A few weeks ago, I was invited to a fun yet educational event hosted by Nisce Skin Medispa – “The Bump Diaries: Pregnancy Beauty 101”.
It was very timely for me since I’m around 28 weeks pregnant that time and for the pregnant beautypreneur, Antoinette Nisce-Ngo, the VP/COO/International Licensed Aesthetician of Nisce Skin Medispa. At the event, Antoinette shares her secret on how she keep her skin young and glowy aka her pregnancy beauty routine. As we all know, many women go into pregnancy expecting to get “losyang”, get breakouts, darker pits & neck, stretch marks and more. But preggo Antoinette Nisce-Ngo 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 preggo like us and in need of a little lift, here are the products she shared with us at the event:
1) Nisce Skin Basics Gentle Soap P88
This soap has a Moisturizing, Anti-Bacterial, Anti Inflammatory and Anti Environmental Pollution properties with key ingredients: Aloe Vera, Vit. E, Shea Butter & 9 more Plant Extracts safe for all skin types including sensitive skin.
2) Nisce Dermatology Papaya Cucumber Toner P280
Best for normal to dry skin. It rehydrates the skin while improving cellular functions and absorption of ingredients like Cucumber extract that soothes irritated skin.
3) Nisce Dermatology Vit. E Cream w/ SPF30 P325
Contains Vitamin E to lock in skin’s Natural Moisture along w/ high SPF for daily Protection.
4) Nisce Dermatology Gold Collagen Facial Mask P160
Plumps up the appearance of skin by repairing aging cells with its gold and collagen ingredients.
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.
- HIGHLIGHTS. 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.
- MASSAGES. 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.
- FACIALS. 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:
a. Nisce Natural Fresh Mix Agas Facial
b. Nisce Age Defy Facial Or
c. Nisce Gentle Diamond Peel Facial
Tip: Test the product on your skin before starting.
6. Post Pregnancy Treatments:
- NISCE EXILIS ELITE Nonsurgical Fat Reduction on the Abdomen & Abdominal Skin Tightening
When Can You Do It: Six months after delivery and get as close to your pre-pregnancy weight as possible.
- NISCE FRACTIONAL C02 LASER OR BLOOMEA PARIS TREATMENTS FOR STRETCH MARKS
When Can You Do It: These nonsurgical treatments regimen could be started as early as three months after giving birth.
- NISCE CUTERA LASER GENESIS for skin rejuvenation, stretch marks treatment, acne scars and pigmentation, and permanent hair removal. When Can You Do It: Six months after delivery.
Nisce Skin Medispa’s The Bump Diaries: Pregnancy Beauty 101, was also an of exchange of mommy & life hacks and tips among the members of the press and the mommy and lifestyle bloggers.
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 myself (ehem, lols) representing the Top Filipino Mommy Blogsite – www.mommybloggersphilippines.com, were also guest speakers of the event. Youtuber and beautypreneur, Cheneleng Pili of Cheneleng Cosmetics also shared a quick makeup look for moms on-the-go.
Not only it was a shower of raffle items and freebies from Nisce Skin Medispa and partners Zoya Philippines and MedEV’s Cutera Philippines, the event also gave us the experience of living and eating in Paris through their grazed table by Aperitif.ph who took Manila’s Instagram scene by storm when sisters Karla Zulueta & Kim Zulueta discovered the art of grazing.
Key takeaway, self-care is as important as the focus should be on the baby. “If you’re thinking, ‘how can I create the healthiest baby possible?’ you can’t go wrong.” – Nisce Skin Medispa
