Expecting a little one soon? Congratulations! It’s such an exciting time in any woman’s life to be expecting new life into the world. Of course, before you welcome your little one into the world, there are several months of pregnancy that need to take place (clearly). Hair and skin can change in a woman during pregnancy and it can be frustrating for many women. If you find that your skin and hair have been changing a bit, we have some tips for managing your hair and skin during pregnancy.
Revamp Your Skin Care Routine
Since your body is going through a lot of changes during pregnancy, you may be noticing that your skin just isn’t looking quite like it did when using your typical products. One of the best things to do to make sure that you’re still making the most of your skin care routine during your pregnancy is to revamp your skin care routine. By revamping that skin care routine, that really means getting some different skin care products. Because the products we use are so impacted by our skin type, and vice versa, when we have a lot of changes internally it can affect the way the products are working on our skin. Take note as to what your skin’s type is really consisting of and adjust your skin care products accordingly. Many experts suggest that using products that are gentle is going to be essential to make sure that you’re keeping your skin healthy and not causing any further irritation.
Let’s face it, most women worry about getting stretch marks during and after pregnancy. One of the best ways to keep your skin healthy and try to avoid or minimize the appearance of stretch marks is to make sure that you’re really taking care of your skin all over your body. That means exfoliating your skin weekly. It’s suggested that you can exfoliate the skin on your body 1-2 times per week for the best results. You can use something like a dry brush or body scrub product to get the benefits from exfoliating, it’s just about what works for you. In addition to exfoliating your skin all over, it’s essential that you’re making moisturizing your skin a priority. Using a quality moisturizing product is going to help keep your skin moisturized, soft and less likely to develop stretch marks or have them be big in size.
Eliminating Hair Oil
It’s common for women to experience a lot of oil production in their hair during their pregnancy. If this is something you’re noticing in yourself, don’t worry there are some great tips to adapt. The first, most important tip is to make sure that you’re not washing your hair every day. Breaking up the amount of days that you wash your hair can be really helpful, in addition many experts suggest using a deep cleansing type of shampoo/conditioner to help get rid of some of the oil build up.
