Updated Simple Skincare Routine

Since my skin has been so unsettled during pregnancy I’ve really had to pull my skincare routine right back to basics. I’ve been wearing a lot less makeup to try and help the hormonal pregnancy acne and I’ve been trying to use natural products as much as I can.

Bioderma Micellar Water.

On the occasions I am wearing makeup Bioderma’s micellar water will forever be my go to for removing the majority of it. I do always double cleanse but I find the micellar water takes off the top layer and my eye makeup in particular really well. It doesn’t aggravate my sensitive eyes at all which is a big win. My favourite is from their sensibio range but their hydrabio range is really great too.

Pai Camelia and Rose Gentle Cleanser

My all time favourite cleanser and one that I honestly don’t think I’ll ever find a rival for. Pai products, if you haven’t heard of them already, are specifically formulated for sensitive skin. This cleanser is so gentle, hydrating, doesn’t strip your skin and just leaves your face feeling amazing. If you haven’t tried this yet you need to make it top of your list!

Pixi Rose Caviar Essence

The Pixi Rose Caviar Essence is a relatively new find for me but I’m head over heels. It has a similar consistency to a serum if not slightly lighter. It’s ultra hydrating but also soothes and cools your skin when you apply it. I love using rose products in my skincare routine, it reacts so well with my skin and really helps with any dry and flaky patches.

Temple Spa Life Defence

I pulled this out of my moisturiser drawer a few weeks ago as the weather has started to get a little nicer and it contains SPF 25. Life Defence is a really great everyday moisturiser that protects your skin from the elements while keeping it hydrated all day long. You can also top it up throughout the day if you’re going to be outside a lot and want to maximise the SPF protection.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Overnight Mask

My favourite spot treatment previously was to use my Kiehl’s Blue Herbal Cleanser, it contains salicylic acid but in a mild concentration so it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I had read that salicylic acid is absorbed by your skin and can be passed onto your unborn baby so I decided to stop using it while I’m expecting and find a more natural spot treatment. I fell back on my favourite The Body Shop Tea Tree range and it’s been the only thing keeping my skin semi presentable. Obviously it’s not a miracle worker, it can’t beat those raging pregnancy hormones but it does a great job at taking away redness and drying my breakouts up so that they appear less angry.

Other than lip balm these are the only skincare products I’ve been using recently and I’m actually really enjoying having a simple skincare routine. Obviously I treat myself to the odd hydrating or skin clearing face mask depending on what my skin needs but all in all a simple skincare routine is what my pregnant skin is in need of right now.

Is your skincare routine simple with only a few steps of do you like to pack on the products? Have you tried any of the products I’ve mentioned?

    First of all, your pictures are so beautiful. Secondly, everyone I know (and follow) has been raving about some of the products from Pixi’s line…I might just have to bite the bullet and pick up a few! Thanks for sharing! xo

    The only thing ive tried from your skincare routine is the body shop tea tree range, which I love! I would really like to try Bioderma, I feel like the only blogger who hasn’t tried it, is there anywhere I can get ahold of it in the UK?

    I am dying to try out something from Pixi as I’ve heard their skincare is fab, will definitely look into the Rose Caviar Essence. I LOVE the Body Shop Tea Tree mask though! The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is a new addition to my skincare routine and I’m loving it!

    Your pictures are so stunning!
    I really need to try Bioderma micellar water as everyone says how good it is, I use Bobbi Browns ‘soothing oil cleanser’ for taking my make-up off and that’s lovely aswell.

    I love the bioderma miceller water for stubborn eye make up! I wear fake lashes a lot and that really helps with removing the glue and keeping my skin happy! Gorgeous post!

    I really enjoyed this post! My skin routine is super simple and I’ve been using the same products since forever so I feel very inspired after reading your post! I’ll definitely have to look into some of the products and brands you mentioned! Thanks for sharing!

    I swear by The Body Shop Tea Tree range, it’s so fabulous for keeping skin clear! I also love the overnight mask and am a HUGE fan of the anti-imperfection solution, too. I’ve never heard of Pai before but that cleanser sounds so lovely and soothing, Camellia is a gorgeous ingredient for skincare!

    Some amazing brands in your routine! I love Mario Badescu. They are the main brand in my skincare routine, I would definitely recommend them :). The Body Shop have a great vitamin C liquid peel that works wonders too – Stacey x

    Glad you found a neat routine to keep your skin bright! I haven’t tried any of these products before but I am so interested in the Pixi Rose Caviar Essence! I tend to stick to Clinique’s skincare products for my day and night sets :). Thanks for sharing!
