When I found out I was pregnant one of the first things I knew would need to change was my skincare routine. I am obsessed with all the lotions and potions out there but I know a lot of them contain harsh chemicals that may not be very friendly to baby. So through trial and error over the past 8 months, I have settled on this current routine and honestly, have no complaints.
For my belly, I mix the Mama Bee’s belly butter along with the Belli elasticity oil and cover all parts that seem to be stretching, from my chest to belly and even love handles. I haven’t seen a stretch mark yet, so we will see!
For my body, I adore Bath and Body works lotions. They always have great sales too. The smell “Sweet pea” is my favorite and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth all day.
But my favorite combo out of everything is my night time ritual. Baths for me have become an absolute must and almost every night when I come home, I light a candle and start a bath. I use the Bath and Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint “Stress relief” bubble bath and the whole bathroom just lights up with aromatherapy. I wash my face, apply the Fresh Umbrian Clay face mask, dim the lights and jump in the tub. You can find me in “la la land” for the next 20 minutes. (Just be careful with the temperature, you don’t want to cook the baby! )
