscreens. This is the only one that doesn’t burn when I apply it or break me out. So until my skin rejects it…this is my sunscreen. This is another thing I’m even having Alex do every morning.

Derma Roller

I’ll be honest, I’ve had this for about a year and didn’t start using this consistently until about three months ago. But it is incredible. My skin feels so soft the next morning! Leanne Barlow swears by it, so I just decided to be consistent with it for a few weeks and noticed such a huge difference in the consistency of my skin!

GrandeLash Lash Enhancing Serum

I’ve used three different lash growing serums and this is the one I swear by! It lasts months so don’t be shocked by the cost! Sometimes I forget how much my lashed have grown until I put on mascara. The change is pretty incredible

Okay friends…that’s it! I’ll keep you updated! And make sure to check out Instagram if you want to hear about it all first hand!

Happy Monday!
