I have never – ever- ever had skin issues in my life. This is all new for me and instead of going into panic mode, I am trying to put myself into a mode of some kind of process.
My typical routine- wash face with warm water- if makeup applied I would use Neutrogena make up wipes which are clearly made by some genius who is sitting back getting mad coins from me and other make up fanatics!! And I have used Oil of Olay lotion on my face since grammar school. Every once in a while (when I would think about it) I would use my St. Ives Apricot Scrub while in the shower and my Witch Hazel as a toner.
So now that there is a small human on the way, I have NO pregnancy glow, I use as minimal makeup as possible and I have been using cocoa butter for the dark spots.
The new routine is- use St. Ives Apricot Scrub 3-4 times a week, use Witch Hazel EVERY SINGLE DAY and stop picking. I think that is my number one issue- picking- I pick at everything my nails, random split ends, face, leg hair, my husband. This poor little baby is going to really be tired of me after the first week with my microscopic vision.
Everyone tells me it is a girl since I am breaking out so much—we shall see.
Anyone else have these preggo issues? Any tips?
Still trying to be fab LOL xoxo
Update–I gave in and invested in the Tea Tree Oil kit from The Body Shop. I will do a review in another post.
