Postpartum Skin Woes? Essentials You Need To Know & Ways To Deal With It

Every woman sees the not-so-pretty changes in her skin during one of the most cherished times of her life. Be it Acne, Pigmentation, Stretch marks or Melasma; your skin goes through even more changes after pregnancy.

Just like the rest of your body, your skin can take a long time to get back to normal (whatever that was for you) after you have delivered. That rosy mom-to-be glow (caused by hormonal changes & fueled up blood flow to your skin) may be gone, possibly replaced by postpartum acne, blemishes or pigmentation (thanks a lot) due again to hormonal swings (plus stress, sleep deprivation and about no time for skin care). Let us not forget about those dark splotches on your forehead, upper lip and cheeks, which are yet to fade, or will they ever?

The good news is that these changes are not permanent. With little care towards themselves, women can go back to looking and feeling like their pre-pregnancy self in due course of time. Let us discuss the physical changes women see in their skin post-pregnancy and ways to overcome these.

Changes You See In Skin After Delivery & How To Take Care Of It:

While some women are blessed enough to bask in the delivery glow for a lifetime, others may experience acne, pigmentation, stretch marks, puffy eyes and dark circles. With little or no care, it tends to get aggravated. So, new mommies need to pay attention to their skin care needs as soon as possible.

Stretch Marks:

Stretch marks undoubtedly are one of the most stubborn ones to get rid of. Due to the gain (during delivery) and subsequent loss (after delivery) in weight, women see stretch marks in many parts of their bodies after the delivery. These stubborn stretch marks will not go away entirely but will become lighter with time. Initially, they will be pink, purple, or reddish-brown in color. Eventually, the pigmentation will go away, making them look lighter.

Dark Spots:

The stress and hormonal changes that come with motherhood can have adverse effects on your facial skin. The development of brownish spots is just one of them. To stop these dark spots from increasing, it is essential to be gentle to the skin and cleanse it twice a day with a mild cleanser.

Pigmentation or Melasma:

It is expected that during pregnancy, dark patches develop on the face. These are called chloasma or melasma. This change in pigmentation occurs due to the high level of pregnancy hormones or stress in the body. These hormones gradually decrease after pregnancy. While some brown patches may become less noticeable, others may stay for good. Anyone with this condition must avoid constant exposure to the sun and follow good skin care products to help it diminish or prevent it from further increasing.

Dark Circles, Puffiness or Under Eye Wrinkles:

Dark circles and puffy eyes are the results of hormonal changes, as well as lack of sleep after delivery. This is mainly because your eyes express the tiredness that your body experiences post-delivery. Constantly waking up to feed the baby causes a lack of proper sleep, leading to dark circles, under-eye puffiness, and aging of the under-eye skin.

Acne breakouts during or post-pregnancy are widespread. High progesterone levels post-pregnancy can cause pimples to break out. If you have had clear skin throughout the pregnancy, then this may come as a surprise to you. Taking care of your skin is essential to help diminish pimples and prevent them from further leaving marks on your skin.

Other natural ingredients like Tulsi, French Green Clay, Turmeric, Witch Hazel, & Sweet Almond Oil help nourish the skin while improving skin texture and complexion.

Hypersensitive Skin:

Many of you may experience sensitive skin after pregnancy. Anything may cause your skin to react adversely. For example, even a little exposure to the sun may cause the skin to burn. Sometimes, your skin may feel irritated towards things like chlorine, detergent and most skin care products. It is advisable to use products based out of natural ingredients so that they don’t react with sensitive skin and in fact, cools it down further. Skin care products with aloe vera are most advisable in such a case as it is a soothing and calming effect on the skin and naturally hydrates it.

As mentioned earlier, some of the above skin issues may fade away with time, while some conditions such as skin allergy after giving birth may stay and require special care, which makes it imperative to follow a proper skin care regimen.
