Some Pregnancy Make Up Tips
Adjust any skin care regimen to pregnancy-related changes, either by adding more moisture to combat dryness or switching to oil-free formula if skin has an oily texture.
Use sunscreen. Pregnancy hormones often leave the skin sensitive and more vulnerable to the sun and other allergies. Adequate use of sunscreen will help minimise chances of hyper pigmentation condition.
To conceal hyper pigmentation, you can use a corrective concealer that blends with the skin colour easily. A light foundation application should be set with fixing powder.
Go organic: Devoid of chemicals and harmful pesticides, herbal beauty products are the best and safest pick for pregnant women.
If you feel the natural glow has begun to fade away, fret not, just fake it with pretty shades of blush or use a light touch of bronzer over the face. This will lend a perfect sun-kissed look.
Keep your skin hydrated by drinking water at regular intervals. Use moisturisers and creams that are fragrant-free so that the risk of chemicals going into the body is averted.
Some of the chemicals that can put the baby’s health at risk are: Salicylic acid: Though it helps cleanse pores and prevent acne and skin blemishes; high doses of the same, however, can lead to serious birth defects. Anti-ageing agents: Avoid going for beauty products high on retinoid content.
And at all times abide by your doctors advice x
