Pregnancy is a time of joy, but it also comes with its fair share of changes and challenges, including changes in your skin. Many expectant mothers wonder if they can continue using their favourite SKIN-RG products during pregnancy, but also what products you should maybe alter in your skincare routine. After all, a healthy and radiant complexion can boost your confidence and make you feel your best during this special time.
In this blog post, we'll explore the ins and outs of using skincare products while pregnant and offer guidance on making safe and informed choices.
Understanding the Changes in Your Skin During Pregnancy
Before delving into skincare products, it's important to understand how pregnancy affects your skin. Hormonal fluctuations, particularly increased levels of estrogen and progesterone, can lead to various skin changes, including:
Hyperpigmentation: Often referred to as the "mask of pregnancy" or melasma, hyperpigmentation causes darkening of the skin, particularly on the face.
Acne: Some women may experience breakouts due to hormonal changes.
Stretch marks: As your body grows to accommodate your growing baby, stretch marks may appear on the abdomen, breasts, and thighs.
Sensitive skin: Hormonal changes can make your skin more sensitive and prone to irritation.
Changes in skin texture: Your skin may become drier or oilier during pregnancy.
Pregnancy often brings about hormonal changes that can lead to various skin issues, including sensitivity and acne. A gentle cleanser is essential to remove dirt, oil, and makeup without over-drying or irritating the skin. Some pregnant women also experience an increase in acne due to hormonal changes. A good cleanser can help keep your pores clean and prevent acne breakouts by removing bacteria.

SPF is a must
Pregnancy hormones can make your skin more prone to hyperpigmentation, where certain areas become darker. SPF can help prevent or minimise this skin concern by shielding your skin from UV-induced pigmentation changes. Protecting your skin from the sun is a fundamental aspect of maintaining overall skin health. Healthy skin can contribute to your comfort and confidence during pregnancy.

Skin brightening secret serum
Pregnancy hormones can sometimes lead to hyperpigmentation or the development of dark patches on the skin. Vitamin C can help reduce the appearance of these pigmentation changes. This protection is essential for maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin, especially during pregnancy when skin may be more prone to oxidative stress. Check out the Phoenix Super C TETRA Eye + Face Serum. Phoenix provides a 360° anti-aging solution, brightening, firming and smoothing skin for a clean, ethical daily serum that performs - giving you that extra glow during pregnancy.
Don’t neglect body care
Pregnancy can lead to changes in skin texture and moisture levels. Body oils are excellent for providing intense hydration, helping to combat dryness, itching, and flakiness that some pregnant women experience. Many expectant mothers experience itching as their skin stretches. Body oils can provide relief by soothing and moisturising the skin, reducing discomfort. Our quickly absorbed oil gives super moisturised and super toned skin fast. Specifically designed to calm, soothe and de-stress. That’s where the Aromatic Body Oil 5 in 1 comes in. Targeting areas of concern, including bingo wings, cellulite accumulation, bum, bust and tummy areas. Just massage using circular motions.
