How Does Pregnancy Affect the Skin?

When you are pregnant, the body goes through a number of changes and some of these will affect the behaviour of your skin. Everyone’s experience will differ but the most common skin complaints tend to focus around excessive oil production, acne, inflammation and uneven pigmentation.

These are all down to an extreme fluctuation in hormones which is unavoidable during pregnancy but each condition can be successfully managed with the right products. You may also find that your skin becomes extra sensitive during pregnancy, so avoid using skin care products that contain any harsh ingredients.
