February for me was all about making my tan last longer and give extra hydration to my skin! I was lucky to have the opportunity to visit Dubai in January and spent most of the time outside under the sun! It was just what I needed to break the canadian winter! But since my face skin was exposed more than usual to the sun (even if I applied sunscreen), I could feel that it needed extra hydration to prevent any wrinkles!
I gave another try to the Biossance Squalane Vitamine C+Rose oil. The first time I tried it, I felt like it wasn’t appropriate for my skin, but this time it worked wonders as my skin was dry because of the sun. I used it with their Squalane+Probiotic Gel moisturizer as it’s made so it can be absorbed even with their oil. My skin started to feel soft again within a week! Another product that I integrated in my skin regimen is the Squalane + phyto-retinol serum! One of the down sides of exposing our skin to the sun is the wrinkles! So, I started using this newbie from Biossance which is made to reduce fine lines & wrinkles and to improve your skin firmness! I don’t have wrinkles but I wanted to prevent them and I do feel like my skin is more firm! This serum acts like retinol but without containing retinol and without irritating your face, which it’s also the perfect alternative for moms-to-be! If you don’t know if you should or not use retinol during your pregnancy, read this post!
My second goal for my skin was to keep my tan! I feel like I look more alive & healthy when I’m tanned, so I wanted to make it last longer! I started applying every week the Invisible Tan by Eco Tan . I love the fact that you can apply it all over your body and your face as well! I usually apply it before going to bed (it’s the last step of my night skincare routine) and when I wake up my tan is on point! This tanning lotion is totally safe for pregnant mama’s as it’s made with organic and natural ingredients! Love, Love, Love!
