We’re sure you have thought to yourself; pregnant women look luscious and glowing; we definitely agree! But, all of that extra hormonal activity can sometimes have the opposite effect, too.
During pregnancy, when your body is going through changes it is so important to pay attention to your skin and follow a skincare regime. The changes in hormonal levels make pregnancy acne very common, and while you may feel the itch to purchase some Clearasil, resist that temptation! You have to be mindful about the ingredients inside the creams you use. Try to avoid products that contain benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or any retinoid.
Sunscreen is just as important during pregnancy as it is pre-pregnancy. While it’s safe to use sunscreen, there are so many varieties that you can become confused or overwhelmed. The best thing to do is consult with a skin care professional prior to purchasing anything topical for your skin.
With all the hormonal changes, remedies, treatments, and the preparations that a pregnant woman undergoes, it’s understandable if skin care falls on the priority list. But remember, skin care can also have a considerable effect on your comfort during this time.
