After my pregnancy with Oliver, my skin went crazy hormonal and I started breaking out a lot more than I used to. As I mentioned in my previous skin care post, transitioning back to work made my skin go through hell and back. All the stress plus hormones were definitely not a good combination.

I was using milder drug store products, then I realized if I wanted products that worked, I had to do more research. These are my holy grail products right now, and I am so glad I found them. I've been using them for about two months and have seen a pretty good improvement on my skin.

At night, I still use the Simple Micellar makeup removing wipes. I feel that if I don't remove my makeup before cleansing my face with any sort of wash, I'm rubbing the makeup around instead of getting rid of it. I then use the Mario Bedescu Acne Facial Cleanser to get rid of any residue left that the wipes did not remove. You need just a little more than a pea sized drop which makes it last forever! I still use my Solo Mio Face Cleanser Brush with the face cleanser. I use a tiny little drop of The Body Shop Tea Tree Nigh Lotion and it smells like spa! You have to get used to the smell but once you do it smells amazing. I do this three to four times a week and the other days I cleanse with a milder cleanser and use jojoba oil as my night moisturizer.

During the week, I wash my face in the shower and exfoliate a couple of times a week using this St. Ives scrub that I have been using for years and love. Once out of the shower, I apply a pea sized amount of The Body Shop Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion to my face. It seriously keeps my skin matte all day with a hint of a glow! This is also drying and when using it, I add a bit of my regular moisturizer and it still works great. I alternate and a couple of days I use my moisturizer only.

Since seeking to go natural with a lot of products we use at home, I wanted a good toner without all the chemicals. I found a use for my ACV by mixing one cup of water with one tablespoon of the ACV. I used a glass spray bottle to keep some in my bathroom and I spray it on a cotton ball and use it on my face a couple of times a week after cleansing at night.

All of these changes have helped my skin tremendously! Also, these are a bit more expensive than drug store products but they still won't break your bank! I want to try more of these two brands. Do you have any favorites?

Have an amazing weekend and have a happy Mother's Day!
