Pass the Lotion! My Pregnancy Led Me to Practice Self Care



Pass the Lotion! My Pregnancy Led Me to Practice Self Care

I applied so much lotion to my body, I could slide down a hallway. Weeeeeeeeeeeee!

While pregnant I decided to practice a little self care. Every morning, I showered, washed my face with pregnancy-friendly products, and applied so much lotion to my body, I could slide down a hallway like a Slip n’ Slide. Weeeeeeeeeeeee!

I didn’t, of course, but it did feel amazing to take care of my body and skin like never before. Not only did it make me feel good and smell good, but this process also connected me to my feminity at a time where I felt like a shero. I am woman, here me roar!

Thing is not all products are created equal, especially when pregnant. Pregnant women are actually not allowed to use products with Retinoid, Tetracycline, Hydroquinone, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dihydroxyacetone, and more. Enter Belli Skincare: a Picky for a Purpose skincare line that is allergy tested, and free of paraben preservatives, phthalates, and artificial dyes or fragrances. Made in the USA, it is perfectly safe for pregnant women as Belli products are screened for ingredients that can harm babies in utero. Belli is also safe for women after they give birth. Their ingredients are safe for breastfeeding mommas.

And Belli smells delicious. Every morning I apply the Belli Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator and want to eat my face.

That’s because Belli Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator has Vitamin C and grape seed oil. It makes my skin glow ala JLo and is super lightweight. My only complaint: no SPF. To stay young, I need to protect myself from the son, son!

Another great Belly Skincare product that I use is the Belli Eye Brightening Cream.

I have always had terrible dark circles. It doesn’t matter how many hours I sleep, I still look like crap! My dark circles are an even bigger problem now that I am sleep deprived cause…motherhood. Since using Belli Eye Brightening Cream, I have seen a bit of a difference, but not as great of a difference as I would like. That’s mostly my fault as I haven’t been very good at keeping up and using it daily. Once I do I’ll share the results! FYI: I’m sure the Belli Eye Brightening Cream will work with long-term use as it is specifically for moms.

The Belli Eye Brightening Cream illuminates tired eyes and minimizes the appearance of fine lines thanks to Vitamin K and Vitamin B3.
