The Importance Of Moisturization During Pregnancy

Advice columns for mothers to be often focus on nutrition or clothing style.  However, your skin is the foundation of both a healthy and a fashionable look.  Since your pregnancy will affect the way that your skin looks and feels, moisturization becomes one of the most important tools in your battle for beautiful skin that will bounce back promptly.

Go Natural

One of the first tricks in pregnancy moisturization is going natural.  Your body is reacting to everything that comes into your system at this point, often in unusual ways.  Acne, rashes, itching, tightness, and sudden flaking can often be alleviated by switching to a more organic moisturizer. There are lots of pregnant oils on the market but these can be expensive and, they are not really needed.  Any natural oil will be just as effective.

Some of the top choices for all natural ingredients for moisturizers during pregnancy include:

Shea Butter (needs to be whipped)
Olive Oil
Aloe vera
Vitamin E
Coconut Oil
Evening Primrose Oil
Avocado Oil
Coco Butter (Needs to be whipped)

You can also make your own moisturizer by combining your favorite oils with Shea butter and whipping it with a hand mixer until it is light and fluffy. It’s so easy!

Read labels carefully for additives.  Be aware of fragrances also, as pregnancy can make your skin more sensitive to scent elements.

Think Extra Rich

While your face may be generating more oil as your hormone levels fluctuate, the rest of your body can end up drier.  This is especially true in areas where you are expanding rapidly – which includes ankles, knees, thighs, and glutes as well as the stomach area.  As a result, you will need to increase the richness of your moisture products to keep your skin flexible and comfortable throughout your pregnancy. Whipped Shea Butter is ideal for this

Cover Every Inch

Before your pregnancy, you may have a basic moisturization routine that hits your main dry areas.  Since your skin can change in unexpected ways during pregnancy, you may find that areas you’ve never struggled with before suddenly an issue.

For this reason, you need to alter your moisture routine during pregnancy to include every inch of your skin.  This will help you keep your whole body comfortable, balanced, and happy throughout your pregnancy.
