You need to take care of your appearance when you’re pregnant! Stressing out over it won’t help you or your baby.
Most pregnant Mamas eventually reach a stage where we wake up in the morning, and our facial skin looks terrible. (If you’re still getting pregnancy glow, hooray!) On some bad days, you might even think it’s too challenging to take care of your facial skin during pregnancy.
You should try to avoid having that mindset! While facial skin problems affect almost everyone, taking good care of your facial skin will help you relax and feel more confident about your pregnancy.
Read on to learn more about why most pregnant women encounter facial skin problems and learn about our extraordinary solution for you.
1. Hormone changes are affecting your facial skin
Pregnancy is a period when loads of hormonal changes occur. These hormones don’t just limit their effect to morning sickness or bad breath, unfortunately. They can affect your skin too!
Hormones can modify your skin pigmentation. It’s so common that between 60% – 90% of Mamas experience some change in the colour of their skin!
Try not to panic or worry about it. Hormone changes are normal, and this is just part of a Mama’s journey 🙂
2. It could be melasma
Melasma – also known as pregnancy mask – is a pigmentation condition that causes discoloured patches of skin to appear on your face. You’ll typically encounter melasma around your nose, forehead and cheeks.
Unfortunately, doctors don’t seem to know the exact cause of melasma during pregnancy. However, most sources point to hormones, sun exposure, and unsafe skin care products as the root cause of melasma.
You can’t dodge hormones, but you can change your habits! Firstly, ensure that you use safe skincare products for your sensitive skin. Secondly, you’ll want to avoid intense sun exposure. Finally, when outdoors, apply light mineral sunscreen to protect your face.
3. Your facial skin isn’t getting enough love and care
Pregnancy is tiring, and most of us forget to care about our facial skin at some point. If you’re in the first trimester, you might avoid using skincare products because the aroma might be too much to handle.
While pregnancy affects your energy, too much neglect can dull your skin. That’s why giving it some tender loving care from time to time is essential!
Don’t let facial skin problems ruin your mood. Instead, try to adopt a positive attitude! Pregnancy should be filled with warm and happy memories.
