Pregnancy brings hormonal changes which can translate into an increase in oil secretion, which may lead to breakouts. However, pregnancy can render your normal skincare routine unsuitable as you will need to avoid products containing alcohol and fragrance which can worsen inflammation. The good news is that glycolic acid and other AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) products derived from natural ingredients (for example, sugar cane) are both safe and effective in keeping your skin clear of dead skin cells and clogs.
Photosensitivity and hyperpigmentation
Androgens rushing through your body can sometimes darken areas of the skin, a condition usually known as 'pregnancy marks' or melasma. Although hyperpigmentation is more common in women with darker complexions, it can also be a hereditary trait. So, if members of your family have had this condition, the chances of the skin being affected are higher. Applying sunscreen daily is helpful. Using mineral rather than chemical sun protection is a better choice, as mineral sunscreens are often less irritating and work by using physical filters such as zinc or titanium oxide to block UV rays. Using Vitamin C is also an effective way to treat hyperpigmentation, and works as an antioxidant to break down dark spots, increase cell turnover and help stop the creation of new dark melanin areas.
A great way to remedy dry or flaky skin is to add hyaluronic acid to your routine. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring hydrating agent which works to restore the skin's moisture content and defend it against moisture loss. It holds up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, giving your skin a plumping boost. Using a hydrating cleanser and moisturising with nourishing oils and lipid-rich moisturisers also helps keep your natural moisture barrier intact.
