For many women, pregnancy represents a blissful state in which one needs to enjoy with all heart because in just a few months there will not be as nearly as time as before due to constant care of that little helpless creature and that is perfectly normal and nothing to be worried about. But, certain things happen during pregnancy that will leave unpleasant marks upon this special time in any woman’s life. As women gain weight during pregnancy and hormones start to take over their life, the skin undergoes through a real torture. For this reason, it is essential to properly take care of the skin during pregnancy and to prevent whatever could be prevented. Every woman’s desire is to regain the pre-pregnancy look, which primarily means to get out of the pregnancy with no stretch marks or color discolorations. When it comes to hygiene, it is important to use mild soaps and natural baths for the intimate area. However, as stressed before, women are mostly afraid that pregnancy will leave them stretch marks. The unfortunate thing is they cannot be removed completely, only their visibility decreased so it is better to act in time and take care of the skin so it would still look (and make us feel) ravish in a bikini even after giving birth. Using products which contain almond oil will ensure hydration and elasticity of the skin. After each showering massage the oil onto your skin in gentle circular movements, paying special attention to the critical areas like breasts, belly and thighs. A light massage will improve circulation and that is another important issue during pregnancy. Facial skin care during pregnancy also requires a special care since hormones cause hyperpigmentation spots, one more aesthetically unpleasant thing. Luckily, these pass after pregnancy. Still, you should use only mild and non-aggressive facial cleansing products, a facial wash gel and moisturizing milk for face or makeup remover lotion.
Only a few of these tips will help maintain your skin as beautiful as before pregnancy.
