Pregnancy Skin Care Routine

So let me be very clear that skincare is kind of a big thing for me. I’ve always had to be very careful with the products I use, from my makeup and face washes to even my hair care products. I have super sensitive skin. Even a speck of hairspray on my skin can result in a blemish! Ugh the struggle was RE-AL. But can I just say, if there’s one thing I have loved about pregnancy, it’s that my skin has never been better! And you’re going to be pretty surprised when I tell you what I’ve been doing for skin care…

So when I found out I was pregnant, I immediately stopped using my skin care products. I read the labels, looked up the ingredients to make sure they were safe/unsafe for pregnancy, and the results were basically “meh I wouldn’t use this for now”. So moving forward I did used the following products and in these steps…


I have been using and continued to use THESE face cloths for make up removal (I use 2 each time) and then rinse really well with water.

Spritz with THIS facial spray!


Ok so this might get a little weird, but I love using natural ingredients for my skin! From mosquito bites to exfoliating and cleansing my skin, baking soda with a little bit of water can do amazing things guys! I make a little baking soda mask and let it set on my skin for about 10-15 mins and then as I wash off I scrub into my skin to exfoliate!

Then right after, I make a little mask with egg whites and lemon juice! Egg whites have astringent properties that help shrink pores by tightening the skin and the lemon juice (aside from making your face smell like a sweet little lemon) has vitamin C and citric acid, so they can help brighten and lighten your skin when used over time! And also is antibacterial for any dirt and germs!

Then again spritzing my face with THIS!


So definitely keep in mind that everyone is so different and if you’re going to try this, your skin might be totally different than mine! If you’re allergic to or have sensitivity to any of the above products either stop or don’t use them at all!

Sometimes I wonder if I wasn’t doing my skin a favor my stripping it of it’s natural oils and all of the “care” I was doing was backfiring. Only time will tell as my hormones continue to rage on and change (dramatically) over these next months and postpartum. TBD but I’ll keep y’all posted. Until then, I’m going to enjoy the hell out of my glowing, baby soft face and pray to God it doesn’t change!

So a few years ago I mentioned to my dad that I wanted to put some plants around our place. He suggested to start with a few succulents, since he already knew I wasn’t going to be able to handle anything else. Sure ‘nough, the succulents didn’t last more than 2 years. But when we […]
