Basic rule…always ask your doctor first!
International licensed aesthetician, Antoinette NIsce-Ngo is the VP/COO of Nisce Skin Medispa, a chain of skin care and wellness centers in the country. She has been appearing at various events lately, putting her growing baby bump on display in cute dainty dresses and skirts. Everything’s coming up roses for this young soon-to-be a mother of two, especially in the skincare department.
Recently, she hosted a forum called The Bump Diaries: Pregnancy Beauty 101, a timely event for the pregnant beautypreneur, where she shared her pregnancy beauty routine. As we all know, many women go into pregnancy expecting to get “losyang,” get breakouts, darker pits and neck, stretch marks and more. But preggy Antoinette is a living example that it’s not always the case, and skin care regimen doesn’t need to always be expensive.
So if you’re preggy and in need of a little lift, here are the products she shared during the forum:
- Nisce Skin Basics Gentle Soap
- Nisce Dermatology Papaya Cucumber Toner
- Nisce Dermatology Vit. E Cream with SPF30
- Nisce Dermatology Gold Collagen Facial Mask
The country and Singapore’s leading digital parenting magazine, theAsianparent, represented by Donna Santos(Head of Brand Solutions)and Candice Venturanza (Head of Content) and the Top Filipino Mommy Blogsite—mommybloggersphilippines.com, represented by Mhaan Arambulo Delos Santos of mommyrockininstyle.com, were also guest speakers of the event. It was highlighted in the forum that Pregnancy Beauty starts with the right attitude and an awareness of what an expectant mother is doing to her body.
Likewise, a certified dermatologist, a diplomate of the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) and the Medical Director of Nisce Skin Medispa, Dr. Patricia “Trixie” Valle – Tin, who is also a gorgeous mom, shed light on the issue of spa and beauty treatments for expectant mom. Here are the points discussed on “What You Can and Shouldn’t Do”:
- Your daily beauty routine. Generally speaking, your everyday hair, makeup, and bathing rituals are perfectly fine.
- Manicures and Pedicures as long as polishes used are safe like Zoya and nail services shot not entail massaging your feet and hands.
- While coloring the hair is a topic of debate, highlights are fine as long as the chemicals don’t come in contact with your scalp.
- Contrary to the popular belief, a massage is the perfect way to rid you of those pregnancy aches and pains and to help you to relax and forget the stresses of impending motherhood. NOTE: However, if you’re in your first trimester, it’s better to hold off. Just always make sure that your masseuse is a certified prenatal therapist.
- It’s generally safe to get a facial while pregnant – as long as you avoid harsh treatments like microdermabrasion and certain kinds of chemical peels. Try to get an all-natural facial if possible such as the:
- Nisce Natural Fresh Mix Agas Facial
- Nisce Age Defy Facial Or
- Nisce Gentle Diamond Peel Facial
