Skin care and pregnancy!

Real recommendations for real changes during pregnancy.

Caring for your skin.

Your belly isn’t the only thing that goes through changes during pregnancy. Your skin will go through some changes too.

For some women, pregnancy delivers breakouts, discoloration, acne, and more. These are caused by increased hormone levels. Increased hormone levels disrupt your skin’s pH balance, speed up dehydration, make your skin more sensitive, and decrease your skin’s ability to resist dirt, wind, and UV rays. Your current skin care routine may need a little change.

Here are a few recommendations for a better pregnancy-safe skin care routine.

 

Moisturize in the morning

Nothing feels as good as a rich moisturizer after a bath or shower.

Keeping your skin moisturized while pregnant can be a little difficult but it’s even more important. On top of all the hormones that can agitate your skin, parts of your body are growing, expanding, and stretching. This can lead to tight and itchy skin.

 

The Sebamed Anti Dry Hydrating Body Lotion is ideal for sensitive dry skin.

  • The active formula with highly concentrated rapeseed Phytosterols helps to soothe sensitive, dry skin and relieves tension and irritation.
  • Gentle care complex supports the natural moisture content of the skin, keeping it firm and smooth
  • Lipid reservoirs are replenished to restore the skin’s natural moisture balance. They smooth the skin and increase its elasticity.

 

Exfoliate once a week

Exfoliating is important for your skin whether you’re pregnant or not. It removes the microscopic dead cells that can clog your pores.

 

The Sebamed Gentle Scrub removes dirt particles, excessive sebum and dead skin cells.

  • Gentle pore deep cleansing reduces skin impurities
  • Refines the complexion and mattifies the skin

 

Treat and prevent stretch marks

Treating and preventing stretch marks is an important part of a pregnancy-safe skin care routine. We recommend massaging a stretch mark treatment into vulnerable areas like your stomach and hips every morning and evening for at least 2 months postpartum.

 

Care for your chest and neck.

As you gain weight during your pregnancy, other parts of your skin will need attention too. Don’t forget your chest and neck when embarking on your pregnancy-safe skin care routine.

 

Breakouts and acne

The increase in progesterone levels also triggers more sebum (oil) production, causing breakouts.

The Sebamed Care Gel prevents and combats blackheads and pimples and restores the skin’s balance.

  • Calming care in all forms of acne
  • The pH 5.5 promotes the natural barrier function of the skin’s acid mantle

The Sebamed Spot Control Gel is an antibacterial gel that reduces irritation and dries pimples out.

  • Fast relief from pimples
  • Care complex with Panthenol supports the skin’s regeneration
