Pregnant and Beautiful

Are you groaning about being ugly with your growing body? You can look beautiful when you are pregnant. Celebrity moms and models are such excellent examples. Don’t they just glow like beautiful pregnant godesses? You may argue that they have a personal stylist or a professional stylist at their beck and call. Well, we have some tips here to help you look beautiful too on your budget:

Your skin
Hormone levels increase during pregnancy. This causes the production of excess oil which is a blessing for women with dry skin but for those with oily skin, it may lead to more breakouts of acne. Get a good quality skin care system. As far as possible, choose one with natural ingredients. Keep your unborn baby away from as little chemicals as possible. Clean, tone, moisturize and don’t forget to exfoliate once a week. Keep those facial appointments if you have been going to regular sessions.

Most pregnant women find liquid foundation adds to their problem with oily skin. Try using mineral powders and remember to use SPF protection too. You may get irregular pigmentation on your face from the increase in hormones. Use a concealer if you want to hide them.

You may find that your hair does not fall as much and is thicker and heavier than usual. Women with thin hair will find this an added bonus to pregnancy. However, extra oil production can also make your hair greasy and weigh it down. Trim your hair every four to six weeks and ask your stylist for a layered and textured style to get that light and feathery feeling. Use a clarifying shampoo and light conditioner to combat oiliness. If you must color your hair, try to use natural dyes.

You will be delighted to know that your nails are stronger and you can grow them longer while you are expecting. Pamper yourself with a manicure and pedicure. If you are doing it yourself, indulge in pretty polishes and quality hand and foot creams.

Stretch marks
Don’t wait until stetch marks appear in your third trimester. Start working on keeping them away in your first trimester. Cocoa butter is thought to help prevent stretch marks. Invest in a quality brand and massage it on your belly at night.

You don’t have to hide your growing belly under your husband’s T-shirts and sweats. You can get beautiful and stylish maternity clothes at reasonable prices. Flat shoes come in very pretty styles too these days. Whatever it is, remember not to compromise on comfort. It is not possible to look good in something that you are not comfortable in.

Glow from within
Eat a well-balanced diet. Include lots of vegetables and fresh fruits. Drink lots and lots of water.

Get some gentle exercise like walking each day. Walking not only makes delivery easy but also keep your skin cells oxygenated and glowing fresh. Most importantly, don’t forget to rest and relax. Sleep well - Chamomile tea, meditation and deep breathing before bed ime may help.

Remember - be a gorgeous expectant mom!
