Cocoa Butter: It really doesn’t matter what brand you use, cocoa butter helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks as your belly grows and grows.
Bronzer: Recently I have noticed my face has started looking rather round, which is hard to avoid as you gain weight. Contouring your face (at least a little bit) with bronzer can help camouflage any puffiness our roundness.
Concealer: Not everyone has the most beautiful pregnancy glow. I know I don’t. Instead I have been having some amazing hormonal breakouts. Mix that with some sleepless nights, and trust me…you will NEED concealer.
Water: Not only is it super important to stay hydrated for your health and the health of your baby, but your skin will thank you.
A good night’s sleep: For me, sleep is a luxury I thought I would have until the baby was born. But lately it’s been difficult getting a good night sleep with my baby bump, carpal tunnel, and insomnia keeping me awake. Do what you can to get a good night’s sleep.

Spa Treatments: Ask your doctor which treatment are safe for you during your pregnancy. I recently had a facial and prenatal massage that really helped me relax and unwind. At the very least, treat yourself to a pedicure. You deserve to be pampered.
Pregnancy Specific Products: I just ordered this little kit of pregnancy products from Net-A-Porter that care specifically for a pregnant woman’s needs. From treating swollen skin to fighting hormonal breakouts, this was a no brainer for me!
