Dry skin on face...

I am 16 weeks pregnant and my skin is super dry on my face...I have tried a few things (along with this super awesome organic face balm) but was wondering if there was a better alternative for the day time...
Something that isn't greasy because my skin is oily to begin with...

  • cetaphil moisturizer works great for me and didn't make my skin extra oily...I'm oily also.

  • I have very oily skin too but very dry on my forehead during this pregnancy and I realize this is an oil but I am using Bio Oil and it works great for me without making my skin breakout or oily. Also use it on my tummy and breasts for stretch marks. I apply at night only and then use regular moisturizer during the day. I buy the 2oz. bottle through because it is cheaper with no shipping or tax added.

  • Shea Butter. I swear by it. My face was the opposite during pregnancy but right after delivery I started drying out. The only thing to perk my face back up (and relieved me of looking like the thing that swallowed Mommy) is Shea Butter.
