Keep These in Mind for Pregnancy Skin Care
We’ve put together a list of 5 must-have tips to keep in mind if you want to ace your pregnancy skincare.
Tip #1: Opt for Natural & Organic Skincare Products
During pregnancy, using natural and organic skincare products becomes essential for several reasons. Natural ingredients are free from harmful chemicals that could harm the developing baby. Organic products do not have toxins, ensuring a safer option for both the mother and fetus.
Additionally, natural skincare is gentle and less likely to cause skin irritations. These are common during pregnancy due to hormonal changes. The no-fear factor of using organic products allows pregnant women to embrace self-care. There is no worry about adverse effects on their health or their unborn child's well-being.
Avoid mainstream ingredients like retinoids or isotretinoin during pregnancy. Read more about ingredients to avoid during pregnancy. You will then make the right decision for your pregnancy skincare.
Bonus Tip - Try picking sustainable brands that also look after the environment! In the long run, they are definitely going to benefit us and the upcoming generation!
Tip #2: Intense Moisturisation
Nothing says glowing skin like when you use the right moisturizer for your skin. When it comes to pregnancy skin care, moisturization becomes all the more important.
As the body prepares for childbirth, it experiences increased blood flow and stretching of the skin. This leads to dryness, itchiness, and potential stretch marks. Moisturizing regularly helps ease discomfort, soothes itchy skin, and maintains skin elasticity.
Use good quality natural ingredients to moisturize. Ingredients like Rosehip Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, or Shea Butter are sought after. A facial oil like rosehip seed oil for pregnancy is an incredible moisturizer. It is also known as Liquid Gold. It moisturised and nourishes from within and helps with hyperpigmentation. It’s a great multipurpose moisturizer for pregnancy skincare.
Tip #3: Prioritise Overnight Repair
Your skin does most of its repair in the night. So why not help it do the work better while you get the sleep you deserve (at least on most nights!).
A simple minimalist product that does the the work for you is all you need. Empress Naturals’ Luxe Night Elixir is a staple for all pregnancy skincare kits. This luxurious elixir is specially crafted with potent, concentrated active ingredients that work wonders for your skin. From targeting hydration to smoothing fine lines, it's great to rejuvenate your skin.
From time to time, maximize your overnight repair by doing a self-massage. When you find yourself craving some extra TLC, a self-massage will soothe your joints or feet.
Tip #4: Eat Right
Maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet is crucial for radiant skin during pregnancy. Add plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to provide essential vitamins and minerals that promote skin health. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, nuts, and seeds help retain skin moisture and reduce inflammation.
Stay hydrated by drinking an ample amount of water daily. Limit sugary and processed foods to prevent skin issues. A well-rounded diet will benefit your baby's development and enhance your skin's beauty.
Tip #5: Be Kind To Yourself
Finally, and most importantly don't forget to give yourself some grace. Pregnancy is hard and it certainly does not get easier as you move forward in life. Pregnancy can bring various changes to your skin, and it's essential to be patient and gentle with yourself.
Embrace the natural transformations and avoid stressing over imperfections. Hormonal fluctuations may cause occasional breakouts. But, stressing about them can worsen the condition. Practice self-care and use skincare products suited for your changing skin needs. Taking it one day at a time ensures a positive and fulfilling pregnancy skincare experience.
