A coworker of mine told me today how much she missed being pregnant, and how it was the best time of her life. She wished she could be pregnant again, and told me to soak it up!
For the most part, these past couple of months have been a walk in the park. A tiring walk in the park, but relatively easy going. My one qualm that has stuck with me since the very beginning has been my pregnancy acne.
Annoying, sometimes painful, and downright gross – these pimples have been quite the pain! Normally I would just let my skin breathe, make sure it was being properly hydrated and cleansed, and wear minimal makeup. However, since my job requires me to look high definition ready – I have to wear a fair amount of makeup each day.
I know that my daily primer, foundation, bronzer, blush, and setting powder are taking a toll on my already sensitive skin. Add pregnancy and rushing/gushing/sometimes overwhelming hormones, and we have ourselves a perfectly perfect pimple concoction.
What’s a girl to do? I drink tons of water, wash my face twice a day, and am doing everything I’m supposed to. In the meantime, I’ll just smile, because deep down I know that that little pimple is there because of my little baby 🙂
Here’s a picture of me with all of my makeup, and attempting to cover the pesky pimples.
What beauty and skincare products did you find useful during pregnancy?
I kept it simple…I used Cetaphil wash and cream. Don't wash your face too much – it could be counter productive as it may prompt your skin to produce more oil…and drink lots of water. So happy for you!! – Nancy 🙂
I've been using the Cetaphil – and you're right Nancy, not over washing has been key!!
