    I agree with keiko & mango comments.During my pregnancy, I continued to follow a good skin care regimen such as a gentle cleanser, a hydrating moisturizer and a good sunscreen.

    Life was as normal when i was preggie
    I was one of the lucky few who did not have any morning sickness, so it was makeup as usual for me
    In fact, i took care of my skin better then because of pregnancy hormones.

    It's after I've given birth that i've pared down on wearing makeup because i had to dress up fast, feed the baby, pack the bags, change his diapers before going out. So it's base makeup, blusher, brows and gloss in double quick time!

    Of course! Life goes on during pregnancy, no? We still need to take care of ourselves and how we look like usual right? When I was preggie I had more time (compared to after the baby comes out LOL!) to do these thing. I remember religiously exfoliating all over, masking, moisturising and whatnot hehe.

    Make Up during Pregnancy

    hi, just wondering if you'll continue to put on make up when you're expecting ? If so, do you put on the full lot or just par it down to certain basic (eg to hide red nose) ?

    It could also help if you changed your pillow cases frequently. My problem was partly due to that, was very lazy during the last month of pregnancy so was lax about changing pillow cases. I bet that contributed alot to my breakouts. Don't worry dear you will have beautiful skin again.

    Hey Happybean,

    I had the same problem. Initially I already had problem skin but had in under control. But with my pregnancy I had pimples all over my forehead. Throughout my pregnancy I had breakouts. When I finally controlled the pimples on my forehead... at the 8 month they started appearing on my cheeks and down my neck. It was very bad (huge red painful ones). I used my normal skincare products except I got pimple cream. Didn't matter what I put, it came back again. My gynae says that its due to hormones. I didn't apply any make up at all unless it was to go our somewhere special. Two weeks after delivery it became better, the pimple cream and stuff worked. Everything has dried up but now I'm felt with horrible acne scars. <sigh> So what I do now is get stuff that will hopefully heal up the scars and prevent more breakouts. It seems to be working. I'm using my normal Nuskin Clear Action and just recently bought Celltrex Ultra from a fellow cotter . I read reviews from MUA and from threads here that it promotes healing.

    When I was pregnant I always joked that the "glow" of pregnancy came from all the excess sebum oozing out from my skin.

    I know how you feel though, I looked at myself in the mirror and I felt sad. Not only did I lose my figure and I felt that I looked ugly. Didn't help that I felt nauseous and grumpy most of the time. I am lucky to have my hubby who kept reassuring me.

    Cool Mel

    Glad you like your new look. Hee... I'm sure your birthing pictures will be nice nice

    Me too love to look presentable and clean after birthing. My hubby helped me wash my hair in the hospital the next day. I think most people would have freaked out! Unclean hair is a mood dampener.

    Davis,
    I survived the colouring job except I wouldn't recommend it either. I forgot the part where baby loves punching the bladder... there was no way to make a loo trip with head covered in foil.

    Tanya,
    ooo- the Fresh New afterbirth look certainly is an enticing prospect. But I can't wait out the 2wks minimum after delivery to have my hair done, so I did it today. Can always do it AGAIN after delivery (maybe rebond for the heck of it)! I think my bladder would be able to withstand the 4hrs rebonding time post-delivery (oh man, luckily I didn't do rebonding today)...

    Ariel,
    but I'm loving my hair now. Feeling much better!

    my aunt always apply J&J baby lotions on her babies after bathing and boys being boys, they tend to stuff their fingers in their mouth, or lick ice creams from their arms...never heard her mentioning about the babies having any complications...that's why i was thinking it should be harmless even if babies accidentally "eats" the lotion...

    but anyway, if too harsh then better not use as hand moisturizer then

    Why not you apply Johnson & Johnson's moisturizers for babies? Since the products are meant for babies, I guess it should be really safe.
    Er...I dont use J & J products on my baby, way too harsh imo. My concern is that if my hands are coated with lotion, baby will accidentally 'eat' some when I bf, and I am currently nursing around the clock.

    Hi mango, not a mummy yet or experience at that aspect. But here's my suggestion, maybe you'd like to do hand-mask once a week to salvage the dryness and roughness? Since you BF, there isnt much time to do the mask everyday, so I guess once a week should do just fine? Do consider.

    Davis, like what Tanya says, I cant use a hand cream cause I'm BF and I touch my breasts and baby's face/skin alot. I wouldnt want her to accidentally eat some of it off my hands or have the fragrance/ingredients irritate her skin if I accidentally 'transfer' some to her.

    Tanya, good idea! Think I'll go and hunt next weekend.
