Taking care of your skin is always extremely important; however, when it comes to pregnancy and skincare, the topic is even more sensitive. With the variety of hormonal developments and body changes that take place during pregnancy, your skin can significantly change as well. Implementing an effective, proactive pregnancy skincare routine can help you avoid stretchmarks, itching, and irritation.
In terms of facial skincare, maintaining a level of cleanliness and moisturizing is key. Many pregnant women experience extensive increases or decreases in oil production, resulting in breakouts or severe dryness. Using the appropriate skin cleanser can help alleviate these extremes. A sensitive purifying facial foam is great for cleansing and soothing the skin, while an acne clearing facial scrub will stop breakouts. Aside from just cleansing skin during pregnancy skincare, effective moisturizing is key. Using an appropriate moisturizer is important.
Another pregnancy skincare issue that periodically arises for expectant women is uncharacteristic itching or skin sensitivity. This too arises from hormonal changes and can be treated fairly easily in most cases. Using a soothing body oil or cream will help soothe itching skin.
Another pregnancy skincare need many women face is maintaining the elasticity and vitality of their skin to avoid stretch marks and tightening. Applying body oil or body butter regularly helps revitalize a woman's skin to avoid marks from stretching. It also maintains moisture and comfort. And, if that's not enough, using stretch mark fading cream post-baby can renew and replenish skin while eradicating stretch marks and blemishes.
As an expectant mother, being proactive about skincare is a must. Implementing skincare treatments designed for pregnancy is crucial to take care of mom and baby.
