FACIAL AESTHETICS IN PREGNANCY: NURTURING YOUR GLOW FROM BUMP TO BEYOND


KEEP IT SIMPLE.


BUMP: EMBRACING RADIANCE DURING PREGNANCY


Congratulations on this beautiful journey! Whether you’re basking in that coveted pregnancy glow or eagerly awaiting it, skincare might not be your top priority right now. Nausea can leave you feeling less than glamorous, but fret not – simplicity is key.


KEEP IT SIMPLE


If your skin hasn’t undergone major changes, stick to your routine. Prioritise SPF, non-negotiable for its protective benefits, and introduce vitamin C for a bright and radiant complexion.


However, certain actives may need to take a backseat. Listen to your skin, as pregnancy can bring about sensitivity, dryness, redness, itchiness, breakouts, or pigmentation.

Should sensitivity strike, simplify your routine to cleanse, moisturise, and apply daytime SPF. For instant relief, consider SkinCeuticals Phyto Masque. Combat dryness with SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 or HA Intensifier.


Redness, a common woe, finds relief with SkinCeuticals Redness Neutraliser and DermaLux FlexMD LED light sessions.


Hormonal itching, often around stretch marks, can be soothed with hydrating moisturizers like SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 or La Roche-Posay’s Lipikar Baume AP+.

Hormonal acne? Tackle it with SkinCeuticals Blemish & Age Defense Serum after a consultation.


Pigmentation issues? Amp up your SPF.


Pause retinoid products during pregnancy and breastfeeding.


For queries or uncertainties about your products, reach out.


Maintain a healthy lifestyle with good nutrition, hydration, and gentle exercise. Don’t stress too much about skin issues; focus on what you can control.


Book a consultation to discuss your skincare concerns.


BABY: EXTENDING SKINCARE LOVE TO POSTPARTUM


If you’re breastfeeding, the same skincare rules apply. However, if a full skincare routine feels overwhelming in your tired state, fear not. Prioritise cleansing before and after sleep, along with a simple moisturiser and daytime SPF.


Staying hydrated is crucial during breastfeeding, so drink plenty of water. Boost your energy with nuts, seeds, fresh fruits, and vegetables. Incorporate gentle exercises, like a soothing buggy walk, into your routine.


Book in for a consultation to discuss how to keep your skin hydrated during breastfeeding.


BEYOND: NOURISHING YOUR SKIN POST-PREGNANCY


As you transition beyond pregnancy and feeding, it’s time to reintroduce skincare actives. Your skin may have changed, so consider tweaking your routine. Gradually reintroduce retinols at night.
