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!

  1. 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?
    Thanks!

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. Gorgeous! Do you have any recommendations for someone on a budget? My husband and I are both still in school, but I want to give my face the best, but just for less? Heading over to Sephora to browse. Thanks!

  5. Hello Rachel! I love the carpet in your room. What type is it? Berber?
    We are thinking of taking out our older carpet and putting in tile or hardwoods in our bedroom, but cold on feet!!! I love the look of your beige carpeting.
