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.

Ditch Bags Under The Eyes For Good

If there is one thing that frustrates most women, it has to be trying to deal with bags under the eyes. Unfortunately, the skin around our eyes starts to sag as we age, which is a sign of ageing that we can’t stop completely. Not only that, though, but bags under the eyes can be made worse due to a variety of factors, including tiredness. Thankfully, there are a few things that can be done to reduce their appearance and help you feel a lot more comfortable about your look. Read on to find out more!

Get Some Sleep

First of all, the best way to combat those pesky bags under your eyes is to combat your tiredness. So, it could be necessary to work on your sleep. If you can’t remember the last time you replaced your mattress, you might want to read Ted and Stacey’s mattress guides to find a comfortable one that will meet your needs. You should also consider getting into a good bedtime routine so that your mind and body can wind down and prepare for sleep. When you wake up, you should feel a lot more refreshed, and your skin will look better as a result.

 

Use Tea Bags

Sure, tea tastes great, but have you ever thought about using it on your face? Probably not, but it’s worth doing! There’s caffeine in tea, and if you apply tea bags underneath your eyes, the caffeine will help to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the appearance of any bags and dark circles. Green tea is the best type for this as it has some anti-inflammatory properties. Simply steep the tea bags for a few minutes in warm water. Take them out and wait until they have cooled to apply them to your face.

 

Get Your Sinuses Checked

Sometimes a problem with the sinuses can cause bags under the eyes. Thankfully, your doctor should be able to advise you on the best medication to treat this if you go and see them. They might suggest that you try to clear your sinuses with a neti pot, but most of the time a simple nasal inhaler is used to clear the airways. Once your sinuses begin to clear, your eye bags should, hopefully, start to reduce.

 

Drink Plenty

When we don’t drink enough, our skin can become quite dehydrated. When this happens, wrinkles, blemishes, and dark patches are a lot more noticeable on the face. It can also increase the appearance of bags under the eyes. So, make sure you drink plenty throughout the day and especially just before you go to bed. The body loses quite a bit of water while we sleep, but drinking plenty before bedtime ensures you don’t wake up with a dry face.

 

Look For Eye Creams With Retinol

Eye creams, like the ones on cosmopolitan.com, can also help reduce bags under the eye. When you are looking for a new one, make sure it contains retinol. This ingredient is very close to vitamin A and can help the skin look smooth and youthful.

 

Say goodbye to bags under the eyes!
