Skincare conditions for mothers
During pregnancy, your skin endured rapid stretching and then sudden rapid shrinking. This can leave your stomach looking, and feeling, very out of shape. Not only that, it can leave you feeling self-conscious about the way your body now looks. While this is totally normal and you should embrace all of the changes that motherhood brings into your life, it’s understandable if you want to regain confidence in your body.
Remember that during pregnancy, your baby absorbs nutrients from your body to help them grow and flourish. So this does mean that your body (especially your skin) will now be paying the price. Have you noticed that your skin is dry, cracked, and even prone to breakouts? Your hormones have contributed toward some of this, but don’t worry, it’s not permanent!
As you may have already guessed, the health of your skin starts from what you’re putting into your body. Since your body has lost so many nutrients bringing your bundle of joy into the world, it’s sometimes recommended to try multivitamins to bring your body back up to speed. These are especially useful if you’re choosing to breastfeed!
You may want to consider approaching a skincare consultant. Certified skincare consultants are trained in working directly with clients to develop a skincare routine that works for them. You’ll undergo a skincare assessment where they’ll identify any underlying skin issues. They’ll then recommend products with active ingredients that directly address your skin’s needs! You’ll walk away with a routine that works.
