Hormonal Skin Battles - Peter Thomas Roth Skincare

Whether you're experiencing your own battle with acne congestion due to going off the pill or problematic skin in general, here are a few tried and tested suggestions

Hormonal Skin Battles - Peter Thomas Roth Skincare

When you get pregnant you need to be wary of what skincare ingredients you can safely put on your skin. Your normal routine of highly active ingredients might now be a no-no for the next nine months. Whether you're experiencing your own battle with acne congestion due to going off the pill or problematic skin in general, here are a few tried and tested suggestions:

  

Peter Thomas Roth's Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash sounds like it will be very drying and cause cracked lips and nose but that couldn't be further from the truth. Gentle yet very effective, this oil free acne wash gives a deep cleanse while 2% salicylic acid helps to loosen sebum, clear pores and prevent future breakouts. 

 

I love a great peel but some can strip the skin to harshly which can then lead to other problems. Peter Thomas Roth's Gentle Correction Pads are a favorite of mine (and Allure magazine) as they won 'Best Peel' in their Best of Beauty awards. With a peach bellini scent, regular use of these exfoliating pads will reduce the appearance of fine lines, clear blackheads and refine pores. I like to them once a week!

  

A great night treatment is essential to keep all the good work going while you're getting your beauty sleep. Peter Thomas Roth's Acne Spot and Area Treatment is a maximum strength, yet non-drying topical treatment that works quickly on a single blemish or can be used on larger problematic areas to fight present and future breakouts. You could use it during the day but I don't really like to because it does have a sulfur like smell that can be noticed if you get to close to people. 

 

 

I hope these pimple fighters work for you as well as they worked for me.  Remember, if you're pregnant you should consult your physician prior to selecting new skincare products!
