My face with Marsi didn't get the weird blotchy pigments...well, this time, no such luck. I am hoping mineral powder evens it up enough because I hate cover up base. I thought girls were supposed to take your beauty. Lol. Must be a pretty boy I am baking.

Be thankful dear, that it's pregnancy skin and it'll go away. I have AGE SPOTS. EEEEK!!!!! Where's my cane! Actually, they go away too, when I take off my bifocals. Hahahaha! Oh you have to have a sense of humor about these things.

I had pregnancy skin with DS. I was told to use toner - which made it worse. My mother told me to soak my face in whole milk. I did and it was very soothing and did relieve the blotchiness a bit. Now, if you're allergic to milk, I don't recommend it.

I have gotten it every time I have been pregnant. It is mainly on my forehead and just looks terrible. I have used some cover up to help even it out but the good news is that it does fade and will go back to looking normal again. it usually takes mine about 4 or 5 months to completely fade.

Leia you crack me up..LMAO!!

I don't think I could do the milk. DD doesn't drink it and I am lactose intolerant so it is only for cold cereal. I just keep reminding myself it isn't permanent.

I haven't had that yet. I just get the broken out skin. Mineral powder does seem to help acne outbreaks though, so that's good. I hope it works for you!

I use the tinted moisturizers to help cover up under my mineral makeup (when I wear makeup). I've been getting really dry skin - yuck.

That sucks I'm sorry
I have a really dry, patch on my hand and it feels thick like turtle skin or something. I keep it moisturized but it doesn't seem to be helping. I asked my Dr about it and he said he didn't know what it is but pregnancy can cause all kinds of weird temporary skin issues.

When I feel like crap, I always make myself up. The mineral powder worked well.

Thanks. I think pregnancy actually makes me look better for the most part.

Preg does bring out all kinds of yuckies. I've had splotches since June. Now I have a skin tag thingy. It's very annoying- but these things are temporary!
