While l was pregnant (as cliche as it sounds) I really started to feel like I had the “pregnancy glow.” I noticed my skin was the best it had ever been and I was worried that it might come to an end once my pregnancy was over. Four months later, I still feel like my skin is glowing and it’s thanks to a few tricks I’ve been using lately:

My daily morning routine starts with taking my prenatal vitamin (you don’t have to be pregnant to take these!!) I noticed once I started taking them my hair, nails and skin were all positively affected! I had a major oatmeal craving during my pregnancy and post pregnancy so I have it for breakfast almost every morning (oatmeal is supposed to be amazing for your skin). I also try to drink half my body weight (in ounces) of water each day. I always notice such a difference in my skin when I’m drinking the correct amount of water to stay hydrated and cleansed. Shortly after I had Isla I started using the Roloxin Lift to keep my skin smooth and firm (totally helped with dark circles too). I wasn’t getting much sleep the first couple of months so this totally helped to keep my skin looking firm and refreshed. Maybe.

If you don’t know much about the Roloxin Lift Face Mast here’s a little more background…

The Roloxin Lift is an instant wrinkle-smoothing mask that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and pores and leaves my skin feeling more smooth and firm than ever! I love that it’s super easy to use and doesn’t take vey long. The packages are pre-measured so all you have to do is squeeze it out and rub evenly on to your face! I leave it on for about 10 minutes and can instantly tell that my skin is refreshed and brighter than before. It lasts the entire day and you can use it as often as you like (I use it 2 times per week).

I would love hear some of the tricks you use to keep your skin glowing!

  9. Great tips, Rachel! I never thought about taking prenatal vitamins before, but it totally makes sense. I agree with you on the water too, I feel so sick when I don’t drink enough. Have a great day!

  21. I definitely have to give this product a try! I’m always trying to keep my skin hydrated and I notice a difference when I drink lots of water, too. Sounds like this mask may be a welcome addition to my skincare routine.

  22. Andrea says:

    Love this post. I find it really motivating to hear and see what works for others related to health and beauty. What is your normal lunch, dinner, and snack routine. Could you give me an idea of your daily diet and workout routine?

  23. Monika says:

    I knew you didn’t have to be pregnant to take prenatal vitamins but I never knew they had such an impact on your skin and nails. Good tip! I drink a lot of water too by the way and it keeps my diet on track and my body ready to go.

  27. Christianne says:

    This is a nice post. I have been drinking lemon water for 2years now.

  28. Jamie says:

    Water is a must for glowing skin! I live in the desert, so it’s important to keep hydrated. These are great tips, thanks for sharing!


  29. Jen says:

    Love your room! It is so cute. x

  30. My skin will look great one week and then the next week it can break out so much. Water is definitely important for keeping good skin though! I didn’t know oatmeal was a good skin food – I’ll have to start eating it more often!

    Thank you for these great tips!! I noticed that you kept your pregnancy glow even when Isla was undoubtedly waking up frequently during the night. You truly look so happy! The inner glow always reflects on the outside, too. I completely agree about the amount of water that is needed. I’m going to start eating oatmeal in the mornings again. I love hearing about new skincare products and I think I need to add this to my regimen. My favorite way to keep my skin glowing is to use a gentle exfoliator every morning. It gets rid of any dead skin cells and allows my skincare products to be absorbed more effectively. Beautiful pictures in this post, Rach!

  32. Jillian says:

    I agree that by drinking lots of water, and staying hydrated my skin always looks its best. I’ll have to try prenatal vitamins, I’d love to get my nails and hair stronger!
    xo, Jill

  33. Sofia says:

  34. I love that robe! And that oatmeal looks yummy!

    Your skin always looks flawless. I like that your make-up looks minimal.

  36. Jalisa says:

    Rach, I’ve said many times on here how amazing your hair and skin look and now I understand why! I’ve been told that pregnancy vitamins do help a lot and can be taken without being pregnant, so I think I might give them a try when I’m finished with my bottle of vitamins. It’s funny because as I was reading this post, I was drinking my glass of water and chugged it more when I got to the part when you mentioned it, lol! I too drink my weight in oz everyday, it does do wonders for your skin!

    I’ll have to check out the Roloxing Lift, sounds like a great product and you do have a reputation with using great products, so your suggestions are always valued to me :)

    Hoping you have an awesome Monday and week up ahead!



  37. Rachel says:

    I am all about drinking a good amount of water and exfoliating. Both are super important. You look gorgeous!

  39. Paige says:

    I’m definitely going to have to add oatmeal and lemon water water to my regimen so I can get a glow like yours!


  40. Nina says:

  41. Pauline S says:

    You look stunning! I’ll try to follow your advice but I find it so hard to drink so much water…


  42. Dominique says:

    I agree with you, pregnancy glow is awesome! I loved my face while pregnant. I had to change up my routine a bit after pregnancy. Maybe I’ll try a few of these pointers, thanks for sharing.
