While pregnancy is a wonderful experience, mums-to-be experience all kinds of changes to their bodies, particularly to their skin. Read on to learn more about the common skin changes, and which of our natural skincare products we recommend incorporating into your new pregnancy skincare routine.
Acne and inflammation
Developing acne during pregnancy is very common. Hormonal changes can cause the sebaceous glands on the skin to grow and in turn produce more sebum, a natural oil which protects our skin and helps it to retain moisture. However, too much sebum can clog pores, leading to acne and breakouts, so it’s very important to wash and cleanse skin thoroughly!
Try the Burt’s Bees Peach & Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub. The willow bark in this 99% natural formula gently exfoliates skin to remove dirt and excess oil from pores, while peach stone polishes the surface for a smooth, radiant complexion.
Hormonal changes can cause the skin to be more sensitive than usual, so we recommended switching to the use of gentler products. Try the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser. Our hypoallergenic formula contains aloe to soothe inflamed skin, and cotton extract to help skin retain its moisture, keeping it soft and hydrated.
