Age: 36 years old
Skin type: hormonal – pregnant
I am 32 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I have always had a good skincare routine - however at the start of my pregnancy I wasn't exactly the A+ student, between feeling unwell and exhausted, my daily routine went out the window. My holy grail product during this time was the Revitalising Toner, it was a god send as I was constantly spritzing my skin, it was sooo refreshing and hydrating. It really hydrated my skin as I definitely found my skin dryer at the start of my pregnancy.
Once I got to my 2nd trimester, I was starting to feel human again and had lots of energy so I was able to dedicate a bit more time to my skincare routine. My routine became my me time as I work full time in a very busy environment.
AM Routine - I cleansed (Revitalising Cleanser), toned (Revitalising Toner), applied the Advanced Calming Serum- hero product for my cooling my rosy Irish cheeks, Advanced Eye Repair and Advanced Time Delay Day Cream which has the SPF 30 built in which is super important.
Once a week I use the Advanced Pro-Radiance Enzyme Peel and the Revitalising Repair Mask as my little pamper session along with the SKINICIAN Body lotion on my bump. I did add the Purifying Mask in every now and again when I got a hormonal breakout - mainly on my chin.
The one product that I do miss in my routine is the Ageless Overnight Retinol Power Balm; this is my go to product for anti-ageing and who doesn't want that! However, it is unsuitable to use during pregnancy due to the retinol, but hubby knows where to pick me up a bottle as soon as baby comes.
My skin in general during pregnancy has been fab and I can honestly say it's all down to my routine that was given specifically to me from my local SKINICIAN salon. I have been using SKINICIAN for 5 years now and I would never change!
