Skin After Pregnancy

This is sponsored content BlogHer and Olay.

I'm pretty sure I was born with freckles. For someone that is completely dark headed and fairly dark skinned, it seems a bit rare that my body would be covered in freckles, but it is.

Six months ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. At the end of my trimester of pregnancy, I noticed the freckles on my skin getting a bit darker. Well, as the pregnancy continued, I noticed darker and darker freckles.

Upon delivery, we spent twelve long days in the hospital with our sweet baby, who is now angel. I feel like my freckles continued to get darker and my skin became almost as stressed as I was. I had always been good about wearing moisturizer and sunscreen, but I had far more important things to be concerned with.

After twelve days in the hospital, my skin hit the sun, and guess what...the freckles appeared to get even darker! I determined the majority of the darkening was not due to the sun, but due to hormones. My skin needed help. I needed to get back in to a routine. I needed to wash my make up off at the end of every day. I needed to moisturize. I was already looking pretty down and stressed as it was, the least I could do was make my skin look a bit presentable.

I began a search to adjust to my new, hormonal skin, accordingly. I tried a few things, and so far, I've stuck with Olay's New Total Effects Cooling Hydration.

The good news is, with makeup, the freckles aren't too visible. However, sometimes when I don't wear much, they are definitely apparent. Had the flash not been on, you would see many more than you do...

I have problem skin, and as I am aging, it does seem to be improving, but I have been terrible about a skin care routine. I need to get one, before it's too late, and I state to look older than I am.

I currently wash in the morning, and moisturize after that. I do take my makeup off at night, but don't get much farther than that.

Rachel said...

I wash and moisturize both morning and night! rachel.elizabeth.gray@gmail.com

Heather said...

I wash every morning in the shower with a mild face cleanser, apply aoisturizer with spf, and wash at night if I have worn makeup.

Karissa said...

I'm really bad with my skin care routine. I wash and moisturize every morning and very rarely wash at night. But that's only because I don't wear make-up so that makes it a little ok.

Mrs. Dirnberger said...

I am horrible about taking good care of my face. I only wash it in the morning that means I SLEEP in my make up....I know i know!
But I do use olay lotion to mosturize in the winter time.

Huddyma said...

I wash only in the am, while in the shower. Is that terrible? I use a mild cleanser and then moisturize when I get out of the shower. I really should wash my face at night. Maybe that will be my new year's resolution!

Kate said...

I wash morning and night and moisturize in the morning. I, too, have an angel who was born in June and since then, thankfully, my skin hasn't been to bad. It wasn't so great during my pregnancy, but after my son was born, thankfully, that's one of the few things that has gone right for me. kateadeye at yahoo dot com

I wash my face in the morning and I *try* to wash my face (and the makeup off) before bed... But sometimes that just does not happen! I recently purchased the Clarisonic Mia and have been using that in the mornings, I'd probably get more benefit from using it at night though!

Nikki G said...

In the morning I use St. Ives apricot scrub for sensitive skin. I moisturize with Oil of Olay w/ spf. In the evening I use a thick cream wash (I have to use a cream type wash in the winter since my skin gets so dry) and moisturize with an extra thick moisturizer to sleep in.

Mrs. Potts said...

I have found that keeping my routine as simple as possible has truly helped me keep my skin happy.

I remove my makeup & wash my face at night. Once dry, I apply an eye cream & evening moisturizer.

In the morning I splash with ice cold water to wake up. In the shower I don't necessarily wash, but rinse my face. Once dry, eye cream & moisturizer.

I've found that doing this really helps me keep from getting super dried out.

Wash at night (when I remember) and moisturize (with SPF!) in the morning.

Lena Phillips said...

I also have a gazillion freckles! My grandna used to say that each time the sun kissed me, a freckle would form. :) the sun really loved me!

I wash and moisturize at night and also moisturize in the morning. I live in Utah where it is dry! I need my moisturizers!

Ashley said...

I have dry skin, and I use Purpose twice a day, by Johnson and Johnson, my dermo suggested it almost 10 yrs ago, and I still use it. I also started using this Aveno scrub once a day, just gives me a freshness feeling. I also use an olay moisturizer once a day.

My skin is awful after pregnancy! It has really dried out this winter as well. I just started using Mary Kay products in the morning, but I still use my Oil of Olay at night.

I have noticed that I get breakouts a lot more now than I did before I was pregnant(but I really can't complain because I have fairly clear skin), but I don't have the time to do anything for my skin besides wash it and moisturize...if I'm lucky :) I wash my face in the shower in the morning with Neutrogena daily cleansing scrub, and then moisturize with Neutrogena too.

I have the EXACT same freckle issue and I have two "sunspots" on my cheeks that turned almost black with pregnancy... and I too lost my routine.

I'm not so great about my routine. I think I go through it about three times a week. I definitely need to step it up in the anti-aging area.

I never had problem skin, until my 20s. Now at 36, my face looks worse than ever! Having had 2 miscarriages this year, my skin doesn't know what to do with all the hormone changes:(. Right now, I am alternating between Belli acne wash and sunscreen in the morning and obagi wash at night.

Every Day That Follows said...

My skin began to change in my mid 40's and now, well, at 51, it's no longer the porcelin skin of my youth, that's for sure! I read advice once from a woman with beautiful skin in her 70's who said that the best thing for your skin is it's own natural moisture. So, I don't wash my face with soap anymore in the morning... just water followed by a clinique 3 step product to wipe away any dead skin cells. Then I moisturize with Oil of Olay moisturizer before I put on my makeup. It is hands down the best moisturizer and I've tried lots of expensive ones! My makeup is Bare Minerals and with Chanel eye pencil and lipstick. At night I take off my makeup with Oil of Olay facewash before going to bed... that's it. Easy, inexpensive and it works! (Sounds like a commercial but it REALLY is my routine!!!)

Everyday I brush and floss my teeth and use mouthwash, (true story) I wash my face with Neutrogena every morning, then I apply Aveeno moisturizer, and a foundation Primer, then foundation and concealer, powder, eyeliner, mascara, blush, and lipgloss. Phew! I guess you could say I’m not a natural beauty!

I wash my face every morning in the shower and use Clinique eye cream and moisturize with the clinique yellow lotion every morning. I usually don't wash my face at night... :-/

I wash my face at night and use a nighttime moisturizer. In the morning, I use a moisturizer that has sunscreen in it.

I wash my face daily with warm water (no soap) and moisturize (ok, almost all the time). I also try to remember sunscreen when I think I'm going to be outside for more than a few minutes.

I use a mild exfloliating scrub every night and mositurize both am and pm. As oily as my face gets in some areas, it dries out so bad overall.

I have awful skin, so everyday I use wash my face, use copious amounts of salicylic acid on my problem areas, and cross my fingers that I don't break out.

Stephanie said...

no beauty routine this very moment except moisturize all I can. Fighting cancer, just had treatment last week and in isolation so obviously having a rough one away from hubby and the kids right now.

My only routine (if you can call it that) is that every morning I moisturize with original Oil of Olay. Sad, but true.

Shauna said...

Honestly, I'm HORRIBLE at washing my face. It sounds gross, but I only ever wash my face when in the shower and I use water only. But you know what? It works. After trying face wash after face wash, my skin was so irritated and dry, so I just started using water only. I moisturize in the morning (using Mario Badescu oil-free SPF 40 moisturizer, this stuff is LIFE CHANGING. Seriously, AMAZING!) and at night I use night cream (Mario Badescu seaweed night cream, same with this stuff, amazing!). I also use the Mario Badescu drying powder if I ever see any signs of a pimple, and if I catch it in time it is completely gone the next day. I promise I'm not getting paid to say any of this, I just heard about him through another blogger (with amazing skin!) and went crazy and bought a whole bunch of stuff. I honestly get so many compliments on my skin and I owe it all to this stuff!

I have a young baby and that’s really thrown off my routines. I daily brush my teeth for sure! Most days I also do something with my hair and try to slap on some makeup. On a good day I straighten my hair and do a full makeup routine but ya know it just doesn’t always happen! :) Tinted moisturizer is new to my routine and really helps me feel more put together.

Joanna said...

I have super dry skin, so I totally need help with this! I try to moisturize with Clinique, but then I get zits, go figure!?!

Ahh. I am horrible at a skin care routine. I usually just wash my face at night. I don't use any products other than make-up I put on in the morning. Need to start working on that!

Jennifer said...

I've noticed my skin gets really dry during the winter months. I have a few brown spots and a redish tent that I would LOVE to disappear...and I'm only 29. Need to do a better job taking care of my skin.

Nothing much lately has changed in my routine. Everyday I shave, shower, and tweeze my brow. When the planets are aligned I might take a soothing bath with some lavender salts! I use various facial cleanser sometimes at night sometimes morning.

I'm horrible about skin care! I was my face in the shower...and that's it! Yikes! I do use lotion before applying makeup, though.

I do not have a routine I moisturize as often as possible and that's it

Megan said...

I can't wash my face due to really really sensitive skin. (and believe me, I've tried everything that anyone promises will work)

I do, however, moisturize every day. Either morning OR night, doesn't matter. :)

Kelly said...

Sadly, I don't have a washing or moisturizing routine. I try to wash at night, but usually forget or pass on it altogether. If I moisturize, my skin tends to get oily, so I usually avoid it. I try to do a nice deep-cleaning face mask once a week.

i don't have a routine when it comes to washing my face. i wash it in the shower, and whenever it occurs to me I may moisturize or occasionally do some form of mask.

Morgan said...

I was in the morning and moisturize with spf 25. I was at night and moisturize with a night cream. Pretty basic stuff.

OK, so I'm flaky. I try to remember to do both morning and night, but tend to wash in the morning most often and moisturize at night. Some of that may have to do with the moisturizer being on my bed-stand so I often recall it after I get into bed.

Melissa said...

i wash at night only and just use dove soap. i think i should start moisterizing bc my skin seems to be getting more dry.

angie lilly said...

I don't wear makeup, so its all about washing away oil/dirt/dead skin with a good organic vegan cleanser and then following that up with an organic vegan face lotion with SPF of at least 15. Final touch = organic vegan lip balm!
