Why Does Your Skin Change During Pregnancy?

Share:

Pregnancy, oh what a beautiful thing: glowing skin, rosy cheeks and healthier, shinier hair. You would jump for joy (if you weren’t carrying a baby) for the effortless radiant beauty that comes with pregnancy. Although you are expecting, you probably did not expect dry skin concerns or sensitive skin issues during your pregnancy. Take a breather mamas, because it’s completely normal for your skin to change during pregnancy. Here’s why:

Reason 1: Hormonal changes

Hormonal changes are a given during your pregnancy: emotional roller coasters, luscious hair and random cravings you send your husband on a quest for. But fluctuations in hormones can also cause a difference in your skin where it may be more sensitive, dry and even itchy. 

Wear comfy and loose clothing from natural fibres to prevent friction on your skin and put away jewellery and skincare products that are causing you to flare up. 

Reason 2: Excess oil production

During your pregnancy, the changes in hormones stimulate the oil glands to produce more sebum (hello, pregnancy glow!). But with extra oil, your skin is more prone to breakouts. Practise good skincare to keep the excess oil in control. However, take caution when using acne-fighting products that could contain harmful chemicals for mothers-to-be and the baby (such as retinol). 

Your skin will produce more oil if it is not properly moisturised, so don’t skip on moisturiser!  Luckily, Rosken Sensitive Skin Cream is safe for all skin types with a light formulation that is perfect to soothe irritated skin!

Reason 3: Increased blood volume

As a pregnant mother, your blood volume increases to carry the necessary nutrients and oxygen to your baby. Your complexion benefits from this with that famed mama glow! But higher blood volume can cause varicose veins, a common experience for pregnant women. This condition decreases blood flow to your lower body and makes your skin itchy, uncomfortable or even painful in some cases. Get relief from the dry itchiness with Rosken Dry Skin Cream to repair and soothe dry skin in just 30 minutes!

Conclusion

Mothers, it’s completely normal for your skin to experience changes during pregnancy. For the most part, the dryness and itchiness goes away after giving birth. However, do consult your OB/GYN if your dry skin concerns causes you great discomfort. Rosken Skin Repair Products are kind to pregnant mothers with moisturising formulations that are free of skin irritants to repair dry skin and soothe irritated skin that can develop during pregnancy.
