5 Skin Care Tips for First-Time Mamas

Hormones raging? Yeah, we get it, mama! It’s just another part of pregnancy to get used to. With all these changes going on, you may notice a change in your skin. Don’t be alarmed – this is 100% normal. Fortunately, there are ways to deal with these changes. We’re here to share five tips that can help.
#1: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. From your face, all the way down to that cute belly of yours. It is important to keep your skin moisturized. Not only will it keep your skin from getting dry and cracking, but it will help minimize stretch marks. It’s a good idea to get in the habit of massaging your belly at least once per day.

#2: Drink your h2o. Keep your complexion shining bright and flush those toxins out of your body! Drinking enough water is important at all times, especially during pregnancy. Not only good for mama, but good for baby, as it can help maintain sufficient amniotic fluid in the sac for the baby to be comfortable.

#3: Change your make-up. It’s no secret that your face may begin to breakout with your changing hormones. One way to beat acne is to change your make-up and/or routine. You may want to switch to using a foundation for oily skin, or opt for a loose powder to avoid clogging pores.

#4: Stick to a routine. We know you are tired and just want to hit the sack, but please remember to wash your face before bed. Sticking to a solid routine will help keep your skin in the clear, and acne at bay. Use a mild cleanser to remove excess oil without drying your skin out.

#5: Eat the right foods. Hey, remember that little cutie growing in you? Eating the right food will not only help keep your skin healthy, but will keep your interior happy, too. There are a number of essential nutrients that your growing baby needs, so eating healthy is important – on the inside, and out.

The bottom line is to take care of yourself. Embrace these changes that your body is going through, and realize that they are not permanent! Give your body and skin the care that it needs, and you will find that it is much easier to get through. Good luck!
