Pregnancy is the most wonderful period in the life of every woman, but even at this time the state of the future mother can be overshadowed by some troubles. Now my second pregnancy is coming to an end and I can draw certain conclusions.
Both for the first and for the second time, toxicosis was the biggest problem for me, as I wrote in my last topic, and skin problems that appeared in the first trimester and do not leave me until now.
I have a naturally light skin, and on it, as you know, acne and inflammation are seen more clearly than on the dark one. And these unpleasant surprises both in the first and in the second pregnancy on my skin were enough.
Doctors explain the occurrence of skin problems hormonal changes that accompany a woman throughout pregnancy. As a rule, the skin of a pregnant woman loses its natural moisture and becomes more sensitive, suffering from the occurrence of acne, ulcers and inflammatory processes.
Acne and inflammations
The most important rule in the care of the skin of a pregnant woman is her intense moisturizing. In this case, moisturizers are useful, the choice of which depends on your personal preferences and habits. For me, the best option was the most common children’s cream Antoshka, which I use in the evening, and the day cream of the trademark Grandmother Agafi’s recipes.
Especially often various irritations appear on the skin, covered with tonal means, which include loose powder or concealer. These funds clog pores, and therefore there are various unpleasant phenomena. Therefore, cosmetologists recommend as little as possible to use these tools for pregnant women.
Ruddy cheeks and pigmentation
If you notice that the skin of your face has become an undesirable reddish tint, do not be intimidated. This phenomenon is associated with the expansion of blood vessels, which may accompany a pregnant woman. After childbirth, these reddenings disappear without a trace. However, if you want to get rid of them, not waiting for childbirth, get a cream against rosacea.
Often, under the influence of the sun, the skin of the face and neck of a pregnant woman may become covered with small specks of brown color or, on the contrary, during sunburn, there may be white areas on the face that are not at all affected by the sun’s rays.
Doctors recommend pregnant women are less likely to be in the sun. Since it is unrealistic not to leave the house even in the hottest weather, always wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses with large glasses.
