#myMECCAskin: Heidi Moustafa’s Post-Pregnancy Skincare Routine For Face and Body breakouts

SKIN, LET’S FACE IT, IS A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP. SOME DAYS IT’S GREAT—GLOWING AND CLEAR—AND SOME DAYS, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU CARE FOR IT, IT JUST WANTS TO PLAY YOU. WHEN IT COMES TO SKINCARE, EVERYONE HAS THEIR UNIQUE SOLUTIONS: THE INSTANT GRATIFIERS AND THE ONES THAT PLAY HARD TO GET (BUT TURN OUT TRULY WORTHY IN THE END). IN THIS SERIES, #MYMECCASKIN, WE TAP SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE BEAUTY GUYS AND GALS TO TAKE THEIR ALWAYS-FLAWLESS MAKEUP OFF AND REVEAL THEIR SKIN STORY AND THE PRODUCTS THEY USE TO MANAGE THIS CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED SKIN.

That pregnancy glow you hear about? Well for some women, it doesn’t always go that way. Makeup artist and YouTuber Heidi Moustafa always had relatively clear skin but pregnancy caused her to experience breakouts on her face and body—which worsened after the birth of her daughter Madelyn. So, what does a new mum do? Throw up her hair in a mum bun and get on with it: charcoal and exfoliating cleansers (to detoxify and deep clean pores), hydrating masks and facial mists (to fake the pregnancy glow) and an AHA body wash for skincare beyond the face. Press play to hear her story!
