Face First

Love Life and Lollipops- Naturopathica

Sitting here, letting my mask sink in, drinking my red raspberry tea, loving the pumpkin pie smell I'm oozing off my face, I realized I haven't posted on my skin care regimen recently.

Now I know I'm far from a beauty blogger, but I've mentioned my pregnancy acne once or twice and it's forced me into paying much more attention to my skin and everything I put on it on a daily basis.

I've always been very careful about my products being natural, organic (whenever possible), and chemical free.  No parabens, sulfates, etc for me and my family!  That said, it's not always easy to find products that are clean AND work really well.  I'm going to do my best to do some posting over the next few weeks on what I'm using and loving now.

This post is all about Naturopathica Spa and products.  I'm a little obsessed.  My skin was a disaster in the first handful of months of this pregnancy.  I was so upset and totally in pain over it.  I decided to visit the Naturopathica spa out on Long Island for a cleansing facial and a new skin care regimen.  Naturopathica is a holistic spa that has developed a line of products which are certified natural and organic made without any harmful synthetics.  Their products feel great on the skin and I'm always confident that they are totally safe for me and my growing baby!

Seeing as I'm a little uneducated in this area, I probed my facialist for tips throughout the facial.  Luckily she was pregnant as well and totally understood where I was coming from!  She taught me about how and when to apply, etc, and recommended some superfabulous products I've since fallen in love with (and freak if I have to go without).

Here's what she suggested and I've been using (with success and comfort) ever since:
