Simple And Effective Skin Care And Pampering Tips During Pregnancy

Skincare is one of the most taken for granted essentials of many pregnant women when in fact, this is a very important habit that you should not skip. Skin care doesn’t mean that you have to splurge on different skin care products. It simply means that you should not forget the basics of skin care. It is true that during this time, there are products that you cannot use because of the ingredients, but this should not limit you from taking care of your skin

Cleansing Is A Must!

It is important you continue to cleanse using your most trusted gentle cleanser. Dermatologists recommend to use nonresidue and/or glycerin-based facial cleansers. If say your skin is dry, which can happen when you are pregnant, wash with a soapless rinse-off cleanser that is both mild and moisturizing. Never was your face more than twice a day to prevent it from overdrying.

Moisturizing And Sun Protection

It is important not to forget moisturizing and sun protection in your skincare routine. There are so many sun protection products that you can choose from so do not skimp on these products especially now that you are pregnant. Remember that during this time, your hormone levels are elevated which means that it can trigger the development and multiplication of your pigment cells. In short, this can cause facial blotchiness or what we call ‘the mask of pregnancy.’

Body Treatment

Some are adamant to do body treatment for pregnant ladies in Singapore because they think that this is not good for the baby. Sure, there are things that you definitely have to avoid during pregnancy, but going to a spa and have your body pampered while you relax is not one of them. You just need to avoid heat facilities but there are other body treatments that you can do and enjoy while you are pregnant.

Quick And Light Makeup

While you are pregnant, keeping your face dolled up is not a problem as long as you don't have to sit too long in front of your vanity mirror while you do your makeup. Stick with a ‘less-is-more’ makeup routine. Do faster and easier makeup looks. This way, you can keep yourself looking and feeling presentable.

Acne And Oil Issues

During this time, your hormones can go into overdrive, especially if you have an oily or acne-prone skin type. The breakouts will usually happen in the first trimester. To control these breakouts, use pregnancy-safe products that contain glycolic acid, topical erythromycin, and alpha hydroxy. Many dermatologists will not recommend you to use topical retinoids while pregnant. Although there is no conclusive evidence that these ingredients can cause birth defects, it is best to avoid them at the moment.

These are just some of the simplest and easiest skincare tips that you can use while you are pregnant. Carrying that beautiful baby inside your belly for 9 months will not be easy, but that should not deter you from continuing with what you are used to doing, especially when it comes to skincare.
