It is very common to have dry and itchy skin during pregnancy. I also experience the same things, especially on my stomach area. It is quite disturbing as I can scratch it freely *it will left my skin with stretch mark*, To deal with it I use some moisturizing products and now I want to share the products and also my beauty routine with you~
I've been using the moisturizer for years, and love it so much. So, I decided to use the body wash also since few months ago, because my skin has become more and more drier every day. The body wash works good on my dry skin and it also soap free, paraben free, and fragrance free *one thing that I like from this brand*
Second~Palmer Cocoa Butter Formula for Dry, Itchy Skin.
After take a bath, I spray a lot of Palmer Oil. This is really good to reduce the itchiness on my skin. The instruction is to pat it on skin, but I love to use The Body Shop Spa Fit Body Massager to spread all the oil. I usually used it with circular motion for 3-5 minutes.
Third~ Vaseline Petroleum Jelly
After oil, next step is apply a lot of petroleum jelly, I used vaseline. Actually I don't really like the texture because it is really sticky. But it works good to makes my skin moist even after hours.
Fourth- Redwin Sorbolene Moisturiser
This is optional, I only apply this when I feel itchy after all the routines above. I have 2 tubes of this products. I put one near my bed, and 1 inside my bag and carry it with me everywhere. This moisturizer really help to soothe and relieve cracked, dry, and itchiness on skin.
That's all my new beauty routine for body during my pregnancy. Any suggestion for another good products to relieve dryness and itching?
