I feel like I need to brag a little about my pregnancy while I can, I hope you can excuse me for that. We’ve all heard about this special glow coming from pregnant women, right? Well, I’m not sure I have that (although my Grandma does say that I have a face of a pregnant lady whenever we Skype).
However, I must say that this whole pregnancy thing has been really beautifying for me when it comes to my skin and hair. I know you can’t see it from where you are, but trust my word. It’s almost too good to be true! My skin has never been so flawless in my life, I haven’t seen a single imperfection on my face for months now. And the even skin tone, too! Used to be absolutely unheard of.
As for my hair, it’s crazy thick now. I don’t think I’m losing any hair at all! Before I used to lose quite a lot while washing my hair or brushing it. Now, it’s more like one or two hair straws, if I brush it really vigorously!
Of course, these things can change overnight thanks to all the hormones. Although, I’m kind of hoping it’s going to stay that way at least for a while! The price to pay was that I was completely covered with red pimples during the first two months. I remember avoiding mirrors during that period. And then after two months the spots were suddenly all gone!
So yeah, that’s a pretty good bonus from being pregnant, apart from the obvious benefits. I almost wish I could recommend it as a beautifying treatment, but of course I can’t!
