I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting my skin to change as dramatically as it did post pregnancy, but it did. About a month after having my little one I started to notice the texture of my skin change. I lost that pregnancy glow over time and my skin started to be rough to the touch and there were a few dry patchy spots on my forehead and around my mouth and chin. I hadn’t changed anything in my routine or change any of the skincare products I was using so I was unsure what exactly was happening to my skin. After a bit of research, I found out that your skin can become very dry and patchy after having a child due to hormonal shifts. Some women even report their skin losing that tightness or firmness it once had. So you know me, I’m not about that life. I figured the best way to combat all the post pregnancy skin issues would be to change up my skincare routine, so for the past week or so I’ve added two new skincare products to my routine.

Currently, I do a simple cleanse with the Nuria Purifying Cleanser. I follow-up by moisturizing with the Nuria Calm Daily Moisturizer. I’m currently using witch hazel to tone and the Nuria Facial Mist to refresh throughout the day. I also started using the Sacred Mama Organics Beauty Oil to protect and use as a preventive measure for anti-aging. All of these products are new to my beauty stash and have provided great results over the past week. The patchy spots on my forehead, around my mouth and chin have cleared up and my skin again feels soft to the touch. I’m noticing that if I perform this process twice a day (once in the morning and once at night) my skin stays moisturized and the breakouts I was having on my face don’t happen as often. As I have mentioned in past blogposts, I do have eczema. My eczema hasn’t flared up in years, but unfortunately, after having my little one I started to see some flare ups on my shoulders , arms and my back. I started using my baby’s Tubby Todd All Over Ointment and that has helps clear up the breakouts in those areas. If you’re a mom you know all to well about stretch marks. I’ve been using my Earth Kissed Beauty Mother Nature Nourishing Butter which is great for postpartum use.
I think it’s good to switch out your skincare products and change up your routine every now and then. I think with our bodies constantly changing over time, you have to choose products that are conducive to the change. I wasn’t expecting my skin to change so dramatically after pregnancy, but making the transition to new product lines and mixing them with some old faithful products that have been in my skincare routine for years is awesome and it’s not so bad. It was actually a pretty easy transition if you ask me. After having a baby in 2020 you learn very quickly to adjust to all life has to throw at you and my skincare routine is no exception to that. Here’s to change and making smooth transitions.
Till next time.
