Maybe it's the cold Chicago weather or the mask wearing but my poor face has been through a lot in the last few months.
I will say the mask is wonderful for keeping me warm, but not so much for facial breakouts.
My skin and specifically my face has changed so much over the last 5 years while trying to conceive because of all the fertility drugs and treatments. I now have broken capillaries. Lucky me :(
Yes, this is real life going through fertility treatments and no it's not because I don't wear sunscreen or go to tanning beds. I have worn sunscreen daily since I was 23 years old.
I started reading labels of skin care products including nail polish and makeup more seriously when Sean and I were serious about getting pregnant 7 years ago.
My friend Natalie over at https://www.instagram.com/natalievandykewellness/ and over at her website here https://www.natalievandykewellness.com/ started teaching me about reading labels and understanding how quickly our bodies absorbed skin care products and it absolutely rocked me. I started researching and trying out new skin care products immediately. I did not want what I put on and in my body to affect me or my future growing baby.
Folks, I started small with baby steps. First thing I started swapping out was my deodorant. My favorite by far is the Blue Tansy scented deodorant from Primally Pure If you want to try any of their products I have a code for 10% off. Just message me at CoachinwithKasia@gmail.com and I will be happy to send you a code. I have been using their deodorant for the last 3+ years. All their products are amazing, clean, smell good, and have changed my skin for the better.
If you are looking to slowly swap out one thing at a time as you run out to some clean products then go check out the Instagram Live I did yesterday. I shared all of my favorite all natural and clean skin care products I use on the daily or weekly.
