Beauty Tips During Pregnancy
Pregnancy frequently will change your look more than you simply having a larger mid-section. Use the suggestions below for adjusting your approach to beauty during your pregnancy.
If you normally treat your hair with harsh chemicals, you may want to lay off those treatments during pregnancy. You should consult with a physician or other healthcare adviser about whether your current hair treatments should be modified during pregnancy. If you decide to change how you treat your hair, research a look that you believe will work for you during pregnancy. If you want to try to duplicate your look without using the same products you’re accustomed to, be sure to research new products carefully.
You can choose a longer hairstyle and wear larger earrings to counteract the look of an enlarged body during pregnancy. You should also consider wearing longer chains for your necklaces rather than choker-type necklaces that can make your weight-gain look more noticeable during pregnancy.
Your face may appear to be a different shape during pregnancy because of fluctuations in weight and how much water you’re retaining. Consider whether applying your blush differently can create a more suitable look for your pregnancy face.
If you develop pregnancy blemishes make sure you consult with your obstetrician before choosing a blemish treatment. Some blemish treatments include harsh ingredients that you might want to avoid during pregnancy. You can also research holistic treatments for blemishes.
Sometimes pregnancy can make your skin’s surface dryer, or your skin can become more oily. Consider purchasing makeup products in smaller sizes so that you won’t overspend on cosmetics that don’t suit your pregnancy skin.
If you find yourself snacking frequently during pregnancy, consider carrying a travel toothbrush and toothpaste in your bag to make sure that your breath stays fresh.
Leave some extra time in the morning to apply your makeup while you’re pregnant since your morning routine can take longer because of reduced energy levels or because you’re experiencing morning sickness.
You may find that your usual scent choices for soaps or colognes suddenly make you feel nauseated or seem to smell different when you apply them to your body, in which case you’ll want to switch out your scent during pregnancy. If your spouse likes your usual cologne, bring your spouse with you when you’re considering a new scent.
If you’re accustomed to wearing very high heels, you’ll likely choose lower shoes during your pregnancy in order to remain comfortable and safe while you’re walking. If you feel like you require the height that heels give you but don’t want to wear spiked heels that can negatively impact your balance when you’re walking, consider choosing a platform shoe.
You may find that trouser socks or knee-highs that you’re accustomed to wearing under slacks are too tight for your calves. Consider trying wide-calf trouser socks or using pantyhose instead of trouser socks during your pregnancy.
Your style and beauty regimen are likely to change during pregnancy. Use some of the tips above to accommodate your pregnancy while achieving the look you want.
