Chatting up with your besties ahead of pregnancy you might be prone to chatting up on topics like popular baby names, kids learning, how to produce healthy kids, understanding their body language and the like but you must also work out on challenges closer than the aforementioned, like your physical appearance and skin health. When you get pregnant you will come across many mothers who will claim they had an around the clock glow that you cannot have even after the most relaxing night’s sleep and still many women shall inform you of the skin blackening and skin sensitivity and constant feeling of unrest that they suffered from during their pregnancy term. Whatever the case one must understand that the inevitable result of bearing a child is that the infant draws upon the mother's reserves, thus making her undernourished, sickly and pale. To avoid this, pregnant ladies are advised to pay heed to the following beauty tips.

 

·         Water is the name of the game

Water not only hydrates your skin but also meets the dual demands of yourself and your baby during pregnancy. Drink plenty of water and yes, relieving yourself does become very cumbersome but it is not excuse to dehydrate yourself. Keep a water bottle handy at all times and keep drinking it as often as you can.

·         The magically potent Vitamin C

Though you need to get all your vitamins in the right proportion during your pregnancy, however Vitamin C is of particular importance especially when seen from the beauty angle. This vitamin plays a vital role in maintaining the health of your skin. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage -- free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Research suggests that vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet B radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure. This last property does come in handy because a pregnant woman’s skin is prone to more sensitivity and sun damage.

·         Eat Well

Pregnancy is the time to let go of those unhealthy junk foods and those fatty foods that are dripping with oil. Instead, it is time to follow Popeye and consume plenty of greens. Go for healthy and wholesome veggie soups, nut and green salads. Strive to create a diet that consists of 3/4 vegetables and salads and 1 /4 grains, carbohydrates and proteins.

·         Don’t forget to exercise

It is perhaps as much important to exercise and as it is to consume a good diet. It is best recommended to indulge in frequent walking and/or water exercises to keep the blood pressure good and healthy. These will also help the baby out heaps. Remember that Strong muscles and a fit heart can greatly ease labor and delivery. Gaining control over your breathing can help you manage pain. And in the event of a lengthy labor, increased endurance can be a real help.

·         Controlling the advent of stretch marks

Stretch marks are the biggest turn offs and the best way to control them is by keeping your skin super hydrated 24 into 7. One of the best moisturizers is the Emu oil which allows deep healing of the stretch marks though your regular moisturizer will also do. The trick is the frequency it the application of the oil or cream and not it’s content or amounts.
