Ok the worst part of the first trimester was my awful blemished skin. I mean it went from acne free to oily, cystic blemishes all over my face and neck. I was embarrassed to go out of the house! So I talked to my sweet friend, the owner of Painted Earth Skincare, and she put together a regimen for me to clear up my skin and help it to glow again. The above left picture is from when I was 6 weeks pregnant and the right is at 12 weeks. My skin is still clear and so much healthier! Here’s my secret:
Painted Earth Boo-Boo Gel
, Charcoal Masque
, and Vitamin C Serum
. I apply the charcoal masque once a week by mixing it with apple cider vinegar and leaving on my face for 7-10 minutes. Both the Vitamin C Serum and the Boo-Boo Gel I use every day after I wash my face. First I apply the Serum and then I finish with a light coating of the Boo-Boo Gel. Wam bam thank you ma’am! AND because I love ya here’s a 10% off coupon code to get your own: use HAPPILY at checkout.
Ingrid and Isabel workout clothes from Figure 8 Maternity
= life-changing. It is so hard to find workout clothes that will grow with your bump, but Ingrid and Isabel does so with style, grace, and comfort. I’m going to be totally honest and tell you that I wore this particular outfit two days in a row. And my husband had to force me to change on the third day. These sports tops have the best chest support I’ve ever experienced. The bottoms are comfy, breathable, and so supportive. I may be wearing them again right now… Make sure to shop I&I on Figure 8 Maternity.
Everyone knows how much I love AboutTime
protein powder, and now that I’m pregnant it’s even more important for my diet. Did you know that a pregnant woman needs .55g of protein per pound? An easy way to get that extra protein, as well as more vitamins and minerals, is with a smoothie every day! You can click on my recipes tab above for plenty of AboutTime smoothie recipes. AND you can use my HAPPILYHUGHES discount code for 25% off your next purchase.
Yoga! Oh how I need this, especially knocked up. Yoga is not just important for exercise, it keeps the body limber, the tendons and ligaments loose, and the mind calm. With all of these extra hormones running around my body, I need something to chill me out and keep me sane. These Namaste TV
videos are perfect. Each video is set in a beautiful setting, and the voice over is both soothing and instructive. Each episode is only 23 minutes long but it’s just enough to give the whole body a good workout. I’m giving away these two DVDs below!
And last but definitely not least is The Breast Whisperer.
In the course of this pregnancy my boobs have gone from a B to a Triple D. Holy toledo batman. And ouch. I don’t remember them hurting this much with Hudson! So I found The Breast Whisperer. It’s the most supportive and comfortable bra I’ve found without any plastic or metallic inserts for underwire support. It was invented by a plastic surgeon AND a portion of each purchase will go to beast cancer charities and research.
It’s giveaway time! One lucky person will win two namaste DVDs, an AboutTime protein powder canister, and a month of online training for free. This is worth over $220!
