Skincare regime: update

skincare regime

Due to my pregnancy my skincare regime changed slightly. I cut out salicylic and glycolic acids, basically keeping everything simple. Thankfully, my pregnancy has been great thus far but when it comes to skincare that's one area that quite a few mamas-to-be complain about. It's only natural as our bodies are changing!
Morning-I either skip cleanser all together & just wash my face with water or I use Éminence Lemon Cleanser for a gently wash. Usually if the weather is humid I'll use the cleanser to wash away any oiliness. 
A creamy cleanser that won't strip skin.
Evening- My go-to cleanser for the last few months has been Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, washes off all my makeup including mascara and doesn't leave my skin tight or dry. Inexpensive, effective, and gentle. What else does a cleanser really have to do? It works and will continue to use.

Not a traditional scrub we normally see in North America, the Konjac sponge has been used for centuries in Japan. A vegetable fiber, this sponge effectively and gently exfoliates your skin. A follow up review will be posted in future. My favourite is the Konjac Sponges from Saje. I've purchased the Green tea & Charcoal versions.

I normally don't use a toner in my skincare regime but with the hot humid weather its a refreshing extra step. The L'Occitane Immortalle Brightening Face Mist is an alcohol-free toner that keeps my skin hydrated but refreshed. Can also be used after makeup to help set foundation.

 One of my favourite skincare brands, Vichy Aqua Thermal Night Spa is a refreshing creamy gel that is meant to be used as a night mask treatment. I use this morning and night, leaves skin hydrated and doesn't feel heavy on the skin. Great for oily to combination skin types.

And there you have it! A simple skincare regime that is perfect for the hot Summer months.

Do you change your skincare regime often? If yes, how many times a year.
