During pregnancy, your skin is going through some changes that can affect it. While it's important to keep up with your usual routine, there are some things you should know about skin care during pregnancy.
During pregnancy, your skin will become more oily.
During pregnancy, your skin will become more oily than usual. You'll need to use a lot of moisturizer and sunscreen, along with makeup and skincare products.
Your body needs more moisture than usual.
You need more moisture in the air. You’re going to be sweating more, which means your skin is going to get drier than usual and it will require more hydration.
Your skin is also more likely to be dry than normal because of hormonal changes during pregnancy—this can lead to dry patches or even worse: acne! The hormone progesterone suppresses oil production by lowering sebum secretion, which makes you prone to breakouts when you're pregnant (but not if you're not).
Your skin will be very sensitive during pregnancy due to hormonal changes.
Pregnancy is a time of change. The hormones are flowing and your body has gone through some major changes. Your skin is more sensitive, which can lead to breakouts and rashes. If you're pregnant, you'll need to be extra careful when it comes to skincare—but there are ways that you can keep yourself well-groomed even while giving birth.
If you're looking for a way to treat yourself while pregnant (or even if you aren't), consider investing in some nice skincare products from Sephora's brand collection! We've selected some of our favorite options below:
It can be hard for your skin to keep up with the demands of your body's demands when you're pregnant.
You might be wondering how your skin can get so dry during pregnancy. The first thing to understand is that it's not a normal state of affairs; your body is actually doing its best to keep itself from becoming dehydrated by sending more water into the amniotic sac. This can make your skin very dry and flaky, especially if you don't put any extra moisturizer on after showering or bathing.
The good news is that once you give birth (and especially if there are complications), your body will start making its own natural oils again—and those oils will help restore hydration!
If your lips aren't dry and chapped, they'll be smooth and soft instead of cracked and peeling after being exposed to water all day.
If your lips aren't dry and chapped, they'll be smooth and soft instead of cracked and peeling after being exposed to water all day. Use a lip balm that's formulated with shea butter or cocoa butter. That will keep your lips soft while providing extra moisture.
If you need something more intense, try chapstick! It's easy to find at any drugstore these days—just look for one with SPF in it (like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Daily Moisturizing Lip Treatment SPF 15). You can also use one of the many different types of chapsticks available on the market today: some contain exfoliating beads like Burt's Bees Original Beeswax Lip Balm; others are moisturizing like Smashbox Instant Age Repair Serum Moisturizer Lip Treatment; still others have vitamins A & E added into them which make them super hydrating while also protecting against free radical damage caused by sun exposure so they last longer than regular stick formulas do without feeling greasy on our lips throughout the day!
Applying sunscreen 20 mins before going outside is a good idea if you're working out or going to the beach at least once a week.
Sunscreen is a must. Always use sunscreen as it offers some degree of protection against UVA and UVB rays that can harm your skin, causing wrinkles and premature aging.
If you're working out or going to the beach at least once a week, applying sunscreen 20 mins before going outside is a good idea if you don't want to get burned by the sun's rays.
Pregnancy is a great time to try new skincare products!
You will have more skin problems than usual, so it's important to use the right products. If you are not familiar with your skin type and how it changes during pregnancy, I recommend doing some research on the Internet or talking with a friend who has had babies before.
You might notice that your face needs more moisturizer than usual because of hormonal changes in your body (especially for women who have been having regular periods). Your hair may feel dry too—if this happens and makes you uncomfortable then try using an oil-based conditioner instead of water-based ones; both work well but tend to weigh down fine strands more than thick ones like mine do now (I used some from my sister's stash). Makeup artists often recommend using foundation during pregnancy because it provides even coverage over areas where there is extra fat under the surface (like cheeks) without looking caked up everywhere else around those areas either!
I hope this article has given you some motivation to try new skincare products during your pregnancy! I think it's always a great time to start using better products for the skin, so if you're looking for a good starter kit or some advice on which brands are worth trying out, let me know in the comments below.
