Pregnancy is a naturally lovely time in a woman's life, and the skincare products we use should reflect that. However, this isn't always the case. Did you know that just because something says "gentle" or "all-natural" on the label doesn't guarantee it's non-toxic or safe to use during pregnancy? The good news is that all of Eminence Organics products are safe for all stages of pregnancy.
But creating a skin care routine at any time may be difficult, but what about during pregnancy? This brings up a whole other set of issues. Your skin can alter in a variety of ways during pregnancy, and it might act very differently than it does when you are not pregnant.
Read on for some suggestions, but remember to always check with your doctor before trying any new skin care products or professional treatments while you're pregnant.
For some expecting mothers, their skin fails to achieve the desired pregnancy glow and instead becomes dry and sensitive. “Hormone fluctuations may cause the face to become dry, losing moisture and oil, which can cause the skin to feel itchy, red, and irritated,”. Try using a mild, oil-based cleanser like the Stone Crop Cleansing Oil and a soothing face oil like our Rosehip Triple C & E Firming Oil to help counteract this.
When your baby starts to show, the skin surrounding your tummy stretches, resulting in stretch marks. While these tiger stripe-like scars do not appear in everyone, however fluctuating hormone levels seem to have a role. If you have a family history of stretch marks, you may be at a higher risk. This stretching of the skin may be extremely irritating, tight, and painful, in addition to how it looks.
Hydrating the skin is one of the most effective strategies to relieve stretch marks. Drink lots of water and use rich, moisturizing lotions on your stomach area to keep your skin in good health. Our Apricot Body Oil is a beloved Eminence Organics product for easing the discomfort of stretched skin. This award-winning lotion nourishes and moisturizes the skin with grapeseed, jojoba, apricot kernel extract, and seabuckthorn oils. Mix a few drops of the oil with our Coconut Firming Body Lotion for the ultimate hydration therapy. This soothing combination will not only reduce the appearance of stretch marks, but it will also moisturize and soothe the skin.
Expect a lasting sense of nausea, as well as changes in attitude and sleep habits, while you're expecting. Essential oils and herbs are a safe and natural way to deal with all of these problems and more. "Some essential oils are safe to use in the second and third trimesters, as your baby is more developed," according to Fit Pregnancy. Lavender, chamomile, and ylang ylang are some of the oils that can help to quiet the mind, relax the body, and aid in sleep. Please with your doctor before using aromatherapy at home while pregnant, as with all of our suggestions. Because pregnancy symptoms and sensitivities differ from person to person, it's critical to be safe at all times.
Aromatherapy may be easily and mildly incorporated into daily life by using these moderate smells into skin care. Our Soothing Chamomile Tonique and our Lavender Age Corrective Night Concentrate are two excellent options. A spray of the Soothing Chamomile Tonique will help you relax and unwind. With relaxing components including lavender, chamomile, and aloe, this lotion relaxes the senses and nourishes the skin, making it suitable for pregnant and nursing moms. Our Lavender Age Corrective Night Concentrate replenishes the look of skin with a lovely mild dose of hydration from calming lavender and shea butter.
Hormonal acne is aggravating to deal with since it changes throughout pregnancy, as well as after delivery and nursing. The "pregnancy hormones" HCG and progesterone increase the amount of oil glands in your face during pregnancy. While this gives you that lovely "pregnancy glow," the extra oil can clog your pores, causing hormonal outbreaks. Furthermore, oestrogen levels decline and testosterone levels rise after childbirth, which can result in numerous pimples as the body tries to balance itself.
One to two drops of our Eight Greens Youth Serum on the face will help to absorb excess oil, improve the appearance of hormonal breakouts, and keep skin looking youthful and smooth. Our Eight Greens Whip Moisturizer balances and soothes any red, dry skin. Finally, our Eight Greens Phyto Masque (Not Hot) is an excellent weekly therapy for both pregnant and nursing mothers. For dry, sensitive, and troubled skin types, a small coating of this gel mask all over the face is a delight. Without the spiciness of our Eight Greens Phyto Masque - Hot, skin is left looking bright, clear, and radiant.
