PREGNANCY SKINCARE ROUTINE
The article will be talking about the best PREGNANCY SKINCARE ROUTINE that is recommended.
Naturally, We all have lots of products in our cabinet to keep our skin glowing and beautiful but once you are pregnant a whole lot of change creeps in.
Your skin can change dramatically. Increased hormone levels disrupt your skin’s delicate balance, speed up dehydration,
Make your skin more sensitive, and decrease your skin’s ability to resist dirt, wind, and UV rays.
YES, you need a pregnancy skincare routine that is safe for both you and your baby.
Here are our recommendations for the best pregnancy skincare routine.
Moisturize in The Morning
Nothing feels as good as a rich moisturizer after a shower. You mustn’t be pregnant before you start adding moisturizing to your morning skincare routine.
There is enough reason to moisturize, especially in the morning aside from being pregnant.
Keeping your skin moisturized while pregnant can be difficult, but it’s even more important and necessary.
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, itchy skin that can make your pregnancy more frustrating than it needs to be.
I suggest applying a pregnancy skincare product like LASHI GLOW CREAM to keep your skin soft and supple.
this can be applied after using LASHI PREGNANCY SOAP and you can also make it spicy by adding
Add Hydration to your Pregnancy Skincare Routine
Moisturizing and hydrating are two different things when it comes to skincare.
Although they sound familiar but are quite different when it comes to skincare.
The main responsibility of a moisturizer is to set a barrier between the air and your skin to keep water from evaporating.
Hydrators, on the other hand, are formulated to actually increase the water content of your skin.
Naturally, you would want to hydrate the body first to put moisture into your skin, followed by a moisturizer to seal the hydration throughout the day.
Used together, they form the foundation of any good pregnancy skincare routine.
Exfoliate Once a Week Before Bed
It is important to Exfoliate your skin whether you’re pregnant or not.
Exfoliation helps to remove the microscopic dead cells that can clog your pores. With those dead cells gone, and the new, fresh skin uncovered,
Your moisturizer and hydrator can penetrate deeper to where they are most effective.
One of the most well-known exfoliants is baking soda. It’s all-natural, affordable, won’t harm your baby, is gentle on your skin, and can be used on any part of your body.
HOW TO ADD BAKING SODA TO YOUR PREGNANCY SKINCARE ROUTINE
- Baking soda
- Vitamin E oil (optional)
- Add 1 tablespoon baking soda to a small glass bowl.
- Mix in a few drops of water (it doesn’t take much).
- Add a drop or two of Vitamin E oil (optional).
- Mix well.
If the mixture is too thick, continue adding drops of water until you’ve created a paste.
Before applying the baking soda paste, splash some lukewarm water on your face to prepare the skin.
Then, apply the baking soda by rubbing in small circular motions. Continue to massage the baking soda into your skin for 3 minutes.
Finally, rinse your face with lukewarm water until all the baking soda is removed and pat dry with a clean, soft towel.
It is recommended to exfoliate twice per week.
Stretch Marks Treatment and prevention
For expectant and postpartum moms, treating and preventing stretch marks is an important part of a pregnancy skincare routine.
During pregnancy, the body stretches, as a result, causing stretch marks to surface on the body.
It’s not totally bad for stretch marks to occur during pregnancy, but it can make the skin loses its beauty and its confidence.
I recommend using LASHI ANTI STRETCH MARK OIL to get rid of stretch marks and also prevention
This helps minimize the scarring and fine lines that may form as your skin stretches to make room for your baby.
