Pregnancy & Skincare
Skincare can seem a bit intimidating during pregnancy. Your hormones are all over the place and each trimester might seem like a completely different era with your skin type. For most of my pregnancy I dealt with severely dry skin, opposed to my previously oily skin. I tried several serums and moisturizers and for some reason the usual drugstore products I used did not seem to be enough.
Around my third trimester I listened to the Beauty Closet podcast featuring Miranda Kerr. She talked about her skincare line Kora Organics and her passion towards producing a clean and healthy brand for the whole family. I loved her story, the mission, and what Kora Organics stood for so by the end of the episode I was sold.
Noni Glow Face Oil
After doing my research and checking out their website, I came to the conclusion that my best option was going to be their Face Oil. Although, it seemed pricey to me at first, I felt that my skin was in desperate need of a high quality product.
I started using the oil in June and religiously applied it after cleansing my face and before moisturizing. Because my skin was so dry, I noticed a change immediately. It took around a week to two weeks for my “pregnancy glow” to kick in and after that, I got compliments about my complexion and I also noticed how clear and healthy my skin looked. Of course, I did drink a ton of water so I know that the face oil was not the sole reason why my skin seemed so well nourished.
I gave birth in August and resumed using the oil after my pregnancy as well. Of course, my hormones have been fluctuating so I have had to alter some products that I use, but I still use this oil, just not as often as before. I love that the oil is meant for both dry and oily skin and perfect for sensitive skin like mine.
- Cleanse face in the morning
- Apply Noni Glow Face Oil
- Apply preferred moisturizer (I use Glow watermelon serum)
My current routine is VERY simple and I keep it that way so I can cater to my baby’s unpredictable needs. I’ve learned as a mom to become more efficient with my time in order to spend the most time taking care of my baby without completely eliminating some “me” time.
