Shelfie: How Paris Mitchell Temple Makes Her Skin Glow After Pregnancy
How Paris Mitchell Makes Her Skin Glow After Pregnancy
Designer Paris Mitchell Temple is the co-founder of the brand Paris Georgia, which recently dressed Lady Gaga.
“I feel like I’m coming out of a shortage of products.
When I was pregnant I was repelled by smells and while breastfeeding I was more sensitive to what I was using on my skin. It feels good to be back to my normal product hoarding self.
Especially after the sleep deprivation that comes with becoming a new mother, my skin needs all the glow it can get.

I like to support New Zealand beauty as much as possible, we have an amazing pool of products here. During my pregnancy and breastfeeding, these were the brands I trusted the most.
I’ve slowly reintroduced other brands into my skincare regimen – like this selection of homegrown products that I use daily.
Without [ceuticals] Superdose Luminosity Mask, $65
New Zealand made magic! I have always trusted and loved [Sans founder] Lucy’s products. I use this mask for my vitamin C injection; it makes my complexion brighter and smoother.
Maryse treating balm, $32
I have one in almost every room in my house and definitely in every purse. I use this balm mostly on my lips but also on my lids and brows – it gives them a bit of shape when I’m on the go.
Synergy ÜberZinc, $159
The product I wish I had worn more as a teenager – sunscreen. Synergie’s ÜberZinc only has SPF 15 but I apply it several times a day in the summer. The soft texture is never heavy and I love that it also works as a moisturizer. Available at Clinic 42.
Mara Retinol Face Oil, $269
After being pregnant and breastfeeding, I was very excited to put retinol back into my routine. My friends at [local beauty store] Ines put me on this brand because it is considered a clean beauty and was a gentle way to restore retinol to my skin.
Emma Lewisham Supernatural 72 Hour Cream, $141
My go-to moisturizer. So nourishing and hydrating, I love it especially before bed. It’s addicting! And made in New Zealand.
Truncate Scar Concentrate, $160
The Trunque range is also made in New Zealand and focuses solely on the body. The scar concentrate is my go-to, it has been amazing at removing any lingering blemishes.
