Skincare Best Practices During Pregnancy

Radiant skin for two: Nourish your glow from bump to baby!


There are so many questions about what is and what is not safe during pregnancy! It can be overwhelming! Here we break down safe options for common skin concerns during pregnancy and remove the worry.


Pregnancy Induced Acne

Pregnancy-induced acne affects many women during pregnancy. Hormonal changes in the body stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more oil, leading to clogged pores and acne breakouts. The acne may appear on the face, neck, chest, and back. While pregnancy-induced acne can be frustrating, it typically resolves on its own after childbirth. Certain skincare practices may help manage the symptoms and prevent scarring.


Recommendations:

-Revision Skincare Papaya Enzyme Cleanser

-Revision Skincare Brightening Facial Wash

-Salicylic acid (<2%)

-Glycolic acid (<10%)

-Lactic acid

-Azelaic acid


Wrinkle Prevention

Preventing wrinkles during pregnancy involves practicing good skincare habits. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating a balanced diet rich in antioxidants and essential vitamins can help keep the skin healthy and supple. Protecting the skin from sun damage by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and avoiding excessive sun exposure is also important in preventing wrinkles. Incorporating a daily skincare routine that includes gentle cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturization can help keep the skin smooth and hydrated. It's important to use skincare products that are safe for use during pregnancy and to avoid harsh ingredients, such as retinoids and salicylic acid, that can potentially harm the developing baby.

Melasma

Melasma is characterized by dark, irregularly shaped patches of pigmentation that typically appear on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip. Melasma is caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy, particularly an increase in estrogen and progesterone, which can stimulate the production of melanin. While melasma does not pose any health risks, it can be aesthetically distressing for some women. Preventive measures include avoiding prolonged sun exposure and using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. In most cases, melasma fades on its own after pregnancy, but in some cases, it may persist.

-Wear hats

-Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours

-Avoid soy

-Avoid excessive heat


Dry Skin

Dry skin during pregnancy can be caused by hormonal changes resulting in a decrease in the production of natural oils. This can present as rough, scaly, and itchy skin. Preventive measures include using mild, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic soap, avoiding hot baths or showers, and moisturizing the skin regularly with a fragrance-free lotion or cream. Drinking plenty of water and eating a balanced diet rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals can also help maintain healthy skin.

-Hydrating moisturizer

-Essential lipids

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks can occur during pregnancy due to the rapid stretching of the skin. While it is not always possible to prevent stretch marks entirely, there are measures that can help reduce their severity and improve their appearance. Preventive measures include maintaining a healthy weight, staying hydrated, and regularly moisturizing the skin. It's important to avoid harsh soaps or scrubs that can further irritate the skin. Once stretch marks have developed, there are several treatment options available, including topical creams and ointments, laser therapy, and microneedling.
