Morning Pregnancy Skin Care Routine

Last February, I shared my morning and nighttime skin care routines.  While they worked for me at the time, I’ve had to make a few adjustments since becoming pregnant with my second baby.

For starters, some of the products that I was using weren’t safe to use during pregnancy.  For another thing, my skin literally freaked out during this pregnancy.  We’re talking dryness, breakouts, dullness…anything but loveliness.  I desperately (not to be over- dramatic or anything) needed to find a new routine that would combat all of those issues.

Maybe my hormones are more balanced now or maybe I’ve found my miracle regime, but whatever the case, my skin is looking much better these days.

Whether you’re expecting or not, these are some really great products, so I hope that you find some here that work for you too!


Pregnancy skin care routine for the day time

1. Belli Anti Blemish Face Wash

This is hands down the best face wash that I’ve ever used.  Truly the rock star out of everything else I’m going to mention.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

I dilute it with water and apply with a cotton pad as a replacement for toner.

3. Forces of Nature Acne Pimple Control

I add a few drops of water to a cotton pad, a couple drops of this pimple control product, and rub it gently all over my face.

4. Sibu Nourishing Facial Cream

This has been a staple in my routine for awhile, and I just love it.  It’s currently 40% on Sibu’s website too!

5. Josie Maran Argan Oil

My skin tends to be on the dry side, especially during this time of the year, so I require extra moisture.  A few drops of this on top of my Sibu cream, and I’m well moisturized all day long.


I’m not using a serum at the moment, but that’s only because I’m out of the one that I like by Sibu.

I do have to mention that I’ve significantly increased my water intake, and I think that’s contributed to the improvement in my complexion.  It has yet to be determined if the oil pulling will also make a difference, but I’ll definitely keep you updated.

I plan to share my nightly routine next week, and that one is a bit lengthier.  In fact, you might think I’m a little insane after you see all of the products that I use!

What are your morning skin care routine staples?





  1. Great list of products! So funny you mentioned the apple cider vinegar as toner thing as I’ve been doing that lately as well and my skin has never looked better.

    I love #5 as well!
