Skin Care for Pregnant Women

pregnantskincarePregnancy is such a high time for every woman. Carrying a breathing life inside the womb is magical. The experience could be perfect if only hormonal imbalances would not give you problems about looking good.

One of the biggest nightmares of pregnant women is not getting that glow that would describe the happiness they feel inside. Most of the time, the overworking hormonal activity causes a variety of skin problems that make them feel less than pretty… and happy. Add to that, the fact that pregnant women have limited options on Skin Treatments that would be safe for their unborn child.

Even if you have a hefty supply of beauty products in your dresser, you can’t just use them just because they are tried and tested to eliminate your skin problems. The regular treatments you run to whenever you experience a breakout, a bump or discoloration may sometimes have to wait until you are after the child is born or after you are through nursing the newborn exclusively. You have to consult your healthcare provider first if the skin products or treatments do not contain ingredients that could harm your baby’s health. Below are some useful notes. Read on:

On Getting Rid of Tattoo

skincareThere are Tattoo Removal creams that contain harmful chemicals and they must not be used during pregnancy. However, if you are opting for a laser treatment, which only causes a superficial burn that do not get through the outer layer of the skin, health experts find it overall safe.

On Acne Attack

You might be used to seeing a zit in your face every now and then but since you can experience an awful crop during pregnancy, acne is considered a huge beauty problem that mommies-to-be are pretty conscious about. Unfortunately, you cannot rely on your usual products that contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or any retinoid. What you can do instead is to look for skin care products that are sulfur-based and contain alpha hydroxy acid or glycolic acid for the most part.

On Skin Pigmentation

Having that pregnancy mask is one of the common complains among expectant mothers. The pigmentation or the appearance of dark patches that usually on the face can be irritating. What you can do is to stay out of the sun as much as possible as it is usually exposure to the harmful rays that make the discoloration problem worse. You may also use a topical vitamin C product or those that contain azelaic acid for safe Skin Rejuvenation.
