Most pregnant women understand that the food they eat, beverages they drink during pregnancy can have a profound effect on their health and the health of their baby. But many don’t realize that what they put on their bodies can be just as significant.

Take care of your skin when you are expecting!

During pregnancy, face and body change. Your skin often reacts to hormonal fluctuations, becoming dry and dull.

What happen during you are expecting?

Stretch marks

Stretch marks may appear on hips, stomach, breasts, arms (elastin fibers is ruptured) and can last several months and years

Dull and dry

Your skin needs something, you have to adjust your daily or weekly routine to a maternity routine.

Pregnancy mask

A pregnancy mask may appear from the 4th month (brown pigmentation spots on forehead, cheeks, around eyes and mouth).

While most commonly used products are completely safe, there are a handful of ingredients experts say it’s best to avoid (like retinoids, salicylic acid, hydroxy acids, soy, steroids, …). Many of products pass through the skin and are absorbed into our bodies.
