Me too! I was using a tea tree shampoo but that isn’t helping and neither is head and shoulders

🧼 Skincare for busy mamas 🧼 • If you don’t have much time for a lengthy routine, focus on hydration and exfoliation • Hydration will keep your skin supple and keep it youthful looking, so prioritise using a rich moisturiser or serum • Exfoliation will help boost cell turnover and remove dead, dull skin cells which helps with fine lines and brightening your skin • These two steps will go a long way!

💄 Makeup for busy mamas 💄 • The best thing for busy mamas? Multitasking products that help you cut out steps and streamline your routine • You could use blush or bronzer as an eyeshadow, or use bronzer or highlighter as your only base product to perk up your skin • It’s about playing with your makeup to find things that work in multiple ways!

☀️Makeup in the summer ☀️ • During pregnancy and just in the heat in general, you might find your makeup sweating off • Make sure you always set with translucent powder • Avoid cream products as these break down easily, powder lasts longer and helps absorb excess oil • Avoid too many layers (serums, moisturisers, primers etc)

So true about the translucent powder. Wore some Monday and my face looked amazing all afternoon. It’s like 90 degrees in Texas.

🤰Pregnancy acne 🤰 • This is really common, you’re not alone! • Thankfully, a lot of the over the counter treatments for acne are pregnancy safe in limited quantities • Try ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide (in very small percentages) Cleansers, spot treatments, or masks with these ingredients are safe • You can also try a zinc supplement or eat zinc rich foods like nuts, seeds and beans

I have been told by my dermatologist that sacyclic acid isn't safe in pregnancy. I have had success with acnederm gel, dots for spots, eraorganics scrub & facial massage with vit e oil (topical only). I'm hoping these products will help with my post pregnancy acne too.
