Many women, being in a state of pregnancy, mistakenly believe that during this period their skin of special care does not require at all. And this is fundamentally incorrect – after all, in this responsible and very important period in the life of a young woman due to the hormonal restructuring of her body, age spots may appear on her face, and stretch marks on the skin of the body. To avoid such problems, future mothers from the first days of their interesting situation are recommended carefully and properly care for their skin. Let’s look at the basic principles of skin and body skin care during pregnancy, and will help pregnant women even in this period look charming and fresh.
If you began to detect pigmented spots on the skin of your face, then there may be several reasons for this process. The thing is that, most likely, your body does not have enough vitamins and, in particular, vitamin C during this period. To eliminate this problem, you should start taking a special vitamin complex for pregnant women on the recommendation of a doctor, which will make up for a deficiency of vitamins in your body. It is also advisable to diversify your diet and include black currants, green onions, lemon, cabbage, raspberries, spinach and strawberries in it.
Pigment spots on the face of a pregnant woman can occur for another reason – the expectant mother is under direct sunlight for a long time. If, for some reason, there is no way to reduce the time of being under the sun, then a woman in a position to prevent age spots is recommended to use sunscreens selected by skin type.
Many expectant mothers are very concerned about the appearance of stretch marks on their skin – thin and white stripes. As a rule, they are not enough and after pregnancy turn pale completely. But, unfortunately, in some women, in the position of stretching, they have a rather bright purple and pink color and are quite wide. In order for them to be less noticeable, it is necessary to lubricate the problem areas of moisturizing lotions, creams or oils, which can also be used as preventive products from the appearance of stretch marks. Although, according to doctors, a genetic predisposition, a quick weight gain and the degree of elasticity of the skin of the future mother are in many ways to blame for this. Therefore, if your mother or grandmother had stretch marks during pregnancy, then from the first days of pregnancy you need to start self -massage, using special means for stretch marks in order to prevent their occurrence.
Every pregnant woman needs to remember that at this time her skin can become more sensitive even to those means that a woman used before pregnancy. There are cases when the expectant mother had to completely change the skin care products of her face and body. The choice of new cosmetics during this period should be approached very carefully, especially if you suffer from allergies or you have a predisposition to allergic reactions. It is best to care for the skin of the body with moisturizers for children’s skin during pregnancy – such creams and lotions undergo more strict control before entering the sale.
Most women during pregnancy do not refuse to use decorative cosmetics. This is understandable – during this period, expectant mothers also want to look beautiful. But, when purchasing decorative cosmetics, they should only choose the one on which there is an “hypoallergenic” inscription. In addition, buying shadows, carcasses or lipsticks, a woman bearing a baby should carefully read the composition of decorative cosmetics and watch her shelf life.
