Piel en el embarazo, ¿cómo cuidarla?

Skin during pregnancy, how to care for it?

During pregnancy there are many changes at the hormonal level, which end up affecting both our body and our mind. Obviously our reproductive system transforms, but so does our skin.

Prevention as a basis

When thinking about the skin, surely the first thing that crosses your mind is the word “stretch marks”. These usually appear on the abdomen, hips, legs and breasts. The truth is that a large part of its appearance depends on DNA (whether our skin is more elastic or less), but the care we take during this period also greatly helps.

  • Moisturizes the skin. Hydration during pregnancy is essential to prevent the skin from drying out and stretch marks appearing. Furthermore, we want to highlight that it is as important to nourish our skin on the outside (with oils and creams) as it is on the inside (drinking plenty of water).
  • Use of sun protection. Whatever season it is and whether you are pregnant or not, it is very important to use sun protection daily. But it is true that during pregnancy the levels of estrogen and progesterone increase, which makes it much easier for spots to appear on our skin. We recommend using good specific sunscreens for the face and body.
  • Take care of your diet. It is advisable to maintain a healthy diet where fruits and vegetables predominate and avoid fried foods and sugars.
