While being pregnant, you can realize changes in skin tones
and structures, as well as the increased needs of taking care of your skin.
While some women realized that their skin is dryer during pregnancy, others
said that their skin is greasier. Each woman will be different in their special
need, but women should pay attention to using products that are not only
effective but also safe for them and for the babies.
Some women realized that the hormone excess in the body when
they’re pregnant made them have acnes which they had never had when they’re in
high school. Some experts in dermatology and venereology suggest that if you
realize that you have more acnes than usual when being pregnant, you can look
for products having safe dose of acne medication like salicylic acid; pregnant
women should notice that the dose of 2% is good to use while being pregnant. Stay
away from the products that have been left for long time, or need to use
orally. You should avoid acne medication Accutane during pregnancy, as it can
possibly cause birth defects when being used during pregnancy. Consult the
dermatologists if you find that the regular acnes-fighting products which don’t
need prescription are not effective on you.

Dry skin can cause itchiness and irritation. Humidify your
skin every day with a type of cosmetic that use the natural components such as Shea
butter or coconut oil. These natural products are completely safe and effective
in moisturizing your skin. If you want to use moisturizer with artificial
components, check the label before using. Avoid any moisturizer that lists vitamin
A or Retinol as its components. FDA has discovered that the high dose of these
anti-aging additives can cause birth defects and women should avoid them in
order to put their priority on moisturizers having more natural components.

Protect against the sun
Like anyone, pregnant women need to be protected when
they’re in the sun. Normally, the skin gets more sensitive and easier to get
burned in pregnancy, making pregnant women gets skin cancer more easily in the
future. Make sure to cover your skin by using sunscreen with high SPF. While
all sunscreens are safe tom pregnant women, if you’re anxious, you can chose a
type of sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, protective components
that can’t be absorbed by your skin. Take special care of your skin if you have
melasma or freckles, which are excessive increase in pigmentation due to the
hormone excess in your body, staying under the sunlight for too long can make
the situation worse.
