From Playboy to parenthood, Holly Madison, most recently known for her starring role in Las Vegas burlesque act ‘Peepshow’ will be expecting her first child with new boyfriend Pasquale Rotella. Holly’s retro quirky style and bleach blond hair will look so charming with a growing baby bump. In honor of her exciting announcement, here is a look at some new mom-to-be beauty survival products.
The changing pregnant body requires new body care necessities. For sore legs and feet, look for gentle formulas with intense hydration. Especially for working moms-to be, the legs and feet can swell and irritate easily. Burt’s Bees Mama Bee Leg and Foot Crème soothe aching muscles and gives powerful hydration.
Stretch marks and inflamed skin can make the stretching process uncomfortable but there are ways to calm the skin. Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil contains 100% pure botanical extracts that aids the smoothing and firming texture of the skin. Used before pregnancy, this #1 selling treatment will help to maintain the smoothness of pre-pregnant skin. Palmer’s Massage Cream for Stretch Marks is a great post pregnancy stretch mark treatment. It is a cocktail of vitamin e, almond oil and collagen to improve the texture of the skin on hips, thighs, bust and belly.
Instead of aggressive fragrances, choose comforting scents of lavender, bergamot, sandalwood or chamomile. Many women will associate different aromas with relaxation. Try out a few scents in stores; L’Occitane en Provence specializes in essential oils, many of which offer a calming reaction. If hormones and fragrances are not mixing well, invest in a few high quality candles to not overpower your senses. Body oils or scented powders are also alternative options for ultra-sensitive noses.
