Oily and zitty and dry, oh my!

So another thing that everyone forgets to mention is the teenage like acne that is in store for all pregnant women (consider this a warning). It certainly begs the question – is it pregnancy ‘glow’ or oily skin? ‘They’ use so many fancy words to make pregnancy sound wonderful and fun. It’s acne. Let’s call a spade a spade. So if I’m going to break out like a teenager, I’m going to fight back with the weapons of a teenager. Ladies- 2 words: Clean & Clear. I have their acne stick (for lack of a better word) in my make-up bag, laptop bag, purse and car console. Don’t leave home without it. It works fast and it pretends to be a concealer but it’s really a blemish blaster. Those suckers are gone over night. It’s the tool de jour for pregnant ladies. Bio-Oil. I’m still not convinced it isn’t just bionic vitamin E. It smells like vitamin E, same colour as Vitamin E so…. But I’m a sucker for things unknown to me so I bought it anyway. It promises to reduce scars and completely prevent stretch marks. We’ll see. I wonder if it might repair some of the evidence of my childhood scrapes and cuts. I’m going to put it to the test.


About Becoming Mommy

I'm a 42 year old woman pregnant with my first child. It's been a rough road to get here and even rougher once I got here! Books and websites cannot prepare you for what you're about to go through -emotionally and physically.
