Emma Roberts is not only an actress and an executive producer, but she’s also a newer mom. Her son Rhodes is two years old, and some of the side effects of pregnancy are still with her. Like many mothers, Roberts’ pregnancy melasma was an unwanted intruder during the nine months of carrying her son. Luckily, time and an exfoliating cleanser have helped clear it up.
While on Vogue’s “Beauty Secrets,” Roberts revealed that once a week, she uses Dr. Barbara Sturm Enzyme Cleanser ($75). The product is a unique powder that you add water to and then exfoliate the skin with. “I think over long-term use, it’s been helping a little bit with my post-pregnancy melasma,” Roberts says of the cleanser.
Roberts shares that she had dark spots on her cheeks and forehead while she was pregnant. “I remember being like, ‘is this ever going to go away?’ and it did after I had the baby, but then I also definitely had to up my exfoliating routine and just be more conscious of the products I was using for hyperpigmentation,” says Roberts.
Now that she’s a working mother, Roberts doesn’t have as much time for a 12-step skin-care routine, but she makes sure to squeeze it in where she can. “Giving myself that little extra is not every day anymore since I have a two-year-old,” says Roberts. “Usually when I’m doing this, it’s after I’ve put Rhodes to bed and I’ve taken a bath, I’ve lit some candles, and I’m doing the full luxurious face routine.”
