As soon as you find out you’re expecting your whole world changes, and a lot of the time, that means your skincare routine too!
During pregnancy, our bodies endure surging hormones, not to mention the stretching skin to make space for your growing bump. Postpartum, your skin might take another knock with sleepless nights and stress. That’s why it’s so important to create a pregnancy safe skincare routine that nourishes and protects your skin as you transition into the most beautiful phase of life.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: having the basics sorted is so essential to a good skincare routine. During pregnancy, you’ll want to keep things fairly simple with a good cleanser, toner, and moisturiser on hand. Make sure to look into your product's ingredient list to avoid using any unsafe ingredients.

While some people experience that enviable pregnancy glow, we’re not all so lucky. During pregnancy, our hormones are continually surging and fluctuating which can result in hormonal acne, pigmentation, or spots. If you’re experiencing any breakouts, you may like to invest in a good topical spot treatment.

Ahh, nights of interrupted sleep and days of new-mum stress. Both are inevitable in the newborn stage and can result in dull, tired, and lacklustre looking skin. While skincare definitely won’t make up for those lost hours of sleep, your skin will thank you for it. Try to find the time to apply a nourishing and revitalising oil or serum to give your skin the boost it deserves.
Our recommendation: Rejuvenating HY C Serum
As a nursing mum, you’ll most likely find yourself praying for something that will help to soothe and protect your increasingly sore nipples. Again, it’s important to do your research and find a product that is naturally safe for you and your bub so that you won’t have to continually wipe off anything before breastfeeding.
Our recommendation: Lanolin Nipple Cream
If you’re rocking some hefty under-eye bags or dark circles, you’re not alone! When we lose our precious beauty sleep, our skin loses its chance to repair and store itself and our body’s ability to produce collagen is affected. That’s why we believe a good eye cream is a must for new mums.
