Pregnancy Skincare

Well, if you haven't already seen ... I am pregnant! 23 weeks to be exact and as a little introduction to my journey into motherhood, I am going, to begin with, a Pregnancy Skincare blog post.

If you're a regular follower of mine then you will know I am a BIG fan of homemade face oils and also the Living Sea Therapy products. Now more than ever skincare seems to be extremely important to me and as soon as I knew I was pregnant, which was in fact very early - 2 weeks to be exact, I began covering my stomach, legs and boobs in homemade oils and body butter. I guess becoming aware that my body was about to take on a dramatic transformation made me more conscious that I had to help it out a little along this crazy journey and keep it as hydrated as possible.

I did a little research on the essential oils to avoid (which I will share in another post) and began mixing up a variety of blends. Naturally, there is no way of me guaranteeing I will avoid ending up with stretch marks but to be honest I am not too worried about this. If I do have stretch marks at the end of my pregnancy then so be it. It's completely natural and something that I will learn to love and embrace, as I have done with my current scars and stretch marks.

So, let's get onto the regime! This is something I do every morning and before I go to bed.

Step One

H O M E M A D E   B O D Y   O I L

3 Drops Lavender
3 Drops Neroli
3 Drops Frankincense
2 Table Spoons Sweet Almond Oil

Want to know why I've chosen these oils? Well here is why.

Lavender: Calming, relaxing and has a great ability to tone and heal skin.
Neroli: Revitalising, evens skin tone and can prevent sagging.
Frankincense: Helps tighten skin tissue, prevents skin sagging and wrinkles
Sweet Almond Oil: An amazing oil to use as a carrier for all of the above.


Apply a small amount into the palm of your hands and massage into the areas you see changes. For me, that's my boobs, hips, waist and stomach. Next up apply the Living Sea Therapy Body Butter.

Step Two

Some Key Ingredients


Living Sea Complex® combines the unique geology of the Lizard peninsula with powerful, distilled Cornish Sea Salt Minerals and a trio of wild Cornish Atlantic seaweeds from the Cornish Seaweed company. Read on below to find out a little more about the key components.


The bouquet from this essential oils triplet of frankincense, palmarosa and neroli is a wonderful combination for your mind and skin. Spicy, lemony and floral, these oils help rejuvenate and regenerate your skin by regulating moisture and oil production while aiding concentration for a stressed mind.


Scoop the body butter into your palms and begin massaging into the same areas as you did with the oil. 

As you can see it's nothing too fancy, it's just simply nourishing the skin with natural oils and vitamin and mineral rich body butter. Like I said, I cannot say where this will prevent any stretch marks but I guess time will tell and if it doesn't that's ok! 

Stay tuned for my pregnancy posts coming soon.
