While pregnancy can be one of the most exciting and beautiful time of a women’s life sometimes it can come with some unwanted turn of events. We all heard about the beautiful glow that radiates through the skin when someone is expecting a baby but not many women talk about the times when their skin actually took a turn to the worst and instead of the glow they ended up struggling with dull, inflamed, sensitive skin with acne breakouts.
Even though the skin can be very unpredictable during pregnancy and hormonal imbalances certainly can be an underlying trigger for developing skin inflammation there is a lot that you can do to get your skin back to a healthier state and control your breakouts during this process.
Having a pregnancy-safe daily skincare routine with gentle exfoliation and lots of hydration will repair your skin barrier and helps keep those hormonal breakouts at bay.
Natural pregnancy-safe supplements will provide your skin with essential omega fatty acids for proper skin function, reduce inflammation in the body and aid your digestion.
Eating an anti-inflammatory diet will not only support your skin health but also be essential for the baby’s proper development too. Reducing sugar, dairy, and processed foods and increasing your organic fruit, vegetables and healthy fats in your daily diet will nourish your cells and provide the right nutrition for the health of both mama and the baby too.
