What's the best all over body lotion during pregnancy? - Page 2

post #21 of 27

Also, for a good actual lotion, I use this : http://www.amazon.com/Alba-Botanica-Kukui-Cream-Ounce/dp/B00120XR1G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362234721&sr=8-1&keywords=kukui+nut+lotion

 

It smells really nice and isn't heavy plus they don't use a lot of the chemicals you'll find in big brands. It's expensive though, so I do the sugar scrub for my whole body and then lotion for my hands and feet, and a little for my belly if it's itchy.

I like sesame oil right after my shower. For lotion, I don't use it often, but I like Aveeno and Eucerin, the latter is more for really dry spots as it is thick.

Another vote for extra virgin coconut oil. I use it all over after shower on damp skin and also works great as a high shine hair mask.

moisterized but not at all oily. 

I have found that exfoliating every day is not healthy for my skin. I do this same thing with sugar, almond oil and coffee ground once a week or even less.

Olive oil.

I try to avoid stuff with petroleum or silicone on it because they make your skin feel soft without actually moisturizing. I use "Everyday Shea" body lotion for my body, and almond oil for extra dry spots. I apply the oil before I am even fully dry and towel off any excess that doesn't absorb in the minute or two it takes for me to get to the sink and start getting gussied up. The lotion is next.
