I’m very cautious about what I apply on my face, because my skin has a tendency to break out easily. I have been plagued with “teenage skin” since the age of 10. Surprisingly, I haven’t really experienced any skin issues during my pregnancy, especially during my first and second trimester. I like to think it’s because of the glorious pregnancy hormones, but it’s most likely due to the fact that I’m nearing my thirties. However, I did have a couple of mini breakouts recently, but they quickly went away since I’ve been using the Organic Citrus Blemish Lotion ($32). This product helps prevent and treat breakouts due to stress and hormonal changes. It also aids in healing existing ones.
During this pregnancy, I haven’t experienced any issues with stretch marks. This is probably due to the fact that I’ve been using products, such as the Organic Beauty Belly Cream ($26) early on. The only stretch marks that I have are old, faded ones that I got as an overweight teen. While they’re no longer an issue since they’re barely noticeable, it be would be nice to find a product that will get rid of them altogether without having to get laser treatment. I can’t vouch for others, so I can only tell you from my experience that it didn’t remove old, existing stretch marks, it only prevented new ones. Perhaps, one will not be able to notice a difference with just one tube, unless they continuously buy and use this product, which could get a little pricey.
