Ok...I know I should be happy that I have not had morning sickness yet. I'm 6w1d, but this greasy face is driving me crazy. I normally wear makeup, but there is just no point as it just seems to seep into my eyes by mid-morning, which burns like crazy. I have been trying to at least wipe off my face with water whenever I go to the bathroom, but it still doesn't seem to help all the way. Other than the lack of MS, my belly is already getting huge so nothing fits and my gross greasy face just looks terrible. I can't sleep and am so tired, which everyone comments on because I'm not wearing makeup and my boobs are freaking enormous. My DH uses the term "pregnancy glow" and I just think "disgusting grease face". LOL However, despite it all I'm extra happy.
Pregnancy Glow = Disgusting Grease Face
For your face, I think maybe the blotting sheets (Clean & Clear Brand) or the fresh-face wipes (ponds brand) might work well. Probably just baby wipes would work too.
I also found that I could not use my normal makeup during pregnancy. Or my normal hair conditioner, too greasy. Or my normal deodorant, too wimpy!
My face was a complete mess for my entire pregnancy when I was pregnant with DS. I usually break out really bad the week before my period and then it clears up the week after. This time I broke out the week before I would have had my period and now it's cleared up. I'm really hoping my face stays clear this time around. I don't wear makeup but I was still working during my last pregnancy so I bought some natural/organic stuff and it worked ok for covering some of it. I also use Aubry Organics face wash for oily skin and it is amazing- I double checked all the ingredients and they are safe for pregnancy.
Have you tried using the basq product called "Rebalancing Facial Cleanser"? It is awesome. basq is a pregnancy skincare line. They have all different items but my favorite is the facial cleanser. It uses Oak Root Extract to keep away blemishes and Ylang Ylang to balance your skin. It is great! I used it with my 2nd pregnancy, in between and now with my third. You can find it at Destination Maternity, Pea in the Pods...etc. Or you can just go to their website basqnyc.com
