I've been using a mix of black seed oil, coconut, grape seed & avocado oil.


You need a super emollient fatty acid rich oil.....I wouldn't exfoliate until after the baby because your skin is still stretched.....info says exfoliate but I don't think that info pertains to women that are currently pregnant....The oils you're using are cool but you need an oil that mimics sebum......





I read that coconut oil mimics sebum. So I think for now I'll keep using my coconut oil. I'll add sunflower oil to that. & jojoba if I can find some for a reasonable price. Thanks again

jojoba is the oil closest to natural sebum i believe…

i need to actually make some Amlactin instead of just drop LA into some lotion ive pumped out into my hand. EmbarrassedDead I need to use this niacinamide on my dresser and the vitamin c powder to make serums but i need to get proper bottles for storage. 

Random thought: I wonder if she has any of that mango and cilantro ish, damn store doesnt open till 11

is your vitamin C homemade?

My biggest concern is hyperpigmentation right under my eyes. I had eczema there as a child from stress and so far, everything I've tried to fade that area has failed.  Hydroquinone is too strong for me. I'm basically relying on concealer but I don't much care for the raccoon eyes look au naturel.

Overall my skin is looking better these days though. Been doing salicylic acid and glycolic peels, as well as applying turmeric and yogurt masks. My skin is nice and smooth. Pores are still big though. It's been that way since I hit 40 and I hear there's not much you can do about that.

Diane, I just couldnt deal with the smell of amlactin i had to add lavender oil to mask it..... and i like butters and oils instead,lotions dont do enough for me.

i usually make 20% vit c serum using rose water,glyerine and a drop of rosehip seed oil. Bought the LAA powder from amazon.
