About that pregnancy glow thing, well -- “It just isn’t so for all mamas,” says Walls. Pregnancy hormones can cause blotchy, red skin, acne or puffiness. But trust us, more foundation is not the answer. Not only can it irritate your skin more, it usually looks like you’re trying to cover up something (not well). Instead, try using powder or a light, oil-free tinted moisturizer. Keep in mind that skin tone can change during pregnancy, so you might need to go a shade darker or lighter.
