looking your best while pregnant
While you are pregnant, it is common to feel lethargic and tired. You may even feel unattractive due to the nausea, weight gain and body shape change. But the truth is, most pregnant women have a special glow around them that makes them look healthy.
During this time, your hair and nails grow than ever before and your skin takes on amazing softness and smoothness. Common skin problems during this time include pimples, red marks and mask of pregnancy (dark blotches on the skin of the face). These skin changes usually disappear with the birth of the baby. Recommendations: keep your skin clean and use simple moisturizer. Avoid using products containing hydroquinone, tretinoin (Retin-a) and steroids.
Stretch marks
These are wavy stripes appearing on the abdomen, buttocks, breasts and thighs. They are caused by rapid weight gain and appear when the skin is over stretched and the fibers in the deep layers tear.
Once they appear, they are permanent, but they do become less noticeable with time and with proper management using skin-restoring oils. Recommended products: Soft and natural oil, Bio oil, Cocoa butter, Sweet almond oil. Rub your breasts and abdomen daily with any of these.
Hair care
Hair grows well during pregnancy. It is best left natural without chemicals. Plaiting natural lines is effective to help maximize the growth and thickening. Use extra virgin coconut oil for the best results. Hair looks great when blow-dried and flat ironed.
