The pregnancy journey is one that can leave us new mum’s feeling less than pretty. Our body goes through a great deal of changes and the hormonal 9 months can leave our skin a little worse for wear.
Whilst your main focus may now be on your little bundle of joy, it’s important not to forget to take care of yourself. Below 111SKIN highlight the new mum skincare essentials to get through the initial first few weeks:
Bio Cellulose Mask
During pregnancy, you can a little unglamorous whilst dealing with the fatigue, sickness and growing bump. It’s not suprising that many of us can start to slack on the skincare regime. If this wasn’t enough, pregnancy can induce changes to our skin. Instead of a ‘pregnancy glow’, up to 50 % of us can develop a ‘pregnancy mask’ contending with melasma and hyperpigmentation, acne, spider veins and redness.
We recommend using the Bio Cellulose Facial Mask 3x a week. The mask contains Arbutin which will help to brighten patches of pigmentation and can soothe the skin from any angry flare ups. The Centella Asiatica and unique NAC Y2 formula will also help to repair and renew the skin from any damage.
Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel
New born baby territory= lack of sleep and this can show in your eyes, creating bags and puffiness. The Brightening Eye Lift Gel will help to reduce the appearance of dark circles and will soothe the skin to get rid of those bags.
Y Theorem Repair Serum
As a new mum, you may have been left with a few stretch marks and scars. Using the Y Theorem Repair Serum will dramatically reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars. The Repair Serum is based on the original ‘Dramatic Healing Serum’ which was given to Dr Alexandrides’ patients to help them recover post-surgery. After seeing the exponential benefits of the serum, it was redeveloped.
The Y Theorem Repair Serum is packed full of essential ingredients that will help to support cell regeneration and heal the skin. The Amino Acids will improve skin elasticity, therefore improving the appearance of stretch marks. The Aminocarproic Acid will assist in repairing the skin from scarring.
