SKINCARE ROUTINE DURING PREGNANCY: WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING?
Updated: Aug 27, 2021
Apart from emotional changes, physical aspects result in a lot of adjustment when you are pregnant. This does not exclude recalling and re-evaluating your skincare products and routine. The skin during pregnancy involves noticeable changes which are brought by blood flow and of course, hormones. Skin pigmentation, darkening, and irritations are common as well during this life event.
However, pregnancy is a wonderful journey that you deserve to cherish and enjoy. Though there are things that are out of your control, having good skincare is surely manageable with the right skincare ritual.
So, Matykos Beauty prepared these easy skincare guidelines while waiting for the bun in the oven.
Moisturizing soap over “mild soap” - Dryness of the skin often happens at this time. And having the right level of hydration/moisture is essential to avoid skin irritation and flakiness.
Broad Spectrum Sunblock: This is necessary to keep a balance in your skin and to prevent darkening to get worse.
Limit your bath to 1 day only- We understand the hot and sweaty feeling. But having a single bath keeps your skin protected and moisturized.
Ensure to take your vitamins and calcium daily to support the bones and skin state.
Reduce oily food intake.
Have a quality sleep as much as you can. Treating yourself with a home-spa like session will relax not only your body but your mind too.
Pressures and worries are 2 things that keep on visiting during pregnancies but, always remember that this wonderful life chapter can be fun to the fullest. Even though it takes a matter of time to bring back your skin before pregnancy, constant care and correct product choice will keep your skin healthy and glowing.
