When it comes to being pregnant, us mums know just how much our skin changes. This is the most important time to look after our skin. To keep it hydrated and to stop it from going dry. Just remember, soft, hydrated skin is said to reduce the amount of stretch-marks you might get.
I try to keep to a routine when it comes to my skin. I always keep hydrated as that shows is the skin and then I use products to keep myself glowing. Making sure I wash off make-up on a night, rinse, and cleanse and then moisturise too.
Of course, finding the best products can be easy for one person and hard for others as not everyone has the same skin type. From oily to dry and sensitive and combination up to having skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can all affect the products that you can use on your skin.
I have always had dry, sensitive skin. Many products I cannot use because of this and I try to be careful and stick with brands I know to stop my skin from going blotchy or getting rashes. I had a bit of a trial period of going through a range of skin care products to try and find which ones worked best for me. This was the same with make-up too as that can cause bad skin reactions too.
I have used E45 lotion for years. In fact, ever since I was a child, I remember my mum using it on us and herself and I do the same now with the boys. Especially when they were both newborns. this was because both of the were 2 weeks overdue and this can have bad effects on babies skin causing it to dry out immensely. I remember every night, rubbing E45 into their bodies to hydrate their skin.
I love the fact that they have different products for the various skin types and that they explain what the best uses are for each product. You know that if you are using E45 then you'll be using the best product for your skin.
And now is your chance to win some for yourself. 2 winners will win both the E45 Intense Recovery Lotion & the E45 Moisturising Lotion by just telling me what your skin type is.
