Pregnancy Skin Concerns
Some women feel amazing during pregnancy and others find it hard to feel like themselves.
Skin changes like stretch marks, melasma, hemorrhoids, and an itchy belly are common.
We are here to support you through these changes and give you the relief you crave.
Stretch marks occur when skin stretches or shrinks quickly. These severe changes cause the collagen and elastin, that support our skin, to burst.
Your level of Cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands can weaken elastin fibers in the skin.
So what can you do?
Although you can’t use Retinoids or Laser during pregnancy. There are some natural ingredients that can help.
The American Academy of Dermatology has recommended Centella as one of the only natural ingredients that can help prevent stretch marks.
Centella is a flowering herb that improves drainage and microcirculation. This can help target stretch marks and cellulite.
It can be found in our Herbal Relief Body Spray.
Organic oils and butters should also be used daily to promote elasticity and hydration.
Check out our famous Cocoa Shea Belly Butter.
Melasma, also known as the “Mask of Pregnancy” is triggered by hormonal changes during pregnancy. It stimulates melanocytes (color producing cells) in your skin to produce extra pigment. This leads to darkening skin pigment.
Hydroquinone is a bleaching treatment used for melasma but it is ABSOLUTELY unsafe for use during pregnancy.
Instead you can use naturally brightening ingredients like Licorice Root, Strawberry Extract, and Kiwi Extract.
All of these can be found in our Brightening Fruit Essence.
