Pregnancy skin – Self

FOR WHAT?

Pregnant skin

Characteristics of skin during pregnancy

  • You suddenly suffer from acne.
  • You suffer from rosacea, pigmentation, melasma, or stretch marks.
  • The skin feels sensitive.

The increased amount of blood in the skin gives the happy few a nice blush and a pregnancy glow. But let’s face it, not everyone can be so lucky. The changing hormone levels often bring on less pleasant skin ailments.

How can you take care of your skin during pregnancy?

DOs

  • Cleanse troubled skin
    Pregnancy acne is caused by the hormone progesterone, which stimulates sebum production. When sebum mixes with dead skin cells, the pores become clogged, and bacteria have free rein. Clean the skin with a mild facial cleanser and use a gentle facial scrub twice a week. So long dull complexion, hello healthy skin!
  • Prevent skin dryness
    Because your skin is extra sensitive now, nourishing, protective ingredients are extremely important. A mild day and night cream restores the moisture balance and protects against harmful external influences.
  • Rub against stretch marks
    During pregnancy, skin can start to itch and become extra dry. Keep skin supple and hydrated with moisturising and softening products. Pay extra attention to your belly and sides, as these are the places where stretch marks occur.

DON’Ts

  • Chemical ingredients
    The ingredients in your care products are partly absorbed by the skin and the body. Avoid creams with artificial perfumes, colourings, parabens and other chemical additives. All those synthetic substances are not good for you and your growing baby. Rather, opt for natural and mild care.

Did you know that…

Many pregnant women tell us that the combination of Body Scrub and Body Butter works wonders in preventing stretch marks?

How to use

While exfoliating, focus on your belly and thighs, as these are the places where stretch marks are most likely to appear. Then spread the body butter evenly over your body until the cream is completely absorbed. Suitable for daily use or whenever your skin needs moisturising and softening.
