Over the years my skincare routine has gone from non-existent to completely essential. Now more than ever, with the busy days and limited sleep that come along with being a mama, my skin needs a little extra attention to be at its best. At this stage in the game, I’ve figured out what my skin needs (hello, hydration!), and what products are going to give me the glowing results I want. I’ve also been making a conscious effort to take better care of all of my skin, especially with warmer weather around the corner. Today I’m sharing a few easy steps I’m taking these days to keep my skin looking fresh and healthy, from head to toe!
Vitamins. I never routinely took a multivitamin until I became pregnant with Cohen two years ago. After a few weeks I noticed my skin, hair and nails were all so much stronger and healthy looking! I’m convinced they’re what’s actually behind the pregnancy glow. Needless to say, I haven’t stopped taking them since, pregnant or not.
Water. This one is so tough for me! I’ve been working to up my water intake every day to keep myself and my skin hydrated from the inside out. I’ve been adding sliced fruit to liven things up, and trying to finish a glass before every meal and snack.
Body. It’s so easy to get caught up in what we’re putting on our faces that we totally neglect a skincare routine for the rest of our body. I’ve become more conscious of what I’m lathering up with in the shower, ever since I was given the chance to try out Dial ® ADVANCED Bar Soap. Besides the fresh, clean scent (it leaves my entire bathroom smelling amazing), it also provides a moisture-rich lather and is infused with Vitamin E and Aloe. It’s gentle on my sensitive skin, and leaves it seriously soft and healthy looking! I’ve converted my husband too, although I think that’s because the bar has an ergonomic shape and is 25% larger than Dial ® bar soaps, so it’s just plain easy to use.
I’ve been alternating between their bar soap (I leave this adorable dish full on my bathroom counter) and Dial ® Soothing Care with Collagen body wash, which is dermatologist tested and ultra soothing. If you’re looking for a girly indulgence, Dial ® Silk & Magnolia with Silk Protein body wash is the perfect pink fix, and for the coconut oil obsessed (guilty) there’s Dial ® Miracle Oil TM Coconut Oil body wash.
These little steps in my routine have quickly translated to better looking skin, and I’m feeling totally ready for Spring dresses and bare limbs!
