Yaay Summer is here which means bare skin, dresses, shorts and bikinis. Unfortunatly since I’m 39 weeks pregnant I won’t be baring too much, but for everyone else, it’s time to get in shape and get your skin looking fabulous. A lot of products on the market promise you beautiful gorgeous skin but not all deliver. I took the Dare To Bare Challenge with Nivea by replacing my usual moisturizers, ( I tend to rotate them) with the Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Lotion Q10 Plus.
A little back story, I have excema along with extremely sensitive skin. My daughter does as well so we only use products that don’t irritate or disrupt. And even then sometimes I mess up and put something with too many added dyes and chemicals on me and break out in a horrible rash. I was a little wary to use the Nivea lotion since it was something new, but I was really happy with my results. I applied it twice a day even to my problem areas for 2 weeks. After 3 or 4 days I noticed a drastic change in the moisture on my arms and legs. It’s not oily or greasy either. It blends well right into your trouble spots. I also get flaky dry patches on my arms as a result of my excema, and the Nivea really helped with hydration.
When you’re extremely pregnant, (which I am) your skin goes through so many stages. The good and the bad. When I’m pregnant my issues are red blotchy spots on my arms and legs and of course the dryness. I noticed the Nivea Q10 even helped me with the red spots I’ve been getting on my legs which can be somewhat embarrassing when going out in public. For the first time since I was 12 weeks pregnant, I feel comfortable wearing a cute dress or even shorts! Many women “embrace” being pregnant and feel more beautiful, not me! I feel gross fat and irritable. The Nivea gave me a bit of relief, I even rubbed it over my tummy and got no irritation whatsoever. My husband even told me my skin felt so much softer and not as rough. I’m honestly surprised at how quickly the turnaround time is for Nivea Q10 Repair. It really repaired everything, and by the end of the 1st week, I was on my way to beautiful skin again!
Yep I’m 39 weeks and having a baby TOMORROW! So glad I took the #DARETOBARE challenge from Nivea, this stuff is literally like silk on your skin. Preggo or not, your skin will love it.
