Looking for tips on skin products...

At first in pregnancy I had nasty greasy skin.  Now it seems to be drying up, and I especially feel it around my torso and hips.  I was thinking about getting a bath oil or some kind of body wash I could use in/after the shower to seal in the moisture. 

 

Any recommendations?

Ooohh I didn't even think of coconut oil.  I've got a vat of it just waiting to be tried.  Thx!

Coconut oil in the bath has been awesome for me. 

 

I also don't use soap except on certain areas :)

A Clarisonic cleanser is another thing I'm considering for these skin changes.  I'm 40 and my skin feels the need for exfoliation beyond a scrub.  There's also the Olay competitive model.  Anyone here have any experience with either of these?

Be very, very gentle with pregnant skin. If you need to exfoliate, I would put on a thin later of cold cream, then gently wrote off with a barely damp warm washcloth. Or look into the oil cleansing method.
