During pregnancy many women will experience dramatic changes to their skin’s complexion. Without a doubt one of the most common skin change that occurs with pregnant women is sudden breakouts. The cause of blemishes and pimples during pregnancy is directly related to the spike in hormone levels. This causes your glands to produce an abundance of oil, often resulting in clogged pores. Luckily, these breakouts are rarely as severe as those some women encounter during adolescence. In most cases they will soon subside after giving birth.
Still, some of us would rather not deal with pimples during pregnancy and instead exude a wonderful pregnancy glow. Good news – this is now completely possible using pregnancy safe skin care products like Amalou Skin®.
Prevent Pregnancy Pimples Safely & Naturally
In order to prevent pimples during pregnancy, it is helpful to return to a routine of washing your face often. However, please do not return to using the same skin care products of your adolescence. Stay away from medicated acne creams. Many contain harmful substances that may increase the risk of birth defects. It is also recommended to avoid abrasive scrubs or exfoliants. Pregnant skin is far too sensitive for these treatment options. If it is questionable, do not use it.
Vitamin A derivatives, such as Acutane, retinoilds, retinol or salicylic acid, and benzoyl peroxide are often used to address acne or aging skin issues. Concerns about potential links to birth defects make these ingredients questionable for women who are pregnant.
Commonly used parabens like methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, benzylparaben, and ethylparaben act as preservatives but have been implicated in numerous health concerns such as cancer, allergies and estrogen imbalances.
Petrolatum, or petroleum jelly, is often used as a skin softening agent but is possibly linked to breast cancer. Other chemicals that concern activist consumer groups include sodium laureth sulfate and phthalates, which are commonly found in personal care products for lathering, fragrance, and a variety of other uses.
