Sweatin' like I'm Keith

Hi girls,
Feeling MUCH better! Question. Do pregnant women sweat more? I understand that it was like 100 degrees and horrifically humid in NYC over the weekend, but I was a puddle of perspiration like I've never seen. It was humiliating. I was at my friend's baby shower, wanting to seem as serene as buddha while everyone rubbed my five-month-bump...and yet I was sweating like poor Joshua after a particularly vigorous rhumba (So You Think You Can Dance? Watch it!!). Of course, I'd forgotten my new midsummer obsession at home in my other bag. Philosophy Never Let Them See You Shine Primer ($20) isn't a primer, really--it's more like a magical mattifying lotion you rub on your T-zone and chin to soak up excess oil and shine. And it leaves your skin with the most velvety, silky finish. It's divine! So much quicker and longer-lasting than oil-absorbing sheets...and, if you can't part with your foundation, you can simply mix a quarter-size amount with a drop of Never Let Them See You Shine to make it more mattifying. Absolutely KEY if you're planning on looking at all presentable in this clima muy mal.
Love you,

LOL, bless your lil heart. I didn't sweat a lot when I was pregnant but I didn't have to worst headache. The only thing that helped was standing under a cold shower.

It makes sense that you may sweat more, ESPECIALLY if you aren't someone that normally perspires a lot. Your body is going to do double duty trying to keep you and baby cool.

This product seems great! I have moved into a building that has no water softeners anywhere, and YOU SHOULD SEE MY FACE. My skin is rebelling from all of that excess chlorine with full-on oil slicks that become BLACKHEADS, which my 30-year-old self has NEVER had. This product will definitely come in handy when it's time to take my new ID pic (perfect timing, right?). Now..what to do about my hair?

Oh thanks!
I am about to order some now to sweltering-southern-summer shine :)

And yes, they don't call it a 'bun in the oven' for nothing - that's pretty much what you're stomach is...a little oven :-)

I’ll have to try this. I love Smashhbox’s photofinish primer, but I definitely need something for these ridiculous hot and humid days.
