Without relying on covering up my skin, I've focused on maintaining healthy skin. My normal face washing routine involved a cheap salicylic acid face wash, with coconut oil for moisture afterwards. It's worked with my acne prone skin, and I hate changing something that works... until I heard that salicylic acid isn't considered safe during pregnancy. Yikes!
What I thought was basic and healthy turned out to be filled with harsher chemicals than I had considered!
A few months back, I was introduced to a new brand called Everclen. Their products are made without harsh chemicals, allergens, or fragrances, so it's perfect for sensitive skin and pregnant mamas. I started by sampling their face cream and I loved how non-greasy and quick drying it was. I added some lavender oil into the lotion for an extra dose of goodness.
Then I checked out Everclens facial toner. I hadn't used a toner since my Proactive days in high school, so I wasn't too sure what to expect. It added a nice amount of moisture, without feeling greasy, and my skin felt smooth and clean.
