Good morning my loves! Hope you’re off to a great week! I woke up this morning and it really hit me… I only have about 8 weeks left until this little one arrives! I’m beyond thankful that my first and second trimesters went smoothly, but now being in my third trimester, I’m experiencing a lot of difficult physical changes. Getting a full night’s rest has been a huge challenge for me (my belly is getting large and it’s hard to find a comfortable position to sleep in, plus I have to pee like 12 times a night!) and I’m definitely feeling more fatigued because of it. Truth is, I probably won’t be getting a lot more sleep once she arrives either…And between house-hunting, planning my baby-shower, getting our nursery ready and keeping up with our busy work schedule..the fatigue is definitely showing up in my skin. I’ve been noticing puffiness around my eye area and dullness all around. I think we can all agree that especially during times like these, it’s comforting to use products from brands that we know and trust to use on a daily basis. For me, that’s Origins. I love knowing that anything I use from them contains all natural ingredients, and will show real results within a few short weeks.
I’m all about preventative skincare and prolonging my youthful skin as naturally as possible!! With all of the recent changes I mentioned, I really wanted to jumpstart a more aggressive skincare routine and take preventative measures before I noticed signs of fatigue getting any worse! I started using Origins’ Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum on a daily basis two weeks ago and have been so impressed with the results so far! The formula is packed with 20 targeted anti-aging plant extracts including a special ingredient called “Anogeissus,” which plays a key role in tightening your skin and getting that bounce back so your skin can look better than ever ;). One of the biggest concerns that comes along with lack of sleep is loss of firmness and radiance in your skin. Anogeissus is referred to as a “natural healer” ingredient and helps stimulate the natural production of fibrillin, the protein that restores your skin back to its original state. Bamboo and pea extract are also amazing anti-aging properties and work together to plump upper skin layers, reduce wrinkles, and eliminate dullness.
After cleansing my skin, I apply my toner to ensure there’s no excess make-up left, then I apply 2-3 pumps of Origins’ Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum to my skin and let it penetrate for a few minutes before applying my moisturizer. I use it twice a day, once in the morning after washing my face, and once at night before bed. What I love about this serum is that the formula is very lightweight and refreshing so it works well under makeup which is always an added bonus! Just 2 weeks after using this high-performance serum on a daily basis, my skin is already feeling more hydrated, radiant, and youthful. I also appreciate that the formula has no artificial scents which I’ve been very sensitive to during my pregnancy, so I really enjoy putting it on!
For those of you who read my blog on a regular basis, you know I’ve been getting into a cleaner beauty routine ever since I found out I was pregnant. No surprise, finding products that are natural and safe in this day and age is far from easy. Origins products are formulated with natural, organic ingredients and most importantly free of parabens, paraffin, and other harmful chemicals that are found in the beauty market today. Even after having the baby, I plan on breastfeeding for a long time, so it’s really important for me to continue leading a healthy lifestyle, using natural products on my skin and body, and eating healthy, vitamin rich foods; because whatever I am ingesting is what my baby is too.
I can’t stress enough just how important it is to have a great serum at the forefront of your daily skincare routine to help address those underlying skin issues that moisturizers just can’t fix alone. With less than 2 months to go in my pregnancy, I’m on a mission to get my skin back to its plump, youthful state so that when my little girl gets here she can meet her mama looking happy and glowy! I can’t wait to see how my skin will feel after a few more weeks of using this Power Serum!
A special thanks to Origins for partnering with me on this post.
