My Recent Skin Saviours!

I have always struggled with oily but dehydrated, acne prone, sensitive skin. Finding products that suit all 4 skin types at once is extremely difficult. Since becoming pregnant, my skin has got even more sensitive and there's 3 products i have been reaching for to save it. 

I have already done a review on the Avene Cleanser, but i had to mention it again. I just love it that much! Perfect for all my skin types mentioned above.

The next product is The Body Shop's Aloe Calming Toner. I'm not usually one for toners however this has been such a star when i'm hot! I keep it in the fridge so it's nice and cool and refreshing. I swipe it over my face to freshen up on non make-up days, use it as a toner at night and also use it to soothe my eyes when my hayfever kicks in! It really is soothing and gentle and helps any irritations i have with my skin.

Just like the Aloe Toner, this Aloe Vera Gel soothes and heals any redness or sensitivity  and acts as my moisturiser. I apply before bed on freshly cleaned skin and wake up with reduced redness and smoother skin. I've also noticed this has helped heal/smooth any scarring/blemishes from my acne and breakouts. I also love the fact its a gel, my skin feels nourished and supple in the morning but not greasy and overloaded.

By using this skincare routine throughout my pregnancy, i have an overall better complexion and my skin is less likely to flare up and get irritated. I will definitely continue to use this even after pregnancy if it is still doing wonders like this for my skin!

What are your skin saviour products? Did pregnancy change your skin?
