What causes changes in skin during pregnancy?

 

Hormonal changes during pregnancy can lead to wonderful benefits like the ‘pregnancy glow’ but they may also potentially wreak havoc on your skin and cause it to become more sensitive and reactive, resulting in breakouts. It’s important to notice and care for the changing needs of your skin during and after pregnancy.

Should I change my skincare regimen based on my trimester?

 

Hormones associated with pregnancy change over time and throughout the journey as they are essential to the development of your baby. These hormones may have an impact on your skin and sometimes cause it to become sensitive or reactive.

First trimester:

Pregnancy hormones like HCG are nearly doubling every couple of days which can cause skin to be extra sensitive. This is the perfect time to get on the True Botanicals CALM Regimen, starting with the Calm Pure Radiance Oil! And if those hormone surges are triggering skin breakouts, try using the Pacific Glacial Detoxifying Mask 2-3 times a week.

Second trimester:

Your estrogen levels start to really increase now, and this could result in excessive melanin production, which may darken freckles, dark spots and moles. This is when Chebula Active Immunity Serum and Vitamin C Booster can be incredibly essential to your routine in helping to minimize hyperpigmention, and promote brighter more glowy skin !

Third trimester:  

The third trimester is a time of steady growth as your baby gains weight and gets ready for birth. This is a good time to use the Body Love Sugar Scrub and Pure Radiance Body Oil to nourish the skin on your body and help prevent stretch marks.

Fourth trimester:

At this stage, your skin is dehydrated from all of the hormonal changes. Now is a great time to introduce Moisture Lock Overnight Mask to your routine every evening over your Calm Pure Radiance Oil. Continue to keep up with Chebula Serum and Vitamin C Booster, as well as the Body Scrub & Body Oil, so that you provide the best care for the skin on your face and your belly!
