Perfectly formulated to help maintain a clear, radiant complexion throughout pregnancy, Gorgeous Glow balancing facial wash deep cleans and gently soothes sensitive, hormonal or misbehaving skin.
What’s in it
Our gentle, low-lather formula gets your skin deep-down clean with five natural coconut-derived cleansers that get the job done without irritation. We added a dash of pregnancy-safe exfoliating Lactic Acid that works wonders for blemishes, but that’s just the beginning. Your skin also gets balancing Probiotics, antibacterial (and healing) Tea Tree Oil, antioxidant Green Tea Leaf Extract for protection from the elements, a blend of hydrating Omega-rich organic oils that keep skin springy, and moisturising organic Aloe for a little extra hydration.
How to use it
Every morning and night, apply a small amount to damp skin (paying special attention to your T-zone) and wash away makeup, dirt. Rinse with warm water and pat skin dry.
Treat your face to a massage – in the form of an extra minute at the sink or splurge on a professional facial (like our Gorgeous Glow balancing facial)! Kickstarting your skin’s circulation boosts lymphatic drainage to send puffiness on its way, and gives your skin the extra oxygen and nutrients it needs to stay happy and healthy.
We know how irresistible it is to have a go at spots, especially during those close up midnight inspections in the mirror. Our tactic for not touching? A little dab of clear nail polish on the pad of your finger will instantly make you aware that you’re getting handy—and after a few days it just might help you break your habit for good.
Every facialist and dermatologist we know has scolded us a time (or three) for picking. We’ve made great strides and you can, too.
Pregnancy should be a time of joy, but we know that it also comes with its share of worry. Don’t let that worry show on your gorgeous face. Deep breaths that you feel down in your tummy give your entire body a pick-me-up by offering more oxygen to each and every cell. This relaxation technique also promotes fit, firm skin because this oxygen gets to the cells in your skin, too.
We spend most of the day shallow breathing, with no real thought about getting that oxygen deep into our bodies. Before you wash your face, try inhaling through your nose for a count of 7, and then out through pursed lips (like blowing a kiss) for a count of 10. Really focus on feeling the breath. Remember this is giving your mind a rest too – think as you breathe ‘BE HERE NOW’.
To keep skin fit and fabulous (especially while pregnant) the right superfoods can help to make the most of your glow.
That salmon, avocado or handful of nuts—and its mega-dose of omegas—do more than help hydrate and keep skin springy. Omegas also boost your skin’s ability to heal, so those blemishes go away faster.
Nuts and seeds
A handful of pumpkin seeds or plain-old peanuts give your skin a hefty serving of zinc, which works to boost your immune system and balance pimple-prone skin.
Green leafy vegetables
In addition to good-for-your-skin antioxidants, green leafy veggies are rich in nutrients that help fight the inflammation associated with breakouts. High in fiber as well, these vegetables may also help prevent blood sugar spikes after eating, which some studies have linked to acne.
