Pregnancy brings along with not just hormonal changes but completely alters the way you look. Have you ever heard someone saying “You’ve started glowing like never before” or “You look so dull and pale”. These are normal comments that you might hear when you are expecting. Each pregnancy is different, some may glow as a bulb while others may look so drained and worn out. Even so, you can follow these Beauty tips especially for pregnant women and pull off this wonderful phase with ease.
* Look More Closely at Labels
There are some chemicals you better completely avoid in skincare products, such as Accutane, tetracycline, topical salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Some experts believe a chemical found in certain nail polishes, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), may be harmful to your fetus. You’ll also want to avoid formaldehyde and toluene. Luckily, there are major brands that don’t have those ingredients. But always make it a habit to check the labels before you purchase anything during pregnancy period.
* Consider Going All-Natural
Most of the natural herbal based products are considered harmless to skin and baby alike. You can explore the age old traditions to find out some of the home made products that you can be 100% sure it is natural since you are the one who make them for you. Examples can be natural fruit pulps/fruit extracts, tumeric, sandlewood etc that you can do a little bit of processing with utensils you have in kitchen before using them as a beauty care product.
* Learn Some New Tricks
Plenty of moms-to-be complain about their face looking fuller during pregnancy. Try giving your face a slim-down with this tricky blush technique, Apply a lighter shade to the apples of your cheeks, dusting it along your cheekbones and try using powder or a light, oil-free tinted moisturizer. When you do this, try to find a brand that uses organic, all natural ingredients to produce the powder/moisturizer.
* Alert Your Stylist
Avoid coloring your hair during your first trimester, since your baby is more vulnerable during that period. You can still get your hair colored in the second and third trimesters, and have a manicure and a facial during pregnancy. But you definitely want to tell your stylist you’re pregnant. That way, she can choose products with fewer harsh or potentially harmful chemicals. When you’re at the salon, make sure you’re in a well-ventilated room. You definitely don’t want to breathe in the hair dye or polish fumes, because it may be harmful to your lungs and also to baby’s developing body.
