Pregnancy is a time when your whole body undergoes change and your skin and hair will not stay unaffected by the hormonal roller coaster. The clothes you wore before, will no longer fit and the beauty regime that you followed before you got pregnant might suddenly prove inadequate or ineffective. Some pregnant women get lovely glowing skin as a result on hormonal changes while for others it might be acne time! Staying healthy and eating right can go a long way towards making you feel beautiful during this special phase of life.
10 Beauty Tips During Pregnancy
Here’s the list of ten DIY beauty tips you must try during pregnancy:
1. Stay Hydrated And Eat Right
Make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day to help cleanse your body of toxins. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is not only good for the baby, but it will also prevent your skin from looking dull and tired.
2. Acne Flare-Ups
If you are one of the unfortunate ones who have not been blessed with glowing skin during pregnancy, do not fret. Wash your face daily with a soap-free cleanser twice a day. Be gentle when washing and drying your skin. Do not scrub or try to squeeze the zits. Opt for oil-free moisturizers and make-up during this period.
3. Give Yourself A Mani-Pedi
With your nails growing quicker than you can say ‘polish’, make manicures and pedicures a regular affair. Get some hand and foot scrub, some warm water and a nail file. Soak your hands and feet in warm water and shape your nails. Polish them a cheery shade and see how it lifts your spirits every morning.
4. Styling Your Hair
Go in for an easy maintenance haircut or that you do not need to spend much time on every day. Getting hair coloured, flat ironing it or using a curler are usually considered safe after the first trimester, but just check with your doctor to be on the safe side.
