Pregnancy will have huge changes in their bodies. This is due to hormonal changes. In order to limit the negative effects on your body at this time, mothers should adjust the skin care regimen. This mode should be gentle for the mother but also safe for children. 

The Pregnancy Skin Care Routine


The skin of the mothers will become drier during pregnancy. You should use mild cleansing products, less detergent and no toxic chemicals. Using warm water to cleanse your face will help deepen the pores, help deep cleanse and hydrate your skin, preventing further dryness. Wash up to 2 times a day.

In the first three months, there may be acne appearing. In some special cases, acne develops throughout the pregnancy. Products containing organic ingredients such as Purely Ageless from Oasis Advanced Wellness or Hydra-Tone ™, will help you cope with this problem.

You should not use prescription acne remedies, retinoids, or products containing salicylic acid during pregnancy. Although no study has shown that these components are related to congenital malformation of the orthopedic system. However, none of these studies have completely confirmed their safety. So, it is best to avoid using these components.
