Caring for your skin
Changes to the skin during pregnancy
During pregnancy, the influx of female hormones in the blood changes the equilibrium of your skin. Thyroid hormones stimulate sweat secretion, which can lead to water loss, while adrenal hormones weaken the skin’s resistance. In this more delicate state, your skin can easily become dehydrated.
At the same time, the volume of blood in your system increases and blood circulation and microcirculation in the skin slow, making your skin more easily irritated.
Weakened and dry, your skin can become uncomfortable, at times rough, causing tightness and itchiness.
To prevent these annoyances, it is essential that you treat your skin with the most appropriate products in order to nourish it, and that you moisturize and soothe it every day throughout your pregnancy.
