Pregnancy skin issues

My skin, especially on my legs, has gotten so bad. Today I've even put Avon's thickest hand cream all over. I already have insanely dry skin and this pregnancy is making it so much worse. My scalp is horrid. Even the nioxin isn't helping anymore. Any ideas?

  • Try showering every other day instead of every day if you can. And make sure you're drinking a lot of water.

  • In addition to sbastille's suggestions, rub yourself in olive oil- including your scalp. Yeah, your hair will be oily for the time, but it'll feel so much better. Also, when you use lotion, try to use something unscented, since perfumes can irritate your skin. But natural oils are best.
