Get A Pregnancy "Glow" When You Aren't Glowing

Updated on September 24, 2013

They make jokes, but it's not funny.

Websites, movies, and articles alike make fun of the well known fact that some (perhaps most) of pregnant women are sorely disappointed when it comes to pregnancy. Certainly not to downplay how amazing growing life is, sometimes the symptoms that come along with it are more nauseating than actual nausea. Since this has been established, women have come far. We've helped each other beat the small things in order to deal with the big things, the things that cannot be changed (the urge to cry, growing thighs, ect). So here, I bring you one more small fix to bring you the courage to deal with the bigger things more fiercely.

How do you pamper?

The known do's and don't of facial care

Confusing as it may be to search through pages on the internet of safe and unsafe products, you must always consult your doctor. He may tell you that products like salicylic acid and benzyl peroxide are off limits, he may say they are okay. You should base your skin care routine off of your doctor's advice and what you may feel comfortable using. When it comes down to it, I personally like using products that are so gentle I'd feel comfortable eating them. That is how I came up with a natural routine. But regardless, it brought out such beautiful results in my skin I thought it would be worth sharing. You may now judge wether this is a routine you'd like to try.

Olive Oil-It's amazing

Get ready to feel pampered, girl! I know you don't strut your stuff quite like you used to-but it's time. After using these two ingredients, you should feel radiant and beautiful. Not to mention you'd have improved skin health in terms of moisture and rejuvenation. Here's how to start.

  • Warm wash cloth
  • Quality olive oil
  • baking soda
  • tap water: warm

Olive Oil Treatment

With the list above, get into a comfortable position. Begin by taking a small amount of olive oil on your finger tips, and rubbing the oil gently into your skin. Close your eyes, and really enjoy the massage. When you're finished with your entire face, take the warm wash cloth and cover your face-excluding the mouth. This will open your pores, and it feels heavenly! You may notice the wash cloth getting cold. When you do, simply run it under warm water once more and place it back over your face. Do this for 5-10 minutes.

Gentle Face Scrub

Now, return to the sink. Using a bit of olive oil on the finger tips, carefully add baking soda to make a paste. Please do not make this a thick paste. You only need a minimal amount of baking soda. The next step is to gently rub the mixture into your skin. This will remove the dead skin.

The last step is to again wet the wash cloth with warm water, and remove the oil by gently running the wash cloth across the face.

You look beautiful!
