I have to admit that my regular skincare routine mostly focused on facial skincare. I am pretty lazy and low-maintenance, so I am a bit embarrassed to say that I neglected body care for so long! I am lucky that I don't have major skin issues; my face is dry, with oily eyelids, and my body is very dry and prone to flaking during the winter months. When I am lazy I usually skip body cream but pregnancy has changed my skin in so many ways, and I realized that I have to take better care of it to nourish it from within and on the outside! Read on to see what I am using as part of my pregnancy skincare routine.
Goji berry, also known as Lycium barbarum, has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese cuisine for well over 2000 years. Goji or as we say in Chinese “枸杞” has been documented for its impressive anti-aging and nourishment properties as early as 500 C.E. This ingredient has been very popular in the health and wellness zeitgeist as of late; healthy recipes, supplements and skincare have been bombarded with love for this hardworking berry. We use goji berry extract in our beloved Goji & Rose Balm—our soft and velvety formula is supercharged with nourishing and natural ingredients for your skin!
