The 40-Week Glow

September 21st, 2013

Since I am now 10 months pregnant (that’s right, you are really pregnant for 10 months!), I figured it would be appropriate to gab about a pregnancy-appropriate beauty regimen.

Let’s be honest, not all of us are blessed with that pregnant glow. While some of us experience flawless smooth skin for the entire 40 weeks, thanks to raging hormones, others of us may get dry, dark patches, blemishes and even full-blown acne. Don’t panic ladies, embrace it!

My best advice is less is more. Stick to a hydrating toner + cleanser + moisturizer regimen. Cleanse away the impurities at night and simply rinse your delicate skin with H20 in the am. As far as makeup is concerned, try a tinted moisturizer and spot coverage for those stubborn spots and blemishes. Add a little bronzer, mascara and gloss or lip balm and you’ll be looking like a flawless mama!

Here are some of my favorite pregnancy-friendly facial beauty products:

 

Hands down, my favorite cleanser. Won't strip the skin and will remove all makeup residue and impurities leaving you with hydrated, fresh skin.

Love this stuff for a hydrated, naturally pink, pucker-ready pout.

For an easy, fresh glow, apply a pea-sized amount of this tinted moisturizer in the am in lieu of a heavier foundation. Remember, less is more!

 

 

For a natural, instant glow, apply some Nars Bronzer in Laguna on cheekbones, across forehead and jawline.
