Pregnancy is a special time with the impending arrival of your little one being one of the most important and memorable times in your life. At the same time, it can be one of the most challenging times, particularly for your skin.
Pregnancy hormones can cause a number of skin issues namely hormonal acne, hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin in certain areas such as across the face), stretch marks and sensitive skin.
During pregnancy it is sometimes difficult to continue using the same skincare regime you were following before you became pregnant. This is mainly down to the types of ingredients in some skincare that are perfectly fine to use when you’re not pregnant but are best avoided during pregnancy.
You may also find that you need products that you never needed before as you may have developed certain skin conditions during your pregnancy. Stretch marks are a common pregnancy-related skin condition and whilst many people develop stretch marks at some stage of their life, you can help to prevent them and the appearance of any existing stretch marks can be treated.
Hyperpigmentation is another common skin condition that develops during pregnancy, often more common amongst people with darker skin. Traditionally, this has been difficult to treat during pregnancy but there are now organic, natural products available to help lighten the appearance of Melasma, Chloasma and sun damaged skin.
Take a look through the new Spoiled Mama range for a host of natural, organic products available for use during pregnancy. You’ll find products to help swollen legs and ankles to brightening products to help treat the appearance of pigmented skin.
