Pregnancy brings the joy of motherhood and the happiness of nurturing a life inside of you. These nine months are when your body goes through a roller coaster of hormonal changes. Along with changes on the inside, a soon-to-be-mom sees changes on the outside as well. Your old clothes don’t fit anymore, your hair starts behaving or misbehaving, and most of all, your skin changes in unexpected ways during pregnancy. Your pre-pregnancy skincare won’t work on your skin during pregnancy. All these are regular changes for an expecting mother.
No soon-to-be-mommy is unfamiliar with the pregnancy glow. The happiness that radiates from the inside shows up on the face and eyes. Your skin glows during pregnancy because of an increase in oil production on the skin’s surface, thanks to the hormonal changes. Some women are blessed with good genes and never face the dreaded acne in their life, while some women have to deal with it (mostly the one who battled with it in their teenage years), during pregnancy due to the surge in sebum production.
If you are one of those women who deal with troublesome skin even during your adulthood, then you might have figured out the products or ways to make your skin behave. Women mostly use retinol and salicylic acid to maintain their skin’s health, and these are some of the ingredients that are avoided during pregnancy. Hence, your skincare needs to be tweaked a bit during pregnancy.
Most women are advised to consult a dermatologist or their gynaecologist for skin concerns during pregnancy to ensure that the pregnancy glow is not hindered by bad skin days.
Here’s a bit of good news, if you haven’t had a breakout during the first trimester of your pregnancy, then you will probably not have any during the rest of the pregnancy. But if you do, then worry not. You can keep your skin happy and glowing with just a few simple skincare routines.
Dealing with the breakout
Androgenic hormones increase in women’s bodies during pregnancy to help in the baby’s growth and development and are also responsible for those pesky breakouts that some women experience during pregnancy. Your pores enlarge during pregnancy, which leads to more sebum production.
You cannot control the hormonal changes in your body while you are waiting for your little miracle to come to the world, but you can surely make your skin behave to a certain extent. Most topical treatments are avoided during pregnancy. However, some of the ingredients like lactic acid, sulfur, and tea tree oil can be used during pregnancy. It is still recommended that you consult your doctor before using products with these ingredients.
Using natural products free from parabens and sulfates are specifically formulated for expectant mothers is the best way to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Our Repair + Renew Youth Anti-Aging Firming Face Wash restores the skin’s moisture balance without stripping the natural oils from the skin’s surface, leaving it soft and glowing. The face wash is mild on the skin and will keep away any oil build-up. The face wash is formulated with premium botanical extracts and vitamins, which help keep the skin glowing.
Let your skin rejuvenate at night
Your skin goes through a lot during the day: battling the harsh sun rays and not to mention the cruel dirt and pollution. Night-time is when your skin repairs and takes a breather. Advanced night repair options help in improving your skin’s overall texture and enhance the complexion. Most night creams are formulated with retinol, which is strictly avoided during pregnancy.
For that stress-free night care regime, choose our Repair + Renew Youth Firming Night Cream. The cream is free from harsh chemicals and toxins. The deeply hydrating cream is rich in antioxidants, which will help improve complexion and reduce the formation of dark spots on the skin so that you wake up with that fresh-looking dewy skin that accentuates your pregnancy glow.
Day time regime is as essential as night-time routine
Handling daytime tasks, being in and out of the sun can cause pigmentation and tanning. To protect your skin from the environmental effects, you must keep your skin protected at all times. Your skin can get affected by sun rays even when you are indoors. While you cannot cover your face with a cloth indoors, you can surely wear a moisturizer that contains SPF to keep your skin from any harm from the outside forces. Exposure to sun rays can cause wrinkles and the appearance of fine lines.
It is necessary to wear a moisturizer with SPF to keep that pregnancy glow intact. Our Radiant Boost Whitening and Illuminating Day Lotion with SPF 30 acts as a shield and keeps the harmful sunray’s from harming the skin. Use this after washing your face with facewash.
Eye creams to brighten the under-eye area
The skin around the eyes is fragile and needs proper care to keep them looking fresh and bright. Lack of sleep, poor diet, and too much screen time can lead to dark circles around eyes with puffiness. Those unholy dark circles can be banished by hydrating your under-eye area and drinking lots of water throughout the day.
Our Radiant Boost Brightening under Eye Cream is a perfect cream for under-eye concerns. Enriched with natural oils, plant butter, and botanical extracts, this under-eye cream can help tighten the skin around the eyes and reduce fine lines and wrinkles while hydrating the area immensely. The cream can be applied twice a day to nourish the under-eye area and keep it healthy.
Our Final Takeaway
Skincare during pregnancy can be tricky, but looking after your skin shouldn’t stress you out. Always consult a doctor before choosing a skincare product while you are pregnant. Home remedies are easy with proven results.
