Skincare basics: moisturisers and sunscreen 🌞 •
The Nivea night cream is one of my favourites: lightweight and fast absorbed. •
Little did I know that this Sukin rose hip oil would fast become one of my favourite products ever. Leaves my skin so soft and nourished. If you haven't tried a rose hip oil, what are you waiting for! •
This Garnier sunscreen is very practical for reapplying during the day and avoiding sun damage.
Have you tried any of these products 💁🏻

Quick update from the cottage! ❄️ So here are the oils I’m currently using on my growing belly every night, in super generous amounts. Though I’m calling it a stretch mark prevention serum (that being the ultimate goal), stretch marks are hugely impacted by your genetics, how you eat/drink, and your lifestyle. I’m trying to help improve my skin’s elasticity and suppleness for the rest of my third trimester as I continue to rapidly put on weight. NO SHAME in stretchies!! As I’ve mentioned before, I love mine from when I grew into a tall, strong woman as a teenager, and no matter your journey (motherhood, weight gain, weight loss, puberty, etc.), they are indicative of growth, change, and a specific point in your life. I am simply choosing to do what I can to aid my skin during this time of change, and to see if it does have an effect☺️!
• Stretch mark serum:
* 1 tbsp Sweet Almond Oil (improves complexion, deeply moisturizes, soothes irritation, relieves dryness & itchiness, nourishes skin)
* 1 tbsp Argan Oil (rich with vitamins A & E, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and linoleum acid, it is an incredible moisturizer)
* 1 tbsp Rose Hip Oil (treats wrinkles, firms skin, fades scars, exfoliates, evens tone due to the vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids within)
* 9 drops Frankincense Essential Oil (strengthens skin and improves its tone & elasticity, reduces the appearance of scars and acne) **I accidentally left out Frankincense in my video because of pregnancy brain. Forgive me!! **
* I combined everything in a bowl, whisked with a fork, and funnelled it into a 250ml glass bottle. * Use in the AM post-shower, and again in the PM. Massage into skin well, as it will stain clothes on contact.
* Have fun moisturizing! 😘

100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
Rosehip oil is super rich in antioxidants, which counteracts the ageing process caused by free radicals in your skin that result from pollutants and from your body’s natural oxidisation processes. It also contains pro-Vitamin A, which is excellent for your skin, as it encourages healthy cell production and growth. .
It contains linoleic fatty acids, which interestingly enough, acne prone skin is deficient in. Studies have shown that apply linoleic acid actually helps reduce the size of clogged pores on your skin. These acids also lighten hyperpigmentation and discoloration/sun spots from sun damage.
In short, it’s great for anti-ageing, fighting acne scars, and lends a hand with reducing acne.
I really like this oil - I was using it for a couple of weeks at first, and it did help soothe my skin. However, I’m worried about its pro-Vitamin A contents. Your skin then converts it into Vitamin A. I know that we’re meant to be super careful about avoiding Vitamin A (since we get so much from Accutane, we’re in danger of Vitamin A poisoning which includes symptoms such as hair loss and can lead to death), but someone told me their derm recommended it to her whilst she was on Accutane! Going to ask my dermatologist next time I see him, but I’m not sure whether I should. It soothes my skin more than Marula (though I like that too). Definitely try it out pre/post Accutane!
