If you have been reading my beauty posts for a while, you will know how much I love Bio Oil. It is like the Holy Grail of skincare. I love how multi-tasking it is. It can be used on scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, ageing skin and dehydrated skin. Bio Oil is definitely one of my favourite body oils. I am never without one. It comes as no surprise that this body oil is a bestseller on Amazon.

Best Skincare Products for during and after pregnancy

*Affiliate links.

Pregnancy does take a massive toll on our physical and mental health. Our skin also suffers thanks to the stretching, hormones and extra weight we carry. It can be too much sometimes, which is why we must take good care of our skin whilst pregnant and after pregnancy. We must remember to care for our skin regardless of how tired and busy we may be after delivery. I know how tiring it can be after delivery. I remember how tired I was after birthing the twins. Skincare was the last thing on my mind. Even taking a shower felt like a chore. I didn’t feel like doing anything but sleep. So I know how easy it is to neglect your skin during and after pregnancy. But caring for your skin is best and your skin will thank you for it for years and years to come.

Here are some of the 3 skincare products you should try during and after pregnancy –

 

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturiser £11.59

This Moisturiser is great for those struggling with extra dry skin during or after pregnancy. It works so well, locking moisture for up to 48 hours, which is so amazing. Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturiser is gentle on skin but yet very effective. I recommend this moisturiser for any one dealing with extra dry skin, especially during pregnancy.

This moisturiser is all you need to get your skin glowing again. It absorbs quickly into extra dry skin, including very rough spots like heels, elbows, and knees. It penetrates the five layers of skin to heal dryness at the root. 

 

Bio-Oil Specialist Skincare Oil 200ml £13.69

I have been using Bio-Oil Specialist Skincare Oil for many years now and I can testify to how amazing this body oil is. It is such a great skincare product. If you must use 1 skincare product during and after pregnancy, I strongly recommend you use Bio-Oil. This oil helps prevent formation of stretch marks during pregnancy and helps improve the appearance of stretch marks you may have already.  It also helps improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, new and old scars. 

I always make sure I have a bottle of Bio-Oil in my bathroom cabinet. It is so useful, which is why it is UK’s No.1 selling scar & stretch mark product.

 

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Massage Stretch Marks Lotion £7.95

This is another great product I used during and after my pregnancy. It contains Shea Butter, Argan Oil, Elastin and Collagen which helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks.  This body lotion is also free of Mineral Oil, Parabens and Phthalates. The mild fragrance is so amazing. I really like it. It also helps in reducing cellulite marks, which is many of us battle with. If you are after trying a new body lotion to combat stretch marks and cellulite marks, then you should give this a try.

How to get your makeup to last all day part 1

*Affiliate links.

Makeup is like magic to me. The right makeup products have the power to transform everyone. Which is why I like to pay special attention to my makeup products. I am lucky to get opportunities to review many products each month. Some products are better than others, and I always make sure I get the amazing products again once I run out.

I have had the privilege to use all sorts of makeup and I know the importance of using the right makeup. Many of us want our makeup to stay put all day. I remember growing up, that was one of the issues I had. I would apply makeup before leaving the house, and it would be wiped off within a few hours. So I know all about how frustrating it can be when your makeup seems to just vanish off your face.

How to get your makeup to last all day

So how do you get your makeup to last all day? Here are some tips that you may find useful –

 

Care for the skin underneath

Having a good skincare routine is the first step to helping your makeup stay on for longer. You should ensure you are using the right skincare products. Ensure you use the right cleansers, makeup remover, moisturisers and face creams. I like to spoil myself with a face mask every week. It does wonders for my skin. For moisturisers, I currently use Bio Oil and No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Day Cream SPF 15 50ml.

Also, make sure you take your makeup off before you go to sleep and treat your skin right from within by eating and drinking right. Once your skin is smooth and supple, your makeup tends to stay on for longer.  I currently use AVON True Nutra Effects Gentle Bi-Phase Eye Make-up Remover, and it wipes every trace of my makeup off. 

 

Use a primer first

Now this is a very important tip. You should apply a primer first before you apply your foundation. I always use a primer first if I know I am going to be out all day and I need my makeup staying on.

I currently use Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer and it is so amazing. It keeps my makeup on for more than 12 hours.

Quality Foundation and Concealer

I like to spend a bit more when it comes to my foundation and concealer because I believe the more I spend, the better the quality. I have all sorts of foundation and concealer products in my makeup storage box, but I always recommend Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place FoundationIt is super long lasting, stays on all day. This foundation is definitely number 1 in the makeup market.

When it comes to concealers, I prefer MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. It conceals all that needs concealing and it stays on all day. Love it.

Face Powder that works

Once my primer, foundation and concealer (in that order) have been applied and blended in, the next stage is applying the face powder. I go for quality here as well, and I like my MAC. The Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation by MAC works great for me. It stays on all day and I hardly ever need to top up except for my t section.

The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In Place Powder Makeup SPF10 is another favourite of mine. It works great with the foundation and leaves my face looking stunning all day. It just glides on and stays on.

I will be writing a follow up with recommending more great makeup products –  eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, eye liners and more. So look out for that post in the next few days.
