Dry skin

Anyone else experiencing very dry skin while pregnant? I've been getting rashes on my belly and boobs so I made a mixture of pure coconut oil, raw shea butter, vitamin e oil and palmers solid cocoa butter. Can I say BEST THING EVER!!?? Yes, best thing EVER!! The rash on my stomach has already gone away.

That's awesome!!! I always rub down with coconut oil and vitamin e oil throughout the day. My skin loves it :)

That is the best thing ever!!! I find it works best if I don't dry after I shower and just lather myself in Shea butter.

I plan on using coconut oil on baby as well because a lot of the "baby" lotions has fragrance and I don't know for sure but think that contributes to eczema.
